Trump has not ceased to attack the Constitution since the day he took office. He doesn’t know it. He doesn’t respect it. He doesn’t want it, or anything else, to limit his greed and lust for absolute power and control.

I support the Constitution. That means I do not support Trump in any way, form or fashion. He has ignored his oath to protect the Constitution, and instead has consistently attempted to ignore it, get around it, and destroy it. That not only makes him unfit for office, it makes the lying pig both repugnant and deserving of impeachment.

Harsh, yes. But we all know it’s the unvarnished truth. We have all looked down that street, and we have all seen the terrible results.

I couldn’t agree more…

When I was nineteen I swore an oath to defend my country. I have seen nothing in the intervening 50+ years that releases me from that promise.

My tweets, my Facebook posts, and my blog are all attempts to remain faithful to that oath I made when I became a Marine. I love this country far too much to allow a lying whoremonger to destroy all that it stands for around the world.

as Trump’s cruelty increases…

Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.

With the intentional and ever increasing violence and cruelty being enacted against immigrants and asylum seekers, it is time to remember these words of President Roosevelt. The Trump administration is daily ripping away at the true values and character of our nation. Unless we stop this madness we will all live to see the death of democracy as we have known it.

God will not hold us Guiltless

Faithfulness to the Gospel demands nothing less. God will not hold us guiltless for silence in the face of evil.

Bonhoeffer was a German theologian martyred for his opposition to Hitler. His words remind us that authentic spirituality requires a real and costly  discipleship.

passive acceptance is cooperation

It is not enough to silently disagree with the corruption and evil of the current president and his administration. That silence gives tacit approval to the overt racism being spewed. That silence is seen by the predator-in-chief as acquiescence to concentration camps and draconian immigration policies.

We cannot allow our silence to be seen as support. We cannot allow our silence to encourage this cancerous evil in the white house.

Stand up. Speak out. Take action. Resist the evil that you see. In the end it is a spiritual matter.
