the only thing that matters

This man would gladly watch the world burn and people suffering and dying and not miss any sleep just as long as he found a way to profit from it. This man only cares for him and his own.

This quote from George Orwell’s 1984 seems eerily relevant today, doesn’t it? It has become ever more clear that power is the one thing, the only thing, that matters to the #BLOTUS and the Republicans in Congress.

If you need an example, which most thinking folks don’t at this point, just look at the complete Republican support of Roy Moore to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. Having another Republican vote in the Senate outweighs any question of improper or immoral behavior.

The many-times accused molester in the Offal Office has said that having a Republican like the accused child molester, Roy Moore, in the Senate is far preferable to having a Democrat, any Democrat, fill the seat. Moore not only has been accused by numerous women of involvement with them as young and underage girls, the man has twice been removed from his seat as Judge.

None of that matters. All that matters, the only thing that matters, is power, pure power.

a circus has to have monkeys

Machiavelli lived in the 15th century, but his methodology for determining the intelligence of a ruler is still valid today. Looking at the sycophants and henchmen around the #BLOTUS tells us a lot, not only concerning his intelligence, but his vision for our country.

The most frightening fact is that this incompetent whiner has intentionally surrounded himself with those whose vision for destroying democracy perfectly coincides with his. From Jeff Sessions to Betsy DeVos, his Cabinet is filled with those antagonistic to the very departments they supposedly lead.

The only picks that actually support the work of their department are those of the Department of Defense and other military postings. But then, this makes sense as all dictators want the strongest military they can afford. That’s what keeps them in power.

#BLOTUS cannot compromise. He cannot negotiate. He cannot get legislation passed. Actually, he would be happy to rule by divine decree.

The question I have, and that is rightfully being raised by many others, is where will the fascination and admiration that #BLOTUS has of the world’s worst dictators lead us? His desire to be a brutal strongman is obvious. ┬áIs his vision for the US to transform our democracy into a Trumptatorship?

The very real and very frightening reality here is that this is our circus, and these are all our monkeys.
