This is only too obvious when one looks at the present leadership of our country. The already legendary ignorance of the racist, self-avowed whore-monger in the White House is matched only by his fear, greed and intolerance. It is a volatile combination that is a true existential danger to the values on which our nation was founded.
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.
The shocking silence of the House and Senate Republicans in response to the racist and misogynistic rants of the self-avowed sexual predator now fouling the White House demonstrates their fulsome and complete complicity with the scumbag-in-chief. Their betrayal of their sworn duty to uphold and defend the Constitution demands an accounting.
As we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country, let’s never forget that this cowardly, draft dodger is a lying pig that consistently sides with dictators and our enemies to denigrate those that have honorably served.
Just the facts…the man is a criminal, through and through. And those still supporting him can no longer claim ignorance. They choose to support a lying, racist, xenophobe, whose only aim is to enrich himself while destroying everything good about our country.
There is a growing shame to being a Trump supporter that carries a stench that will not be easily erased. History will remember.
As an avid outdoorsman and one who has be blessed to visit 49 of our 50 states, I stand with Teddy on this. We cannot be silent when it comes to protecting the natural beauty of this country. Corporate greed is insatiable and could not care less about the destruction of the environment.
