When those that care join together with one voice there is unimaginable power. We can truly transform the world. Never be afraid to stand up and speak out. It’s the only way to overcome the lying and the greed.
I have watched the video and have listened to the chaplain’s prayer. It is a theologically-solid prayer, much like I have prayed on many occasions. It was not partisan. It just lifted up the Representatives’ responsibility on behalf of the least of these among us. But, that was far too threatening for that august body.
Paul Ryan fired the chaplain for reflecting the light of Christ in the midst of darkness. Shining the light of Christ’s love in a den of thieves causes them to flee every time.
Standing up for the poor and hungry, especially to the wealthy and powerful elite, is a good way to shorten your career path. It’s also, however, how you stay on the highway to holiness.
Shame on Paul Ryan, and shame on all those in the U.S. House of Representatives who have not stood up against this action.
Mid-terms are coming.
What is interesting to me is that this was the word of the day before #BLOTUS came into power.
I marched in opposition to the Second Gulf War, both in Washington, DC and New York. I spoke out to any who would listen about the grossly immoral actions our nation were taking. I made my voice heard.
Now, I will continue to speak out against those in power who are tearing apart our country and ripping up the very fabric of American society. I see #BLOTUS creating a dangerous personality cult that is far to similar to what Hitler did in Germany in the 1930s. We are already at the place where those in power can enrich themselves while ignoring the needs of the poor and middle classes.
History shows us where this road leads, It isn’t pretty, and it isn’t a place I want us to go.
Trump’s greed and his message of hate must be resisted at every opportunity. I will again take to the streets if the Trump-Russia investigation is derailed by any means. The right to peaceful protest needs to be used while it is still a right.
When those we have elected to lead us fail as dismally as those we now have in leadership, they need to be removed as fast as legally possible and replaced with those who understand that they are elected to serve the citizens, to the other way around.
Words are insufficient to describe my shame over the lack of character displayed by those Senators who continue to support such a critically flawed human as Donald Trump. Such a complete absence of moral leadership deserves nothing but contempt and revulsion.
Those in Congress who refuse to speak up should not be allowed any position of political leadership. They are cowards at best, and treasonous at worst.
