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.
As Mueller’s investigation draws ever closer to the #BLOTUS, these powerful words from our Declaration of Independence ring more true than ever before. The majority of the thinking world understands that the man is unfit for any role in civil society, much less being the ruler of the United States.
The sooner #BLOTUS is legally removed from office, the sooner we can begin rebuilding our nation’s reputation again. I know what I would like for Christmas, and since I am not picky, I have two options. Impeachment proceedings is my first choice. My second is a letter of resignation.
The criminal trial and conviction for treason would just be a big bonus, as well as a salute to justice.
Every society has its own acceptable norms. What #BLOTUS is doing to the norms of this country is frightening, Personally, I think he is the leading factor in changing what is considered acceptable behavior in our society.
His behavior and his actions are not reflective of who we are as a nation. He isn’t a leader we want our children to emulate. We cannot allow him to normalize behavior that should never be accepted in a free and democratic society.
“The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the nation as a whole. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly as necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”
This quote by President Roosevelt was a part of the 17 minute retirement speech delivered to his colleagues yesterday by Republican Senator, Jeff Flake of Arizona. He basically said he was retiring because of the coarseness of the leadership of our nation, and that he could no longer be complicit in the undermining of the core values that has made our country great.
I salute the Senator for his courage and applaud his public denouncement of the crude, boorish, and destructive methodology of #BLOTUS. More of our national leaders need to have the strength of character to be openly critical of the current President and his outrageous, infantile, and morally indefensible behavior. Silence in the face of the actions of this president is not only unpatriotic, but in the words of Roosevelt, “morally treasonable to the American public.”
Rational, thinking people around the globe have no difficulty seeing the #BLOTUS for what and who he really is. And because they see the truth, they can also understand how he is destroying our nation.
My question is simple. If people around the world can recognize an egotistical, lying, racist, why can’t his Republican supporters recognize it as well?
I’m afraid the answer is just as simple. Supporters of the #BLOTUS obviously agree with him.
They do not care about his collusion with Russia to pay off his massive debts. To them, #BLOTUS is more important than the future of our country.
That’s not patriotic. That’s stupid…if not treasonous
Haven’t we seen enough to realize that we have been attacked by the Russians? This is not a partisan issue. Our electoral process was severely compromised, and it was accomplished by Russia with the help of the #BLOTUS and his inner circle. It truly appears to be far more than just collusion.
When a foreign power attacks the United States, that has always been known as an act of war. When a citizen or citizens of the United States provide aid to an enemy of the United States, that has always been known as treason.
The United States has strict laws against treason. Isn’t it time that ALL MEMBERS of the United States House and Senate do there job and bring appropriate charges against all those involved?
And, if our elected officials refuse to act, for whatever reason, partisan or other, every one of them needs to be held accountable at the polls, if not face charges of aiding and abetting treasonous activities themselves.
Am I the only one that feels this strongly? I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject.
I doubt that Cicero was warning our nation about the #BLOTUS. But, I have to admit that this statesman knew what he was talking about, and it’s just as obvious that his words should be heeded by the wise of any age.
There is no doubt in my mind that Trump appeals to”the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.” And one has only to look at his first few months in office to realize he works best in secret and at night.
The stench arising from the oval office continues to grow as the #BLOTUS rots the soul of our nation. Truly, “a murderer is less to be feared.”
