Stunning, Absolutely Stunning...

Would Ben Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and finally Dwight Eisenhower be surprised to see so much success by ex-President Donald Trump in gathering a large following?  There is no question in my mind.  They would be totally shocked and disappointed and even saddened.

Just imagine, if George Washington, James Madison, John Adams and any other of those 55 men in Philadelphia in 1787 who created the U.S. Constitution, were able to observe the current political scene in the United States.  Would they be shocked at their creation (the U.S. Constitution) being disparaged by a Republican presidential candidate, who enjoys 60% of the Republican voters’ support?  Would they be shocked that the same candidate boasts of his admiration for potentates and dictators in other repressive countries but still receives 60% of the Republican voters’ support? 

 

What would ex-President Ronald Reagan think of C.P.A.C., the Republican Party's funding operation that often gives praise to dictators and even suggested that several current dictators were a better choice for Americans to follow than the properly elected President Joe Biden.  Don’t forget, Ronald Reagan called Russia an evil empire and demanded they tear down the wall dividing East and West Berlin.  Now the Republican Party on January 6, 2021, voted (over 30%), "no" on the certification of Joe Biden for President.  Did they have facts and evidence to support their position?  NONE!  Please remember, eight senators also voted no and two of them were graduates of Harvard Law School.

 

After 240 years has the American political scene lost its moral force and direction?  Well, Plato over 2000 years ago said democracies pass into despotism.  Is ex-President Donald Trump a self-appointed potentate with ambitions to be an American dictator?  Just ask him, he probably would not deny it.  Vladimir Putin, Xi of China, and Viktor Orban of Hungary together make ex-President Trump envious of their power.  Is all of this a violation of his Presidential oath and pledge of allegiance to our flag and our laws?  Again, 60% of his followers believe the Big Lie that the Biden Presidency is fraudulent, without any facts or evidence to support their position.  Does Donald Trump have some mysterious hidden surprise that will show some sort of fraud?  No, it’s all B.S. and he does it knowing that his cult followers will believe him no matter what he says or does.

 

Ex-President Donald Trump has never known the history of our U.S. Constitution and those political struggles our Founding Fathers went through to create it.  He has no fear of a just God, the judgment of history, or the damage to his family name.  He is driven by the need to imitate the power of Vladimir Putin and other potentates.  He knows that every day he risks imprisonment over his 91 pending felony charges. He is motivated to win the Presidential election of 2024 by any means necessary.  Just look what he did over the Big Lie and the January 6, 2021 election validation process where Vice-President Pence presided.  It seems that Donald Trump was willing to actually sacrifice the life of his Vice-President, according to some sources.  Self-appointed potentates do not have to have reason or the laws on their side.  Everything is a power move, and if it takes lies, dis-information, conspiracy theories and a train load of B.S., so what!  Anything for the victory!  It worked for Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Putin, just check your history.

America, America, God shed His grace on thee, and crowned thy good with brotherhood…

 

Is our country about ready to abandon law and order and replace it with a political mess, empty of honor and distinction?  We all must look around and observe the chaos and fight back to regain civility in our government.

 

Let us not allow ignorance to prevail.  It is always the children that will suffer if we do not stand up and stop the provocation.  We must call upon past history where patriotism to the flag and our country save the day.  That day is now upon us and let every concerned citizen step up and lend energy to return good government.  Those who follow us will look back with gratitude, I guarantee it!

 

Let’s all courageously gather to do our duty to save our children and those children to follow from chaos.
