Americans, self-indulgent, obtuse to their surroundings and not educated in civics sit by quietly allowing the America that was once a “Shining City On A Hill” to begin to fall somewhere into yesterday’s history. If Americans silently as a majority do not demand better from their political leaders, then America will surely die.
Bigotry, in the form of an immigration policy based on nationality and religion, is not the America or Lady Liberty that has stood beautifully in the New York Harbor. There is no history encompassing enough terrorism in America that can be pinpointed to immigrants to ever suggest that any nationality nor any religion is not worthy of coming into New York Harbor and being accepted, given reprise, and safety from all enemies of them. Donald Trump and his White Supremacist supporters have been engaged in pure hatred, bigotry, and racism.
America had seen a day when the Irish were stopped at the harbors, the Spanish, The French, and then there were the Catholics, Jewish and as we sit back looking at the bigotry that Donald wants to continue, it will be the downfall of America, and it will never “make America great.” Americans who do not support Trump are called globalist. That is not a negative connotation.
It was the globalist who saw outside their borders and fought to win WWI and WWII. It was Ronald Reagan seeing a global world when he demanded Gorbachev “Tear Down This Wall.” It is the globalist today that are CIA and other intelligence agencies that do clandestine duties like Evan McMullin did to save Americans not only in the Middle East but around the globe. Global means you are no longer self-indulgent, non-sacrificing, and greedy. Those three qualities America has left for the current President to demonstrate on a daily basis.
Martin Luther King Jr. spoke the words “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Today with sadness in their eyes, the forefathers of America see an America that is silent about crime by politicians, excuses for hatred portrayed by political leaders, and America’s enemies creating the outcome of Presidential elections.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy asked America “Do not ask what America can do for you, but what you can do for America,” and Americans see selfish, unfettered criminals abusing America for their own wealth and power. America sees politicians lying, going against their constituent’s desires, and believe that nothing can ever touch them.
America saw the falling apart of a most desperate man, Donald Trump as he fires the FBI Director, believing this will stop all investigations into his background with Russia. Americans see evidence of nearly $200,000,000 given to Donald Trump business ventures by Russia, while he stands in front of podiums and states he has never had any dealing with Russia. We see Donald’s cabinet members, and close associates going in front of Congress and being investigated for ties to Russia, and everything ties back to two people. Donald Trump and Russia’s Putin.
Today is not a Democrat Day, nor is it a Republican Day. This is not a day for Conservatives or Progressives to celebrate. Today is a day of sadness for America, for the elected leader is a criminal, a liar, and must be impeached!! All Americans, not with a duty to party, nor to any specific candidate at any level, but as an American, a true Patriot, a person who follows the Constitution, need to protest without destruction or violence, but to protest, whether in a town of 2500 or a city of 2.5 million. Every true American must sound their voice, call for the politicians to do their job, do it quickly and without hesitation. You have protested for less, well this protest is to save America. While many Americans slept last night the investigation teams were swift and far-reaching in the news media to confirm the Sealed Indictment granted against Donald Trump. Today all Americans cannot be silent if they want America to continue.
