Did Our Backstory Foreshadow Trump-Pence? – Headlined on OpEdNews.com

Posted on

Backstory:

Arguably, more female and younger voters vote Left of Center, and to varying degrees, desire to center America on the central ideals of the Gettysburg Address, Voting Rights Act before gutted by Supreme Court and, on our most emancipated days, the Equal Rights Amendment.  However, we need stop squabbling like jealous siblings, failing to comprehend the wisdom of Solomon — before we cut the baby in half.

Notwithstanding Abraham Lincoln, a Whig until Whig Party evaporated, when he adopted the newest rising political label, Republican — but in all due respect, if Teddy Roosevelt couldn’t do it, Third-Party candidates are not likely to become president, until We the Grassroots stop fighting over the soil, and replace our two-party system with a more pragmatic democratic alternative – capable of sustaining itself without our over-consumerism and financial corruption of Too Big to Jail Wall Street.

Our penchant for labelling everything from hurricanes & wars to denigrating pigmentation, lifestyle choices and economic status – separating us from a Moral Mondays’ mindset, and delivering us into the wilderness state where those who use flag and Bible as props for what they preach about church sex and state greed, drain reason.

Of course, Democrats haven’t always been the good guys, but with 2020 vision in 2018, they are the better choice, especially if female, to progress America forward — if we manage to mute, Blue Wave, and plan/think beyond Pence, as well as Trump.

Realizing impeaching Donald Trump, rolls out the Red Mapping carpet for a President Mike Pence, the real Constitutional Crisis is:  those who don’t vote, those who possess too little curiosity to vote with sufficient clarity of outcome and, those dividing Democrats into Liberals and Progressives – a categorically pointless self-mutilating nose from face tantrum.

Perfection is America’s motivating dream, but ensemble invites solution.

We can save our culturally diverse heritage, or we can succumb to the infestation of, us against them. 

 

Foreshadowing:

Are we willing to make how we treat each other a disgusting contest to win, rock bottom?

Proving anyone’s character and patriotism ranks higher than a Nunes, Gowdy or Peter King is as easy as emulating Republicans Rod J. Rosenstein, Robert Mueller and Democrats Leslie Cockburn & Abigail Spanberger.

We can parrot media’s, Constitutional Crisis, or get involved in a system long overdue for correcting itself.  We can save our 2020 Census from Gerrymandering, by painting America’s Red, White and Blue a rainbow enhanced by brown, black and yellow.

We can crush student loan borrowers, embrace implausible deniability of $30 million dollar check and rape our environment, or we can elect, and if need be, un-elect, candidates who void agenda of Mick Mulvaney, Citizens United and Scott Pruitt – but continuing to extremely swing our political pendulum needs to cease and desist.

Not condoning Guantanamo Waterboarding, or oiling the turnstile between minority high schools and prisons for profit is a disgracefully low bar, which by comparison, might cajole some into thinking themselves morally superior, on Facebook, but to whatever degree we behave like what we abhor, we become another Kelly Sadler comrade.

We either propagate Access Hollywood’s genitalia POTUS vulgarity or auto-reject Keith Davidson’s sexual assistance, Michael Hayden’s Gina Haspel and begin anew to embody Thurgood Marshall’s Brown v. Board of Education.

We can choose Senator Grassley’s rush to misjudgment, Mitch McConnell’s young conservative republicans’ bench lineup – even as Greenberg Traurig celebrates Comey’s departure anniversary by kicking Trump sidekick to the curb, or recommit to a Statue of Liberty approved, Land of the Free.

We can sacrifice voting privileges on the altar of billionaire financed manipulative marketing to maintain perceived privilege, status, and power or be another generation making Mothers and Fathers happy they colluded with sex.

Our actions, especially how we revere days like, Mothers’ Day, define us:

  • Lovingly respecting all Mothers
  • Honoring all women, especially teachers
  • Rejuvenating hope in parents who’ve lost children to drive-bys, HS military recruitment, private prisons, addiction, food-poisoning, Flint water, gun-violence and lack of quality education

Such things have no more place in a Home of the Brave, than military deferments dishonestly acquired.

Our Founding Fathers did exceptionally well, but it’s up to us to keep it, knowing being a living example of the Golden Rule is the only light that diminishes tower darkness.

Trump’s Tattered Brand Thrives By Focusing Our Ridicule — Headlined on OpEdNews.com

Posted on Updated on

The Trump/Pence Administration is, in all probability, the worst rupture in our American Dream of being a giving culture of global Good Samaritans, since 9/11/2001, but this trampling mixture causing both political abhorrence and stimulus could have never descended upon us, without the preferences of moneyed Conservatives, Corporate induced Recession and write-ins for people who had no electable possibility.

Empowered by 2016 elections emanated from voters deciding, slapping Democratic Party wrists would bring recognition without diminishing protective agencies, SCOTUS or our voting privileges — encouraging Jeff Sessions to douse the torch of Lady Liberty, re-dip our international standing in anarchy and tip racial and gender imbalance, further in decline – all while Democrats continue to believe this is just about Donald Trump.

It’s not.  It’s Mitch McConnell & his line of succession:  confirmed judges.  It’s Paul Ryan, escaping responsibility for the GOP Freedom Caucus.

It’s a religious fanatic and sexual bigot one cholesterol heartbeat away VP, hiding in plain sight, aiding and abetting the undoing of American progress, waiting to fly in on the wings of Pompeo & Pruitt, to wipe his feet on equality and justice for women, LGBTQ, and all not made in his image.

It’s the nightmares of every low information and non-voter providing infrastructure for Millennials to blame Baby-Boomers.

It’s the NRA member driving from Indiana to Texas, with a carload of T-Shirts that contradict Chief Justice Warren Burger’s supreme interpretation of our Second Amendment – as inspired Founding Fathers’ Bill of Rights inclusion, to guarantee well-regulated gun use — not daring to incorrectly define Liberty, as the right to bear unregulated arms.

It’s voting like our lives depended on it, embracing the clarity of millions around the world, in solidarity with #2017WomensMarch, #MeToo, #TimesUp and #NeverAgain Parkland students.

It’s about caring passionately enough to be respectfully involved with all life on earth, or at least partnering with Western Industrial Societies seeking balance between, being fed up with elections that yield too little change, and becoming stronger activists advocating for income parity, gender equality, racial justice and recapturing our exceptional essence.

It’s about being a positive global example; not white-washing our crimes against humanity:  Slavery, Civil War prisons, Japanese-American internment camps, Jim Crow, Lynching, Nixon’s Kent State, and 21st century Red Mapping of the United in our American dreams for all born here before Columbus, and all immigrants invited after, who ultimately generated, The Greatest Generation.

Let’s exhale greatness that emits more than campaign slogans for Demagogue worshipers, because to reelect, The Land of the Free, we need be, in our institutions, mirrors and choices, an exceptional Home of the Brave — whose every action enables justice to triumph over repetitious ICE picks thrust into our humanity.

Greatness is what nations and cultures whisper we’ve earned, when no one is watching.

Greatness honors what Corporatism’s Conservative puppeteers dishonor – casting doctors, lawyers, scientists and football players as more deserving of financial and professional respect than the teachers who taught them.

Greatness, like Exceptionalism, is forever challenging those to whom we award our vote, to prove themselves worthy of it.

There is no greatness in denial:

  • Alzheimer’s until caregiving costs rivet our attention
  • Climate Change until Miami’s under water
  • Unsafe food until recalls quadruple
  • Addictions to Coal Ash Candidates, Opioids and bullying
  • More Flints enabling privatization of water to assuage Corporatism’s gluttony for gauging

Remembering, Nixon’s landslide re-election after Pentagon Papers and Watergate, best we focus on provable impeachable offenses — but gently, without incentivizing adoring trumpets.

Being unempathetically ambiguous about Constitutional truth is no excuse for unpresidential material projecting himself, above Constitutional law.

Being more focused on Trump’s monthly porn payment plan, blinds us to, of, by and for the people Iran Deal.

America was not created by voting to die younger, passing on college education to avoid padding banker’s pockets or, believing the greatest secret of an ego surviving on fast food, Fox News and laundered money, is a videoed urinating contest.

Reason beckons the genius of Civics, psychology of Recess and patriotism of http://www.peopledemandingaction.org, http://www.studentprivacy.org, http://www.auditelectionsusa.org/team/, NAACP, ACLU and Women-Matter.org, in peaceful assembly.

Greatness is thriving together — America First, is a house divided, on steroids.
