Are We Prepared for Who We’ll Be When Trump/Pence is done? Tremr.com Staff Pick and OpEdNews.com Headline
If we weren’t fixated on the lowest, now highly elevated – indeed lauded, unscrupulous wannabe lords and ladies, skilled primarily in the art of deception – so morally bankrupt, they swamp the Exceptionalism that could be America – we’d disavow all anti-freedom caucuses camouflaging Liberty, from sea to shining sea.
Who among us are preparing for what will be after Trump/Pence era is over? Will we, like 116th House bleach out McConnell/Ryan’s 115th contempt of Constitution? Or will we have been normalized into an apathetic nemesis to human decency?
In this corner, Mark Meadows, champion of trumped GOP trying to avoid insurance query knockout by challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – when in truth, like us, both are co-joined pillars bookending American updates and We the People potential.
The real, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave question is, was Cohen’s Congressional confession a much-needed exceptional myth buster or our new, this is us?
Rarely, however, have even foxy hands of conservative cons, divorced from subtlety and originality, so shamed Lincoln’s GOP and damned any, light upon a hill pretense. Truth is, Liberal conscience and Conservative shame have too often colluded with the moneyed dens of iniquity and bigotry.
So, are we the foreshadowing of wild boar herded by moneyed masters preaching to a choir for which testosterone for a mythical past, transforms both audience and performers into worshipers, salivating at a gold-plated calf of Republic destruction? Have American Good Samaritan tendencies already been usurped by the excrement of supremacist lust for power?
Blinded by understandable patriotic fervor following their 1941 9/11, our Greatest Generation can’t be blamed for being the nuts and bolts of a profit-making war machine. However, were Korean police action and presidential Vietnam/Iraq lies so dazzling we’re still too dazed to differentiate between Socialism and Communism, or recognize, what we elected: state sponsored child abuse, religious VP hypocrisy and military rape – to see, it’s not just Trump Bull***t?
If loss of blood, limbs, mental health and life to war mongrels’ dollar sign eyes hasn’t yet convinced us of how easily one powerful older man – whether an industrial Robber Baron in search of glory, a Kaiser ensconcing empire, a trumped presidency warped by treason and towering greed, or Wall Street bankers for whom enough is never enough – employing repetitious lies: the ultimate weapon of mass hysteria, discrimination and destruction – inspiring chanting clones to clamor to touch the underbelly of, where is the bottom, herded in a rage by a tyrant’s identification of the most conveniently salable enemy of the people – then we’re no more perceptive than, The Day After characters oblivious to background TV warnings of a nuclear attack.
True patriotism is the ultimate expression of, love thy neighbor as thyself – not the droppings of false-prophets deceiving the rowdy, by proclaiming, in vociferous disrespect of, Ol’ Glory, that, they alone have accomplished amazing things, better and greater than anyone ever before.
2019-2020: it is essential that together we create our post Trump/Pence, because we’re all going to need more than a bit of marvelous to survive and thrive after wading through such a wasteland of self-deception.
So, let’s fix our Constitution, currently neither ratifying, the Equal Rights Amendment nor recognizes women as, a protected class. And before believing the white knit on a red cap, consider this: only in 2019, have some states managed to outlaw the practice of executing the mentally ill! And, its estimated that 9% of prisoners on death rows in U.S. prisons are innocent.
Pity we needed a Reich encore to, by example, reteach us: no matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as truth.
The second coming of Buzz Windrip is a forked tongue Don in search of OPM – spinning a tale that confirms, when fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.
If we cannot perceive Trump family and organization as, 1930s throwbacks, then at least consider: aided and abetted by Russian hacks, the same mindset that annihilated millions seventy-six years ago, has successfully invaded our electoral process and minority neighborhoods – so it’s suicidal to imagine recycling, we didn’t know.
Following our assassinating sixties, it has, arguably, been the nature of Conservatives to deny, and for Liberals to nurture – and now, the attorney turned felon has, under oath, testified, “If Trump loses 2020 Election, there will Never be a Peaceful Transition of Power.”.

Perhaps Saturday Night Live returns just in time to remind us, you really can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time – and just like that, 2016 elections aren’t funny anymore.
Soulmate, my aging cat, born on the streets, with a bad liver, a bad leg and now kidney issues, reminds me, like a Sons of Bill lyric, for some of the people some of the time, existence has been, dragging your life across the sands of time – from Food Desert to College Loan Debt — whether individual or nation, from dinner wine to morning after joe, The Twilight looks a whole lot like the Dawn.
It’s not how little Trump, Stumpf, Romney and Koch brothers pay in taxes. It’s the lawmakers we elected allowing this systemic imbalance to increase and multiply in all areas of American life.
Let’s reassert, we hold these truths to be self-evident, and reconnect to an all-inclusive oasis, where no matter how many, he speaks his mind, excuses, or clueless about Aleppo and foreign leaders or even sincerity regarding democracy – most still gravitate to the center of reason.
Casting our precious privilege in a way that enables the election of a dangerous thin-skinned angry old snake oil salesman, neither preserves, protects nor defends democracy or the American Democratic Republic. Such a hard right turn, turns us back to a Supreme Court failing to embrace, counting all American votes as the constitutional way forward.
In the wake of Bush v. Gore, America has been Shock and Awed into
- Preemptive strikes against a country that had nothing to do with 9/11
- Perpetual war creating ISIS (Al Qaeda on steroids)
- Global financial instability
- Worst national unemployment since The Great Depression
- The Great Recession
2016 gives us an opportunity to help America think again by voting to prevent fears, frustration and anger from transferring our belief in each other, to faith in GOP hypocrisy, Gary Johnson ignorance and a Machiavellian Trump.
Only rarely in America has it been acceptable, to give belligerency, misogyny and bigotry a free pass, but now that Trump is no longer a reality sideshow, but mob pleasing improvisation staged as semi-scripted nominee of the ultra-Conservative Right Wing, that rarity has exposed its fangs once again.
As an ardent Sanders supporter, I understand crushed dreamers and frustrated activists, but joining the deserting non-voters or giving into hopelessness that denies America mature, rational pragmatic voting booth judgement gives neo-cons the legitimacy they crave.
As citizens, it is up to us to vote to imprint the U. S. Supreme Court and impact the U. S. Congress. Hold the feet of Democrats to the fire, insisting on, an Attorney General Bernie Sanders, an Elizabeth Warren heading SEC, a Supreme Court Justice Barack Obama, a Treasury Secretary Melinda Gates — all while keeping James Comey as FBI Director to keep the next President Clinton on the straight and narrow.
We and the world we live in, deserve candidates who can name, and work with, other world leaders – not a Trump nor a Libertarian Party insisting that all must lift themselves up by their bootstraps, ignoring, some have neither boots nor homes.
It is for us rather, to help protect all of the people all of the time from the bullies of the world, whether on Main or Wall Street; in Congress or uniform; Olympian doctors or a candidate’s Russian hacker hero.
Remember, We’re all going to die no matter what the plastic surgeon told you, so let us focus our collective attention, energy, money and votes on eradicating all forms of bullying: Sexual Harassment, Spousal & Child Abuse, Bigotry, sexual & gender oppression, income disparity, military & campus rape, remembering…
America is the choices we make: Choose saving us from Alzheimer’s Disease and Climate Change – or live, trying.
