Our new colorful 116th House, with its female twist of fate, reflects the wisdom of voters refusing to throw America’s pearls before swine willing to flagrantly discard human decency – including to those from any of the, 3 Mexican Countries – but Americans need to get serious, because Trump, and his administration are less joke and more dangerous threat to our nation, our planet and our children.
Cure: 2020 Election and a new, New Deal, that snatches, love thy neighbor as thyself, from the jaws of this inhumanity to humankind.
Usually, live and let live has nurtured our ability to learn, adapt and indeed transform ourselves and the lives of others. However, that which has always dwelt among us, albeit in the deep darkness of fear that breeds envy and hate, has been exposed by a new kind of, dawn’s early light, that blinds many to our increasing polluted water, weather extremes and a level of insensitivity to nature’s food chain, that is suicidal.
Nonetheless, that so many are listening to a twenty-nine-year old female Freshman Congresswoman from New York, who isn’t afraid of either scientific truth or saying, Socialism, bespeaks as much about American potential as it does hers – and confirms our everlasting trust in the ingenuity and genius of every hue, politics and true vision we hold as self-evident.

American presidents who were great statesmen can be counted on one hand; good ones on two; and despite GOP canonization of Reagan, perfect ones, zip.
Nonetheless, on Election Day, presidents are what both voting, and non-voting, Americans hope for or fear most – which brings us back down to an earth going down at the hands of confidence artists dealing out so many still-born pledges, good people are being turned into clones dismantling the very thing they seemingly crave most – America’s prestige.
As for impeaching our Stonewalling-In-Chief, careful what you wish for, because the apathy of the devil we know, is better than the devil waiting in the wings believing he is the foreplay before Second Coming ecstasy.
If neither stymied nor delayed, rippling climate effects will rob quality of life from deniers, Corporatism’s defenders, Coal Ash providers, and praying grandmothers alike – because unlike Republican Senators, earth’s changing climate will indiscriminately embrace everyone, regardless of bank balances or sexual and political proclivities.
Perhaps it’s time to, passionately pursue a life of excellence, reigning in the reins that diminished life on earth, and as advisors, mentor and nurture those who now must stop stubborn gray-haired men who continually Mitch McConnell the renewal of the American spirit that has now, against all GOP obstruction, produced an energized forward-looking generation.
In future elections, let’s rekindle that famous Franklin Delano Roosevelt smile that shepherded America’s, Greatest Generation through Depression and world war, and being brave in a Land of the Free win Russian-free elections.
When we courageously grasp the torch passed to a new generation by a president who, arguably, saved humanity and earth, we become the next human chapter of Profiles in Courage – compassionately driven to save the world, for all of God’s Children.
By simply accepting responsibility for not living our Gettysburg Address, fulfilling our Statue of Liberty promise and failing to do the one thing the universe asked of us: to look after the earth as good stewards – we can elect to replace our current morally bankrupt, bullying White House cheat and his team of national security risks.
Self-preservation and the power of faith in education will yield wisdom that will touch the world, even if the greed of Wall Street lobbyists and conservative fears impede our saving the earth.
If we fail to listen to our collective reason-based conscience, now reawakened by, The Green New Deal resolution inspired by Virginia and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it will become increasingly difficult to find enough clean water to throw at, buried in the sand faces.

It’s not the devastating disastrous challenges with which the webs of conservative government wallowing in demagogic visions of billionaire boards, nor Global Climate Change denials that entangle us – it’s the art of how we deal.
Our best, what’s next, is making reparations for the meaningful we’ve stolen from others – especially during our Trump/Pence error – with affordable healthcare including preexisting conditions, electing descendants of former slaves to positions of power and saving all children and students from ICE, unbearable student loan debt and Betsy DeVos.
Next, cease following The Right in the wrong direction; desist obsessing over our mythically enhanced past; ellipse debris of our serial Gates, Trickle-Down deceit and Bushwhacked, Mistakes were Made – and walk the walk, we’ve incessantly talked.
What’s next? Patience for under-informed family and friends; turn off media conjecture turned hyped gossip; tune out Madison Ave marketing whitewashing thinking – resist billion-dollar wall pieces and Billionaire CEOs, with an out of this world plan to escape earth’s climate challenges.

As people, nation and earth’s inhabitants, our ultimate power is Free Will steeped in, Freedom of Choice – brimming with the Exceptionalism of Self-Determination.
Remembering, Nixon was reelected in a landslide even after Watergate was headlined news, let us individually self-examine, why: if, a combo of The Right conservatives indifferent to criminal politicians vs. an extremely Liberal candidate on The Left – then decline a rerun of, what is past is prologue.
If we must test, Divided We Fall, let’s plant Ol’ Glory in a watershed opposing Pence religious hypocrisy zealots, McConnell’s secretly banker rented cronies and the Impeachment cravings of an energized Left Wing perhaps too pragmatically deficient, to see the core of immorality is conservatives losing sight of it.
The lies we continue to tell ourselves about Sandy Hook, NRA comrades enabling Las Vegas, Orlando’s Pulse and Parkland murders while ignoring Trump’s ICE cold kidnapping of our morality, by imprisoning and trafficking children, demands our, what’s next, must confront our Peter Principal reality show personality’s Base, despite understanding finally, no matter the cause, reasonable people do not possess infallible powers to reason with people who choose to be unreasonably committed to unscrupulous men without reason.
What’s Next then: All-inclusive Liberalism recapturing and intellectually nurturing America’s FDR/JFK center.
Current Republican Party Conservatives, as Barbara Bush discovered but failed to internalize, are reminder and reflection that, America was never a united country speaking in one voice, nor Americans all for one and one for all – notwithstanding the brief shining moments of civilian and military leadership during our Revolution, World War II and Cuban Missile Crisis – when such courage and humanity preserved, protected and defended both America and humankind.

Now, what’s next: We the People demanding our government’s Office of Legal Counsel follow Trump’s suggestion to investigate, the other side: why Trump was exonerated by his handpicked AG and why conservatives continue denying life on earth its last chance: an American Green New Deal.
The challenge of all-inclusive government is the Democratic gauntlet at the feet of McConnell’s trumped GOP, and what’s next is not premature victory laps with vengeful intent, but like a Mueller Grand Jury, an accountability mirror reflecting America, continuing robustly.
