Land of the Free and Home of the Brave

Trump claims that 2 years of investigation by Meuller was too long, yet William Barr is starting an investigation that is all over the map with one goal in mind, support Trump no matter what and endlessly tie things up until long after he has anymore control over this country.

But the law of cause and effect – you reap what you sow – is very strict. We can’t pick and choose whether we get effects from the things we do and say. Trump will go down in history, not as a great president, but as the leader of the destructive driving forces in this day and age that bring down our country on all levels.

Our planet will have little hope of healing itself because of the ignorance of climate science espoused by the deluded science expert in the White House who thinks his gut is more intelligent than those with the education to back what they say. If you don’t want to believe our climate stability is in deep trouble you can decide to believe the words of someone who tells you what you want to hear – if you are willing to live through the consequences.

If you want to believe an homogenized all-white America is a good thing, then you must also think “the land of the free, home of the brave” is just a nice sounding slogan. People who have lived in the country, often for decades or generations, have no place in this white society of which the GOP dreams. How could anyone want this? Many good people are excluded while organizations flourish as they cheer for a white society. And this cake itself a Christian nation?

How do I know this? Because Republican citizens by and large ignore commenting on any subject that calls into question how it would reflect on them. They don’t want to be seen ss personally destroying the lives of minorities. They want to be thought of as good Americans. Their arguments are defenseless.

Abortion has always been their go-to subject. Concern primarily lies with the fertilized egg. It has rights! Fertilized eggs need attorneys! The are people. We must save every last one and even make mothers have funerals for miscarriages.

Should the mother get the death penalty? Can she prove she didn’t actively try to miscarry? Should they have death certificates and be named? OMG what pain might the fetus feel – until it is born. After that they wash their hands of it. It doesn’t matter if they are abused, fed or educated. That is the parents responsibility, even if the fertilized egg came to life because a father raped his 10 year old daughter. Not their problem! They only needed to make sure it was born. To hell with it after that. Go save the next fertilized egg.

We want to say America is a free nation. “Make America Great Again,” but only if the GOP can control what other people do and stifle their freedom while doing it. Republicans want less government regulation, unless it is something they think they have the right to control. What hypocrisy!

You can choose to not believe this is happening, but our grandchildren will have to live with it as well as the many combinations of races of people who make up our country who are trying to survive in an unwelcoming atmophere, even though many of these families have lived here for many generations. These people, who are less than snowy white are people the Republicans believe are inferior to the white European mix of nationalities. Only white people call the cops when they think someone is infringing on a space they think they shouldn’t be, even if they are in their own front yard.

My family used to be all-white. Now it has a mix of Choctaw Indian, African black, Island black and Hispanic. The GOP thinks my family is no longer worthy in taking part in the say so of this country. My family’s vote should not have the significance it used to have because genetically we are not “real” Americans any longer – according to rich white men who think they carry greater intelligence and should now make and enforce the laws. They believe they are superior.

That is the white male fear – that they will fall off their precarious, self-made pedestal and the minorities $ will rise up and say, “No more” will take over. God forbid!!! So Republicans are working feverishly to impose laws to benefit themselves, made even more evident to everyone after the midterms. They thumb their noses at their own hypocrisy.

Republican citizens will pay for this as well as everyone else for their blind ignorance believing the GOP has their best interest at heart, but they aren’t rich enough to matter. If you do not delve deeper into understanding what is happening and stop reading conservative soundbites as your news and education you can kiss goodbye any freedom you may still have. Let’s see if God can save the hateful, bigoted, self-serving “Christian” politicians who have fine tuned their own brand of Christianity used to control people they think should not have an equal say in our country. Only white men are good enough for that, as they have clearly said.

This is not about supporting a democratic nominee instead of Republican. This is about understanding what the GOP wants for America as a collective body. The abomination sitting in the White House, whose life is built on lies and immaturity and his active destruction of anyone or any agency that doesn’t bow to his authority goes against the very foundation of who we are, or who we used to be. There is very little left of what made this country great, and most of that is only in our imagination because we want to think of America as the land of the free and home of the brave – a nation of good people. That is gone. The good people are no match for the evil that presides.

Much of the world despises us because of the harm we done. Having an “America First” attitude which is really saying, “F*** Y**” has destroyed any good will we had left. Trump’s personal nature is an affront to humanity. If you can’t see that and instead try to change the subject to a Democrat you think need investigating, then you purposely choose to remain ignorant. Maybe it is the ego that won’t allow you to voice what you think of Trump – the man. Maybe you think it doesn’t matter.

To me, these people are an enemy of my country along with every other white nationalistic group that wants to control or rid the country of color, control women and minorities, as well as normalize rape and incest and fetuses that grow from that violence, destroy public education, destroy healthcare and medicine availability, allow unprecedented poisons in our air, water and food with little repercussions to corporations slowly killing us. Destroying or changing history and teaching fallacies to our children, using incarceration for profit that destroy families, keeping black people from voting against the laws that unfairly incarcerated them. The list is too long to print. But these are the things you approve of when you support the GOP.

So goodbye to you and good riddance.
