Well good… now that THAT’S over with. I guess we can all move on.
Now that everything’s settled.
Now that everyone’s reached some kind of definitive conclusion.
Some may see things differently than others. Some may disagree completely on what is FACT and what is not. Unfortunately, no matter how you see things, I think we can all agree that there’s no good news to report from our recent PAST. But, things are looking good for our future… that’s if we are willing to learn from our mistakes.
Because it’s on full display! Right NOW, upon the World Stage… HYPOCRISY! In the United States Senate. Evidence, if presented in any other Federal Courtroom would lead to conviction… dismissed and IGNORED by our Elected Officials.
It must be nice to have a Senator in your pocket.
… but that sort of thing doesn’t happen in my daily life.
If I break the law, or one of my friends or a family member were to act in such a way… there’s no special consideration given to that situation. There is no Gang of Eight who will attempt to sway opinion by withholding evidence or testimony in that case… the Wheels of Justice simply turn.
… and oh, isn’t it sad. Isn’t it a shame. Another life wasted, fallen to a life of crime. Another criminal behind BARS, another perp off the street…
Who ARE these people?! Ye, GODS amongst Men? How is this even close to being Representative of our NATION, of our DAILY LIVES?
This is the Vision of Governance they wish to see.
This is Justice, in the eyes of our Elected Officials.
Who’s interests do they REPRESENT.
This is the road they have paved. Through their actions, by their VOTE. They have affirmed this action. This is not a conclusion to anything… it’s now complete. The Leader of the Republican Party for the foreseeable future will be Donald J. Trump. Everyone needs to understand and prepare for that.
Be it two years, be it four years. Even if it is eight years from now, eventually this question will be raised again. This is not the time to be SILENT. The defense of Democracy means we must act. If we do nothing, THIS is what it will continue to BE!
Fix the gerrymandering, secure the right to vote for ALL Americans, secure our elections from foreign interference, yes to all of it! But at the heart of it all, we’re still securing and defending the same old broken electoral system, that allows us the privilege of choosing between the candidates the DONORS have deemed acceptable.
Government by the dollar. Justice to the highest bidder.
… we all know what the problem is.
