Everything in its Right Place

I lean to the LEFT on just about all of my positions… but because I lean so far left, I sometimes come out on the far side of the RIGHT. When our political divisions are charted out, there seems to be a segment of the far right that finds common ground in the messaging of Bernie Sanders; and there’s a segment of the far left that supports a “Law and Order” message, like that of Donald Trump.

Instead of a line graph, where the x and y coordinates neatly sort out our political differences… we find overlap. We are not as divided as they make us out to be.

When I analyze my positions, I can see common ground with those who would carry the Gadsden Flag. Liberty proves Justice… while Justice merely wishes it were Liberty.

These are observations, drawn from what’s PUBLICLY AVAILABLE. I make my conclusions based upon what I know to be TRUE and then evaluate what will come NEXT… and I do this in the SUNLIGHT.

Available for everyone to see. Be they citizens of this Nation or citizens of another. Be they elected officials of this land or somewhere else… be they FRIEND or FOE.

If I’ve drawn these conclusions… what conclusions have they made? What’s their evaluation of the current state of Our Union.

Joe Manchin is a SMART GUY; he knows there is no I in TEAM. But I’d say, it’s clear to all of us… he can definitely see the word ME in it.

This isn’t about supporting or ending the filibuster. This isn’t about a Senator taking a principled stand against the leadership of his own party.

This is about MONEY.

Joe Manchin is doing what his DONORS want him to do… and they support the ENTIRE PARTY. And LO and BEHOLD! Wouldn’t you know it… that happens to be the position of the OTHER PARTY, too.

I wonder who foots their bills?

Now, to be clear, I don’t believe this B.S. for one second… until I stop and think about it. What if that were me? What would I do if I had to be productive in such a toxic work environment, constantly looked down upon as inadequate or somehow lacking…

I would resign. I would want what’s best for my PARTY, my PRESIDENT, and my COUNTRY. Joe Manchin should consider doing the SAME concerning his status as a Democrat, and the leadership of the Democratic National Committee should demand it from him.

But I’m sure that won’t happen, just as it is within the REPUBLICAN PARTY.

Ted Cruz said he wouldn’t be a servile puppy for Donald Trump. Mitch McConnell believes Donald Trump should be held criminally responsible for his role in the events of January 6th. Lindsay Graham said he was done with Donald Trump… yet they ALL fall in line.

What does this say about the LEADERSHIP of the TWO PARTIES? One side is UNITED in their aggressive agenda of total INACTION, while the OTHER is unable to unite behind the agenda of the LEADER of their Party- THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Joe Manchin can find ANOTHER JOB. Joe Manchin can hop on his BOAT and sail off to CANADA while our Democracy dies… and he’ll have plenty of cash-on-hand to do all that, thanks to his DONORS.

HE can’t explain it to the folks back home. HE has done everything HE can do. HE can’t see himself voting for it. HE has a problem…

Over 80 million Americans voted for this agenda in 2020. 

 

Q: If this is HIS opinion, why does the Democratic Party remain SILENT? Why is he allowed to do this with no consequences from Party Leadership?

A: Because they can’t continue to “do the right thing” if they can’t get RE-ELECTED… and they need more MONEY in order to do that.

 

Their SILENCE, bought and paid for by organizations and individuals who stand to lose money if these bills pass… BILLIONS of dollars! They save BILLIONS every year by investing just TENS of MILLIONS of dollars in EVERY political campaign. Thereby assuring their influence in the legislative process… no matter who is elected.

And now, as the storm clouds darken our skies. My Fellow Americans, I ask you… what are their intentions? What should be OURS.

We may not be able to change the DESTINATION… we may have no control over what SHAPE it will create; but we have the ability to CHOOSE what part we will play, what position we will ultimately take. Though we have not yet made that decision… and in some cases the choices haven’t even been presented… one day, that choice must be made.

It may be heavy. It may be unpleasant and even downright disturbing… but we will not be the FIRST, and we will certainly not be the LAST.

And it doesn’t even need to be that difficult, it’s being made out to be harder than it actually is. It will only require that every one of us participates… more HANDS will lighten the LOAD.

We’ve now seen with our own eyes what the problem is and where the problem lies. If we take this moment and UNITE in common cause, we can begin a Restoration of Our Democracy. To remove what is clearly rotten and make things as they should be. To ensure INTEGRITY is found behind those walls… no matter who is chosen by THE PEOPLE to reside there.

Within a defined physical framework, with an impartial, finite application of the rules… the outcome of the experiment should be the SAME. Predictable. A FACT. Demonstrated consistently, time and again.

That is, unless there is an OUTSIDE INFLUENCE on the system. A tilt. A jolt. A finger on the scale, and the result appears skewed as nothing falls into place.

Because of the reliability of the experiment itself, we can SEE what has occurred. A shift to the LEFT or a shift to the RIGHT and we can see exactly what the problem is… and we know exactly how to SOLVE IT.

It’s written at the TOP of this page. 

The chaos. The division. The inaction. All of it disappears when we FOCUS on the problem. We just need to STOP, catch our breath, and start it again at the upper left-hand corner… as my high school band director would say.

All together now… as ONE
