Be it in pursuit of an enemy in retreat… this far and no farther.
Be it in the advance of forces in defense… this far and no farther.
The Enemies of Democracy come dressed in the same attire, seen countless times before. They come bearing badges of honor… to enforce THEIR RULE, upon those deemed worthy of merely being ruled over.
The Defenders of Democracy are myriad and opalescent. Carrying with them their CHILDREN… clothed only in the scars of WAR. They stand to defend. They MARCH out of necessity. They fight to defend their home.
A task deemed worthy of no less, than the loss of their OWN LIFE.
So too, are the values of The People of The United States.
Because we know— if it can happen to ONE of us, then it can happen to us ALL. It’s only a matter of TIME. If we turn a blind eye now, toward the suffering and injustice; so too, for us… it will be the same. In our time of need, in our hour of oppression… our fate will have already been sealed, long before the first shots are fired.
As we cry out for HELP, the question will be asked… ‘What did you do to help keep their Democracy intact?’
Will it be said that the United States of America, stood on the sidelines and did nothing… or will it be remembered as a time in which we chose to ACT.
Why do they not act? When the evidence is CLEAR that their actions would SAVE LIVES… they hesitate. Instead of doing what is RIGHT they remain SILENT. For what? What’s more precious to them than saving someone’s life?
We all know what the problem is.
It’s a hard thing to swallow… it’s just a numbers game. Even if the odds are infinitesimally small. One-in-a-million, one-in-a-billion… people are dying due to the vaccine. It’s a stone cold fact. To deny it, is to deny science.
And that’s where this whole debacle went off the rails. Our elected officials chose to DENY SCIENCE and played politics with a deadly virus. I have no confidence that our elected officials are telling us the TRUTH right now… because BOTH SIDES have been manipulating facts and spinning scientific data for over TWO YEARS.
And now we can SEE just how accurate Donald Trump’s predictions were…
“If we could hold that down… so we have between 100 and 200,000 – we altogether have done a very good job.”
—Donald J. Trump
Nailed it, sir.
IF ONLY they knew in advance, if only they had some sort of PLAN…
IF the odds are one-in-a-million, in this country alone that’s 350 people… worldwide that’s 8,000 deaths. Even if we are generous and it’s more like one-in-a-billion, we’re still condemning EIGHT people to die.
That’s a hard call for anyone to make… because it could be anyone. It could be my MOTHER, or my CHILD. It could even be ME. And that decision is made with intent. With knowledge… with consent. A decision was made, knowing with certainty what the outcome would be.
Because of our knowledge and our collective effort to SAVE LIVES… we are at the LOWER end of those initial internal projections. Unequivocally, our SACRIFICE has saved over one million American Lives.
And it’s not that hard to see how it could happen. When we lose focus on our goals. When doing what’s RIGHT becomes too cumbersome… when the PRICE of expediency is more attractive than the burden of responsibility.
At best we could say, that our elected officials are just out of touch with the lives of Everyday Americans. At worst… they act knowing the results of their inaction. And hey, I’m an optimist. I’ll gladly take a half-empty glass… if that’s all that’s left. But I refuse to be BLIND.
What person acting in GOOD FAITH, would name a bill after a recovering addict out of spite… especially when that recovering addict is the SON of the sitting President of the United States?
Strip it all BARE. Lay it out there for the whole WORLD to see. That old phrase ‘You better get RIGHT with Jesus’ comes to mind… and that seems about right. They’ve now shown themselves to be the hucksters and carpetbaggers that they truly ARE.
They have NO FAITH in the Will of the MAJORITY… so they’ll just take whatever they CAN for themselves. While the rest of us desperately rally behind their PARTY… their RACKET… their COVER… praying that maybe someday, SANITY might rule the day in the United States Senate.
But we all know what the problem is… and an ADDICT will not change their ways until they admit they have a problem.
Our elected officials, making FUN of addicts… laughing at the plight of their VOTERS. Their CONSTITUENTS. All while they fail to remember… damn near every single one of those addicts owes their addiction to the LAX OVERSIGHT allowed by the very legislative body in which they serve.
They fail to tell you… all of this could have been avoided in the first place.
Can they not remember? Did they simply forget? The mind does start to fade after a certain age… maybe we should just give them the benefit of the DOUBT.
Or maybe we all know what the problem is.
Senator Manchin and his family’s got it all figured out… why can’t YOURS?
Is there nothing left that we hold SACRED? Is there nothing that can bridge the gap… no place where we can find COMMON GROUND?
If I may be so BOLD to suggest… there is NO political division in this country. There is no existential threat. There is still ONE overarching ideology that encompasses every political party, that every one of us can agree upon.
Our Legislators legislate based on MONEY and the pursuit thereof.
To FUND their Political Organizations.
To FUND their Political Parties.
To FUND their re-election campaigns…
All at the expense of THE PEOPLE they were elected to represent.
Any system that would allow the influence of MONEY to decide who is worthy of legislating for the rest of us, will inevitably favor those WITH money over those WITHOUT.
Be it the Second Amendment, a woman’s right to CHOOSE, or the teaching of this Nation’s long and prosperous HISTORY… we all know what the problem is.
