George W. Bush and Dick Cheney drove America to Barak H. Obama. Barak H. Obama and Hillary Clinton drove America to Donald J. Trump. Donald J. Trump drove America to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are driving America to … well, that remains to be seen.
George W. Bush featured toppling governments and financial collapse. Barak H. Obama featured toppling governments and unreasonable searches and seizures. Donald J. Trump featured conflict with the deep state and fake news. Joe Biden features conflict with unity and equality.
Americans used to discuss what’s important to them — jobs, inflation, safe streets, one person one vote, the American Dream. Now Americans don’t discuss anything — afraid of being called racist and everything else that silences civil debate.
The United States of America used to be the North, the South, Middle America, and the West. Now it’s Red States and Blue States — States for Elites and States for Deplorables.
America’s Founding Fathers overthrew their government by force of arms and created a nation grounded in limited government. Now America’s Founding Fathers have been declared persona non grata, and limited government has been declared the province of people who “cling to guns or religion”.
America’s social compact has been shredded, just as the Speaker of the House of Representatives shredded the President’s State of the Union Address behind his back as he presented it to the world.
The legitimacy of the Supreme Court has been thrown aside. One Supreme Court Justice expressed her disdain for the Supreme Court as follows: “this Court is partly to blame for the breakdown in the appellate process”. The Speaker of the House of Representatives expressed her disdain for the Supreme Court by declaring one Justice to be “illegitimate” and another Justice to be unworthy of confirmation by the Senate.
The intelligence community has become a terror. A senior Senator expressed his fear as follows: “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you”.
Politicians daily express hatred and disdain for politicians. And because politicians know politicians best, Americans would be foolish not to join in the hatred and disdain.
Who chooses the people who rule America? The people who teach America’s children to judge people by the color of their skin. The people who un-ravel America’s society. For sure, it certainly is not We the People.
