If you think that I’m exaggerating about the end of America, let’s look at the facts. Let’s begin with the reasons and principles why our founding fathers created the United States of America.
First, and foremost, our nation was founded on religious freedom, and was the basis for every other precept. When King George III ruled that all of England’s citizens must be members of the ‘Church of England,’ Washington, Jefferson, John Adams, Franklin, and all of the others left for the ‘New World.’ Although today’s Republicans in name only violate the Constitution on a daily basis by supporting the Christian religious right, and attacking the religion of Islam, freedom to practice the religion of your choice, or none at all, remains the core of America’s soul.
Individual freedoms and rights, guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, followed. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to vote, the right to privacy, and every other guarantee are all extensions of the right to practice the faith of your choice or not to practice a religion at all.
Trump seeks the destruction of the Constitution, and with complete subservience from the Republican controlled congress, and now the Supreme Court, democracy and the Constitution are no longer relevant to our nation’s government. Fascism is now in control of America, and plutocracy is in full force.
Secondly, the greatest traitors to the United States are Trump, and his willful slaves, Mitch McConnell, and Paul Ryan.
McConnell refused to allow the Senate to conduct hearings for one of the most qualified nominees for the Supreme Court in the last 50 years; Merrick Garland. Now we are burdened with Neil Gorsuch who is another Antonin Scalia; the most politicized Justice in history. Today the ‘turtle’ announced that he will be pushing through all of Trump’s judicial nominees as quickly as possible. This is expected from a man who promised in 2009 that his party would do nothing as long as a black man was in the White House. Trump, McConnell, Steve King, Louie Gohmert, John Cornyn, and others in the GOP prove that their party is fully supportive of Trump and his belief in white supremacy.
Republicans don’t give a damn about our nation. They are concerned with winning elections, remaining in power, and serving the wishes of special interests. McConnell is the greatest failure in the history of the Senate, and a poster boy for term limits.
The three branches of government are bought and paid for by Donald Trump. They have sold their souls and the future of our nation to the worst man in the world and the worst illegitimate president in history.
Please tell others about my blog; only the truth can save the dream. Thank you.
