The Irony of American Democracy…

The Irony of American Democracy…

It is a small wonder that some countries around the world block and fight for their countries not to become “victims” of Democracy as is now happening here in America…the country that pushes it…but does not fully practice it.

How can a country go out into the world and promote a system it does not totally believe in…or exclusively support? 

The only two things America believes in and supports without question is “Dollars” and “Racism.”

It is most unfortunate that Dollars and Racism outweigh the efforts of those who believe in the equality dream and doctrines that would support a free and unified country.  American hypocrisy has laid waste to many developing nations and other countries who believed in and desire a governing system that would allow their citizens to thrive while living in freedom… A dream contrived and distorted by those in our own government fixated on a time in American history when imports of free men and women from African countries were enslaved and forced to build and cultivate a nation of “White Luxury” and self-appointed “White Supremacy.” Atrocities that still haunt and exist in today’s America…

These are the factions that are driving the Republican Party…along with some silent…and a few verbal Democrats, such as Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, to revive “Ole Dixieland.”

These two Democrats can exercise supporting the greater good of the citizens of this country over their going against their party to support a tool the Republicans depend on to stall and avoid bipartisan politics between the two parties; the Filibuster.  It’s time for a change…American politics need an overhaul and dismissal of all that is archaic and oppressive.

Also, remember that Arizona is one of the states adopting laws that support voter suppression…something Senator Sinema supports by her stance alone.

Spurred on by the persuasive lies and rhetoric continually spewed forth by Trump, the GOP (and some Democrats, in their stanch silence) have managed to undermine and change the principal constituent of Democracy: The Right to Vote.

These destroyers of Democracy have managed to change election rules and limit voting rights in 17, soon to be 18 states, in an effort to diminish Democrat turnout and ensure wins of Republican candidates.  The main objective of this partisan, Republican movement is to disenfranchise voters of color, who vote as Democrats.  The off-handed disguise these derelict politicians are using to defend their actions is they’re “cracking down on voter fraud.” Another massive lie conceived by and pushed by Trump and his followers.

The very few cases of “voter fraud” uncovered were committed by Republican voters trying to vote more than once for Trump in the 2020 Election.

There was an Iowa woman who voted twice for Trump and has pleaded guilty to election misconduct…a felony charge.

She turned in two absentee ballots before the November election last year.  Believing Trump’s unsubstantiated claims about the election being “rigged.”

She was arrested while attempting to vote the second ballot.

Her recommended sentence by attorneys are two years of probation and community service…Care to guess what sentence a person of color would pull down for such a felony offense? American “equality” doesn’t apply to people of color as we have witnessed time and time again…

14 Republican majority states have adopted and enacted laws that give partisan GOP officials more control over election oversight…extremely dangerous in controlling the outcome of elections that oppose Republican candidates because they can use any reason to overturn the election results in favor of their candidates! Democracy in action, according to them.  What we are really seeing and witnessing is Authoritarianism… Dictatorship… Fascism. 

Welcome to the “American Dream.”

In the state of Georgia, a Republican commission now has the power to remove local election officials and they are removing Democrats of color from local boards.  The Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, is a corrupt Republican… who did indeed stack his election by being the Attorney General at the time…and overseer of the votes…that delivered him the position.

In Arkansas, they have taken control from county authorities.

Republicans have introduced about 216 bills in 41 states to give legislatures more power over election officials… 24 of those 216 introduced bills have been enacted into law across 14 states where Republican politicians are in rule.

President Biden gave a speech today in Philadelphia, he shouted to Republicans, “Have you no shame?”

Shame is for those who have a conscience…Republicans have neither conscience or souls…Their allegiance is not to America…but to themselves and their agenda to destroy it…and create another oppressive, divided, unequal, authoritarian nation…where they are in control of life…liberty…and the pursuit of happiness…and dreams are no longer an ideal or hope for real Americans. 

There is a limit to trying to achieve bipartisan politics with “zombies.” Clearly visible to everyone witnessing Republican “politics” that they are dead…soulless zombies…the way to deal with them is to “cut off the heads of the snakes.”

Beginning with reformation or elimination of the filibuster…eliminating the Electoral College…passing executive laws to override Republican state enforced voter suppression laws…and cutting off support to Republicans who endorse and continue to spread Trump’s lies of division and eventual “Armageddon” to Democracy…if those who can put a stop to this “unholy war” on America do not take heed and stop these unholy Republican insurrectionists and anarchists, in the Senate, the House, and in states embracing Racism and America’s sins of White Supremacy, and their inhumanity to those they considered “inferior” to European immigrants who settled here…to escape “oppression.”

The Irony of America…and Democracy…

Will result in the Death of Her…

And Liberty…

And Justice…

For All…

Including the dissident GOP…

Oh…

The irony…..

Reignite The Dream…

untitled (17)

Can we reignite the dream? Today was a celebration of the man who had a dream…Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was assassinated in his quest to realize a dream of equality for Americans of African descent by peacefully removing the manacles and chains of segregation and discrimination.

How many decades backward have we traveled with the present pachyderm infestation immobilizing our country?

We must Reignite The Dream…

Today, Martin Luther King, Jr. must become more than just a celebration and memorial dedicated to a third Monday in January… it must become a day of continued movement in the realization of his dream, and a new freedom march in reclaiming and rebuilding a country with a stronger foundation built on, and living the words of “Liberty and Justice for all.”

We must Reignite The Dream…

Martin Luther King Jr. stood for Equality…and he was a man of integrity…

Kellyanne Conway… Martin Luther King, Jr. would have stood up for Trump’s Impeachment… You didn’t know him at all…Read his “I Have A Dream” speech…the time for enlightenment is ever-present…

We will Reignite The Dream….

To those who have ears to hear and eyes to see…March On, Reignite The Dream!!!

Does America Deserve Trump?

When evil doings are allowed to prevail over truth, assisted with the full cooperation of our governmental systems, not only has our systems failed, along with them exit sovereign integrity everywhere.

The exchanges made to uphold tangible objects over morality have damned humanity forever…

America was envisioned as a place free from persecution, oppression, prejudices of any kind, discrimination, religious restriction, and proclaimed a land of second chances for those who went askew of the laws in their native lands, and a land of opportunity with the fulfillment of dreams to all who sought a new life upon entering her shores…

Equality. Liberty. Freedom…at last. Not so…not so!

Lest we call near extermination and Reservation encampment of our Native American brothers and sisters, equality, liberty, and freedom…still denying their rights to their land by authorizing the encroaching  pipelines, without a thought to their survival, health or welfare…

Equality…liberty…freedom…is that what we call the enslavement, gratuitous lynching, legalized genocide, continued denial of Civil and Human Rights to our Black American brothers and sisters, and their enslaved African Ancestors, brought here from their country, in chains?! We did not learn from the Holocaust of Nazi Germany?! Another has risen and been in continuous operation…because of “difference of appearance” among the status quo…

How do we account for the mistrust of Japanese Americans, who came to and settled in America to have their dreams of equality, liberty and freedom realized? Their loyalties were recognized by placing over 100,000 in internment camps…stripped of their dignity and the lives they built for themselves, here…due to Japan’s actions in WWII…The operative word completely overlooked…”Americans.” Japanese by heritage…yet, Americans!

Executive order 9066, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, changed lives forever… Sixty-two percent of the internees were American citizens.

In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Civil Liberties Act, which apologized for the internment and authorized a $20,000 payment to every surviving internee… it was admitted that the government actions were based on “race prejudice, war hysteria and a failure of political leadership.”

This travesty began February 19, 1942…lasting until March 20, 1946…

February is Black History Month…

Emmett Till…Trayvon Martin…Michael Brown Jr. …Tamir Rice…Sandra Bland… and the endless stream of men, women and children  who have become a part of Black History… because race prejudice is still alive and ongoing in the “land of the free.”

Does America deserve Trump?

“Number 45” has demonstrated an all too familiar pattern with his Republican constituents and cabinet picks who embody the tradition of “race prejudice, war hysteria and failure of political leadership.”   Let’s also add “devoid of any political leadership or political leadership skills.”

It is one thing to change the political face of a governing party…what we are witnessing are the deep seeded roots of dysfunctionalism and destruction born out of hatred, insecurities, greed and a quest for power so intense, that the “Republican Regime” is willing to sink a nation and further induce chaos in a world that is on the brink of exploding…

We must rise above the pettiness…we must look at our past…we must remember…we must not be complicit and turn a blind eye to the “elephants” trampling our liberties and our freedom…we must defend our brothers and sisters under siege…Look in the mirror…they are us, and we are them…they are our family…they are our children…they are human beings…we are humanity first, and Americans, second.

Without our humanity…there are no Americans…without humanity, there are no Canadians…British…French…Italians…Danish…Egyptians….Irish…Africans…All continents would perish…

Somewhere…somehow, we have managed to have enough love to keep us here…somewhere…somehow…we must find enough love to save what makes us beautiful and worth saving to those who have already given their lives before us…who have left their dreams behind for us to maintain…and protect to longevity.

The greatness of America is in the diversity of her people… the richness of America is reflected in the collective contributions of her immigrant population and Native American infusion.

Does America deserve Trump and the Republican Regime?

Let us not sink into darkness by allowing the worst of us to convince us that we must take the road back to antiquity….

RESIST.
