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…..

This July 4th 2021…

This July 4th, 2021…Celebrate you…

Celebrate that after 2020…and the months leading up to this day, we made it…and many didn’t due to the pandemic…indiscriminate assaults and the taking of lives…The Florida condo collapse…tornadoes…hurricanes…floods…extreme heat…droughts…joblessness…homelessness…politics….

For those events that we can do nothing about…let us bond together and give assistance and kindness and comfort….

For the events that we can do something about…Remember that our Freedom…Life…Liberties…and our Pursuit of Happiness is contingent upon our Independence…

Independence comes about because of you and your contributions to America…and the continuance of the freedoms promised to every American…

Celebrate you…Celebrate Independence…Celebrate Freedom…and don’t abandon the struggle and the war we are waging here in America…even today…to celebrate another July 4th…come 2022…

Freedom and Independence aren’t just words to be thrown around…

So be vigilant in your quest to retain them…

Happy Independence Day….

Finding Peace In A Nation Of Chaos…

The simplicity of living was taken away from us with the implementation of rules and laws that are formulated and designed to take away our peace and limit our freedoms… while the majority just want to live a life of quality, peace and happiness…others wish to create chaos and keep our nation in a state of flux…along with the lives of the average citizen.

If inalienable rights were really honored, freedom would be undeniable and enforced for all people living in the United States…regardless of Race, Color, or Creed…the inalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness would be the golden law of the land, and preserved and protected at all costs…for everyone.

The America we live in today would not exist as a divided land of conscience…if inalienable rights…peace…freedom…equality…liberty…and happiness, reigned in the “Land of the Free.”

Every citizen of this country…regardless of Race, wears shackles…and are slaves to something…someone…real or imaginary…and they keep the cycle of discontent moving…moment to moment…minute by minute…hour by hour…day by day…week by week…year by year…decade to decade…century to century…and beyond…until it builds up such complexity of contagion and spiral webs so tangled…it holds generations captive…with only a few managing to escape the chaos and turmoil to build real and true lives of peace…if ever.

What is real…and what is true? If living in America has taught us anything…it has shown us that history is not reliable, lacking much in what is real and what is true…That anyone can be bought…sold…bartered…traded…and robbed of life…liberty…and the pursuit of happiness…Some victimized themselves by selling their souls…some quite innocently victims…because of the color of their skin…Just ask those who were brought over in shackles because of their looks and color…and ask those who were indigenous and free…loved and honored the land…before they were deemed “savage”…exterminated…with the remaining put on Reservations….

Finding peace in chaos means identifying the chaos and putting an end to it.

Finding peace means when the chaos is identified…the courage to end it must be present…willing and able…to put an end to it…for the sake of peace.

To identify the chaos…one must first seek out the chaos in themselves.  Find the courage to end it once it is identified…and start incorporating peace within…to bring it without…

Once that is done…like-minded individuals begin to emerge on the scene to create peace within communities and chaotic organizations and institutions that create laws and rules designed to keep people suppressed…joyless…prisoners of social, economic and governing disparities, in order to control and regulate the quality of life, while dangling half-eaten carrots under the noses of citizens…who dream of a life of simple pleasures with the means to enjoy life…liberty…and the pursuit of happiness…which is their inalienable right…and their peace.

These laws that are being put into place to suppress specific voters are just the beginning of the end…the end of a young country still battling to find peace.

Being led like sheep to the slaughter only intensifies the chaos and secures a countdown to the end of Democracy… Don’t be fooled…the right hand is keeping the left hand busy by blinding it to the truth of what is really going on. The “right hand” is the politicians running the country as they see fit…The ”left hand” is “We the People.”

We are not a country of “Democrats and Republicans.”  We are a country of people who want our lives to be something more than pieces on a chessboard maneuvered about in somebody else’s game…

Peace will be a struggle…but a battle worth fighting and winning.

Finding peace in a Nation of chaos is up to each and every one of us…

We can do it…

Our Nation awaits….

One Nation…Under God…Indivisible…

One Nation…Under God…Indivisible…

I have said this before…and I will say it again…God will not be mocked.

White supremacy is an affront to God…

To declare anything using God…and acting to the contrary is doing nothing more than inviting Divine retribution. Belief is not a necessary element…every cause has an effect…

On Wednesday, January 6, 2021…America fell from grace…

The appalling insurrection against the Capitol Building in Washington, DC, instigated and continually fueled by Trump and his constituents relentlessly attacking the integrity of the 2020 election and the voting process; was witnessed around the world.  Not only securing doubts about democracy, but witnessing the fall of a giant and ardent supporter, America, who touts being the supreme example of “Democracy.”

Time and time again, the practice of Structural Racism and the institutionalized, condoned behavior and socialization of white supremacy firmly fabricated within the United States, has done nothing but agitate, aggravate, and highlight a foundation of democracy that was built and constructed upon “white supremacy.”

White supremacy is the belief that white people are superior to those of other races and should dominate them…giving rise to belief, defense and maintenance of white power and white privilege…Especially over people of color whose ancestors were forcibly brought to America from Africa to serve as slaves…chattel…victims…disposables…

God will not be mocked…and we must never lose sight of God.

If there is a belief in God and Creation…it must be understood that all are a part of God’s Conscience…functioning within your conscious…

One Nation…Under God…Indivisible….

It appears that all we have ever known…is divisiveness. Especially on Wednesday, and all through the last four years…from the very inception of the Republic…centuries ago.

The most significant and crucial element of democracy is missing and continues to hinder its growth…and that is…CHANGE.

With that being said, the Constitution must change to accommodate the times.

Life has changed and the U.S. Constitution must be amended to encompass change…if democracy is to move forward in standing as a “foundation” in governing…Democracy must have a clean slate to withstand and deliver the ideals of liberty and justice for all…for any nation or any country…especially this nation…this country…

Democracy is defined as “A system of government by the whole of the population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.”

Beginning with the expelling and dissolution of white supremacy…Serving two masters is a fatal process and cannot realize true attainment of democracy in practice “for the people, by the people”…with liberty and justice for all.

Democracy practiced for self-serving purposes is nothing more than a fool’s folly.

Until we can face what really divides us we cannot come together as a nation and rebuild our democracy…or repair the divisiveness.

How often do we stand in denial and cringe at the truth?  We cannot afford to lose another day standing in denial…we must embrace the truth… Truth is the only element that will set this nation free…

Trump and his GOP, as well as his supporters…must face the truth and stop wallowing in white supremacy…

The eyes of the world are all focused on the divisiveness…the doctrines of white supremacy, the lies, the misdirection and the misinformation unleashed upon the country, unabashedly nurtured and dispensed by the GOP…and the aftermath of violence it delivered upon our democracy…

The 25th Amendment would give instantaneous relief to a country beleaguered by Trump and Republican representatives who still nurse self-serving delusions…in their world of privilege, still harboring party loyalty above the good and well-being of the people and country… who they took oaths to serve…it does not matter that there’s just a week and a half left…  So much more damage can be unleashed upon the people and the country in that time…all it takes… is one day out of that week and a half….

As the eyes of the world are upon us…we the people must not forget…and we must take the reins to usher in the change that will salvage and save the foundation of democracy…”For the People…By the People.”

Take a long look at America’s history…

We can build a stronger, better, and lasting foundation upon which to rest our democracy…

One Nation…Under God…Indivisible… With Liberty and Justice…

For All…

We are standing on the edge of a greater precipice…

Will we land on our feet…or be crushed in the fall?

Time… will write this ending…

Along with our love of our country…our fellow countrymen and women…

And our desire to rise from the ashes…victorious and renewed…

God Bless America…

She is… the Phoenix….

Love Always Wins…

Love Always Wins…

No matter how dark the night…

Or how long the day…

No matter how dark the clouds that come your way…

Love Always Wins…

Love should always be the focus in all of our lives, come what may. If we remember to temper everything with love…we will always take away the best in any given situation…no matter how dark and foreboding…

Our Nation made their voices heard on November 3rd, 2020…and the majority voices prevailed…throughout the land…and throughout the heavens…

America’s future is Freedom…

America’s future is Liberty…

America’s future is Justice…

America’s future is a safe haven…

America’s future is embracing her diversity…

America’s future is back on track…

If we ever lose what America stands for…we will cease to be…

Looking through the crowd of people overcome with joy and tears of that joy streaming down many faces…I saw a young girl…overcome with emotion and holding a sign as she watched and listened to Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris speak…The sign read: “Love Always Wins.”

Yes…it does…and if we ever forget that…we will be forever lost in darkness.

Love…Always…Wins….

God Bless America….

One Nation…Under Siege…From Within.

 

Don’t stand by and watch us cry…

Don’t pass by and let us die…

We are a Nation under siege from within…

Rise with courage and rush to defend…

How devastating it is to be betrayed…

By those who swore to be unafraid…

We the People…energize each other…

Unify… strengthen, reinforce the  tie…

Sister to sister…brother to brother…

Let us not utter a sigh!

We are all Liberty’s Children… and she taught us well…

Let’s send that sonofabitch running… back to Hell!

One Nation under siege… from within….

Coveting “pussies” is not our trend!

Be gone, to parties whose loyalties are to none!

Be gone to wolves, who masquerade as “one”…

Turning on their own…Ocasio, you havin’ fun?!

This isn’t just your fight, it belongs to us all!

It’s time to close ranks or hasten the Fall!

One Nation… under siege from within…

The weapon is Truth…that’s how we will win!

Take up your weapons and shake the tree…

Expose all traitors for all to see!

These lies are ongoing to distract our attention….

Enter division, mistrust…chaos…dissention.

Can’t you see, CAN’T YOU SEE?!!

What is really going to be?

Manipulation of the masses…. doomed to endless misery…

You’re not free, says he…

That is  Trump’s mission and legacy…

The Devil plays his fiddle….

Dance, Fools, DANCE!!!

The madman spins his riddle…

Dance, FOOLS, DANCE!!!!

Democracy takes a fatal blow to the middle…

As he aims and throws his lance…

Dance Fools, DANCE!!!

Leave your fates to Chance….

From within….under siege…a Nation dies…

Wake up, stand up!

No time for sighs…

Tear down the “Wall” that  supports the lies…

Before it’s too late, and time flies….

 

 

 

 

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.

Mr. Trump…

I cannot put “President” before your name, because you’re not my president…and from your actions since taking over the White House, you’re not the people’s president either.

My mother taught me to respect all people…including the fools among us…hence, the “Mr.” Trump…You are a classic “social” anti-social…you seek to lay waste to all that is good and just in the United States from the highest seat in the nation affecting other parts of the world, under the guise of “Making America Great, Again.”

We will examine that phrase in more depth at another time…but for now, your task at “making greatness” has been nothing more than promoting more divisiveness, chaos and oppression…

The greatness of America lays in her meaning…Yes, the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, is a woman, a beacon of freedom for those seeking sanctuary and a new life of liberty, along with the pursuit of happiness, in her land…such is your respect for women!

Lest you’ve forgotten, you are the product of immigrants…your wife is an immigrant…in your latest order to ban Muslim immigrants into the country, and your assaults on other immigrants, you are also hurling insults at the memory of your parents, and slapping your wife in the face!

Ignoring your own history as an immigrant, much like Adolf Hitler held blond and blue-eyed to be the “superior in race,” as he himself was brown-eyed, brown hair…to his own admission in description of superior… he was”inferior.”

The indigenous people of the United States of America are Native Americans…Not White Supremacists…perhaps that is why you can so callously sign the halted Dakota Access Pipeline back into play, ignoring the repercussions to health, welfare, tribal customs and environment devastation…just to make a few extra bucks.  The few thousand jobs created short-term are not worth the massive destruction you’ve endorsed…

You do not represent “we the people”… You do not represent the dream of the Founding Fathers… You do not represent the Constitution of the United States…You are not representative of what the dreams and ideals of America stand for…

Your actions, your words, your thoughts, your deeds…are everything that America is not.  Your “style guide” is not a book recommended for anyone’s read or instruction.  Accepting you would make you my accepted style guide…and I don’t accept you… You have no heart…no soul…

ISIS cuts off heads…You, Mr. Trump…you cut out hearts….

“The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.”

Freedom…

mom 3

Freedom…what does it mean to you? To me, it’s just another seven letter word. What did it mean to Michael Brown? Travon Martin? Gerlene Bangs? These were people with lives…and someone decided that they did not deserve their constitutional right to freedom! Who are these people who took away Michael, Travon, and Gerlene’s freedom? If we stand and do nothing to preserve the right to freedom for those like Michael, Travon and Gerlene, soon we will be joining them….as faceless, inconsequential nobodies whose existence can be extinguished by the pull of a trigger, or a swipe of a pen!

Freedom…freedom…freedom! Let freedom ring! Let it resonate from the mountaintops! Let it reverberate through the heavens! Let NO ONE take your freedom!!! Stand up, DO NOT STAND DOWN! Take them down with freedom! Everyday in America, someone wins…and someone loses… Let those who lose be those who take away the freedom of others…

FREEDOM…it is more than a seven letter word…it is life…it is liberty…it is the pursuit of happiness…guard it…protect it…rise up for it…freedom is…your life!
