The Will Of The People…

It was the will of the people and the voice of their votes that freed the country from a tyrant…

It will once again be the will of the people and the people’s vote that will be the instrument of securing a second impeachment vote through the Senate…

An insurrection was recruited…nursed…and empowered by Trump to his supporters, to rise up against the Capitol where the Senate and House were in session to ceremoniously confirm the results of the 2020 Election, declaring President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris the victors of said election with the tally of electoral votes.

The present Republican Party has made their position very clear.  They intend to defend a traitor to our country…attempting to overthrow democracy for his own self-serving agenda, in order to retain Trump’s supporters, in a veiled attempt to override the Constitution’s call to hold treason and sedition accountable, by saying Trump is no longer in office, so he is no longer accountable for his actions.

What Constitution are they quoting?! The Constitution does not make such a claim as they are trying to introduce.  There is nothing “unconstitutional” in holding an insurrectionist, in the office of President, impeached for a second time while in office, accountable…It is the duty of the House and The Senate to uphold the remedy of the Constitution of the United States. Didn’t they swear and take an oath to protect the country and its citizens against this very thing? All enemies within and outside of the United States of America?

The whole world witnessed his words…his actions…and his deed of accomplishment…January 6, 2021 is now a part of American history at its worst…nothing will reverse the lives that were lost or the damage that was done…yet something can be done to ensure accountability as called for in the U.S. Constitution: Impeachment. 

The attempt by the GOP to delay the trial until Trump left office, believed that they had a defense to once again look the other way.  Smoke and mirrors are the mastery of the GOP.  Misdirection…Delusion…Complicity…Division. Major players in the Republican Rule Book on fooling the people all of the time to retain power for self-serving preservation. 

The party of Lincoln switched.  Back in the 1860’s, Republicans dominated the northern states, and the Democrats dominated the South…The Republicans orchestrated the expansion of federal power…The Democrats opposed it.  Republicans passed laws granting protections for Black Americans and advanced social justice.  Democrats opposed these expansions of federal power.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a Democratic President, won reelection in 1936 on his introduction of the New Deal, reforms to remedy the Depression.  The remedies included the regulation of financial institutions, the creation of welfare and pension programs, infrastructure development…

They took form in the following programs and agencies…The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the Civil Works Administration (CWA), the Farm Security Administration (FSA), the National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933 (NIRA) and the Social Security Administration (SSA).

These programs and agencies provided support for farmers, the unemployed, youth and the elderly.

The defeated Republican candidate, Alf Landon, opposed these exercises of federal power.

It is imperative that people understand the stance their chosen parties represent…and how they came to champion the stance that distinguishes one party from the other.  Republicans are the party of “bigger businesses and hands-off government.” It is their assertion that hands-off government is better for business.  Where does that leave the average working-class American? 

Become informed…Read…Research from highly reliable sources…it is tragic to be regarded as sheep…who can be led to slaughter…Trump threw his supporters under the bus…Remember…He told his supporters as he urged them to march on the Capitol Building, “I will be right there with you.”  He was nowhere to be found.  He abandoned them after accomplishing his agenda of getting them to fight his delusional battle…

Today, this is not about labels of division such as “Democrats” or “Republicans.”

When we “see” each other as people…we see and measure the hearts and minds of people…that gives us our true picture…

Who we will trust…

Who we will know by their character…

Who we will know by their integrity…

Who we will know by their honor…

Who we will know by their honesty…

Who we will know by their words…

Who we will know by their word…

Who we will know by their actions…

Who we will know by their deeds…

Who we will know by their truth…

We know that the Party of Lincoln was once a party of the people…

The GOP is now a party of antagonists…championing lies…deceit…corruption…subversion…insurrection…sedition…delusion…exclusion…revolution…white supremacy…white privilege…racism…division…destroyers of democracy…freedom…justice…liberty…America.

Wrong is right…and right is wrong…Self-service is king…and power is supreme…Just ask Mitch McConnell and his Republican cronies.  In their eyes, American citizens are just collateral damage to their complicit behavior in giving Trump a free pass to walk away without accountability for nearly destroying our country under their watch.

We can ensure they are all held accountable…

Stop the support. Stop the funding. Stop voting for those who do not have your best interests at heart. Don’t look at labels…Look at people.  Look for people who are salvageable and redeemable…The Republican party has shown the world who they really are…and what they are really all about.  They didn’t care about standing by their oaths to country and the people…they cared about themselves…and their political careers and futures…without caring about credibility and integrity.

It is so unfortunate that “real” Republicans across the country who stood up to the Trump Manifest, must belong in a party with the Hill GOP, who are disgraces to the former party of Lincoln…

Look at these politicians as who and what they are…people…people who choose and chose to be unsavory…unapologetic…without shame… and abandon their country for power… which is diminishing…

It will be the will of the people that will bring unity in spite of Republican attempts to divide a nation.

It will be the will of the people which will answer the call of the Constitution to hold Trump accountable along with those who aided and abetted his agenda and insurrection to overthrow democracy.

We know that violence never extends itself to purpose…violence is desperation when truth and reason prevail…Trump and his supporters showed the world this with their actions….

We must stand on democracy to deliver democracy…

The Constitution demands accountability by impeachment…there is nothing unconstitutional about it.

The Republican Party does not speak for the people…nor do they know the will of the people…

The road to unity is accountability…

It is the will of the people…for the people…by the people….

Soul Searching…

Soul Searching…

If we haven’t already…now is the time to do some soul searching…

It’s time to take a good look inside of ourselves…and ask questions…and seek honest answers to the questions…from ourselves.

It’s time for accountability…from all of us.

Who are we? What do we want for America? What do we want for ourselves?

You see…what we want for America is going to determine our lives…our children’s lives…and the future of America.

After Trump’s insurrection failed on Wednesday to overturn tenets of our Democracy…it left open some very important avenues of thought…and opened up discoveries of character in government officials…that were elected into office…by the people.

This “Trump Revolution” revealed that there are still people functioning within our government who support the violence and desecration that took place against and in the Capitol Building, by their continued insistence of resistance to accept the voice and will of the people through their votes…

Those Senators and Representatives who still insisted upon their objections by citing the Election as fraudulent and “rigged” during the certification process, clearly declared their allegiance to a violent mob of domestic terrorists…and a rogue seditionist by the name of Donald Trump…Who once was followed and supported by the entire GOP…

“Loyal” behavior and practice in respect to one’s party does not belong in bipartisan politics…it does not serve the people…it only serves “Party politics” and “Party” lust of power…We were given an inside view and four years of demonstration, by the Republican Party.

“If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed……..and we will deserve it.”

Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted this back on May 3, 2016.

He clearly ignored the voice of his soul…and lost it along the way.  Winning back his soul and the confidence of the people will be a long, uphill climb for him and his colleagues, if at all possible to do so…

Which goes to say that the present GOP should be held at arm’s length and seriously re-evaluated as to their viability in serving the American people with integrity, courage, honor and respect to the oaths that they took to serve, and their ability to put country before self-serving interests.  In this case, severing the head from the body is only half the solution to restoring the sanctity of American Democracy.

Resignations…re-elections…and replacements should be the order of the day for Republican Senators and House Representatives who have shown their true colors…and they are still a danger to democracy as long as they are allowed to hold their seats in both Houses.

The strength of leadership is reflective of its constituents…

Those of us who understand the ideals of America and what America should be and can be…know that this is the time to stand up be true to the concept of America…

Land of the Free…Home of the Brave does not enlist what we’ve witnessed in the last four years, culminating in Wednesday’s horrific display of home-grown terrorism…cultivated by a self-serving, narcissistic sociopath, and a power mesmerized group of individuals calling themselves, “The Party of Lincoln.”  Think of how many times Lincoln turned over in his grave….

Soul Searching… this is not who we are…

Soul Searching… this is not what we want for our children…

Soul Searching… this is not what we want for America…

Soul Searching… this is not what we want for ourselves…

Soul Searching… this is not America…while many want it to be…it is not.

Every last one of those insurgents who stormed the Capitol Building…are descendants of immigrants… Not one of them are indigenous to America…including Donald Trump.

America…does not belong, and never has naturally belonged to them.

The Natives of America understood and honored their relationship with this country in a giving and taking which respected the unity and the reverence of life and support… by protecting this land…And they were punished…and some tribes wiped out for it.

We cannot have history repeating itself by feeding the demons who thrive from sowing hatred and destruction due to their lack and absence of humanity…

We stand at a door that now leads to the future of America…

We will determine what she stands for…and how we will achieve the best of America and her ideals…or fall further into a chaotic inferno of her demise…

Soul Searching will be the agenda for the coming year…

Every day we are given to rise…we must search our souls…we must understand how important we are in securing the future of our nation…and one another…

What do you love most about living?

Search your souls before you answer…

Tomorrow is not promised to any of us…but we can ensure a better tomorrow…today….

Soul Searching… can reveal the answer…

Take a moment…

Listen to your Soul….

a day
