They Are Here….They…Have Always Been Here…

They are here…They…Have Always Been Here…

There is no need to worry about terrorists infiltrating our country…They are already here.

A terrorist is a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in pursuit of political aims…

There is a group operating in full view… in Washington, D.C….

They have factions operating in every State in the Union…

They are crushing voting rights with lies and deceptions to promote and boost elections in their favor…

They are pushing lies and propaganda to keep their supporters in a stupor of which there seems to be no return…

They are taking the country backwards in Civil and Human Rights…

Promoting Racism…Divisiveness…Insurrection…Sedition…Lies…Lies…and more Lies…

You know them better as the GOP…Republicans…They are the Terrorists…They are traitors to their constituents…leading them to slaughter…then pulling them back from the brink when they need their voting power…and they toss them under the bus after securing what they need, and say it’s coming from the other side of the aisle….when they refuse to participate in bipartisan politics….Look closely…They are the Terrorists…They are the GOP.

They have fully demonstrated that they come first…Not Country…Not their supporters…just themselves…everything else is just “window dressing” to veil their wrestle for complete control of our nation…and run it into the ground…

“America First” is just another Republican ploy…pushed by Trump and the GOP to dismantle democracy…and invoke their separatist agenda…

“America First,” is America being united and moving forward together as one unit…

“America First” isn’t holding the American people hostage by not supporting legislation that will better the quality of life for all Americans…

“America First” is respecting the Constitution and upholding the ideals of America…not destroying them systematically…and holding “Freedom” in chains with rhetoric and lies arresting whatever progress has been made to move our country into the present while building a future for generations to come…

“America First” is ridding our country of those who would seek to destroy it…such as terrorists…acting under the guise of the GOP…the Republican Party….

Stop sleeping with the enemy…

It’s time to wake up…

Clean up…

And take out the garbage…

Remove the terrorists and bring back the Party of Lincoln…

Or say goodbye…

To America.

America isn’t a bargaining chip…neither are its people.

Political Terrorism must be defeated and put to rest…

America…First…

Not Republicans who put themselves first….

Time to clean the House….

It Never Gets Any Easier…

Some days are better than others…

It never gets any easier…

On March 17, 2016, my mom passed away…Today is March 17, 2021…five years to the day. I spent March 16th, 2016 with my mother under the unfortunate circumstances of family members who would not let her live out her last years in peace…to her dying day.

The peaceful moments we shared together in the last years of her life…were priceless!

While I miss her terribly…and long to spend time with her…and hold telephone conversations with her…go to movie matinees with her…hear her laughter and sit down to dinner with her…I wonder if God’s timing wasn’t the best thing that happened to her…in calling her home when he did…

She left in the year of President Obama’s last term…She had the opportunity to see the first Black American family in the White House…

She was spared the blatant rise of Racism here in America against men and women of color; which would have only perpetuated the memory of her own son, my brother, a victim to police murder while visiting relatives in Louisiana in January, 1979…He was 24…unarmed…non-threatening…minding his own business…He was killed for being Black….

Mom would tell me stories about her life growing up in Oklahoma…and the racism and prejudice she endured for being Black…

Mom was spared the lawlessness and White Privilege of the Trump years…and the aftermath of collateral damage to American citizens…left to pick up the pieces of their shattered and broken dreams…and lives…forever altered by a pandemic denied and ignored by Trump and his Trumpist GOP constituency, spinning out of control lies… while fueling divisive propaganda that left American Democracy hanging by a thread, accented by an insurrection which resulted in lives lost, and the Capitol Building being desecrated…

Mom was 83 years when she made her passage to Glory…Had she stayed, she would have been coming upon 89 years…She may not have survived this pandemic with her underlying health issues…Blessings come in many disguises…even if we may not see them that way.

There are days when I awake and think, “I wish I could talk to mom about this…”

I miss her wisdom…her unsolicited advice and opinions…which always seem to be right on time…when you wish they weren’t! I miss our talks…I miss her cooking…I miss all the church socials she would buy me tickets to attend…without asking if I had any plans for those days…of course, I attended with her… I miss the way she extended her love to everyone without question…she always wanted people to be happy and enjoy themselves…I miss how she went out of her way to take care of others…without expectation of anything in return… I miss her smile…her tenderness…her love…

March 17th will always be more than Saint Patrick’s Day to me…

The Luck of the Irish brings home the life and love of my mom…in recognition of a life which will be forever celebrated…in grand old Irish style…and with grand memories in my heart…A picture book I will always have access to enter and view…

Happy celebration of life, mom…

If your mom is still with you in life…show her some love and appreciation…Every moment of every day…

One day her “celebration of life” will be on your doorstep…

Make every second count!

Make love count…

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all….

What Happens Now? Where Do We Go From Here?

What Happens Now? Where Do We Go From Here?

We must decide and make a conscious choice on what happens now…and where we go from here as a nation…and as a people.

We have been given a revelation and expose´ of the decay and corruption actively functioning and deteriorating our country in the form of “self-serving” politicians…particularly represented by the GOP.

What happens now? Where do we go from here?

Party ideology and manipulation and their “interpretation” of the laws which govern our country…are damaging and destructive, divisive, and if we aren’t mindful and careful…will end with the downfall of America…

We have witnessed in our country the dangers and cost of “dictatorship” and extremists actions by putting a political party’s interests…before the interests of our nation.

With a country divided…and allowing what America was subjected to during the last administration…with the GOP and their president’s actions “immune” from accountability…it sends the wrong message.

Democracy is destructible…democracy is weak…democracy can be toppled…if democracy can’t enforce accountability.

What is more disheartening is to see how many people are willing to follow those who disrespect and dishonor…and disregard their oaths to America and its citizens…because they have been on the “crumb” receiving end for so long, they will believe and buy into anything…for a chance to be…something.

America and Americans deserve better than what it has been receiving from the political arena for so long…

We must pay attention to what is going on…and what is going on around us…

Especially in our government… when a door is opened to defy democracy…and it is not closed by accountability to those actions…more will feel free to walk through it…eventually leading a path to successful insurrection and sedition.  January 6, 2021 was a warning…and a preview of things to come…if we do not unify behind accountability…especially accountability of the GOP.

Trump unwittingly delivered the truth in exposing the face of our country with his actions and the complicit and selfish actions and dealings of his fellow Republicans…framing the racial divide…economic disparities…and the thread on which our democracy dangles…due to the rampant and blatant corruption, disregard and manipulations of constitutional law and the rule of law…without conscious regard or remorse….

Democracy was not formed for the power of one political party over another…it was born out of bipartisanship—something long, long lost on the GOP…They have set America on a path to failure and doom…by embracing the most dangerous of her flaws…Power…Greed…and Racism.

Self-hatred only serves to destroy…Immigration is self-hatred to anyone in the Republican party who supported Trump’s agenda on Immigration.  Everyone in the Republican Party is an immigrant…or are children of immigrants…How can you condemn what you are?

What kind of people are these who say they are a party of the people?

They are more like a collective of individuals using the guise of a people’s party as their own private vehicle; allowing them to shape and form the country to realize their own self-serving agendas…while “shepherding” their flock of supporters to the slaughter…shouting all the way that it is indeed the other political party responsible for all of the hardship and partisanship visited upon their supporters…to shield and conceal their true intentions, deceptive actions and natures…

Where we go from here…and what we do now is crucial…Again, one cannot just hand over their pearls to swine wherein they will only be trampled and crushed into powder…under their feet…and under their bus…

The American people aren’t deaf…dumb…or blind to what we have been witnessing in America over the decades…especially the last four years…with the exception of those who choose not to face or believe what has been happening around them…

Ask yourselves…How did Fascism and Nazism come about? It didn’t just spring up from the night all of a sudden…Seeds were planted and nurtured…and allowed to thrive and grow…Just as Trumpism was seeded…aided and abetted…nurtured…and allowed by the GOP…to thrive and grow.  Warning…Warning!

What happens now? Where do we go from here?

That depends upon us…

What do we want to happen now?

Where do we go from here?

Accountability…starts with each and every one of us…

What do we want for America?

Who do we want to represent America?

How do we want to represent America?

How do we want to grow America?

What does America mean to you?

Does America reflect…you?

Do You…believe in America?

What happens now?

You…happen now…

Where do we go from here?

You chart the course…You decide…

Your future is calling…

America…is calling…

Her future…

Is your future…

Our here…is Now…..

Spiritual Food…What Is Your Fuel?

Spiritual Food…

What fuels your spirit?

What is your breakfast…lunch…and dinner of spirit?

What fuel or food do you take in which feeds your spirit?

We know what fuels the body…

We know we must eat to live…not live to eat…yet so many of us live to eat.

We are like kids in a candy store!  The “foodies” among us are generally gourmets in our own right…and we live to eat…despite the fact that what sends our taste buds to the moon we delight in the journey to the point of overdoing it in consumption because it tastes so good!  We know we shouldn’t…we know that for some of us our weight will “wear” what we eat…and for some of us we may suffer health issues…however, that piece of chocolate cake, or that extra helping of fries gives us that ”devil-may-care” attitude and we convince ourselves that we’ll deal with the physical consequences of our gastronomic indulgences…later.

So what consequences result in regards to spiritually overindulging in what we “feed” our spirits?

The greatest examples of spiritual consumption of fuels and foods that work contrary to the spirit is what we’ve witnessed in the last four years in the form of Trump…his GOP…his supporters…

They chose to feed their spirits Lies instead of Truth…

Hatred… instead of Love…

Violence… instead of Peace…

Suppression… instead of Freedom…

Division… instead of Unity…

Cruelty… instead of Compassion…

Selfishness… instead of Humanitarianism…

Anger… instead of Levelheadedness…

Delusion… instead of Reality…

Absolute Power… instead of Democracy…

Eventually, the continual ingesting of these foods and fuels to the spirit will result in the demise of the spirit… Nothing good can ever emerge from evil… and only good…can deliver from evil….

Should we find ourselves walking down the path of evil…by feeding our spirits with foods and fuels that are not in sync with nourishing, lifting and enlightening our spirits to the highest level of humility, humanity…and love…we must step back and observe what is going on around us…and within us…and ask, “Am I contributing to my highest good which connects to all those around me…including the well-being of the planet? Or am I connecting with the darkest abominations of my spirit…and casting those monstrosities upon the world in destruction of humanity and the planet?”

Observe the chaos in our country and the world…take note of the “plagues” in the form of a mutating virus which gives minuscule signs of hope…only to take away that hope in delivering perhaps more devastation upon humanity…because there are those who choose to feed their spirits rebellion and defiance…rather than comply to social distancing and mask wearing to save themselves…and their fellow humans…

Look at the changing weather patterns due to the mistreatment of our planet through the quest for material gain in destroying the environment…and our atmosphere…. by drilling and sucking the life out of the planet…and releasing gases into the air that we breathe…and eating the foods and fueling the mind with denial…and “natural occurrences” rhetoric that takes place every 100 years or so…

After centuries and decades of ingesting and releasing spiritual pollutants…we are witnessing the results.

We must change what we feed and how we fuel our spirits…

Those of us who understand and are working on maintaining our diets of spiritual intake with positive and enlightening energies must continue to forge forward in our practices… We must encourage those who are working to get on and stay on the path of nourishing their spirits and the spirits of others with “good and healthy” foods and fuels…and increase in number and voice to counteract those who choose to continue to overindulge in satiating their bottomless, spiritual appetites for corruptible and egregious foods and fuels.

We will prevail if we stay the course…beginning with addressing the spiritual fallout that has left our country in a state of disarray and chaos…

Compromise only leads to eventual backsliding and succumbing to temptation…

Lead us not into temptation…

Take our daily bread…

Deliver us from evil…

By the way of the Spirit…

Manna from Heaven…

And our spiritual food and fuel…

Of Truth…..

We cannot afford to wait until later…

We cannot put off tomorrow…what can be done today…right now…

Every moment that goes by…

Our spirits hunger…

There are no substitutions…

Take in what is good…

And feed your spirit.

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….

This Truth Is Evident…

This Truth Is Evident…

The Republican Party…Must GO!

In its present state, it is a Party of Insurrectionists…Sedition…Treason…Traitors…Sociopaths…Pathological Liars…Conspiracy Propagandists…Self-Anointed Elitists…Bullies…Cowards…Political Chameleons…Loyalists to their own self-gain…and Power Extremists.

They do not serve allegiance to the Republic…or the people they took oaths to serve…They are self-serving and devoid of honor, truth and integrity.  This truth is evident…and truth is not always kind…

They are the putrefaction of white supremacy and white privilege…a truth that is not kind…

Trump is not gone as long as the present Party of GOP loyalists are allowed to move forward…as if the last four years of their enabling of a dictator and his demonic rise in the Office of the President of the United States… never took place…as if the insurrection at the Nation’s Capital Building on January 6, 2021, never took place…

As long as the GOP continues to recite their mantra, that “Trump is out of office now” while planting divisive seeds that another impeachment trial would sow further division, because the country needs to heal…our democracy is still in danger…

Healing will not take place if accountability is swept under the rug… and “division” of a different sort will surely take place…a division that will destroy democracy and America…

This present rhetoric from the GOP is merely a diversion to steer the people who believe in this country and what it is meant to stand for away from supporting the second impeachment trial… They want to accomplish this in order to ensure that Trump’s supporters remain intact to bolster their thirst and continued quest for power in their votes, luring them to believe that Trump will make a run for the Presidency in 2024… With the second impeachment trial, and a conviction, Trump will be barred from running for any office… ever again. 

This Truth Is Evident….

Accountability must be served on behalf of the American people… Salvation and preservation of our Democracy hangs in the balance….

This Truth Is Evident…

We cannot afford to let this moment pass without retribution…the price our country and every American will pay…will permanently divide us…and destroy us.

This Truth Is Evident…

If we believe in a free country…in a free world…we must support the safeguards of our democracy…and put them to test…and show the world that we stand on what we believe in…and what we are going to do to defend it…within our country…as well as outside of our country.

This Truth Is Evident…

And it is soberly clear…America’s credibility stands on her “Accountability.”

Is there a “backbone” to American democracy?

What is the Constitution? If it is not the document of our democracy, what is it?

While it is not perfect…and it needs to be amended to service the continuing change and growth to accommodate centuries of America’s ever-evolving tapestry…our Constitution calls for “Accountability.”

Conquering our weaknesses as a country…is our strength as a nation.  Our nation’s longevity stands on the fine line of overcoming our weaknesses by directing our strength to enforce the truth of our democracy: Defiance demands and delivers accountability…to anyone who challenges its sovereignty….

This Truth Is Evident…

Usurping the Constitution… infringes the will of the people.

Abuse of power must be met with shutting down that power…and severing any and all avenues to that power ever occurring again.  Impeachment of Trump is that accountability…without any shadow of a doubt.

Lincoln and real Republicans weep at the destruction of their party by their own hand and despicable actions…Give them a reality check: Treason will not be tolerated on any level…

This Truth… Is Evident….

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

All of the GOP must be held accountable and expelled from the Senate and the House…

Their Party needs a gutting and complete makeover… Examples must be made or we ARE a failed democracy…some countries have already come to that conclusion.

A stand must be taken…

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

Only ten Republicans in the House on Wednesday, January 13, voted to impeach Trump…

Let us remember that the first impeachment effort only yielded one Republican Senator who voted for one article of impeachment…and voted against the other…Trump was guilty of both…  While this one senator voted for one article of impeachment, and voted against the other…he was still complicit.  He rode the fence…Fence riding constitutes a divided mind…or appeasement…It’s all or nothing…one cannot go “half-sees” on high crimes and misdemeanors…or excuse insurrection, sedition and treason.

 Addressing the ten who voted for impeachment…where have they been for the last four years?!

They were all in support of and parties to the horrific, chaotic, lie-spinning, propaganda induced Trump machine-turned-seditious-insurrectionist-terrorist-dictator-supremacist…with complete abandon…to our country…its citizens…and their political careers… Only ten had a sudden epiphany and awoke from their Trump-induced stupor?

Before you argue with someone, ask yourself, “Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of different perspective?” If not there is no point to argue. (Dick Gregory)

For Republicans…there is and was no point to argue…but to act upon the obvious…They refused…and many still refuse and have totally embraced and bought into the lies as their reality.  What does that say about their mental state of minds?

Truth…and impeachment will unify Americans who expect integrity, honesty and transparency…

The lies and loyalty to shield an insurrectionist and seditionist will only serve to further divide our nation…and invite the lawlessness and self-serving actions continually practiced by the GOP and their defeated leader…by others who may feel so emboldened to do so.

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

It is time for Reconstruction…it is time for the creation of a new party or parties…that represent integrity, truth, honor, the country, its citizens and equality…out of the ashes of the GOP…

The Democratic Party must do a better job at defending our country, its citizens and the principles and values they share with the American people who believe in and love America, by strengthening their party and teaching its wet-behind-the ears, young, progressive members that experience can blend with progressive change by working together to create a blended, changing party by implementing new policies with aged wisdom and season… For Democrats…the time has arrived…make it count.

The redefining of America is under the eye of scrutiny from every nation around the globe…This moment will determine America’s resilience to come back from the blow of domestic terrorists of her own making…

The seeds of racism and racial divide planted with the inception of slavery continuing to bear strange fruit in blue uniforms…and white privilege…

Economic disparities creating divides that are deepening and changing the meaning of the “American family”…

Homelessness…increasing poverty…a dismissed virus that exploded…and shined a spotlight on those left behind in healthcare…

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

The irony of it all is a failure…inciting and manipulating a nation’s flaws…to destroy it.

It goes… beyond… rational comprehension…..

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….

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….

America…The Ugly?

I had been wanting to write something a few days ago…and my instincts told me to wait…Today’s startling and horrific events which took place at our nation’s Capitol was not anticipated to be the topic of my post…it was going to be on the future…how we must accentuate the positive…and how change for the beginning of our nation was on the upswing with the winning of two new Senators from Georgia…who were bringing positive and new ideals to the Senate…where a 50/50 split and a deciding vote in the Senate…was as it should be…and should have always been…because THAT is the meaning of “bipartisan” politics…

Then…once again…Trump happens. He has a penchant for making sure that he is at the center of every chaotic chapter of government and democracy unraveling to the tune of his demented imaginings…The problem is so simple to fix…yet those who can fix it lack the courage and integrity to do so.

Therefore, the world received another bird’s eye view into “The Ugly Americans.”

We cannot preach to the world what we cannot or will not practice. We cannot condemn what is perceived as “Third World” behavior…when Trump is writing the script and putting it into inception by his dictator mentality and his sociopathic behavior. Demanding loyalty to his divisive and destructive antics…

Four people died today at this domestic terrorist insurrection devised by Trump…Does anyone think he cares? One would think that his Party would snap out of it and understand that this person they so fear and have pledged their undying loyalty to, is just a man…a demented one no less…but just a man. A man who has lost an election and will be out of the White House, by hook or crook…on January 20, 2021. The fear and cowardice of his Party…has brought us to this moment of his lunacy…due to their quest for power…

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

Edmund Burke knew… It takes truly special men and women to put country and its people first… The Republican Party has shown us in majority that they put themselves…first…Power over People…creating…”America…The Ugly.”

Now that this “Reign of Terror” which most of the GOP supported…and many still silently support, is nearing its public end…What is waiting in the wings…in their subversive chamber of horrors?

Will “Trumpism” fade into the woodwork once he is led from the White House? If only they had the courage and conviction to invoke Article 25… Two more weeks of Trump can give America another shocking and brutally devastating blow under his demonic madness in instigating boiling cauldrons of chaos…

Tomorrow is another day…

Let us hope that we are safe…

Not only from the virus…

But from each other…

Again we are relying on the compassion of one another to know the difference between right and wrong…and doing the right thing.

The other cheek is now stained with blood…

America…The Ugly?

We cannot afford to offer another cheek. To strengthen our nation we must be true to the values and documents of our democracy…

Article 25…its your turn to color America…beautiful…..
