We Use To Be A Civilized Society

peace

It would be my guess that the great majority of Americans are far too busy trying to make ends meet.  They get up every day and take care of business.  All the while trusting that those they have sent to Washington D.C. to look out for them are doing their job.  Most people don’t have time to research daily to find the truth.  Instead they rely on the main stream media to inform them of the facts.

When members of the US Congress are more interested in pleasing deep pocket donors than representing their constituents this country has a problem.  When US Congress members behave as if the ends justify the means this country has a problem.  When the Democratic Party can’t speak without obscene language and name calling this country has a problem.  When one political party vilifies another political party this country has a problem.

When Federal Judges play politics from their bench they demean the Constitution of The United States of America.  When a member of the most esteemed of our three branches of government, The Supreme Court cannot keep her political views to her self it is time for her to retire.  The judicial branch of the United States must be above reproach.  Otherwise they are not worthy of the power we give them.

When those we entrust to keep this Nation safe cannot keep their mouths shut this country is in trouble.  “Loose lips sink ships.”  When citizens Forth Amendment rights are being trampled this country is in trouble.  When those within our government try to take down a sitting President this country is in trouble.

When college campuses receiving large amounts of Federal funding are nothing more than indoctrination centers our education system is broken.  When students with differing views are afraid to speak our education system is broken.  When our students world-wide test scores are dismal while we out spend all other countries our education system is broken.  When students leave college buried in debt our education system is broken.

When the main stream media practice propaganda they are the enemy of the people.  When the main stream media misrepresents events they are the enemy of the people.  When the main stream media no longer provides viewers with the facts and allows them to draw their own conclusions they are the enemy of the people.  When the main stream media no longer tells the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth they are the enemy of the people.

Presidents come and go.  But, the office remains the same.  When any President is vilified daily with fear mongering, innuendos and lies in an effort to disrupt his agenda it tears away at our democracy.  When former FBI Directors act like they are in middle school it tears away at our democracy.  When US Congress Members denounce people guilty and then investigate it tears away at our democracy.

Make no mistake about it.  This Nation is at a juncture in the road.  It is time we ask ourselves what kind of country do we want to live in.  Do we want our children growing up in fear?  Do we want our neighborhoods overrun with violent criminals?  Do we want citizens to feel opioids are the only answer?  Do we want our United States Congress Members to be assassinated for their political affiliations?

It seems the United States of America must decide if we want to be a civilized society or one of mob rules.
