Trump was never contrite, apologetic nor humbled. Blinded by ambition, power, and notoriety, Trump did and continues to do what a self-center, frighten bully does. Double down on whatever the narrative is. If Trump was a child, I believe many of us would feel sorry for him, however, Trump is a seventh-four-year-old man behaving like a corrupt criminal frighten of being exposed. Trump’s behavior is much similar to the people Americans once describe as ignorant, folks who double down on their feelings rather than deal with the facts. I know it’s uncomfortable, to speak in such fashion but Trump is an uncomfortable person to digest.
In my last blog, I spoke about how broken our democracy is. Americans need the Republican Party to awake and face their Goliath as David did. The rest of us need our Republican Congress and Senators to stand up to Trump and to rebuke, then demonstrate what Democracy truly looks like to this President. Too often we’ve have given far too much energy and focus on Trump. Maybe if we spent more energy focusing on the leaders in the Republican Party we could encourage them to do something.
I believe America’s Democracy is worth asking them to risk their Political career and yes, that means facing Trump’s no-nonsense supporters.
No longer can they respectfully claim to be the Party of Lincoln while at the same time relinquishing their power to a corruptable leader. Character still matters to me, I hope it still matters to you; to do that which is right even if it means a temporary loss. Doing what is right even when you think others are not watching, but because it is the right thing to do.
Now to those who continue to give an incoherent explanation and support for/to Trump I hope that you are able to look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself if he represents your values.
Spiritually speaking: Trump’s behavior and Character are totally opposite of Christ or any Spiritual Leaders that we’ve come to know (I am confused as to why The Religious Right supporters believe in him). With all of that being said, history will not judge us by what we say (Senator Susan Collins) but by our actions. Did we stand for Liberty and Justice or did we cave in under pressure to embrace our Party rather than our Country?
Seemingly every day, we wake up hearing about Trump breaking a new law since the Impeachment Trial. Recently, he asked Governor Cumbo to lighten up on all those charges the State Of New York has against him, so he (Donald Trump) could do better business deals. And now as I write
Prosecutors Quit Roger Stone Case After Justice Dept. Intervenes on Sentencing
President Trump had complained that the recommendation of seven to nine years in prison for his former adviser and longtime friend was a “miscarriage of justice.”
AFTER IMPEACHMENT it’s clear to see that this man is Out-Of-Control!
Politicians and Political pundits are critical of the Democrats Candidates, thinking they may not have what it takes to win over Trump. Oddly enough, before Impeachment, they had almost every Candidate beating Donald Trump. And now, we’re supposed to believe these very same people claiming that the Democratic Candidates are too weak to win? Maybe these Pundits are concerned about television ratings, or maybe they’re thrilled by a horse race, at this point I’m uncertain of their motives but I can’t judge them. However, what I can state clearly is that the SOUL of Our DEMOCRACY is at HAND, we cannot continue playing Politics as usual. The State Of Our Union is Broken, we all must take responsibility if by grace we can put it back together.
I believe we need the Republican Party to stand up to Donald Trump, If we are to Take Our Country Back, If we are To continue DEMOCRACY, If we are to enjoy Life, Liberty and The Pursuit Of Happiness, If we are to abide by the Consitution and The Rule Of Law. America needs Republicans to put the values of America first. It’s been written long ago that Disruption and defeat can sometimes come from surprising places, “For it was not an enemy that reproached me, then I could have borne it, neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me, then I would have hid myself from him” (Psalm 55:12).
America is left in the hands of a lunatic, a man drunken with power…AFTER IMPEACHMENT
