It has been a while since I made a political post and I hope it will be some time again before I write another, but I feel it is important to have my say before things happen that people will want to quickly forget about. Shame on America, shame on all Republicans and shame on all Democrats for what you have done to this country. Because of your greed, hatred, and apathy has brought to this country the plague that is the Donald Trump Presidency, including the oozing, pustular sores that are the Senate and Congress.
Shame on the Republican Party for letting their greed become the root for the tree of Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists. A greed so all consuming that you forsook your obligation to protect America from all threats, external and internal. Shame on all decent Republican Americans who allowed their better Angels to be suffocated in their sleep by the devils of their darker nature. Shame on you for forgetting histories lessons from the World and the United States, which would have told you exactly what would happen when you put Trump into power.
Shame on the Democratic Party for choosing to support the greedy donors over the suffering people at home and abroad. Shame on you for the same greed that allowed the Republicans to overlook every glaring fault of their candidate. You are not blameless when it comes to Hillary Clinton, the only candidate on a par with Donald Trump for sleazy, corrupt leadership. Shame on all Democrats for voting for either worthless candidate for fear that the other would get in. The damage to this country is as much your fault as it is the Republicans.
Shame on all Americans who have carried a swelled sense of Pride from our victories in WWI and WWII. Your pride allowed you to blind yourself to the horrible things our government has done in the name of American Interests (commonly known as corporate greed). We have backed dictators, murderers, drug dealers, thieves, monarchs, and torturers in the name of profit and cheap oil. We have turned a blind eye on the use of chemical weapons and torture for the sake of convenience. The greed of our banking industry and financial markets have brought ruin upon this earth many times and still we drink the poisoned kool-aid.
Shame on Republicans and Democrats alike for turning away from the historic opportunity the 2016 election offered us. An opportunity even more historic than the election of the first Black President. The opportunity to soundly reject the miserable candidates selected for us by the greedy banks and corporate wealthy. To choose, as Richard Pryor’s Brewster campaigned, None of the Above. The chance to say no, we will not be forced to choose between the evils you have picked for us. Imagine the shock on the Koch bothers faces if the election had come out with no winner. That could have happened if you would have written in a candidate instead of choosing either Donald J. Trump or Hillary R. Clinton. The foundations of Hell would have quaked at the sight.
Very soon we will have another historic chance. We will be faced with the demise of the most disgusting President to have power over the fate of this country. We can chose to let the Republican and Democratic parties slink away to hide in a corner until we forget the mess they made, giving them a chance to begin the dog and pony show all over again or, we can rise up as one nation and hold their collective noses in their own filth so they remember, never do it again.
One final thought for tonight, remember it daily. We all bare the blame for this mess. We were greedy for money, cheap garbage, and short term-hate satisfaction. We have allowed the lobbyists, bank CEOs, WallStreet financiers, Corporate Leaders, haters, and Politicians to bring this Country to the brink of destruction and the World to the edge of Armageddon.
And shame on me for being so frustrated that I could not express this so well before.
