What Did We Have To Lose?

“What the hell do you have to lose?” Donald Trump asked of an all white audience in Ohio and Michigan in reference to Black Americans. Not once, did he ask the question in front of a predominantly Black audience and I’m sure the reason he didn’t, he knew he’d get an answer he wouldn’t like. So, this was his campaign question and it was re-asserted with a meeting of Black lawmakers in Washington with the Congressional Black Caucus. Now, 11 months into his installed position at the White House, not only can he not answer the question, he’s demonstrated he doesn’t care what the answer is or might have been.

Not only have Black Americans not gained anything from his being elected through the rigged, Russian interference, all Americans have lost — all those who are not rich and not old white men.

The Traitor has demonstrated his loathing of women, people of color and those who are financially strapped through no fault of their own, other than the circumstances of their birth. He accused over 16 women of lying when they lay accusations of sexual misconduct at his feet — disdaining them as if they were a pieces of garbage and only chose women to serve in his cabinet who are for the most part — pretty subservient. Although he had at least one strong defender in the White House — Omarosa — she has since been booted out and that only leaves — Ben Carson — the total belly-waxer who grovels every time Traitor Don looks his way.

But it’s not just the women and the Black folks who have lost. When we look at everything he’s done so far and God help us if the Republican-led Congress won’t wake up and smell the stench — we see one thing pretty clearly — Donald Trump only cares about Donald Trump and what he wants and to hell with anyone else and the Constitution.

Through the storms and the rain from Harvey and Maria and the fires in California, we discover that addressing catastrophic situations are not his strong suit. In fact, from his delayed responses, it would appear that he had to be reminded that these events were occurring. The same is true of Heather Heyer’s murder, the massacre in Las Vegas, and in the small town in Sutherland Springs, Texas — his remarks were perfunctory, not comforting as if he hated the interruption of his daily tweet rants and golf games. He was rude to a Gold-Star widow, Myeisha Johnson, on the phone (at least that was her perception) and then he attempted to belittle Congresswoman Fredericka Wilson who was with Myeisha when she got the phone call from Trump.

Leaders from the Historical Black Colleges were invited to the Oval Office for for a photo op and after making empty promises, they were no longer needed and nothing he said to them has been fulfilled. They lost needed funding to continue their mission to provide quality educational opportunities for a predominantly Black student body.

He’s rolled back consumer protection regulations that now allow coal mines to poison streams and other water systems; manufacturers are free to pollute the air and manufacture pesticides that cause brain damage and create toxic soil in food production.

He’s pulled out of the Paris Accord agreement regarding global warming because his limited ability and understanding of science has convinced him, the United States doesn’t need to participate.

He’s insulted world leaders and attempted to bully them into doing what he wanted with an assist from Nikki Haley, who apparently has joined the cult of stupidity.

His tax cut scam— benefits only the very wealthy and corporations — those earning less than $100K a year will have to suffer the consequences of not making more money and in paying increased taxes — on a graduated time scale. And it looks like — if Paul Ryan has his way — those of us who are older, Senior Citizens will lost Social Security benefits and Medicare benefits. A whole of lot losing going on from this corrupt administration and Congress.

Over 9 million children have lost access to medical care and another 13 million will suffer from the loss of healthcare insurance with the removal of the “ACA mandate.”

Native Inhabitants are losing protected lands (national monument regions being shrunk it size) because of the greed of the wealthy donors so they can “drill for oil” and uranium.

Alaskans are losing precious wildlife area — again for greed — focusing on the rich, not the land.

Puerto Ricans have lost much — access to electrical power, needed medicine and food supplies because of Maria and the Traitor in the Oval Office doesn’t seem to concerned about them.

America has lost her standing on the global stage because of his ineptness and incompetence and if he has his way, many parents will lose their children in a war that does not have to be, but will because the Traitor is a bully and has no common sense or decency.

Many families will lose their homes due to the inflation that is bound to occur with the lopsided tax code passed by greedy Republicans who care more about money than their constituents.

Access to a quality education is lost because of his lack of education (how he obtained a degree is a mystery, but most of us have concluded — daddy paid for it). Betsy DeVos is the worst person in the world to head the Department of Education because she knows nothing about public education and could care less.

Traitor Don admits all his cabinet members are his billionaire buddies (or least those who contributed millions to his campaign) because he “couldn’t have a poor person in a cabinet position.” Many of us could argue that point effectively, but it would be a waste of breath and time.

Some people have lost sleep since November 8, 2018 and a desire to live — anticipating the worse — every morning they wake.

So, what did we have to lose? It appears quite a bit — a sense of security and stability — since none exists in the White House. Hatred and bigotry abound because it spills over from the White House, unfettered, unfiltered as anyone who dares to disagree with him, is belittled or undermined.

No peace, no compassion, no empathy, no real leadership — that’s what we lost when Russian interference and foolish people decided to elect a reality TV has-been rather than a competent woman — simply because she was a woman and her last name was Clinton.

Though we have lost — some of what we had and some of what will never be — we don’t have to lose more. We can take it all back — by voting for Everyone who runs as a Democrat in 2018 and 2020 — The Blue Vote — will at least give us back a sense of security and our rightful place on the global stage — without influence from Russia or greedy Republicans.

We can stop the madness — from the impotent Republican majority and the traitor in the White House, but we have to take off the blinders that hinder the truth of the matter and put our feelings aside for the good of America — all of us, not just some of us.

Christianity and Political Parties

Christianity and Political Parties

Since there are really no passages of scripture that deal directly with politics, I thought I’d share some of the comments that have made to me over the course of this year. Many, who claim to be Christians revealed their political party preference and concluded that I couldn’t be a Christian and be Democrat.

But I can and am! To be perfectly honest, I’d bet the farm that Jesus is more proud of me as a Democrat than He is of some the Republicans who only want to control others, not do the work as He commanded us to do.

They want to control what women do with their bodies; they want to legislate or rather re-legislate what the 2nd Amendment means and their purported interest in the “church having priority over government.” They have misunderstood and misrepresented the 1st Amendment and continue to lie to anyone who’s foolish enough to listen without doing some research of their own.

No long dissertation today, just a few words in pictorial formats to underscore my point!

Christian Democrat

benefitsI Am

Now–they say (that infamous “they”) that a picture is worth a thousand words. I rest my case.

Lord, Help!

Lord, Help!

Once again, we seem to be spinning out of control–America at-large that is. I’m guessing, it’s because as a society, we have been far too lenient and tolerant of unacceptable behavior that many have brushed off or under a rug.

No long winded commentary today, just a reminder about where stand in the eyes of the world. Sexual assault, misconduct, harassment are not acceptable by anyone towards anyone else. We are supposed to be civilized human beings and I’m wondering when we’ll demonstrate that to others. No one–NO ONE–should be touched or man-handled by another person unless they are consenting to the act. 14 year-olds do not legally have the right to consent and most don’t. Having stated the obvious, what we are doing in this country when:

Al Franken is never given the opportunity for due process to take its course when he concedes to his party’s requests and resigns.

John Conyers resigns amid sexual misconduct allegations and failing health.

Trent Franks resigns because apparently he doesn’t understand what constitutes sexual misconduct when speaking about surrogacy with employees.

Blake Farenthold is offering to pay back $84 thousand dollars paid to squash allegations of sexual misconduct and to resign.

Both Democrats and Republicans on the surface at least, have demonstrated some sense of decency and responsibility.

But then we have an accused pedophile running for the Senate in Alabama in order to hold a Republican seat in Congress and people are applauding him and claiming his accusers are criminals. I’d like to know where that law is written–if a person accuses someone of a crime–they become the criminal! Sounds like some misogynistic, bigoted premise that only a fool would believe. But then again, let’s look at who’s supporting him. Senate Majority Leader–Mitch McConnell and trump–who has over 12 women accusing him of sexual misconduct.

Neither Roy Moore or TraitorDon plan to step aside or resign. Why? They deny doing anything wrong and claim the women lie. I believe the women, but if the rest of America doesn’t take a stand, the women will never be heard.

Quite frankly, I’m tired of old white and black men thinking they can do whatever they want to do to women and think–the women should be thankful for the attention. It’s time to put a stop to this often overlooked stain on our society and clean it up. We can and we must–by hearing the whole of the matter and not just brushing situations aside.

Until we can put aside tribalistic bonds and see people, we need to create a new environment in Congress, led by women who (hopefully) will not abuse their positions, but do all they can to uphold the constitution and in caring about their constituents. So, in this brief commentary (by my usual standards), I encourage women all over the United States to get involved so we can take care of the business of governing, not fighting accusations of sexual misconduct.

And let’s face one simple fact: none of us is perfect for there are no perfect human beings walking the face of the earth. However, if we wait for a perfect person to elect them, our society will be without government. So, let’s do the best we can to elect the best available for the benefit of all in America!

We Must Intercede!

We Must Intercede!

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time. And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a true and faithful teacher of the Gentiles. Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing. 1 Timothy 2:1-8 NIV

What does it mean to intercede on behalf of others? We seek God  or act on their behalf when it appears they are incapable of doing the right thing on their own.

Interventions are an act of love and concern for an individual or people who are headed in the wrong direction. Family interventions are needed with loved ones who succumb to addiction or other negative behaviors and in some cases, interventions are needed in workplaces where those in authority fail to see how their actions affect the whole in a negative way.

Since we have an idiot in the White House–who is incapable of rational, logical thinking–we must intercede–praying for him, his family and the entire administration who has succumbed to cult mentality and will not rein him in.

We pray against the lying that is so pervasive from those in the White House, they won’t even admit when they’re lying. They have succumbed to the thought that “alternative facts” are actual facts and not another label for “lies.”

We pray against their plots to conspire against America and all Americans with their blatantly obvious rhetoric and behavior that leads to the erosion of our Constitution and eventual destruction of our democracy.

We pray against all those white nationalists who seek to divide and further destroy humanity with their hatred and bigotry.

We pray against all the dictators and authoritarians and their hold on any US citizen.

We pray against all liars who deliberately attempt to deceive the nations and any group of people by use of false propaganda in whatever form it takes.

We pray that all people everywhere, will open their eyes and see truth, empty their hearts of hatred and allow love to fill the void, and close their ears to lies perpetuated by those who have decided to join the devil’s army and hear only truth from the Spirit of God, residing within.

It is time to stop complaining about all the stuff occurring in our politics, cities, capitol and all over the world and do something. The one thing we can do stop all the stupidity is to recognize and receive truth when we hear and to encourage all to get out and vote–vote for those who have demonstrated by their actions that they are humanitarians, capable of loving and concern for others and not just the folks who “claim to be Christians, but we see no Christ in them.”

It is up to us who know how Christ lived as an example to us to do what He would do. It is up to us to care for the poor, needy, and vulnerable and to fight for their rights. It is up to us to call out lies whenever and wherever we hear or see them. Those of us who know truth, should never be afraid to speak truth and expose the lies and the liars.

Therefore, by now all with a functioning brain should understand that we have a liar-in-chief in the White House and all of his spokespersons lie when they regurgitate his lies. There are no alternative facts to spin the lies–they lie–pure and simple and every time they lie or promote false propaganda, truth is easily and quickly revealed.

Mainstream Media–CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WAPO, ABC, NBC are not fake news. Fox News–is not a news network, but a licensed entertainment network that posits opinions and biased opinions that promote hatred and bigotry. Hillary Clinton is not a pedophile or trafficking in child sex rings–no matter how many times someone says it. Nor is she or Bob Mueller in the least responsible or culpable for the Uranium One situation. That has been debunked over and over again and only the foolish and gullible still believe and promote it.

Time magazine did not call trump to say anything to him about being the Person of the Year, trump was not responsible for the release of the basketball players in China, and he is under investigation–no matter how they try to spin it. More importantly, trump doesn’t have a clue as to what he’s supposed to be doing and those who believe he does–need much prayer and revelations of truth. He is not a savior of the world, nor is he a great negotiator. He is a greedy, self-involved corrupt person (not a real man) who is only interested in making himself richer by violating the Constitution. His rhetoric with North Korea is a distraction to keep his base from paying attention the Mueller investigation which is closing in on all those involved in the 2016 election rigging. Of course those who believe, “God chose trump to be president,” will never believe the truth because if they did, they’d have to admit–they were wrong and actually lied.

Republicans in the House clamoring for an investigation are merely providing a distraction to the gullible in hopes they will not pay attention to the unfolding and revealing revelations about their “savior and his minions.”

It is time–no past time–that we who know Christ–have a relationship with Him and desire to only please Him and not people to act like we know Him and stop spreading the lies and convoluted propaganda that will eventually lead to greater loss of lives than we have recently seen. Hate destroys–love builds. When hatred is the driving force for policy decisions that affect all people, we must root out the hatred and plant love so we will not allow the decimation of millions of people.

In the coming elections–we must not allow predatory, hateful people to sit in positions of authority, making decisions for those they have violated in one way or another. We must vote for those who want to help others. Republicans–at this point–have only shown their love of a fetus–not a life after it gets here with their support of sexual predators, loss of access to healthcare and the very basics of humanitarian need. They should called themselves–“fetus-lovers” since they have no plans to assist lives once they are born. They are not the true representatives of Christ and though they loathe Democrats–Democrats have proven they have more love in their hearts for others than the “fetus-lovers.”

I stand in the gap–interceding for all–for those who hearts need comforting from the loss of loved ones through military actions or madmen assaults because our law-makers care more about the NRA’s donations than they do people; I’m interceding on behalf of all those whose income is less than $75K a year–that they’ll get involved and called their representatives in Congress and tell them, “Not one penny for the rich if the poor don’t get more.” I’m interceding on behalf of all who love truth and will not perpetuate a lie that they’ll find the courage and boldness to call out all who blatantly lie to make themselves something they are not.

Go vote and elect those who care about all people–not just the white people or the straight people or the “fetus-lovers” but ALL people.  This is why we must intercede with prayers and our votes!

Where Is God In All This?

Where Is God In All This?

Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Hebrews 13:1-6 NIV

We are indeed living in perilous times when those who claim to be Christians–followers and imitators of Christ–prefer an accused child molester over a man who defends the rights of vulnerable simply because the man is a Democrat. Oh how the Republican party has demonized Democrats simply because the Democrats tend to live more Christ-like than they do.

How can I say that? Let me count the ways:

Democrats are pro-choice. God is pro-choice. He never demands we worship Him; He gives us choice in all we do, never forcing us to do anything and certainly never forcing His will upon us.

Democrats believe in the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. They believe people have a right to say what they want, but they don’t have to agree with them. Democrats also believe that every person has a right to worship however they want to worship. Democrats do not believe in promoting hatred and bigotry, but in promoting love and respect of all.

Though there are flawed imperfect people in all walks of life, Democrats will not knowingly choose a sexual molester or predator to govern in any aspect of public office.

Democrats will always choose to support policies that undergird and protect the rights of the poor and needy and vulnerable.

So, where is God is the lives of Republicans who have become so repugnant in the eyes of the world? The jury is still out. The party who once claimed to be the party of morality has sunk beneath the scales of demonic influence into the abyss of hatefulness and bigotry, promoting and applauding those who are morally deficient as evidenced by their behavior and rhetoric; their lack of compassion towards the poor and needy and otherwise vulnerable, and their greed in support of all corrupt, wealthy donors.

Their inability to establish policies that benefit the poor over the rich is staggering in light of the fact that Jesus said we are to take care of the poor and needy, feed the hungry, visit those in prisons, clothe and house those who are homeless. We don’t see that trait in any of the policies promoted by Republicans in their attempt to shut out millions from having affordable healthcare, allow the repeal of regulations that protect consumers, and now overtaxing the poor in order to appease their rich donors. That’s not the love of Christ reigning in their hearts, it’s greed for power and money, which will only lead to their downfall.

Did we forget that our bodies are the temple where the Holy Spirit dwells? If Christ lives within us and we allow Him to guide us, how can anyone ignore the suffering of others–in any capacity? How can we say, “He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives in me,” if we applaud behaviors that are not like Christ?

I guess the real question is not, “Where is God in all this,” but where are we in our walk with Christ that we sit back and say nothing, and some actually approve and applaud, those who are commit acts against children or assault women, indiscriminately? What’s wrong with those who “wear the label” of Christianity? How can we expect anyone to believe we know Christ, when we do the exact opposite of what He would do?

I’m praying for understanding and direction in how to address all the issues that confront us and become a challenge for us to live as Christ would have us live. We are certainly on the wrong path if we think God is going to ignore what we’re doing–in His name!

I readily admit that neither I nor others can control what any individual does, but I can support and promote policies to protect the innocent and deny the perpetrators access to serve in public offices. My stance on public policy will always be, “first do no harm” as I prepare to serve in the White House–governing for all Everyday Americans. God will once again, reign in the Oval Office as befitting the King of Glory, not me.

 

Only Republicans Matter Now?

Only Republicans Matter Now?

Has anyone noticed that Americans have all become Republicans? You missed that phenomena, too, huh? Pay attention to the rhetoric that comes from the GOP, the White House Administration and of course, trump. They really believe they have a mandate from America because of the election rigging and illegitimate win — across the board for Republicans.

Almost every sentence starts with — “Americans have given us a mandate” or a version thereof. “He’s being given a mandate,” Kellyanne Conway told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day.” “And that mandate is going to be somewhat different than what we’ve had, it’s a repudiation of some of the things we’ve had.” [Hate reigns in the hearts of trump and his enablers]

KATIE PAVLICH: The Republicans now have a mandate. We have a Republican in the White House. We have a Republican-controlled Senate and Republican-controlled House. We have had divided government for a long time and as Paul Ryan said today they have a lot of good ideas on the table that they’ve been trying to get through that were obstructed by Harry Reid for years that they now are going to be able to push through as a result of this election. [Fox News, Special Report, 11/9/16] [Isn’t our democracy supposed to represent all the people and the “divided government” acting as a check and balance so all benefit? When one group makes all the decisions without any consideration for others — it becomes a dictatorship, not a democracy.]

Now, it would appear that because of the election rigging and the electoral college bribery, that Republicans are determined to only govern — Republicans. None of their policies or agendas have taken into consideration the rest of America — just what 62M angry, misled, and hate-filled people decided (many of whom now regret their decision). A mandate — normally entails what the majority have determined — but the 2016 election was anything but normal and it would appear that we are far from becoming normal again, any time soon.

But let’s look at the actual facts (numbers don’t lie unless manipulated by those who skipped their math classes).

american-mandate

Now, let’s not forget that Hillary won the popular vote by 3M votes — and because trump hates to lose — he’s sold a bill of goods to the gullible by promoting the notion that the 3M votes were cast by illegal immigrants — a fact that has been debunked, repeatedly but the gullible will believe a lie much quicker than the truth when it suits them. And the gullible — those who will swallow anything because they don’t like to research information and have limited critical thinking skills — keep promoting all the lies and false propaganda engineered by the Russian regime with an assist from the GOP. Their win — is not a legitimate win and will be proven so in the very near future, but that won’t stop them from destroying America — under the pretense of doing what’s best for Republicans.

Let me see, now. Do Republicans not want to save the planet for their descendants? Do Republicans care about not having clean water to drink or are they okay with the toxic run-off from coal mines and industrial complexes poisoning the water? Do they care about the rollback of consumer protections and rampant repeal of regulations that keep not just Republican children safe, but all children who eat produce covered and embedded with chemicals that will eventually, lead to their deaths? Do Republicans not understand the ramifications and eventual consequences of a nuclear war? Do they not know that radioactive fall-out won’t ask for a voter’s registration to determine who it will kill or where victims will be located? Are all Republicans part of the 1% that tax cuts will benefit or is it just the 200 families that will hold all the wealth and the rest of us — well, we’ll eventually die out and who will be left to work for the 200 families? Will they plant gardens, work in factories, man phone-lines, create all they need to subsist or are they setting themselves up to die as well?

No matter how much money or wealth a person may have, if the land (and water) is toxic and nothing grows — all will perish. I wonder — have they given this a lot of thought or are their actions — merely reactions to their hatred of Obama? Considering the fact that Republicans were supposed to be the party of “family values/morals” it is difficult to believe any of them are Christians since they have no love for anyone other than themselves. Apparently, they do not understand that Christ promoted love for all, not just the Republicans. I don’t think they’ve given this the time needed to come to a logical conclusion. Whatever happens to the Democrats they hate so much, will also impact the Republicans since we all live on the same planet in the same country.

Getting back to this so-called mandate — if we consider a mandate being what the majority want — the mandate would be for Hillary to be in the Oval Office, making decisions for the benefit of all Americans — not just the Democrat party. Therein lies the real difference — Democrats govern for all the people, Republicans — just them and those who praise them and support them. Some how, that doesn’t sound like a true democracy; it sounds more like an authoritarian take-over in which only one group — the Republicans in this situation — govern for just their group and the rest of us — “be damned.”

The prevailing attitude of the GOP leadership and trump makes it even more important that Americans Vote Blue in the coming elections so All Americans will have a chance to survive. Democrats — in recent history — have been the only party that considers what is best for all Americans and not just other Democrats or those who support them. Therefore, we must use our collective voting rights to turn this situation around so all can sleep at night — knowing there will be a new morning in which we can all enjoy living in America.

America Votes

Raising The Standards

We need to put in a place — an elected person who will govern for all — reaching across the aisle of Congress to make the best decisions for all and who is not afraid of a challenge, and has a heart filled with love, not hate. We can make it happen, by remembering that we are all in this thing called life — together. The decisions made that affect one group, will affect all Americans. Let’s do this — We can raise the standards for all Americans and do it with love, not hate guiding all we do!

 

Stability

Stability

I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name forever and ever. Everyday I will praise you and extol your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts. They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty–and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They tell of the power of your awesome works–and I will proclaim your great deeds. They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness. Psalm 145:1-7 NIV

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. James 1:5-8 NIV

What we need in the world now, more than ever is stability–stable-minded leaders–in order to effect peace and security. Without stability–especially in operating in the minds of world leaders–the entire world is at a place where few feel secure.

The founding fathers of our nation in America–sought to create an environment of stability when they composed the Constitution. Now, the right-wing tea-partiers want to destabilize our democracy by ignoring the Constitutional framework of how government works. When we allow any one person to violate the Constitution, we put at risk the entire Constitution being violated by those who think they are above the law.

We see this continuing line of thought on a regular basis in the WH–where all we have are enablers of an unfit, unstable, double-minded illegitimate person who was installed by Russia. The GOP–supposedly the party of family values and morals have been derelict in their responsibility by first allowing the nomination and they continue to abrogate responsibility by not “keeping him in check” which is their job–the purpose for which they were elected.

Until we all get involved–Republicans, Independents and Democrats to stop ignoring the fact–we have a mental midget in charge, we’re never going to see or have stability in this country again.

The white supremacist was elected by other white supremacists and then he appointed another racist bigot as Attorney General and we can see it in all he does in the position, then he appointed a bigot as Education Secretary and thieves and liars in other positions–which should not be a surprise since he is a thief and liar–totally corrupt and morally bankrupt.

What do the rest of us need to do? We need to encourage those pseudo-Christians who are worshiping trump to read their bible with understanding–worshiping him is idolatry; and we need to remind them–daily–God did not choose trump to be president, they did–along with the rest of the racists and haters in this country.

There will be no peace without the acceptance that America was not founded on the bible; was not built on white European values, but on the backs of slave labor and ignorance of the context of the bible. White Europeans came to this land already inhabited by the Indigenous Natives and stole the land from them. They additionally complicated matters by importing Africans as slaves–free labor to build the infrastructure and stabilize their economic power–corruption at its best.

If America is not willing to accept the facts and reality of its existence, we will continue to have turmoil and chaos because of those who think they are superior to others. As long as we have leadership constantly flip-flopping on policy (if there is policy) we will be the laughingstock of the world. Without stable-minded leadership, there will be no stability in the country. It is time for us to wake up and see the danger we’re all in from NK, Russia, and China because we allowed an idiot to reside in the White House.

We can change things and begin the journey to stabilize by changing who we elect. In 2018, we need to flip the House (from Red to Blue) and in 2020, those Senators who are too old to see reality as it exists, not as they want it, need to retire.

We are a nation of diverse cultures and we need to protect that right by remembering–every person of European ancestry was an immigrant and had the Natives not been as helpful as they were, they would surely not be a majority voice in this country. We need stability and the only way that will happen is when the rights of all Americans are acknowledged and protected. If we continue to treat those who come into this land as though they were less worthy of equal treatment, we may incur the wrath of God for not obeying His Word about how we should treat, “foreigners” as outlined in Deuteronomy.

I’m Mary Hall-Rayford and I am not ashamed to admit–this country is headed in the wrong direction and if we don’t change course soon, we will cease to exist as the founding fathers envisioned.
