The trumpeter was never meant to be president. He was never ready for this office – he was brought in by those who want to see the United States of North America brought down – to become weak. We are a war-mongering country because of those who would continue to get wealthy off the war machine. Eisenhower made this clear, and since then, many, many have done their best to make this true.
We are not a country that was intended from the beginning. It was meant to be open to all those who wanted a chance in life, a place of freedom and equality for all. This seems to mean just white people in these past 100 years. I keep hearing white people saying this country was meant only for white christians.
I suppose this has been thought over and over. First we cheated and killed the Native Americans. Then we had a civil war over slavery. I mean, who brought those black people here anyway? We put native Japanese people into concentration camps at the beginning of WW II. We want to keep Muslims out. I suppose these white christians want to kick out all the Jewish people as well. I don’t get it.
Anyway, apparently there has been success. White people from other countries, i.e., Vladimir Putin, has managed to show exactly how weak we are. He chose a man who has no idea how this country should be governed. Of course, real people also voted for him – not all votes were stolen, or hacked.
We don’t have a military any longer. No bodies to send into war, since the white supremacists don’t believe they have to go. The trumpeter took five deferments during Vietnam – he was a coward. He is still a coward. And he has no clue how to defend the honest people of this country against the white christians who make up most of these hate groups.
It all started because of a statue? Well, perhaps it is time we take down every statue in this country because they are all going to offend someone. I don’t want to take down any of the memorials to military who have fought in foreign wars. I don’t want to take down any memorials to any president. But individual statues – whether I appreciated the person or not – should probably all come down.
Just don’t put up any more statues to anyone. There will be a big picture in the capitol rotunda of Donald Trump; I don’t believe it belongs there, but he was elected by at least some of the people, even if it was not a legitimate election.
As for me, I was born a white woman into a christian family. I am not a christian, however. I could not believe in any messiah who christians think is approving their actions.
I cannot change the fact that I am “white” (though I have little white in my skin), but I have not and never will involve myself in anything that says I am superior to anyone else. Because I am just a human being, just like every other human being. Except there are many I do not think like.
I have no faith in the USA. It will fall; it will never exist as long as the European countries. It will never exist as long as Australia, or China, or Japan. I hope I am dead long before that happens. Kim Jong Un seems to be rethinking about throwing missiles at Guam. I suspect he knows he simply has to wait because we will destroy ourselves from within.
