This is where we are heading and all the tuff-talk and weapon-waving in the world is not effective or useful.
It makes us look sillier than ever. We’re also headed in this direction:
The American Choice must choose to never again be casual nor shallow about why we support the election of specific leaders.
Personally, although having a concern for the circumstances in America and across its borders that draw those willing to work cheaply to this country, immigration reform is not any predominant reason for casting a ballot in support of the immigration-reforming candidate.
Personally, I am concerned about public morality in an ethical sense of the highest good of all concerned. However, moralizing the population based on literal-minded and shallow childish Christian theology is the least of my priorities. We do not need a born-again religious stampeding President or Congress.
Whoever presides must have demonstrated experiential knowledge and not just an ability to speak about American foreign policy and military matters in a thoughtful and intelligent manner; not blustering grandstanding.
We absolutely must benefit from the wisdom of those who have served out there where there has been action.
… someone who is not just a solitary muscle-flexor, saber-rattling cheap-talk personality with god talk, pretend patriotism and no substance
We need someone who has seen blood flow for needless reasons and regretted it.
If the leader attempting to pose as presidential material cannot convince me of that kind of wisdom connected to avoiding an imperialism that ignores, demeans and totally devalues the lives of non-Americans everywhere else, then my vote goes elsewhere.
Criminal leadership may have sat in a presidential chair but America has never made a collective choice for those absolutely horrific and shameful values. Our leaders can never again be given an electoral approval without passing the muster of social and global responsibility and accountability.
Our sitting president will go down in history as the absolute poorest American Presidency ever
… As the American politician most deserving of impeachment proceedings
… ever in our history.
