You broke it, you bought it...
Throughout the campaign and through the last six months of this new presidency, I keep thinking,
can it get any worse?
Can there be anything else that can shock me?
Is there no line that won't be crossed?
How long can this go on?
What I have finally come to realize is that there is no bottom to this.
There is no line.
I used to believe that the party which is now in complete control was still true to America first.
Country before party,
That at some point they would say this is enough, this is too low.
But sadly I have been proven wrong every time.
There is no country first mentality.
Patriotism is just a sound bite.
But what they are so callously throwing away isn't theirs to discard.
The dignity of our country and the presidency.
Our reputation in the world.
That does not belong to them.
It belongs to all of us.
We have a president who is completely absorbed in himself and what he can get out of being president.
Just like he says he's a business man.
No one ever said he was a good or ethical business man.
And this is what happens when you treat the country like a business.
There are no out of bounds of decency and respect, it's just business.
And if you are going to run a country that way then lets face it you can strip it, bankrupt it, and even
sell it off to the highest bidder.
Its just business.
These lessons are not being lost on children who are watching these events as they unfold.
A cold, calloused disregard for anything that does not somehow benefit those in power is to be seen
somehow as strength when it is nothing more than selfish and petty indifference.
If we chose to sit idly by and allow those in power to break the basic ideals of this country without
holding them accountable, then can we be surprised and shocked by more and more incidents like this?
And more importantly, are we all okay with that?
Have a wonderful weekend!
