Mind and Destiny

“I make no pretension to patriotism. So long as my voice can be heard ... I will hold up America to the lightning scorn of moral indignation. In doing this, I shall feel myself discharging the duty of a true patriot; for he is a lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins. It is righteousness that exalteth a nation while sin is a reproach to any people.”- Frederick Douglass

Winning Requires

It’ll take a lot more than large crowds gathering to protest President Trump inauguration across the world for the Democratic Party to again determine the direction that America should be heading.  We must focus on winning more seats in state legislatures and governorships.  In less than 2 years a united Democratic Party needs to win more seats in Congress.

Trump owns congressional Republicans, and soon will have a majority on the Supreme Court.  He knows that Republicans won’t oppose him, because Vladimir Putin and Russian spies not only conducted cyber attacks on documents from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, but also has information from hacking the Republican campaign committee, and Trump.  Putin is a very cruel and cunning dictator, who’ll keep that information to extort favors from Trump and congressional Republicans.

An inquiry led by Robert Owen a senior British judge found that Putin’s former KGB bodyguard Andrei Lugovoy carried out the killing of ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko with radioactive polonium-210 in London in 2006.  An operation, that Putin himself would have had to approve.  Litvinenko, 43, was an outspoken critic of Putin.  He had fled to Britain six years to the day before he was poisoned.

Trump’s behavior indicates that he’s an egotistical, vindictive, vengeful, pathological liar, with a narcissistic personality disorder.  He can’t be depended upon to serve all Americans, but as the Republican Party’s nominee, he received 62,979,879 votes.  I’m very surprised that so many intelligent voters across America continue to support an unworthy political party that has demonstrated poor judgement and a lack of compassion since the late 1920’s.

The Republican policy of less government and tax cuts for the very wealthy wouldn’t have ended the Great Depression, and today it won’t solve the issue of unequal distribution of wealth and income.
