In this age of real and imaginary extremes,
conspiracies and lockstep mindsets, where too many have become
self-hypnotically vulnerable to potential electoral crucifixion, so nailed by
our self-decapitating federal government: no time for sneers, smirks nor
unmasking for, I told you so.
Long before Tim Russert unintentionally
parted The Red Sea of America’s Red and Blue states, exposing the myth
of our, united we stand, what impressed me most about Charlton Heston’s
pre-NRA Moses response to a leader who thought himself a god, was: an
imperious leader can easily drown his loyal followers in their belief in false
prophets, and destroy a nation and civilization far senior to America.
Our 244-year venture has been compromised
by the malignancy of Too Big to Fail latching onto America’s Marshall
Plan and ACA cells, by humans ignoring, To whom much is
given, much is required, who washed their hands of justice and
equality for all, long ago, savoring their abandonment of planetary
Nonetheless, from its inception, America’s
democratic ideals were the golden calf for millions. Through feast
and famine, Civil and world wars, assassinations and deceptions, Depressions
and Recessions, our international standing was, the good: one
person one vote, the bad: our over-consumerism at the expense of
the less fortunate, until the ugly American: an unapologetic,
inept and apathetic fake, was lifted up from the glitter of fool’s gold
by the chess masters of greed for power and dominion over earth and all life
What if our 2020 elections are a revelation
precipice, allowing us to look into the promised potential of either America’s
self-destruction or self-renewal? Will we see the hardened heart of
Ramses II or a new Moses?
Will we vote to be remembered for our
majestic monuments to slave owners, catatonic enslavement to Black Friday
purchased devices or for our artistic humanity and indiscriminate human
For months America’s president kept the
tragic potential of COVID-19 secret from, Proud Boys and Never
Trumpers, Republicans and Independents, Democrats and Undecided – from
those who worship the ground he walks upon and those who wish he were six feet
Why? So, he can stay out of jail,
saved by bone spurs, pretending ill-gotten gain would make him in the image of
Khizr Kahn’s heroic son, patriots like Senator John McCain or veterans Hunter
and Beau Biden?
In 2016 didn’t we put away childish
things: Lady Liberty’s promise, FDR’s New Deal and John
Kennedy’s eagle-like Cuban Missile Crisis strategy: extending the perfect
balance between arrows and olive branches to prevent global nuclear
If so, is there enough retrievable, Ask
what you can do for your country, to elect civility, unity and the sanity
needed to save our Constitution from the realization of a founding fear: a
tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come to power on the shoulders of
misinformation and emotional mob rule?
Although armed with more information than
he cared to share, Trump risked the lives of his Base by holding large indoor,
and outdoor, events with supporters who, at his bidding, attended without masks
or following social distancing guidelines.
Be assured I do not wish Donald Trump dead,
for any reason, including, but not limited to: Mike Pence actually
believes that his religious beliefs make him superior to people who don’t
think, look or act as he does.
Tragically however, even in the throes of
possible death, Trump enablers fear sharing truth: a White House source
tells reporters, the president’s vitals over last twenty-hours were very concerning,
and the next forty-eight hours will be critical – we’re still not on a clear
path to full recovery, while Walter Reed military Medical spokespersons
claim, the president has been fever free for over twenty-four hours, we
remain cautiously optimistic, but he’s doing great.
Clearly, it is difficult to trust what we’re told about, or by Donald

especially when our 45th has intentionally endangered American
Security with national instability, repeatedly.
