Hello to you, all you interesting, adventurous and wonderful people who made it here to my site! Hope the Autumn season is treating you well, your silos are stocked full, and your hearts ready to engage a new year.
I surely have had my share of hardships this past year, and am willing to bet that many of you have as well. Our world is undergoing a period of extreme transformation. Basic concepts of what life and liberty are really about are being challenged. Upon the descent of the “Sun God” into the “Abyss”, I am finding much of what we take for granted, now up in the air!
Religious freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of love, rights of citizens/ and non citizens, world trade, social security, freedom to demonstrate, freedom online, climate change, affordable healthcare, and so much more, are rolling across a gridded sky, leaving little but questions, when most of us are praying for answers!
Once more, election day passes on, leaving us with the promise of a great future, new beginnings and the like, and it becomes a passing wave for us to surf or drown in.
I want to make it clear that I did not vote for Donald Trump! The reason why, is that he has never as much as insinuated that my freedom, and the freedoms of all others, will be held sacred, and kept off the chopping block. He has appealed to the fears of a much abused world! This does not sway me, as I refuse to let fear run my life. I will stand for freedom above all else. That is something that can’t be bought, sold, or killed.
Now that Mr. Trump is president-elect of the United States Of America, I would love to make clear to him what I will, and won’t tolerate in my world. I’m asking all of you to do the same.
1. Freedom Of Religion- un-negotiable! Americans not only are entitled, but will be entitled, to worship as they wish, or even not at all. If not on board, leave America!
2. Freedom Of Speech- Americans not only are entitled, but will be entitled, to speak their minds. If not onboard, leave America!
3. Freedom Of Love- No book or set of boundaries should incline or probate love.
4. Freedom Of Choice
Ideally, unwanted pregnancies will not exist. It should not be a choice of the irresponsible to bear children, in an ideal world. It will happen, and when it does, we have some serious considerations to make. Firstly, our world is dangerously over populated. Many of these unwanted children will become slaves to dire, and life long hardship. Is this a gift we wish to leave future generations?
Let me state that I stress rigid responsibility over abortion any day, but stand for a woman’s choice to terminate unwanted pregnancy.
Even more do I stand for huge life benefits to couples and singles who refuse to bear children.
We are entering a new experience of what it means to be alive today!
As is always the case, there are wonderful places to go, and terrific people to be. We have to understand though, that our scenario is different from that of previous centuries. The world has changed, and we are changing too. Overpopulation is killing the environment that humanity needs to survive. What are we thinking about that? What can we do? Personally, I do not approve of abortion, but do support pro-choice.
On a final note to this last thought, I challenge all Americans to prevent unwanted pregnancies! The ultimate being to end the need to end life, and make it profitable!
People who choose to dedicate their lives to the refinement of their professions for the greater good of society, and refrain from procreation, should be entitled to lifelong free housing and medical care. This investment would cut millions of dollars from welfare, and place that remaining, where it is most needed and deserved.
5. Respect for the environment
Planet Earth is our home. I will accept no leader as my Commander In Chief, who fails to recognize the importance of preserving our environment! If this is less than a top concern for them, I can give them no respect!
It’s really quite simple. If our house is falling down, it really doesn’t matter if we close the windows and lock the doors! Denial won’t cut it either. If our environment becomes unlivable, it won’t matter what we believe to be the case. Truth will speak through our failing health and lifestyles. This is not what I wish for the country I love, or myself.
6. What’s up with your choice of friends, Mr. Trump?
You will appoint a white supremacist as your top White House strategist , and a racist in charge of enforcing the Voting Rights Act? Is this true Donald? If so, expect no love from me! I will never accept anyone as my president who has ties to the Nazi party, or the KKK! Simple enough for you?
It is my view that the best way to evaluate the heart of an individual is to watch what comes out of the woodwork around them. Words can be deceptive, and promises easily broken, but the company of the speaker tells few lies.
Just a year ago, talking with a friend of mine about a recent KKK rally, I told him that the only reason it doesn’t enrage me more, is I don’t fear it. I thought of the KKK as a once very powerful and evil organization that has become a pitiful anachronism loved by ignorant goofballs and nutcases. I sort of felt sorry for them and their backward ways. Today, my feeling has changed. I believe them to be a dangerous terrorist threat right within our country, and would love it, Mr. Trump, if you would build a wall around them!
Bigotry is not an American value! With you, or without you, it never will be. I would like to see you, Mr. President Elect, begin building that wall now!
Today’s political landscape easily mirrors our current bedbug epidemic. Creepy, hostile, weird stuff is emerging from the woodwork everywhere! Do they belong to you Mr. Trump?
7. As President of the United States Of America, you are not a king, nor a dictator, but rather the representative of the American people. Show me who you represent.
8.What do you claim to offer the world in general, I mean, we all live in it. Right?
9. How do you plan to direct foreign policy in a way that brings light and freedom to all it touches? Do you care about our allies and the civilians in supposed hostile lands?
10. Now, the biggest thing on my mind is this……….
Your campaign slogan is, “Make America Great Again”. I ask you when we stopped being great? Yes, we have our problems, but all the same, I believe we are great right now! Don’t point fingers, Mr. trump, just offer your integrity, and know that because you are being heard at all, your country is great. Can you make it better? I hope so.
Just the day after election, a friend of mine showed me a quite interesting post. I can’t remember the exact wording, so I will paraphrase. ” Will Donald Trump be a good president? I hope so! People who wish him to fail are like passengers of a plane hoping the pilot will crash it!”
I hope you will be a good president,
and I hope that everyone in this country, who loves it and respects freedom over all, will be benefited by your election. Honestly, I have my doubts, but would love to be proven wrong.
Do you stand with U.S., Mr. Trump?
