The Corruption of the United States

IT began on a historically hot June day on June 16th, 2015. Donald J. Trump formally announced his candidacy on June 16, 2015, with a campaign rally and speech at Trump Tower in New York City. This began the deterioration of the American fabric, all done from creating division, racism, bigotry, and hate speech. Creation of their own making, the GOP brought forward an ideal Frankenstein to demolish the country from within its own boundaries. This same GOP stood trembling with each word that Donald has spewed against specific religions, races, sexual orientation, neighboring countries, century-old allies, potential political rivals, and even the praise of North Korea, Russia’s Putin, and China.

Time after time, we have heard, we saw, we viewed the current President praise the hateful, the evil and the corrupt over good and moral. Then only to deny such display the next day, if not the next hour, and hopes that everyone forgets reality for his deranged rants, lies, and corrupt actions. Our military had bounties placed on them from the Russian President Putin, and Donald J. Trump was informed. He then denied it, then changed the story to not credible, and then that somehow the Democrats created this false narrative. While other countries and governments have collaborated the findings. We have watched as Donald plays videos from white supremacist and hate groups, and falsely accuses Immigrants and minorities as the problem.

A Pandemic hit the world like a tornado and Trump denies its potential impact on the United States, and lies to the citizens, that it will disappear quickly. Over 150,000 Deaths and millions affected, there is a major increase in the spread of this ever-expanding illness. The European Union will not allow Americans in Europe, Canada has stopped any United States citizen from traveling to its shores and boundaries. 20 million jobs have been lost, people are losing their homes, and people are going hungry. Donald Trump sits there and plans his next naive rally to convince the ignorant to reality and loosely intelligent that follow him to go and get the virus and spread it even further and quicker around the country.

The GOP is weak and incapable of mustering the strength to end the death of a nation, and the Democrats sit back and wish upon a star and are unwilling to fight for the best to run against this human monster. So, it is now time for hard choices, and hard battles are never won without hard losses and sacrifice. Throughout our history, we see America is at its best when it confronts hard truths and asks difficult questions of itself. Progress is made through truth — not fear and lies. Time for a change.

We see a constant battle between minorities and the White Population, which is a minority as well since there are so many wonderful immigrants from all around the world that bring wonders and greatness to America. Racism in the workplace will not end until we take reports of discrimination seriously, even when it involves seemingly progressive allies. It is not enough to speak against racism, but we as a people to continue to be a better society must live a life without color, religion, or sexual preference when we look at people. We must believe in those words: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.”

America sees hate of the unknown and does nothing to become aware of the here and now. We see the young feeling entitled, the elderly feeling abused, and the children praying that soon they can leave their oppressive parents. We see the rich being greedier, the poor become more destitute, and the hungry becoming more a serious issue as the GOP caters to the rich, ignores the impoverished, and believes that the hungry and ill deserve what they do not get in assistance.

America has lost its greatness over the last three and a half years, and until America as a whole sees reality, there will always be another psychotic Hitler style leader waiting in the shadows to falsely promise golden nuggets, while actually planning a coup d’état. Naivety has grown to an uncontrollable level and is as dangerous to America as the COVID-19 is.
