It has been another very long spell without a post on this site. One would think I’d be writing about the victory of Donald Trump at the least but no, I haven’t been motivated to do that.
This morning however the incidents at Standing Rock have motivated me. Donald Trump will be just another footnote in the history of the USA but I feel that the incidents at Standing Rock are more important than even the election of the demagogue Trump. Republicans and Democrats will continue to fight each other and try to reverse gains the others have made each election cycle but the Native Americans have had to fight their “white man” oppressors ever since America was still a British colony.
The success of Donald Trump in the Republican primary is the direct result of eight years of the Republican hate machine. He is the incarnation of Republican ideology in its purest form without any additives or sweeteners. The Republican Party for the first time in a decade is taking a look in the mirror and realizing what they’ve become.
The Donald is a demagogue who peddles straight Republican heroin and as the country is finding out, Fox news has created incredible demand. I had thought that as a country we would be smart enough to not fall for demagoguery but I was wrong; well at least I was wrong for the Republican voting half, it remains to be seen for the overall race.
It has been eons since I last posted in the blog. With two young boys all free time is at a premium and so that only leaves the very early morning as free time. In 2016 I’ve decided to change a number of things in my life such as: shedding distractions such as Facebook and unnecessary apps; focusing things most important to me such as family, working out, reading and writing; increased learning as well as meditation.
The American public is tired of the Republican Clown Train (see Rolling Stone article below.) It’s time to go full on Crazy Train people – the ultimate and final destination of American democracy!!! Let’s exercise our full potential people!
