DEMOCRACY UNDER TRUMP

In this tumultuous political climate I find both parties irrelevant and obsolete They do not speak to me and my families’ needs Neither do these elites know the suffering we go through Day after day we look for respite from the turmoil of war Wrought against us and human kind Their arguments for war aren't compelling, they don't persuade and are not in the best interest of the American people I cannot drink the Kool-Aid they serve in golden goblets I cannot and never would One speaker speaks with a deceptive facade The other in hate and pseudo outrageous promises We, the people, are in mental turmoil, confused in crises The world is in calamity and chaos and they don't care They speak in tongues foreign to the human heart and spirit Jeopardizing our national integrity The Constitution is clear and doesn’t need to be re-interpreted The Bill of Rights doesn’t have to be changed, just followed The world is in serious flux, hazardously in danger Our Constitution and Bill of Rights are in danger of becoming irrelevant The people in charge have jeopardized our national integrity Forgetting the basic thread that ties us all Humanity! The welfare of people is what life is about Integrity is at its root, the heart continues to beat Our life is not a valuable Royal Delft Blue Vase filled with fragrant gardenias Nor the life the elite would dare to endure We are not part of their extravagant life style, but We do live in the last bastion of what freedom Democracy is striving to survive but is quickly slipping away Being vigilant and smart is to take the predators to task Looters seek positions in government to enhance their status and wealth People should know America's Freedom is for everyone The forever struggling Eagle of Freedom will rise from this abyss again.

For sure. Enough with these politicians! We need a good Statesman. But most want to change...and not simply follow the perfection of our Founding Fathers. It is Lesser Ego over Greater Substance--and Godless philosophy and behavior over Christ love and presence. Very well said. Having said that, Trump is not nearly bad as portrayed by press. He is not perfect I know, nor am I. But he does seem to believe in the US Constitution, and the sanctity and moral responsibility of our Supreme Court.
