Haven’t Americans promised to, do unto others as we hope they will do unto us, love thy neighbor as thyself, elevate tired and poor to Land of the Free opportunities, instead of duping devout, eviscerating electorate, and violating campaign finance laws?
Aren’t we here to preserve the love that trumps all evils, protect the race of all races, defend the right of life on earth to have an inhabitable planet – not abandon the less fortunate, re-enslave diversity nor shun those voting to marry whomever they love?
America’s Mission is not crystallizing collusion between Corporatism’s checks and racial imbalance, nor allowing Republican leaders to enable a, Night of Broken Glass, in our homeland. Our Mission is not to become what is abhorrent to our founding ideals, but rather to continue the idealist journey to fulfill individual hopes, neighborly aspirations and global peace.
Are Americans Good Samaritans, or antagonists casting the downtrodden as an invading caravan advancing upon us to steal our $200m dollar presidential payoff to hush this truth: his southern border threat, is a mirage?
Doesn’t, Home of the Brave, mean Americans symbolize the courage to transition human beings targeted by villains, from tragedy to comity? Isn’t that, America’s Raison d’etre?
Is it American to allow fear, trolls and hackers to manufacture, then exacerbate The Great Divide? Isn’t, Free Will the power to choose whether to descend into a new civil war or, cleansed from the ashes of Nixon’s Southern Strategy and Cheney’s twist on Trickle Down, ascend to a new dawn’s early light?
Thirty-three of our United States have elected more than 100 women and 75 Veterans. While there were shortfalls, worthy candidates, like Heidi Heitkamp and Leslie Cockburn both reflected and illuminated: American service that honors all in the arena – particularly nurses, teachers and women – especially all who’ve lost children to violence.
America exists as the tie that binds all to the ultimate realization of our Declaration of Independence from, Made in America tyrants – knowing our Gettysburg Address and I Have a Dream, enlist a nation now conceived as, cities, suburbs and rural households – in union.
American patriotism resists a questionable president using questionable tactics to question the legitimacy of a legally appointed Special Prosecutor, protecting Americans from those aiding and abetting America’s true adversaries.
Americans are not a welcome mat for any Bully Pulpit, nor were we born with dollar-signs in our eyes, envying a trumped family trumping common sense with the nonsense of a Trump Administration – but to forever answer the call in the eternal struggle between good and evil.
In thanksgiving, we need honor and reward First Responders and Veterans, and care for mental health caregivers, because The American Dream is more than, thoughts and prayers after mass murders – and more than confirming, what is past is prologue.
Arguably, it was not The Democratic Party that energized our 2018 Mid-Term Elections, but democratic Americans heeding the need to reconnect with our humane foundation.
- Whether our outward uniform is military, apron or overhauls; Millennial or Senior; Laundry rooms, high heels, hardhats, power suits, or classrooms
- Whether living the nightmare of oil shellacked beaches, pipelined reservations, life destroying forest fires or crumbling under the devastation of gun violence
- Because some choose to deny millions affordable health-care, to reject Climate Change truth and to profit from streaming numbness to Sandy Hook, Pulse, Las Vegas and Parkland preamble to Pittsburgh Synagogue and Thousand Oaks College Country Night – 2018 voters elected our next steps forward.
We are not here to be consumed by the hellfire of an indifferent president apathetic to what trials and tragedies befall Americans from Florida to North Dakota, and Puerto Rico to California. We are here to be the stewards of earth and the loving guardians of all life upon it.
America’s 2018 homecoming is the beginning of our new transformation: from 11 Nov 1918 – 22 Nov 1963; from LBJ/Nixon Vietnam betrayal and Trump/Pence complicity – to a House of Representatives, filled with every American hue, gender and persuasion.
We are Americans because we care to make heaven on earth for any two or three gathering in the name of human decency – asking, seeking, knocking.
