Enough Is Enough

With the recent revelation that Donald J. Trump ignored intel documenting that Putin placed bounties on the heads on American soldiers in Afghanistan, all REAL Americans must act. We must act to get America back on the path to being great again. We must eliminate Trump and his band of Trussians.

One of the major reasons that Trump has not been removed from office, either forcibly or otherwise, despite his mind-boggling collection of crimes, is that he is a master of circumlocution. And much of the fragmented left buys into his maelstrom, charging down numerous paths, chasing demons, some real, and some highly exaggerated or misunderstood.

The monuments of Confederate generals should come down. The South lost the revolution and the monuments are a reminder of slavery. But are we now going to take it further, and waste focus and energy, to include statues of Washington, Jefferson and Roosevelt?

The REAL issues of the American Civil War were complex. The economy was a driving factor. The Northern states, centers of manufacturing, were competing with England for raw materials, including cotton, that were produced in the Southern states. Slavery was a component of the economy in the harvesting of the raw materials. One might ponder what role Eli Whitney's invention of the cotton gin played in the decision making process of Northern policy makers. And many on the Left forget that America was founded by men who were treasonous. America was a British colony at the time of our inception.

These periods of American history are complicated. Trump is not. Trump and his tribe of conmen, thieves, and imbeciles have been destroying the fabric of the great American experiment since he took office. We must stop him. We must choose carefully the rabbit holes we pursue.
