Eliminating The Trump Oligarchy - And Response (4)

Wednesday, March 6, 2019

When there is no intention of truth from our current President, the liar must be directly confronted - Congress has the oversight responsibilities. A major challenge has been placed before them.

 

The Trump right wing cult should consider taking a guarded position concerning the President's love affair with eccentric boastful lying while ignoring the actual “facts.” One should take into account; the President is entitled to his own personal opinion, but not his own personal facts.  It is fundamental; fact from opinion must be separated.

 

Trump's “trumped-up” (excuse the pun) stories are harmfully unreliable; leading to speech that constantly spews forth divisiveness, along the way resulting in political pandemonium in our government. Unquestionably, Trump will go down in history as our worst president.

 

Nevertheless, when exercising oversight the Democratic leadership should use extreme caution as they deal with the President's transgressions, which if not handled acceptably, could lead to an unconstructive voter political backlash. Let’s not carry out a prolonged investigative process that extends, like some politicians would like, well into 2020. Call a halt to the current ongoing political dog and pony show.

 

Research suggests there is strong support building for action against the current display of presidential dishonesty and malice. Accordingly, the overriding goal should be his removal from office, and then move forward with government work consistent with the rules of our democracy.

 

We must eliminate and in no way ever again tolerate the smell of aristocracy rule. Nevertheless, if Republicans and Democrats continue to engage in hostility and rage, producing unhealthy divided government; it may be time for a carefully planned third party to surface. However, for now let’s work together to remove the existing problem – Trump operating an oligarchy.

Mr. Jones,

First of all, your writing style is simply masterful in use of word and structure.  Your opinion implies that you are not a party follower.  I adore independent articles by nonpolitical party followers. Simply put, true independents are far more politically savvy.  In my view, there are left and right leaning independents, and I have never met a perfectly in the middle independent.   


It is so exhausting reading the words of these ridicules political parties that wish to collect us all as their little voting machines and follow their ideology.  The parties remind me of sports team with fan clubs that follow them regardless. The Republican and Democrat parties are grossly detached from what is really needed, limited government as in the model created by the founders of our nation.

I enjoyed reading your take on President Trump that I disagree with.    

I do wish that you reconsider your notion that a political divide in our country unhealthy, by revisiting the history of our founder’s rationale of why our Nation’s model relies on a zealous division of thoughts and ideology.   Study the founders from the bringing, you are smart.

Our county’s model relies on and is designed for opposing views, debate and division is healthy, not unhealthy as you have suggested.

Again, I enjoyed your well written letter.

The Trump Derangement Syndrome is strong with this one.  I suppose you want to turn our country into a socialist utopia like Finland or Venezuela as well?  How about we confiscate all the guns (I'm sure people will readily surrender them). 

 

Free college?  Free healthcare? No fossil fuels? I believe the winning Democratic platform for 2020 says something about energy from fairy dust and flying around on unicorns instead of airplanes.

 

I could explain why everything coming out of the left wing Democratic party is stupid, but you wouldn't understand anyway.

The author has a well written op, I too enjoyed reading it although I too disagree with just about everything that was said.  I'm leaning towards being an independent, I'm thinking I must be that because I try to listen to both sides with an open mind.  Dad always told us six kids there are three sides to a story, yours, mine and of course...the real truth.  You can't get there without listening, you most definitely can't get there without doing your own research etc.

 

Sometimes I hear both a Republican and a Democrat speak and my head goes nuts when I hear the news and their "spin" on the comments I heard with my own two ears.  Maybe some voters are like that, they listen to their trusted anchor at 7 p.m. and believe what he/she heard must be what was said.  In my mind the country has changed from being led by the media to making their own determination, the "country" meaning those that don't protest, don't have sit ins, aren't on TV 24/7, believe in faith hope and charity and have been quiet for too long...the silent majority.

I respect the office of the President and while President Trump is like no other he just possibly could be like some we've respected but spoke so differently that we didn't quite understand what the heck they were saying.  If (and that's a mighty big if) you want a president who has a clean slate all the way back to the womb...good luck with that.  Once our dearly beloved politicians make it to Congress something happens to them, they have a major brain fade on why they were elected and most become rich beyond belief.  Wonder why that is....

Some become disenchanted with the meat grinder and quit on us early i.e. Senator Gowdy, they decide there's a better place for them outside the beltway.  That becomes our loss, the people's loss.  Some fight with their last breath to change how they make sausage in D.C., that would be President Trump.  If you're working three jobs while some are letting your tax dollars support them you may also want to see change.  If you're tired of co-pays while some pay zero, you may want to see change.  If you're tired of paying high dollar for groceries while some spend $80 on valentine candy with their EBT cards...you may want to see change.  If you're tired of your tax dollars being recklessly spent you too may want some change in the process.  

That "change" is going to have folks firing off ludicrous accusations as fast as they can think them up.  Those are the folks that are perfectly happy with the status quo, they don't want change because that may take something away from their huge retirement fund built on sand and promises they have no intention of keeping.  

There is no way possible to convince anyone to hold their water and do their due diligence before believing every accusation that floats out of D.C. but I can say this, if we the American people don't get our act together there won't be a good result and it can't end well.  Enough of the fighting, the he said/she said, do your research and take a hard look at the economy, the job situation, the changes the Farm Bill made, talk to a farmer, talk to a steel worker, talk to folks who never thought they'd work again before throwing mud and ignoring progress.  It's there and no matter how hard you try to explain it away it's being accomplished with or without you.

When there was no intention of truth from our former President, the liar must be directly confronted - Congress has the oversight responsibilities. A major challenge was placed before them.


The left wing cult should consider taking a guarded position concerning the former administration’s love affair with eccentric boastful lying while ignoring the actual facts. One should take into account; the President was entitled to his own personal opinion, but not his own personal facts.  It is fundamental; fact from opinion must be separated.

 

Obama's trumped-up stories were harmfully unreliable; leading to speech that constantly spews forth divisiveness, along the way resulting in political pandemonium in our government. Unquestionably, Obama has gone down in history as our worst president.

Nevertheless, when exercising oversight the Democratic leadership should have used extreme caution as they dealt with the President's transgressions, which was not handled acceptably, and lead to a constructive voter response. They did not carry out a prolonged investigative process that extended, like some politicians would have liked, well into 2016. They called a halt to the ongoing political dog and pony show.

Research suggested there was strong support building for action against the display of presidential dishonesty and malice. Accordingly, the overriding goal was his removal from office, and then moved forward with government work consistent with the rules of our republic.

We eliminated and in no way should ever again tolerate the smell of aristocracy rule. Nevertheless, if Republicans and Democrats continue to engage in hostility and rage, producing unhealthy divided government; it may be time for a carefully planned third party to surface. However, for now, at least we worked together to remove the problem – Obama operating an oligarchy.

See what I did there?
