When voting rights are being limited by the Right Wing coupled with an open disdain for anyone that could possibly consider voting against their policies, then those rights must be limited. Except what exactly on this Fourth of July is the Republican vision for America? It clearly does not include looking to the future by improving the daily lives of all, upgrading our infrastructure and utility grids or working towards effectively dealing with the obvious onset of the destruction of the Earth humans have been recklessly encouraging with our collective wasteful and careless treatment of our planet.
We have an entire political party with power whose sole purpose is to ensure their power is forever while forgetting that most Americans disagree with most of their positions. America is no where near the goal JFK put to us "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country!" In 2021, it's about a cult of personality embracing the biggest con-man to ever hold the highest office in the world. After his resounding defeat at the polls, certain media outlets continue to push narratives that are dedicated solely to eroding the publics' trust in the governmental institutions our Founders, Framers and predecessors worked so tirelessly to establish and fortify.
So this July 4, let's celebrate the past while embracing our future - one where Republicans are appreciated and understood for only standing for - corruption, greed, dishonestly, and above all else, Hypocrisy. As Harry D. Truman once wrote; "Those who want the Government to regulate matters of the mind and spirit are like men who are so afraid of being murdered that they commit suicide to avoid assassination." We must stand guard to ensure our American way of life is not only sustained, but expanded. If that means the expulsion of the modern day GOP, then so be it. We must all ensure our democracy survives Trumpism and the idiocracy it has spread in our nation. Have a great week.
