The Great ( ) Hope

(I was gonna put WHITE in there, but didn’t wish to mislead!)

Well, it seems this Nation is indeed separated into two three factions:  Those who support the President-elect, and those who hate him.  (And those for whom the jury remains out).

I don’t think our long national nightmare is yet over…

Remember FOUR EIGHT years ago, when the Electoral College put a Black man into the White House?  And many on the Right referred to him as The Black Jesus?  Because the Left viewed him as the solution to all things ‘wrong’ with the Country.

And, after all, he wasn’t George W. Bush (or his weak carbon copy John McCain?  Or Mitt Romney?)

Hope and Change?  Fundamentally transform?  (Pick one).

Well, now (if we’re thinking racially), we’ve replaced a Black man with a White man.  (Not that other Black candidates weren’t possible – Condi Rice?  Mia Love?  Clarence Thomas?…)

If we’re NOT thinking racially, Mr. Trump is a populist.

He doesn’t appear to have read recent Supreme Court decisions, or, the U.S. Constitution, however. (wanting to ban flag burning, for example – reprehensible speech though it may be).

And Gitmo will remain, as will massive surveillance.  As will issues with guns, illegal immigration, terrorism and civil liberties.  Pending court decisions on the next administration’s actions.

And, I think many folks are harkening back to the days of Norman Rockwell.  (The 40’s, 50’s?)  Burying their heads in the sand, because we no longer have a Leftist President.  Of whatever color.

Those of us who are concerned with civil liberties need to continue our watch into the next administration.

Lest we become blindsided colorblind.

  1. Yep, never take your eyes off the people in power. They very rarely loosen their grip on it.
    (funny how many of the laws, restrictions or bans that us little people have put on us, the PTB are exempt from and I don’t mean ha, ha funny)

    What do those in power want> More!
    Like Kirk calling Scotty for maximum power. Except it isn’t dilithium crystals their using, it’s our rights that get consumed.

  2. Power is so corrosive, and so addicting, that we must never EVER take our eyes off of those who have it. For all the evils of the world begin with one person wanting power over another.
