I was going to share my world, but then this rant was racing around inside my head, screaming to be let out. So, fair warning: this is political. This is my viewpoint.
If the President can go out into the street and shoot someone and get away with it, why can’t I? No, he hasn’t done this, but he said he could -so why can’t I?
If the President can lie and call people names and be supported while doing this, why can’t I? If he doesn’t care about how people feel, why should I?
If the President says it’s okay to pollute our waters and our air, why can’t I? Why can’t I just run my sewage into that stream behind my house, that feeds into a river that feeds into an ocean? Why can’t I? Why can’t I just ignore my community’s clean air rules, if it’s okay for corporations to do so?
If the Senate can work with the White House on an impeachment trial, why won’t the prosecutor work with me, the defendant, when I’m on trial? Why won’t the prosecutor do it my way? If it’s good enough for our government, shouldn’t it be good enough for me?
If a political party can make up its own rules and call a criminal action not a criminal action, why can’t I?
If our government can ignore integrity, morality, honesty – why can’t I? Oh yeah – because I couldn’t live with myself if I did that. Because I’m not willing to sell my soul to gain power, or keep power, or be given a lifetime of more than adequate income.
So – how do those people in our government live with themselves?
