The New America???

If you want to get a picture of the “new America” and the “new Americans” go to a Trump Rally.    The large numbers of supporters he has for his ideas of what America should be and the actions they are willing to take to support these ideas are telling us something.    He has attracted large numbers of meaner, rougher, less civil supporters who are not interested  in social justice, rule by law, the homeless, the immigrant—-or really any human life but their own.   They are only into themselves and their wants and desires.   They think so and they have the right to think and do whatever they wish in their minds, without regard for consequences for the general welfare of the country.  

It’s an America that will carpet-bomb enemies with no regard for loss of innocent lives. 

It’s an America that will put other ethnic and religious groups into ghettos so they can be patrolled and controlled.

It’s an America with no regard for the poor, the needy, the mentally and emotionally challenged, the homeless men, women and children.  It’s an America where children and the elderly will die for lack of nutrition and adequate medical care.    It’s a selfish and self-centered America  where “compassion” drops out of our vocabulary.

It’s an America where the rich get richer and the middle class keeps getting poorer until finally there will be only two classes—the very rich and the poverty class.

It’s an America where Medicare and Medicaid and Health Care wll be privatized and run for profit  and the bottom net profit line on the profit sheet will replace good and adequate medical care.   And you will have to pay for that care, so the old, those in poverty, homeless people, children, and the elderly will just have to  “die” and as Scrooge said in a Christmas Carol—“get rid of the excess population”

We are going down this road and your vote for any of the GOP Presidential candidates will speed our progress toward the America described above.

America will no longer be what we sing of in our National Anthem—“the land of the free and the home of the brave.”   Instead, it will be “the land of power and control and the home of the fearful.”

Are we going to let this happen to our beautiful country??!!

  1. I hope we don’t allow this to happen, Pastor Jim. Unfortunately, the seeds were sown long before Trump and his ilk.

    • You are right, Erica—it was happening long before Trump came on the scene. Whenever people begin to think of “us” and “them” instead of “we the people of the United States” we are on the road to what we see developing now— a divided, fearful nation where “me” strives to win over “you”. I hope it is reversible also! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this!
