I’ve never been particularly good at the art of the rant but here goes.
We have a duly elected President attempting to get his act together and run an administration. Mr. Trump was not my candidate and I would willingly have joined any vocal loyal opposition formed to hold his feet to the fire, legally and constitutionally, as he worked to fulfill the duties of his office.
However many others have taken the view that he is their enemy and must be defeated at every turn.
First a couple of definitions:
Sedition. Incitement or discontent or rebellion against a government or any action, especially in speech or writing promoting such discontent or rebellion.
Treason. The offense of acting to overthrow one’s government. A violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or state (nation).
There is strong evidence that a coalition of people, both inside and outside the government, aided and abetted by no fewer than four of the five living ex-presidents, are actively attempting to thwart the current President and by some lights, to stage a coup d’etat.
This is the United States of America, not some third world banana republic and we simply cannot allow this to happen. Such action is contrary to everything we stand for, contrary to what millions of our young people have fought, bled and died for on battlefields both foreign and domestic.
If you are an American with any sense of what this nation has endured in its 240 year march to this point in history then you would not countenance such an affront, not to the people currently elected, but to the system that has been our mainstay over the centuries.
And to Mr. Trump, sir, respectfully, you are in power and have not only the law but the right on your side. Sedition and treasonous acts are taking place. Stop making nice with people who want your head on a pike. Convene whatever forums or panels necessary and root them out. Prosecute them, all of them, and if found guilty in a court of law, send them to prison, without regard to who they are or what positions they hold or former positions they might have held. No one is above the law.
I worry not about President Trump, he will continue to thrive no matter what the outcome. I worry about my country and whether it can survive the acts of those traitors as they seek to destroy the rule of law for whatever selfish agenda they are pursuing.
We must stand up for America and allow our system of laws and governance to work as intended or our nation will perish.
