The Trouble with American Politics - Lincoln had it Right

Reader comment on item: "Republican Mob" Was Once an Oxymoron, Now It's a Reality

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jan 15, 2021 at 14:52

In this day and post-American age, the diversity that everyone rages about and say America needs more of has had its bubble burst; there are definitely more people that have contentious issues with the nearly former President Trump; however the psychology/psychiatry necessary to examine the heads of all the political combatants would cost so much more than the monies already spent salving the consciences of the legislative contemptibles' attempts to spend their way out of the embarrassing circumstances they themselves caused.

And again, 'we the people,' a political entity now in paused circumstances themselves, are forced to foot the bill. All well and good until a true accounting from the budget office reveals there is no more real money available: more than 20% of the taxpaying public of the ravaged middle class are already tapped out.

Now to the contention that the mob was 'republican' is a contrived convenience; that true conservatism had been appropriated in republican forums way too long ago, long before William Jefferson Clinton forged a new direction in American politics, allowing American politics to be perverted and corrupted in both parties, to the bereavement and deficiency of moral and legal deficits now encumbering 'we the people's' representation.

They say we need more diversity; seriously? Is there any country in this misdirected world that has a greater accumulation of nationalities than America? If there is, it is a very small grouping. It is not in the variety of nationalities that America is deficient in, it is the jaded and polemic assessment of politicos making those differences that has been appropriated by the compromising and arbitrary political establishment in which, with such inherent diversity, political myopia and arbitrary contentiousness has made merchandise of such things and still want to make middle America pay for it; and they have.

Now, many cast aspersions and all may feel they have a right to do; but none have got it right in laying the blame on President Trump, upon whom they said they did not want him to play in their political reindeer games. That's right; they used him as their blame toy for their failures to do right for the American people and allowed the leftist AND extremist alt-right marauders who have no lost love towards the Constitution OR the American constituency.

None of them truly appreciated who President Trump was (that's a different observation made elsewhere); neither did they realize what they did in pretending to be concerned about America's future when President Trump's actions proved out his own concerns. This blatant act of falsely blaming President Trump for the Mob rule actually demonstrates the folly they are allowing them to be fooled into thinking things are going to get better. Even the future 46th American Chief Administrative Executive let out a Freudian slip, saying as well, they are not going to get better; and he should know, after sitting at the right hand of the 44th American Chief Administrative Executive.

This is what America is being forced to concede to and no one will like the outcome; none; like Lincoln said, not everyone will be happy, not even the perpetrators that will be bringing in the new American misery; and President Trump cannot be blamed for that, even though they might try for lack of conscience sake.
