This observer has spent decades of an American lifetime watching the American 'Democratic' cause be trashed, soiled, dragged though the mud and whatever other means of human desecration that can be civilly described in a public forum such as this and to this day, none of makes any rational sense when attempting to apply the rationale of the founders, since today, virtually the entirety of the academia that seeks to pontificate some alternate means of applying governance to a people born to the greatest national entity since Israel demonstrate continually; they have no clue. The last generation that did, is now generally passe.
Considereing Ms. Tlaib's credentials, and they are to be considered objectively, lead to a differing sense of why she does what she does: her background lends to her perpsective. Unfortunately, since her institutionalized education sought to take advantage of her heritage, American democracy was never meant to be appreciated, but taken advantage of. It is the progressive way. Democracy today is defined institutionally differently than what the founders intended; but everyone knows that, don't they?
Well, maybe they do not.
There is no mystery to Ms. Tlaib's posturing and why she and her colleagues are set out and castigated for their apparent anti-American stance in all things: they do not understand why America even exists. They cannot in their current state of mind, for it would require a complete re-education to reach way deep into the real American psyche, something that even natural born Americans have been distracted from by infiltrations of anti-American sentiments going way, way back, before the sinking of the Titanic. Many do not realize how politically traumatic the loss of the Titanic was and the effects that are residual to American governance today.
So, what question really needs to be asked of Ms. Tlaib if she is seriously convinced of her preconceived notions of forcing America to 'change its spots' and concede to her rationale that America is inherently evil.
Those are not rose coloured glasses: they are transitional and whatever shade they need to be in order to view Islamically driven perceptions of humanity as its relates to America's attitudes towards her heritage and why she takes up that cause with the fervor demonstrated, the question that really needs to be asked is one she will never be able to answer. She does not know how.
