I refuse to let go of the grace, compassion, humble eight years of the Obama presidency. The first family made our country look good nationally and internationally. I will not embrace the hate, the narcissistic rhetoric and behavior that replaces President Obama.
I resent that the pe thinks America is not already great. Only in a great country could such a sham occur. And the next time I hear how pe won by a landslide, well, it isn’t true. Yes, won the electoral college but the public mandate was not this ugly person. Ugly yes. Mean-spirited, crude, and no sense of decency. I refuse though to be embarrassed by his actions or those of his supporters. They do not represent me and I will continue to carry on the goodness in my heart.
Congress. They have done nothing but drag their feet for 8 years. They have given themselves raises; have life-long health care and income; they have a comfy life. Some Congress people are driven by a moral compass of compassion, honesty, and really do work for the American people. But hearing vpe say that the new pe will put “America first” makes me laugh through tears. There is nothing in past behavior of pe or republicans or congress (generally) that leads me to believe that. That is fake news!
I will fight the fights I know; I expect others to fight the fights they know. We will not just preserve, but succeed in preventing total annihilation of the America I am proud of, the America that is just, good, and moral in terms of the Golden Rule.
But it will be a fight. I will honor President Obama, his family, and the real people who believe in the good first. Oh, and I expect evidence, irrefutable evidence for all decisions and proclamations.
Yes, we can!
