This past year in the campaign season, we have seen and heard some the nastiest rhetoric and lies possibly since the beginning of our country . To start we as voters have all been dissatisfied with what Government does, did and possibly will do. Is it possible that our own participation ( or lack of) is a cause? My opinion: it is! So many of us fail to look at or try understand how one (1) issue affects other people even if we do not live in the same states or cities. Our part has been low voting, uniformed voting and not voting. It seems that many have embraced the new President’s talking points and rhetoric. This type of speech making is as ugly as we can get (hopefully) but has no substance beyond exciting the crowd. The lie appears to be the norm and it is still going on now that the TOTUS is in place. His actions after taking the office appears to be in the vein of a school yard bully who wants what he wants with no idea of what his wants will do to all of us. Campaigns have gotten uglier each time and we (voters) have allowed it and encouraged it. My question: Were we always so ugly?  Going back to 2008, the ascension of Barack Obama gave us a small peek inside the door of racism and intolerance. During and after that campaign that door was flung open to show that we have elected officials pushing the race , religious and women’s issues. These are the same folks we have allowed to continue in office in spite of their obvious issues with how we live. If these representatives were truly working for you, we would not have the President we have today. The tacit encouragement in the rise of  “TOTUS” was in part allowed because the Congress wants what it wants and needs to validate its lack of action. The future is in flux but once settled (if at all) the result could be at the least an economic downturn, at the worst a very unstable economy across the world. The talking heads that now explain the actions of the new President are no more than snake oil salesmen with government jobs. The Dupublican Congress has jumped on the bandwagon possibly out of fear of the new President or have they?. We have only heard from the top leadership so far and only on the House side. Where does the Senate leader stand on all of this? or is he taking his usual wait and see safety net? The latest actions by TOTUS is just the beginning of the tarnishing of the American image in the world and the abrogation of American civility.
