‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself. (2.2.38-49)

This Excerpt from Shakespeare speaks of a name being a cover for what the name covers. What would we call the current Leader(?) of the free world? A person who had no real desire to be President and is unwilling to learn the job. The actions of this person has apparently a single purpose and that is to be adored. That desire has lead us to a tweet storm, campaign style rallies with no subjects, abrogation of the duties of the office and obvious support of Racism in America. It is bad enough that under our (American) system of government,  Racists have a public voice but now they feel empowered by the our so called leader. Our neer do well Congress is largely absent in this issue as they are surreptitiously eroding our rights to suit the money people who support them. Our Congress has done nothing to maintain the progress made over the years and that lack of  attention to detail has allowed the rise of Donald Trump. The staunch supporters of Trump have failed to understand that their issues should be laid at the feet of their elected officials as they have been in office for a lot longer than Donnie.  If we  as voters do not pay close attention to what the Congress is doing, we will be doomed to have  years of poor governance followed by an economic collapse. We should remember that no changes occur in a vacuum and ignoring what our elected officials do out of the public view is more important than what is presented publicly.
