There was a time when the phrase “honest politician” was liberally used to describe candidates for office. Perhaps the phrase was true or a sound bite yet it appears to be laughable today. What is considered “modern” politics along with the advent of National newspapers to now mass media of all types indicates there are no honest politicians per se, merely degrees of honesty. We have become inured to the truth and that plays into the game plan of the political “influencers” as their objective is to cover their true goal with mystical utterances (lies) until they appear to be true. Once a title or label is affixed to someone, an action, activity or something repeatedly, it becomes public domain and ersatz believable. This is the baseline of our current administration and his loyal party and public supporters. The truth is the victim and voters are not far behind.

If and when modern politics moves out of the realm of schoolyard antics and name-calling we may just have a Congress worthy of the title. It is a given that we have a miscreant as President, that will not change until the next election (if we are lucky). Until that time his dishonest administration aided and abetted by a self-serving GOP will continue to tread heavily on the voters of America. Many who approve or follow TOTUS and his minions fail to realize the essence of the statement” what affects one affects all”. There is no upside to this administration. We are now at a point where we have groups who have a narrow view of what is correct and use that view to inform their actions in electing representatives who follow their line to the detriment of all others. We are slowly losing the real America to single-minded entities reminiscent of the religious extremists we have fought on the Asian continent and entities, not unlike the “oligarchs” we hear about in other parts of the world. We are constantly bombarded by the tweets of an Uninformed leader whose actions and words border on the manic. These activities are supported by a political faction that uses this mania to cover their nefarious deeds in service only to themselves and their allies. In effect, we (VOTERS) are “being handled”. Some actions by this administration and its abettors are proper and correct but the execution is terrible. There is no diplomacy in this administration primarily because TOTUS has the idea that as President he is the smartest person in the room. A quick look at his actions (tweets) tells a different story. The fact that long-serving diplomats are ignored, fired or have resigned presents a different picture. Our Allies have taken a hands off attitude with TOTUS as they fully understand his propensity for rash, unreasoned actions, and outbursts via twitter. All of his actions have a long term influence which will take years to correct whether you believe it or not. It is well to remember that the truth remains the same whereas lies eternally shift.
