"Boy, your spine is as crooked as a politician!"

There have been many quotes regarding "the measure of a man" but they all pretty much tell the same story and advise or enlighten us as to an individual’s measure. Their honor, integrity, there ethical standing in the world and their moral conviction... or not.  We see in our political representatives that measure each and every day and it is truly a monumental disappointment. Our elected officials lack so much, honor, integrity, just simple plain honesty. The only "men" we generally see that show any measure of the best human qualities are women! Most of the men in government show a measure which displays the least desirable qualities in humanity. Dr. King's quote referred to the measure of a man is not where one stands in moments of comfort and convenience but during times of challenge and controversy. That is the true test or measure.

We see, everyday it seems that test, that measure in times of challenge and controversy a lack of the best qualities and the display of the worst in all too many of our politicians and government officials.

repub symbolIt is that simple. This administration and most of those representing it have failed that measure horribly. What we have seen is corruption, cowardice, avarice, greed of power and wealth.and a loathsome anti-democratic agenda veiled in egregious lies and false righteousness. This is the light, the measure that the current administration and its Republican party now paints itself with.

Where are you? Did you know there is an ongoing national emergency?  People (obviously those not like you and your friends) are desperate, struggling and in dire need.  WTF?  You don't seem to really care about ordinary working people (other than their vote)! Your rhetoric is pitiful and empty in the end - just excuses like those of small children caught in a lie or of wrong doing!

I just watched Marco Rubio on Face the Nation and he said absolutely nothing! No plan, no policy, only when he finally did address the issue itself he made vague, ambiguous generalities like his other party colleagues... nothing!  It is amazing that Republican constituents don't demand honest, actual policy and legislation from their representatives!

No Shirts, No Shoes, NO SERVICE!  How is this any different than adding to this, ... "No Masks, No Service!"

People, do you really want to base anything  on Trump's thoughts, ideas or lies?

We rely on a number of people to act honestly and fairly as our representatives in government. This is something we take for granted, but need we re-examine this faith in our individual government representation? There have always repub symbolbeen those who look to game the system, to cheat and thereby redeem some type of profitability whether monetarily or otherwise. From our elected representatives we assume a sense of fairness and honesty. In the past we’ve held these elected representatives accountable by either reelecting them in the next cycle - or not. Perhaps there must be a greater point of accountability from our elected officials since the damage they can create by breaking the trust between constituents and those that they elect can only be remedied after the fact, after any such damage is long done.

So now it is complete, the Republican Congress and Republican President are now completely devoid of humanity and now a fully authoritarian, fascist, racist, xenophobic, hate based party that has almost single handedly (the Democrats are complicit in this too) destroyed the American model of democracy. The current president fancies himself as an all-powerful, fascist, dictator who is a narcissistic sociopath, lacking empathy, void of intelligence, common sense, who compulsively lies and threatens everyone and anyone who might appear to oppose him.

In the shadow of police brutality and the ensuing protests, the crackdown on free speech and the right to assemble to protest the fascist extremism of our government we must work to return to a better democracy or risk falling into a fascist, authoritarian dictatorship.

My anger is so complete! I am angry at my government who has abandoned its citizens and a willingness or a willingness of apathy by a large enough minority to allow the perversion of our democracy and the rule of law. Government for and by the people, not "government is the problem" you ****es!  If you bought into that propaganda you helped get us to where we are today. It should be a frightening place to most people!
