Don’t make yourself, feel better, by blaming the present occupant of the White House, for the polarizing tone, greater degree of prejudice and hatred, and the way, it seems, one segment of America, is pitted against another! In fact, the real question, to consider, and truly, be concerned about, is why, so many Americans, seem to blindly, follow President Donald Trump, and continue to do so, despite his behavior, rhetoric, and continuing lies! When will they TIRE of this type of behavior, and the continuous, lies (according to one, well – respected, political fact – checker, he has told, over 12,000 lies, and/ or, misstatements, since, he was elected? What are the potential dangers of these oversights, and, why, does it seem, not to matter, to so many of them? With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why it matters.
1. Tense; treatment; time – tested; timely; trust/ truth: Don’t Americans need, and deserve, the truth from those, they elect, with the hope, to be effectively, served and represented? If you can’t trust these individuals, doesn’t that harm, the nature of our democracy? How healthy is it, when millions, wake – up, daily, tense, and nervous, about what, might occur, that day? Don’t we deserve better treatment? How are we represented, when time – tested, principles, ideas, and concepts, ignored? When issues, like, paying keen attention to Climate Change, and environmental concerns, and safety, are ignored, isn’t that unfair to future generations?
2. Integrity; innovate; imagine; insights; improvements: Don’t we deserve, and shouldn’t we demand, absolute, genuine integrity, from those we elect? Slogans, such as, Make America Great Again, looking backward, instead of forward, and wouldn’t we all, be better off, if they would innovate, in a relevant, sustainable manner, and imagine things, being, as they should, and may be? Take a keen look at the possibilities, and develop, the insights to be more responsible voters, and citizens! When improvements are indicated, wouldn’t it make sense, to seek the best path, instead of procrastinating, and denying?
3. Relevant; responsive; reality; rational; realistic: Who benefits, when a leader, replaces, realistic ideas and solutions, with empty rhetoric, and promises? Rather than being responsive to the needs of the nation and the world, it doesn’t help anyone, when lies, and misstatements, replace rational ideas, and viable solutions!
4. Empathy; emphasis; energy/ energize; enrich: We have witnessed, a period, unlike any, in recent memory, where, it appears, to many, the President of the United States seems to lack genuine empathy, and is primarily motivated by his personal/ political agenda, and/ or, self – interest! We need leadership, which places its emphasis, and energy, on energizing others, and enriching society, in – general!
What does it say about our society, when so many, seem to, not yet, TIRE of the apparent lies, and actions, of this administration? Wake up, America, before it’s too late!
