The actions that took place in our nations Capitol yesterday is absolutely, beyond question, disgusting. They were, and are, as disgusting as riots that took place throughout our great nation over the past several months. The past several months, including yesterday, have resulted in lives being taken, businesses destroyed, vandalism justified, accountability not pursued, law enforcement disrespected, our history, and most importantly our Constitution disrespected, along with the self-proclaimed superior media talking heads being completely useless (journalism no longer exists), celebrity types lecturing, with the sport community rudely failing to honor our flag and national anthem. On top of all this chaos are our leaders (I use the term loosely) in an act of childish behavior tear up the State of the Union Speech on national TV for all the world to see, leaders (again using the term loosely) who continually lock down their state economies, destroying a means of financial survival for many, as well as our President being less than forceful in his condemnation of yesterday's actions. Sadly, our President followed the path of those in the political world, on both sides of the aisle, who did not strongly condemn the riots of the past several months. Yes, as I see it, there is plenty of "blame" to go around. Do not make the mistake of thinking others alone caused these embarrassing situations to occur. We all contributed. What are we, as citizens, going do to contribute to the healing process before us? Are we going to be tolerant of those who disagree with us? Are we going to continue following the political "puff" presented during election campaigns? Are we going to take time for research before voting? Are we going to continue to accept the incompetence of media and press? We are citizens of a country many throughout the world consider to be the light at the end of a dark tunnel. It is unfortunate, but our past actions, along with the incoming administration, do not seem to offer progress other than giant leaps into socialism. I sincerely hope we change our ways before government completely takes over our daily lives - even more so than they already have.
Thank you for sharing your well written thoughts, everything you touched on is absolutely correct. Unfortunately I don't believe our country will ever be the same again. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer had called for a peaceful transition of power and shortly after the President announced the transition of power would be peaceful, Pelosi and Schumer ran to the corrupt liberal media outlets to call for President Trump to be removed from office immediately. Either by impeachment, ( articles are currently being written ) or by using the 25th amendment. That's real peaceful isn't it? After everything these sick, demented, Democrats have done to our President, they still have so much hate within them they cannot control themselves from trying to ruin Donald Trump with only 2 weeks left in his term, they want to make sure he cannot return in 2024, they are scared to death of Trump. As long as these corrupt Democrat leaders are in our government, there will never be any healing. I'm disgusted as are millions of Americans because we love our country and don't want to see if destroyed by a bunch of ignorant, power hungry dictators who could care less about our country or its people. You watch and see what's going to happen, those promises they made to the fools who voted for them will never be fulfilled. What will happen is they will do whatever is necessary to ensure the Democratic party will remain in power for decades and the government will have total control over the 327 million Americans in our country plus the 25 million illegal immigrants. The cowardly Republican party is a disgrace and the ones who turned their backs on the President must be ousted. They too only care about themselves, if they would have filed lawsuits before the election to stop voting by mail and the other illegal actions against our constitution, things would be different now. Face it, our country is full of corruption and not even the President could stop it. The country most of us know and love so much will never be the same again. The corrupt politicians, big tech companies, billionaires, the media, Hollywood, sports figures, huge corporations and yes, other countries, are responsible for what's happening in America right now. Democrats are making sure the voice and the power of the American people will no longer matter or make a difference in how our country is ran. What's sad is, we let it happen. Joe Biden had a few hundred people show up the 4 or 5 times he spoke at venues. President Trump had thousands upon thousands of people turn out for over 20 rallies and we're supposed to believe that Joe Biden won the election fair and square? Lmao, I don't think so. We need to call our state representatives and demand that there be official investigations into the 2020 election. You would think the Democratic party would welcome this if they truly believe they won the election? Nope, they are fighting it in the courts. What do they have to hide? Pray for our country....
