After the Wall

Smoke and Mirrors

Over the millennia, wars have fought to resist the wacky notions of arrogant, small minded, greedy, selfish, bigoted, and racist individuals.

In those instances, the followers were found to be duped or conned by charisma, and their own wishful thinking, greed and arrogance. Laws were created to further mandate expected public behavior.  These requirements gave force to proposed goals and gave “validity/legitimacy” to claims that had no basis in fact.

Reality was literally manufactured.

Many people stayed silent even in light of the absurdity of it all and succumbed to threats, peer pressure and legislated reprisals.

Surely no one was ignorant even if some were innocent.

In this time, 2016, there must be many people who, deep down inside, wonder about some of the arguably strange and implausible things stated by our projected Republican candidate.

Adding sexist to the list of qualities should not further his case.

A quote from the candidate that perhaps says it all: “One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace. Good people don’t go into government.”

I see no indication he will be the first exception to that.

This is NOT the time to stay silent about those concerns.

After the wall is built will be too late.
