Do we honor the law or not? Or have we just come to the point that we don’t even bother to find a loophole and just blatantly defy the law? Is this the new norm? The past three years has been an attempt to blur the lines of reality. And then attempt to reform a new reality.
Was it premeditated? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe it has just morphed into that. Let me explain. I don’t think DC expected the likes of Trump and vice versa.
Conflict escalated after that first meeting between Trump and the intelligence directors. I am not a fly in the room but from the little bit I know the meeting ended with more misconceptions than understanding. Trump took offense believing that his legitimacy was being challenged. His reaction was interpreted as suspicious. Neither one took the time to understand each other. Action to reaction. Reaction to new action.
Trump could not just let it go. He had to fight it creating more and more concern… Essentially he created the drama. The intel group reacted in the only way they knew. They investigate shit. So, you have two sides that do what they do. And we are where we are.
Who suffers the most here? Simple, we do. You thought I was going to say Trump or Comey? We haven’t begun to feel the bite of this administration. And if he gets another four years??? I don’t want to even speculate. OMG!!!
“We in America do not have government by the majority— we have government by the majority who participate… All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson spoke those word over two hundred years ago. It was true then and it hold true more so today.
