Lincoln, Stop Spinning in Your Grave!

This government of the people has almost  perished from the earth”

“The question is, how did a malignant narcissist psychopath [Trump] become president– not just president but a horrific monster who is intentionally destroying the protections that have made Americans and America safe from the predations of the worst corporations and his fellow billionaire psychopaths? And what should we do about it(?)” said Rob Kall, OpEdNews. 6/23/2018

I believe there is a problem of greater and more immediate concern. The people of the United States, as well as people in other countries throughout the world,  deserve to know that this psychopath will not, and will not be allowed to, start a nuclear war. He is obsessed with his own image, and could, in a peak of rage, use an atomic weapon to prove the grandiose image he maintains, to the world. His chaotic White House along with his love of the expression, “Your Fired!”, are known and understood by Americans and the world. His knee-jerk reactions exemplified by his tweets, and his approach to anyone who disagrees with him about anything, makes his control over the largest collection of nukes in the world, give us pause.

Can any citizen of the United States of America say:

That we have any semblance of: Justice and accountability? Domestic Tranquility? Provide for Common Defense against any Real and Present Danger? Our government is promoting General Welfare and securing the Blessings of Liberty to Ourselves and our Posterity?

Famous words that mean so little now:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Wake up America. If you were to spend one-hundredth of the minutes you currently spend looking at your cell phone, you might see that your rights, as a citizen of this beautiful country, have all but disappeared.

I have heard that there was concern about Nixon doing something with the nukes during the Watergate situation. America and the entire world deserve to know that there is some plan to control Trump’s access to what he refers to as the “Largest button in the world.” I would urge everyone, in any country, to insist that such controls are put in place.

This is not a political situation. I challenge any Republican, or a member of any other political group, to say that Trump is a thoughtful and rational human being.

Taking a longer view of the Presidency, it’s interesting to note that members of the Supreme Court are required to have a significant background in Constitutional Law before they can be considered. They also must be approved by Congress before they can be installed. Why do we not have similar requirements for any Presidential  Candidate? Those men or women who aspire to the highest office should be required to prove their ability to govern. We have a pool of Governors and Senators that have a record of public service that should fit this approach.

This assumes that the Supreme Court reverses its ridiculous position that each Corporation is an individual person.

Such an approach might resolve, somewhat, the tendency to BUY a candidate who will happily serve his master’s plan. As of now, our system encourages men and women to search out a monied patron saint who will pay for the exorbitant cost of running for any office.
