“All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.” -Matthew 23:3
President-Elect Trump (aka/“The Donald”) promised much. To date, how closely do his deeds adhere to his words? To some, it appears that his rodomontade is devolving more than evolving. Consider the following examples:
As noted in the previous posting below, his appointments smack of a sprinkle of anti-Republican establishment here and a dash of pro-Republican establishment there.
If he has not reneged on his promise to pursue the investigation of Hillary with vigor, he has come close; characterizing her lying, philandering husband (who essentially sold military, technological secrets to the Chinese for a pittance) and “Crooked Hillary” herself as “good people” whom The Donald does not want to hurt.
Whereas he continues to claim that he will build the promised wall — maybe now partially fencing (Did the Great Wall of China contain fencing?) — he has retreated from his promise to deport all, not some but all, illegal aliens to deporting only those with histories of violent felonies.
Despite proclaiming his unwavering commitment to the sanctity of life of unborn children still in the womb, he has withdrawn any opposition to the sociologically-based, unconstitutional decision of the Supreme Court to allow abortion essentially at any stage of gestation.
To the dismay of those who believe in the liturgy of Judaism, Christianity, and Mohammedanism and of anyone who views homosexuality as a threat to the familial foundation of almost all civilizations, he condoned the biologically nonsensical and sociologically-based, unconstitutional decision of the Supreme Court to allow homosexuals to marry legally.
Meanwhile, a most important policy wanders in the wilderness; this is, delivery of medical care — otherwise known by the governmental euphemism intentionally demeaning to physicians as “healthcare”. Medicare alone is bankrupting the nation. Any society that places the welfare of its old higher than that of its young dooms itself to disaster. The Donald is dooming this nation to economic disaster. So-called Health Savings Accounts are not an answer; they represent country-club Republicanism at its worst. So-called Block-Grants to the States only will shift political control from politicians in the District of Corruption to politicians in State-capitals. An affordable, scientifically-based, scientifically-directed alternative offering universal care from a competitive private sector — an alternative acknowledged by the insurance industry with nominations for two, national awards — has existed for more than 20-years, apparently to continue to be ignored by The Donald, who reportedly refrains from reading books, and by his administration.
Excerpt from the Prologue of the semi-fictional novel, Inescapable Consequences —
“America has achieved peace with security. Her currency has become sound and stable; her economy, prosperous and dynamic. The federal government operates lawfully in accordance with the United States Constitution and fiscally without debt. Within expected limits, Americans control their own destiny — political, economic, and social.
Politicians seeking federal office generally say what they mean and mean what they say. The presidential, congressional, and judicial smoke-and-mirrors of the past, designed to blind the electorate, have dissipated.”
Detractors have characterized The Donald as thin-skinned with a longing to be loved. Be that characterization valid, expect him to do that which provokes the least disapproval and earns the most approval. Perhaps, he will prove his detractors wrong. Then again . . . .
“Hope springs eternal in the human breast; Man never is, but always To be Blest.” -Alexander Pope (1688-1744)
