For all the fear right now concerning the Trump presidency, many haven’t paid attention to the past five presidents that came before him. When we look at the legislation implemented by these men, had we been watching closely and holding them to the highest accountability, it could be argued that people would have been just as fearful, if not more, than people are right now. Two of the most deadly bills passed, to me, were the Patriot Act and Homeland Security Act. We didn’t question any of these bills that have more of a direct effect on our lives than the actual person in office. We didn’t question them because we didn’t question the person and we didn’t question the person because they presented themselves to be sane and rational. Unlike Trump, who appears to be a loose cannon.
So if Trump is that loose cannon that many believe him to be then you can blame the last five presidents, whom the people refused to question, scrutinize, or hold accountable. Blame them for setting the plate up for Trump. I personally think it was intentional, planned like this all along, but let’s say it wasn’t. Let’s say that these presidents had the best intentions when signing these bills into law. I only mentioned two but there were many more. We must have gotten pretty lax in our thinking to believe that there would never be a Trump type character that could potentially use these bills to do something crazy like Marshall Law or some other extreme form of human right infringement. So all the fear that is being expressed now is a direct result of the bills that were passed down the pike and are now in the hands of a man that we can’t gage temperament or stability. Am I reaching? Maybe, maybe not, that’s the point, we don’t know. What we do know is that power is a drug and when exercised by those that mishandle it or abuse it, it can have devastating effects. And the people who usually suffer those effects are the most vulnerable of the human family and the ones who get taken advantage of simply because they lack power and resources. So for the people that are fearful, right now, the ones who are screaming for Trump to be impeached. The people out in the streets protesting and marching. I ask you this, did you question Reagan, Bush sr., Clinton, Bush jr. or Obama? If your answer is no, then maybe you might want to revisit the mirage of lies that they fed all of us, and you may just come to the conclusion that none of them were really different than Trump.
