DRAINING THE REAL SWAMPS: HOW RADICALS COULD TAKE HOLD IN AMERICA

“Potential for something sinister is brewing.”


Since President Donald J. Trump was elected in the White House back in November of 2016, there has been a sharp rise in radical views. The feeling has been that he has sparked something in these groups to make them behave a certain way. Could there be some validity to the argument because he (Trump) has expressed disdain with the same people that masses have been angry with as well. Or, could the anger be over something different than the racial viewpoints coming from the news. Could it be that the feelings are coming from a place where we should be focusing our attention, instead of on the president’s language? I have a theory into the rising tension in the United States.

Yesterday was the shooting of a Republican Congressman Steve Scalise. He is currently in critical condition in a hospital, along with a few others that were assisting him as well. The shooting was targeted at Scalise because of his political affiliation. But what would prompt someone to shoot a politician in this country simply because they are of another political Related imageaffiliation? I think one of the connections is because of the disdain for leaders in this country. People have constantly expressed their anger toward politicians for not performing their duties in the manner in which they promised. People who feel they are doing their part, yet every four years, you only see politicians actively working when they are running for re-election. But, is that the only reason as to why this country is growing in radicalization; no.

Another reason tensions have been flaring up is the lose of jobs in this country. With manufacturing work being sent overseas and people becoming more and more desperate, I’m surprised there aren’t more of architecture, building, emptythese incidents like Scalise. It’s the reason why our leaders not only should assure the country that everything is going to be fine, but work to make everything fine. Because that desperation from people could easily flip into something much more sinister. You might start seeing the election of leaders who embody men of hate from the past. Do I see a Nazi regime taking hold, no. But could we still see a climb in people who teeter on that level, we most definitely could. People have been known to make some pretty crass decisions when their back are up against the wall.

But there still leaves one more reason that the tension has been growing in this country. And that reason is one that has been long standing; racial. Throughout the United States history racial issues have extended itself to African Americans fighting the dominant power source, which has historically been White males, for freedom. But what we have now in Related imageAmerica is something far different. Now the large number of White men and women are felling shutout. What’s interesting is that the majority of African Americans still struggle in the United States. So if these White men
and women feel slighted, who are they losing to in the end. Because the business environment is still predominantly White, college universities, medical field, engineering, politics, and outside of basketball and football, the vast majority of sports.

In the end, if the confidence is not placed back into the lives of the American people we could start to see radicals taking hold in our country. The Middle East won’t be the only problem on the government’s hands. People are becoming desperate and that’s the real problem. So many get upset with Trump calling him racist and gender biased. But the real hateful person is lurking and watching from afar. Yes, Trump is flawed because he’s not used to taking orders, which is something you must be willing to do as president. So Related imagehe’s shooting from the hip, causing himself to lose support. But I can’t agree with the hate aspect of people’s view on him. Yet I will say, people voted for him out of desperation. And if they will vote for him out of desperation, how long before real threats present themselves into our society. Moving forward, he need to stop delving so much into petty behavior and the citizens have to work with our leader, otherwise draining the swamp will be draining to sewer, but in reference to radicals and not politicians. Because at this moment that sewer is becoming clogged with raw sewage looking to present themselves.

DEARLY DEPARTED: OBAMA LAST SPEECH

“Where do we go from here?”

Last night, President Barack Obama gave his last speech to address the nation. He will leaving the White House after eight years as our Commander in Chief. From a stage in the city of Chicago, where he gave his speech coming into the White House, Obama gave his farewell. Thanking everyone from his Vice President to other cabinet members. From his wife to his two daughters. Now that he is exiting the White House, there is one question that lingers as President Elect Donald Trump enters. Where do we go from here? Obama and Joe Biden were two universally loved leaders, who received adulation worldwide. But with Donald Trump entering, we are seeing a total reverse of the former leaders.

Obama entered winning the Nobel Peace Prize, while Trump is entering with protest sparked across the country. Joe Biden was a major advocate for gay rights, while our new Vice President once stated that he believed in gay conversion treatment. And with the inauguration within a week of our new president, multiple actions groups have already planned to converge on our nation’s capital. So like I said before, where do we go from here? Because if this is any indication into what the country could be the next four years, then Trump won’t be doing much of anything that he promised as president. Obama was beloved and he himself had to deal with a host of social issues. What about now with a president who is already being protested on the way into office?

As for the citizens of America, the country is split, to the point families have stopped speaking to one another. This is the reason why Trump should really pay close attention to his conduct in office. Not only did the majority of the country vote against him, but there is already signs of push back from within the government. The fact that all of a sudden now the FBI wants to conduct investigations into election scandals are laughable. Considering it has been questionable that Bush won two states in two separate elections. Yet, no real investigation has been put into action. So when a country, not to mention globally, people are railing this hard, you have to be real smart how you move.

Back to the question, where to go from here? Should we continue to protest or see how this plays out before reacting. The main action that should be taking place is strengthening the bind that is in this country. You don’t want to be a president where the majority of the country’s population is against you. Because what it does now is set you up for anything having the ability to be true. People will believe whether true or false because they need any reason to say remove him. Another suggestion is, do we change the election process. A lot of people have expressed disdain for the electoral college having so much influence over who gets into office. This could backfire considering the inverse now means your guy could lose the same way.

Whatever the case may be, moving forward with the new president has already caused so many problems and he’s not even in office yet. Are people right to fight or should we allow something to happen before we jump to conclusions? He has said things on the campaign trail that have led to uproar, but will that mean the same for the White House? All I know is that we have four years to see what happens. Angry or not, he won and we have Trump for a full term. For if we are not able to fully galvanize as a country, it’s only going to hurt us collectively in the end.
