Over the past four years, Donald Trump has unleashed chaos in America. But this week, the chaos has sunk to new depths, and threatens the foundations of democracy and people’s real lives.
Donald Trump has sewn chaos with people’s lives by failing to control the coronavirus in America. More than 180,000 Americans have died as of this writing, and more than 6,000,000 have been infected. Six months since the first cases were diagnosed in the U.S., and still he has no testing plan. He doesn’t even admit that there is a problem. At the RNC, the recurring theme was that America is past the pandemic. As if 1000 deaths a day are normal. It’s not normal.
Donald Trump has unleashed economic chaos by failing to control the economic tumbling resulting from the pandemic. Unemployment is over 10%, the highest it’s been since the 2008 recession. 12.9 million jobs were lost from February, and only 42% of those jobs have been regained. Seven months since the economy started to tank, and he still has no plan to address it.
And then there is the chaos on the streets caused directly by Trump. Democrats Abroad-Israel mourns with Kenosha, WI. Terror has swept the streets of American cities and we are alarmed that these are the signs of impending fascist control. Children in cages, civilians ‘disappeared’ in unmarked cars by riot police without name tags or department affiliation, and now armed vigilantes roaming the streets like the ‘brown shirts’ of twentieth century history.
Donald Trump cannot control the violence and chaos he has unleashed. For four years he has been saying the quiet parts out loud – the racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, anti-LGBTQIA, islamophobic slams. He has called for ‘loyalty’ from his followers. Is anyone really surprised when white supremicists, militiamen, skin-heads, neo-Nazis come out from under their rocks and start acting violently in American cities? They heard the call from the White House and they answered it. He has no control over their violence and chaos.
There is no time to be spared — we must protect our freedoms right now. The U.S. Constitution’s preamble begins: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union”. We are ever striving to form a more perfect union, but it requires that We the People, and all three branches of government created under the Constitution do everything in our power to “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”. Donald Trump has failed to do his job as president. He has created chaos instead.
The country is in turmoil brought on by the president. The Senate failed to fulfill its duty when it sat as a court of impeachment. And so, it is up to us, the People, to vote him and the Republican Senators who enable him out of office. Get your ballot (www.votefromabroad.org) and vote as soon as your ballot arrives on September 19! Do your part to insure domestic Tranquility and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.
