Is Trump’s United States Our United States?

Since the election of Donald Trump there has been a question asked….what sort of America will this become?  We have become a petty race when we make more out of small occurrences than large ones….our fascination with someone’s choice of head gear, for an example….what has become of this nation?

This is a good piece that tries to answer this question….

Are we the great US of courage, spunk, openness, inclusion, opportunity and democratic promise — as expressed in the Declaration of Independence, the Preamble to the Constitution, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms and Emma Lazarus’ sonnet engraved on the Statue of Liberty?

Or are we the sad US of fear, cowardice, bigotry, xenophobia, intolerance and autocracy — negative traits emanating from the darkness of Donald Trump’s miserable dystopian view of our society, which has now resulted in him unilaterally imposing a contemptible and chaotic ban on immigrants from seven Muslim nations.

  1. Trump has made us skeptical of all news. He has made us feel afraid of the hoards of immigrants, millions flooding into our country. He has made us see regulations as bad things. On and on

  2. Quite an interesting article. I agreed more than disagreed with most points made. I continue to point out to people who are pro-travel ban that the countries MOST associated with terrorism against the U.S. are surprisingly absent. The hypocrisy stinks like the old Fresh Kills landfill of New York on a 101F degree summer day.

  3. I’m getting the impression Dump thinks this Presidency thing he won is a spot for a new reality show. Seriously, he’s pandered to, followed by cameras, posted all over the media, people hang onto his every word, and he has no script to work from. It’s a really crappy one, too.

  4. I’m not so sure that things have changed that much. Perhaps some of the thoughts and ideas are out in the open for once, but I recall thinking that Nixon was a disaster, Reagan was a fool, and Clinton an amateur. Trump is adding to a pretty long list, as seen from a foreign perspective.
    Regards, Pete.
