Have you heard the term “purge” used so much here in the US? It was a term used by Stalin to rid himself of all those people that did not show proper loyalty to Fearless leader. And now it is being used by the treacherous foot soldiers of Donald Trump…..member of Congress who swore an oath to protect the Constitution not a person.
I have always thought most of the American politicians were cowards….but since January these people give a whole new definition to the term.
The fate of nations often comes down to the choices made by a handful of individuals at a particular moment in history. Today, the United States is facing just such a moment. What a handful of individual Republicans decide will shape the future not just of the country, but of democracy itself.
Modern history is littered with similarly pivotal choices, for better or worse. A century ago, the Russian Revolution came down to a showdown between the iron will of Vladimir Lenin and the indecisiveness of Alexander Kerensky, who ended up sneaking out of Saint Petersburg to escape the Bolsheviks.
There has been a flow about our politics that has made party more important than country…..it has been brewing for decades but finally came to a head with the election of a new president.
The Congress is proving that traitors are in the government and not in the streets…..all Americans should be wary of anyone that uses the term “purge” when talking about the government and its institutions. They should label the traitors as such especially when they are going against the oath to protect the country from enemies both foreign and domestic and those enemies are found within the Congress.
