Lucky me. I get to live just long enough to witness history in the making…the dismantling of the America Democratic system of government. Back in the beginning of this system the ingenious concept of ‘checks and balances’ was established. That and the idea that we would have a government reliant on the rule of law. As we all know, these two things are the glue that holds it all together. The integrity of these is only as strong as the integrity of our elected leaders and representatives who operate within the system. I don’t see any integrity at all. This is not a Republican or Democrat problem, it’s collectively our problem. The worst part is our acceptance of it. We watch like ’deer in the headlights’ as it happens. With the intelligence of said deer. This reminds me of the lines in the Paul Simon song, An American Tune –
“And I dreamed I was flying, and high up above my eyes could clearly seeThe statue of liberty, sailing away to sea, and I dreamed I was flying
So long Lady Liberty it’s been good to know you, for a fleeting moment in history.
