Common Sense and Politics

I grew up in a little town called Quanah, named for a very unusual Indian Chief of the Plains Indians. Chief Quanah never lost a single battle to the American Government...a singular accomplishment for any leader. He was subsequently honored by our government and this little town was named in his honor. As I consider the war like nature of the world today, I can't help but consider the example left by the Chief. If he had a motto, it surely went something like this "seek peace, but don't let anyone run over you" or as Teddy Roosevelt would have said "walk softly but carry a big stick." Today, we call that common sense, and there seems to be a scarcity of it. If we're not careful we are going to lose our honor and our country through hate, not of the enemy, mind you, but because a segment of our citizens have come to believe that if you don't think the way they do, you are an "enemy" and so anything goes. Yes, I speak of the attacks on our President. To tell you the unvarnished truth, when Mr. Obama was elected I thought the world had come to an end. It wasn't because he was black, I thought that would have been a wonderful point at which this country had arrived, and under different circumstances I would have been very proud of our accomplishment. No, my displeasure was because he was slick like a salesman who suckers his clients, because he had the ambitions of a dictator, because he didn't really like America and neither did his wife, and also, shades of Mr. Trump, he had no experience except in propaganda, while Mr. Trumps experience was in how to handle money. Yes, America was suckered when we elected Obama and bad became worse over the years and I was happy that his term ran out because I feared he would never leave the office. There is only one thing to say about it, bad choices always spawn bad circumstances that will follow, so now we are having to pay the piper. In-fighting and back-stabbing have taken the place of dignity and honor in Congress. Will we survive this war within our country in order to be successful in the one that is on its way? Will our governments decisions survive a century as Chief Quanah's decisions have? Or will we be captives of the wickedness of betrayal by our own people both those who know better and by juveniles who think they know it all and really know next to nothing. We are in difficult times and I want to say something about our president and about those who belittle him. I would have preferred to have a nominee I could vote for who had a clean background morally, but that didn't happen. On the other hand there was FDR, Kennedy, Clinton and the wife Clinton among others who were grossly immoral, who were never held responsible for their personal lives, nor vilified as President Trump and his family are now. Both our president  and his family are vilified and threatened on a daily basis. Mr. and Mrs. Obama were for the most part respected, only because of the role that he  was elected to fill and his detractors realized that hurting him would also hurt the country.  That, too, is called common sense. 

President Trump has the knowledge to pull us out of a great deal of the mess that Obama left...if he has the cooperation he deserves...if the country gives him the respect AS PRESIDENT that he deserves, if you don't drive a good man out of office which is your goal. Yes, I call him a good man. I doubt there are very many in the percentage of his haters who haven't been where he has been morally which seems to be the big problem with those who hate him. That problem is often called Jealousy and/or Hypocrisy. The other reason he is hated is because he is wealthy. That too comes under the title of Jealousy. To sum up what I have to say about our President who is TRYING and who is LEARNING is that He can fool all of you who hate him, and then I suspect you will hate him all the more. How about showing a little honor and dignity and patience? You just might be happier in the long run.
