Opening Pandora’s Box
There was an undercurrent sweeping across America that evil was on the rampage and completely out of control. Good people were being unfairly punished and bad people were getting off scot free. Political Correctness was the order of the day and there was no choice but to get onboard or suffer the consequences. It was quite surprising when one man said no and stood firm as he was going to “Drain the Swamp”. Just who in the world did he think he was anyway?
That man was Donald J. Trump a self-made millionaire real estate tycoon and entertainer who announced he was going to run for the office of President of the United States. Among his campaign promises he was going to drain the swamp, meaning the corruption in Washington D.C. and folks were not too happy about it. Politicians wanted business as usual, big money wanted access to people in power and absolutely nobody wanted Trump to mess it up by opening Pandora’s Box.
I read somewhere that draining the swamp was like pulling the plug on a giant swimming pool or maybe like a huge cesspool or toilet bowl whereas the water dropped lower and lower unusual objects would begin to protrude higher and higher until all that was left was s big gooey mess. Mired down in the goo were all kinds of creatures, flopping around unable to get themselves out on their own. At some point as the sun began to bake the goo it turned into soft clay, before hardening to a firm crust, imbedding everything within its grasp.
What began during the 2016 Presidential campaign season with rhetoric has over the past 2 years turned into a nightmare and political reality. Petty little kingdoms began to crumble and fall, castles were uprooted and even now we’ve not seen the level of accountability that one would expect from those so high up on the political totem pole that has left so many resembling post turtles that didn’t put them up there; they don’t know how to get down off the post; and have absolutely no idea what to do while their up there.
We are barely 15 months from the 2020 Presidential Election and already the 26 Democratic post turtles are resting uncomfortably atop their posts. They boast on how to beat Trump, but don’t have the wherewithal to do so. They want to be POTUS #46 but haven’t a snowballs chance in………Arizona of getting there.
Almost to a tee every Democratic candidate wants to raise taxes, cut industrial jobs like coal and oil production; forgive college tuition for all students, regardless of their field of study or how many years they’ve been career students? They want to eliminate America’s borders, welcome in everyone and put them on the government’s dole (welfare, free stuff and so on). They approve of mass migration and taking care of illegals already in this country, but want to prosecute federal agents who enforce US laws, but want law breakers taken care of in sanctuary cities and states.
Almost every Democrat approves of abortion (murder of babies in the womb or moments after birth)? They think socialism and communism means everyone gets their own free account on social media and communal living is really cool. You don’t have to work if you don’t want to, because you can get lots of free stuff from the government. They want to reduce the carbon footprint by banning air travel and airplanes, so everyone will have to take the bus (it’s going to be quite a long trip to Hawaii).
They want to eliminate toxic gases emitted from cows and ban plastic straws while doing nothing for saving the environment. Their biggest goal besides Climate Change and the Green New Deal is to unseat President Trump at all costs. Their ideas are so absurd that members of their own party throw in the towel and are announcing they’ll vote for Trump.
The current rage is on restricting gun ownership based upon the constitutional need for certain types of firearms. Would that they spend more time on figuring out how to get gun toting criminals off the streets and their guns out of circulation instead of depriving lawful gun owners their constitutional right to own and bear arms. Keep weapons out of the hands of those institutionalized or imprisoned, but to restrict, remove or confiscate weapons from law abiding citizens seems like a bad idea.
People are really quick to criticize President Trump for the way he talks or tweets, while completely overlooking and ignoring the hateful rhetoric coming from those on the political left. It’s ok for them to attack him, but not ok for him to defend himself or go on the offensive.
If you don’t like something and have the power to change it leaves you with nobody to blame but yourself. For all those open-minded people out there once the lid is off Pandora’s Box there is no putting it back on and acting like nothing has changed. For all you Christians out there rest assured that God is on the move and has everything totally under control. You can’t surprise God! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
