The Dogs of War
Good morning sweet Kace,
As one of the United States closest allies, or at least was at one time, your nation has lost so much courageously and selflessly having our backs. I ask you- how many people recognize this.
Your poem is a stark and grave reminder of what we as a nation are sowing here in the United States. I have recommended and even urged people to read An Illustrated a History of the Gestapo. It is chilling and foreboding and the scene Hitler set is very nearly parallel to the scene Trump is setting. Of course, the Gestapo or storm troopers were well established before he came into power. Shall we not also forget Mussolini and Stalin.
If he is re- elected, as he was dishonestly elected in 2016- read Targeted- I'm afraid our democracy will be completely destroyed and it will be to the delight of Putin, Kim, and Xi, along with Iran.
Still, there are those who will sink their teeth and their flesh into anyone who dares to criticize their savior( Trump). There are many here on Fanstory as was noted in the political forum. Don't be fooled by fake friends- that is my motto anyway.
Contrary to what many so called pseudo Christians believe, the God of Christianity did not put this demon in office anymore than he put Hitler or Stalin, or Mussolini, or Kim or Putin in office. He allowed them to reign, simply because man in all his pride and arrogance across the world did not want to be ruled by the righteousness and firmness of the biblical God. They wanted to rule themselves, so he allowed them. For in time it will prove mankind's folly and downfall.
Anyone who supports this man is not only a blind fool but to me.
In my opinion, there are only three, possibly four kinds of people who support this imbecile.
1. The gathered masses who have deep seated and deeply rooted feelings of superiority toward other races.
2. Those who identify with staunch Republican values regardless of whether he truly represents those values or whether the GOP does- these people just identify with the name.
3. All those who are easily swayed and thrive on conspiracy theories.
4. Those who truly, truly, are not educated enough, nor do they want to be, to see and understand our democracy is at stake, they just think he's some down to earth guy who has their well being at heart. True ignorance.
And then we have
Also, far right wing evangelicals who are so indoctrinated which creates highly toxic and unwavering judgements of condemnation of social issues their God deems as a sin.
The great partisan divide in our country is killing us. It will be the greatest falter in our demise.
So called Republicans and Democrats alike are so engrossed in turf wars and staunch ideologies, they have lost track and a sense of who they represent and why. I could go on and on.
Thank you for posting, though I'm not sure if you were alluding to the United States.
You see in our country, we are so inundated with our national news and headlines, we as a compendium of people fail to realize there are other democracies out in the small world who operate with the same or many concerns we have. Also, since we are one of the most powerful nations in the world, our decisions and our issues affect the world inna most profound and life altering way. We are that huge mammoth elephant who can roll over the smaller creatures instead of protecting them with our might.
Thank you for sharing. A wonderful verse with a strong message. This the six. I don't critique on form. I'm not expert enough to do so, but I am an expert of what I believe.
Your friend, distant and often preoccupied
