To the editor:
Ethnicity division and differences in humans have been exploited and used by our irresponsible politicians and propaganda machines to propagate despair, division and tribalism. It is definitely sowing hatred and division. The tactic is used by irresponsible politicians to manipulate you, and votes. It is really that simple!
When all people are united we are stronger. We are powerful as one group. Divide us into tribes and, well, you can see what is happening.
Division is not something President Trump created. This has been going on for decades and has led up to where we are today. In fact, we have had a lot of irresponsible career politicians complaining the problem is Trump but I argue the irresponsible politicians, especially the ones who have been in office for decades, are the real problem.
There are differences between humans such as ethnicity and culture but are all one race, the human race. We all eat, sleep and have to earn a living. We all pay taxes and deal with injustices. We love our freedom and want a fair chance to succeed. We love our family and want posterity. We all want a better future.
The preamble of our Constitution covers what most people want. “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
I do not agree socialism or communism is a better system. Capitalism has its issues but by far is the only “ism” with a constitution for people’s rights.
If our irresponsible politicians and capitalist cronies would adhere to our constitutional goals, we wouldn’t be in this mess today. But the irresponsible politicians and capitalists are selfish and corrupt with power. The global lobbyist agenda rules a portion of our government and is increasingly destroying the United States from within.
We should focus peaceful protest in the millions at our political offices. But we also need some leadership with a purpose, not revolutionaries. Burning down businesses and taking over cities is the wrong target and is destructive. Unfortunately, the unrest has been welcomed by our irresponsible politicians. It will get worse if we continue down this path.
Irresponsible politicians in general are the ones directly responsible for the mess we are in today. And they don’t take any responsibility for it.
The issue is not statues or past history. Trying to change history or tear down statues will not resolve one thing. The issues are policies and laws created by our governance. This is what people are rebelling against. But when asked, most protesters don’t seem to have their own voice. I just typically hear the same slogans with empty solutions.
There are injustices being perpetrated on all Americans and of all ethnicities. We should all be treated equally as lady justice represents! But realize we aren’t all equal because of our individuality. All humans have the will to make good and bad decisions on an individual basis. We reap what we sow from our own thoughts and actions. We too should take responsibility for our actions.
This doesn’t mean there are no inequalities or injustices. But reject division, tribalism and hate. Together we can stop the injustices and make changes by voting out these irresponsible career politicians or socially engineered politicians who are already owned. Don’t burn down your town or attack your everyday citizen; they are just as frustrated as you. And reject dictatorships, communism and socialism because we know they are not better systems..
Together we can make America better!
