“Life, & liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
When those words were written, the French Revolution had just shattered the concepts of civilization. Ever since the dawn of history, power was determined by your blood. The only path to the throne was predetermined. If you were not born into royalty, you would never be a ruler. Imagine a world with such severe restrictions! The French Revolution ended this primitive way of life. In the smoking embers of the French Revolution, America was born. An age of enlightenment followed, in which democracy ruled the land.
If only those great men who participated in the Philadelphia Convention in 1787, knew that the document they were writing would one day be the spine of almost every government in the world. Essentially, our Constitution was written to embody the most latent virtues of life. Not everyone is born with royal blood. However, every human being is born with the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
We opened our doors to the world. If your government refuses to respect these basic rights, than you can seek refuge in America. Gives us your policemen, poets and paupers. Come to America, where your dreams can become reality! For the past few hundred years, immigrants come to America to escape poverty, starvation, oppression, tyranny and any many other crippling injustices. These immigrants dream of a life in America, where they can live in freedom and where they can practice any religion they want.
The Statue of Liberty, a gift from the French, embodies these aspirations. She stands at 305 feet. She is a magnificent marvel of artistry and engineering. Trump obviously despises the Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty is an iconic structure that tells the world that America welcomes those fleeing bigotry and violence, everything that Trump hates about America. The part of the Statue of Liberty that Trump undoubtedly hates the most is her right leg. It is stepping forward with defining purpose. This icon of freedom and salvation has never stopped.
Trump became president on his pledge to deport people based on ethnicity and religion. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), have rounded up thousands of Mexicans, Muslims, and Middle Eastern descent. Trump refers to them as “bad dudes”. Over the weekend, dozens of Iraqi Christians were seized, and are now on their way back Iraq. Yahoo article
“Someone like the president of the United States has to step in, he has promised in the past that he was going to protect our community, but the people that are being sent back now are being sent back as a direct deal between the United States and the Iraqi government to accept these people,” Oshana, who claimed that some of those arrested had not committed any crimes at all, told Catholic news outlet EWTN Monday.
Converted Christians being sent back to Iraq, could automatically warrant a death sentence. According to a Trump tweet in January, “Christians in the Middle-East have been executed in large numbers.”
How could you call yourself a Christian if you advocate sending another Christian to their deaths? Mind you, these are Christians so devout, that they fled to our shores, so that they could practice their faith without persecution. Most of these Iraqis being sent to their death, have lived in America peacefully for decades. For a law abiding productive component of our society, to be torn from their homes, stuffed in a cell and eventually executed, is a violation that we should not allow.
Think of the families that flee tyranny. Life is so wretched in some places, that families risk death by traveling to our shores in a raft. When they get here, we just kick them back to the hell they came from? No. This is not the America I was taught to be proud of.
Trump might take away your kid’s Sesame Street. Trump may snatch your mother’s social security benefits or your nephew’s disability benefits. All of these losses may seem tragic, but they are only fleeting. The next democratic president will return this aid. It’ll be tough for the next few years, some will undoubtedly die, but we’ll get through it.
Remember that flag, you Trumpkin sons-of-bitches, as the Muslims are kicked out of our country. You are lucky your great grandmother wasn’t kick out like that.
However, the lasting damage caused by Trump, will be to America, and to the world. As a result, America will lose her identity. America will no longer be that sacred utopia that the oppressed all over the world dream about. As a result of Trump, the world has lost it’s last safety net.
YOU are the ‘bad dude’, President Trump. In a delirious thirst for power, you said anything that could get you elected. Even if it meant thousands of good Americans would die, you told America to hate Muslims and Hispanics. Even if it meant these good Americans would be dragged through the streets, by the ropes of your manufactured hatred. The following you achieved, was only on the backs of hatred and anger. Such, were the same roads Hitler and Mussolini marched.
