Is this the America we want?

There is a disturbing trend in the USA today. It is total disrespect for the US president. This country is becoming the laughing stock of the world.

Has the GOP sunk to a new level of disgust?

Does this represent the true GOP agenda?

It seems to be the rage these days, and it is disgusting, appalling, and frightening, for those of us who cannot, and will not, understand and/or condone this kind of bigotry any more.

What has America become? Our 'diversity' has turned to segregation and hate mongering. The ''equal rights" and "human rights" concepts have turned into " "equal rights for the selective few". That select few seems to be the right wing, white, Christian, heterosexual faction.

These apparent GOP trends are extremely disturbing, and attack the the very foundation of democracy, freedom, and equality. They promote disrespect, hatred, intolerance, and social unrest.


Is this really the direction that Americans want to take for our future?

These attacks on America, democracy, and equal rights are NOT the view of the majority of decent law abiding American citizens. They are reflective of the opposite, and perpetrated by the radical right wing conservatives who would sooner see America destroyed than be allowed to move in the direction of progress and acceptance of diversity as natural part of life.

We cannot allow this country to be taken over by such radicals, or the religions they represent. The war in this country seems to be a war between decency, logic, love and acceptance and the few who promote the opposite points of view.

2. Tennessee judge changes baby's name


A Tennessee judge orders parents to change their child's name. This story takes our justice system beyond reality and back to the middle ages. This blatant promotion of religious beliefs by our court system is a total disgrace to this country. We must not allow our public servants to promote their religious beliefs above logic and reality.

In a speech in Ames Iowa, Texas Republican Senator, Ted Cruz again raps Obama health care law. This article personifies the 'out of touch with reality' mentality of the GOP today. This fight to overturn Obama care has gone too far. The GOP has taken this beyond what is right and just for everyone to simply a fight against anything that this president does, just to discredit him. Reversing or discarding this law would harm more people than it will help the GOP image.

It was decided by the American Medical Association, and the Psychiatric Association some 30 + years ago that homosexuality was not a "disease", or a physical or psychological disorder.

This kind of treatment by any physician is nothing more than an exercise in promoting their personal opinions based on their ludicrous religious beliefs. This is totally inappropriate, unacceptable, and unforgivable.

5. House GOP refusing to vote on immigration reform

Do House Republicans have political incentive to back immigration reform?

This story has heart wrenching consequences for millions of American citizens and makes no sense at all.

We all know there is a dire need for sensible immigration reform, but the GOP does not care about the immigrants, or their plight.

The main GOP focus is still on discrediting and obstructing anything that this current administration does to try and solve the most perplexing problems this country faces today. This focus is on winning the 2016 presidential elections and certainly not on doing anything constructive to fix our economic problems of today.

What goes around, comes around. Seems I saw a lot of negative, absolutely disrespectful stuff put out about one President George W. Bush, up to and including using his face on a head stuck on a pole in an HBO mini-series.

Now, to be honest, my problem with the current occupant of the White House rests solely with his policies. I don't give a darned about race, color, creed, etc... Do I think the rodeo clown went to far? Yeah. I do.

Why is the USA becoming the laughing stock of the world? Let's see:

- Cults of personality

- Reality shows

- Political blundering

- The fact that we're following the Europeans we split from over 237 years ago down the rabbit hole of Socialism

- That we're still shoveling trillions of dollars into bottomless pits of programs that have NEVER succeeded in doing what they were created to do

- That we're more polarized politically, socially, and racially than we've ever been before

- That the world's one remaining super-power is about kaput

Please, take your pick.

The answer to your question is Social Darwinism.

The American Legislative Education Council and their corporate supporters are following the likes of John D. Rockefeller Sr., and establishing the nonsense reality of Eugenics. Evolution in the form of the survival of the fittest applied to human beings. But not in any real sense of the phrase, only in the economic sense of the phrase.

It's the idea that there must be some human beings that can be identified as superior. Germany and Aryans are called to mind.

In America these people can't stomach the idea that "All Men are Created Equal". And, refuse to acknowledge that reality. So, we have pundits that take the word socialism as an example and apply that to the President. As if socialism had any real basis in reality right now. But what it does do is give people who are paranoid of change a word to use that really only implies racism, but doesn't come right out and use the "N" word to describe our Commander and Chief.

Reagan tax cut and spend policies has brought this government to a place where it can no longer pursue it's regulatory function. While the US Supreme Court has facilitated the GOP and the ALEC in their real goal of establishing this as a country of the corporation, by the corporation, and for the corporation.

What needs to happen is to amend the 14th Amendment to include the phrase that a person under the law is a biological breathing entity. Which would make corporate person hood a thing of the past. Force Congress and state and local governments to rewrite the law governing corporations. It would also force the individuals who own and control those corporations to be on equal footing with the American People which is as it should be.

Jayfort:

Thank you for reading and commenting. I must agree with you on most of your comments. The ones i take issue with are the blanket statements...."... that we are following the Europeans down the rabbit hole of Socialism". This country will never fully adopt socialism, but the necessity for "social programs" is a dire necessity. I do agree though, that there are many of these that are wasting money, time and resources because they are inadequately and inefficiently run. We must not lose our humanity as a nation, and we must push our politicians to overhaul, amend, or correct the rules that only allow certain people to take advantage of those programs.

But the problem does not stop at our "social programs"; it is much farther reaching, and the greatest thieves are the Corporate giants that rob us much more than the needy do, [wasteful military spending, throwing billions/trillions of dollars away on foreign countries that give nothing back in return, etc...]

You are right about this country being polarized. This problem is also far reaching and includes the interference by religious entities, corporate America and wall street having too much influence and power in our government.

All great civilizations have fallen because of corruption, waste, and interference in the private lives of their citizenry. This country will be no exception - the question is not (if will this country will fall) but (when) without major changes being made.

However, this article is NOT about the President or his policies. It is factually based on what the GOP is currently doing to the economy, against women's rights, their discriminatory actions against minorities based on their questionable morality judgments, their obstructionism to progress, and wasting more tax payer money trying to de-fund the affordable health care act that is already into law, and helping us more than harming.

Thanks your for your comments. I agree with your comments 100%. The name calling seems to be the only weapon that those who are trying to destroy America can find that "riles up the bases". Ignorance always begets ignorance.

It is obvious that the 'crazies' have taken over our government, or at least they have enough control to muck up the workings of government, only to the extent of adding extra pressures and hardships on the American people without offering any alternative solutions to the problems.

We cannot survive with two political parties that are so diametrically opposed to each other that all rationality and common sense is lost. Without the ability to find common goals, common grounds, and concessions that will actually benefit the American people, we are doomed to fall even further into despair and hardship, while Wall Street, Corporate America, and the wealthy continue to rob us blind.

That is the root isn't it, D, the scorched earth policy, advocated by the "Third Reich"?

I have written many articles regarding these disturbing trends in politics and the economy. I always speculated on the reason that the GOP continues to have traction nts appeal to the darker side of human nature greed, racism, resentment. The sort that talked about the good old days that never really existed, where everything and everbody was in its proper place. This new ruthless conservative class are determined to keep the sun from rising and will do anything toward that end. But we all know that it is coming up anyway, whether they like it or not.

Thanks for your comments. I fear it will get a lot worse before it gets any better. I only hope it does not take the total destruction of America before people finally wake up and see what is happening, and why.

The Tea Party/conservatives/GOP and Corporate America always talk about progressives promoting socialism as being one of the biggest problems, but they have no idea what they are saying.. Our "social policies" also include public services like the police, firemen, teachers, air traffic controllers, public defenders, and more. They are systematically destroying these as well, as is seen by their attacks on them in the "blue" states that are Republican controlled.

I have been studying "The Federalist Papers" and "The Anti-Federalist Papers", copyright 1982. It fascinates me how much our present circumstances are reflected in those pages.

1. The manipulation of the law by Corporate America using the 14th Amendment. Even our US Supreme Court has demonstrated that they like the Taney Court regard human beings as property. Today we are treated like property of the corporation, just as slaves were property of their masters before the Civil War.

2. How carefully and effectively Corporate American has used privatizing the military as the means to effectively establish their control over Washington, in the form of the Military-Industrial-Complex that President Eisenhower warned us about. They are rich at the taxpayer's expense and yet, the Veteran's Administration is an antiquated and outdated mess. Thanks for fighting for your country, but after that you are on your own.

3. The 4th Estate was the driving force that brought down the corruption of the Nixon White House, and then became the dog and pony show that was Iran-Contra. The serious joke that was Weapons of Mass-Destruction. And last but not least, the lack of accountability associated with those forces that brought about the housing and mortgage crisis.

The joke that some corporations are just too big to fail.

The difference being that thanks to Reagan Policies corporations were and are now in control of the media. A public service turned propaganda machine.

4. The failure of the Equal Rights Amendment. This is what is meant by strict construction-ism. Destroying all those parts of the Constitution that establish "All Men are Created Equal" into "All Corporations are Equal". Just another mishap associated with the abuse of the 14th Amendment.

My thought process is about what it will take to force corporations to seek and accept their role under the law as servants of the will of the People. As it is said "We the People..." and not "We the Corporation..."

My favorite news source, is the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. This guy is funny, but his depth of focus on being both funny and precise is amazing.

A recent episode was focused on Tax Reform. It talked about the fact that Congress as a whole is so nervous about this issue, that the content of discussion will be kept secret for 50 years.

Then they brought up something else amazing. In 1974, at the height of Watergate only 3% of Congress as a whole moved into the ranks of lobbies. Today it's 42% of the House and 50% of the Senate that move on into the lobby industry.

Their fear in wanting secrecy is about offending potential employers and not the American People, who are their rightful employers.

The Equal Rights Amendment is now more necessary than ever. But it must include so much more than just equal rights for women.

1. The vetting process (which is a fancy word for background check) is not in the Constitution nor should the process ever be. It is a product of Social Darwinism. In this context it is about finding like minded people to help control the political and corporate agenda in the name of National Security.

2. This should also include discrimination and disenfranchisement, which is also a byproduct of the vetting consciousness.

3. Collective Bargaining. The right to demand some measure of control over how we are paid. The right to cost of living pay increases. The right to suspend any treaties that favor corporate profits over the wages of the American People. With a more accurate look at why Canadians trust both their Government and their Banking System.

4. Serious and accurate health reform.

5. Amending Social Security into the Constitution.

You will remember privatizing Social Security was a priority before the economic crisis of late. I see the privatizing issue as proof of who knew where the future of the economy was before it crashed to include Bush Administration, Jr.. Getting their hands on that money had a two fold purpose. To hide what was really happening and to hide what the real effect of Reagan's tax cut and spend policies were really about.

Bankrupting the government of it's regulatory power.

Which in my view is everything the New Deal had done to level the playing field between Corporations and Individuals.

But there are challenges to making such an amendment possible.

The fight to prevent the original ERA Amendment from becoming law should tell us all that Congress is no longer the overseer of factional issues as described by our founding fathers. As so credibly portrayed in the movie "Lincoln". But they have long since been the puppets of Corporate America.

I believe that to get corporations to serve the interests of the People first has always been and always be their major priority.

It's getting them to account for themselves and getting them to the bargaining table that is the issue.

I love the idea of abolishing our Standing Army, because were the American People to make such a demand upon Congress and it were taken seriously, I see rolling back Reagan tax cuts to before they were enacted easily accomplished.

I see making the Corporations who brought down the economy who are too big to fail saddled with the responsibility of paying all the mortgages they foreclosed on, and helping to reinstate all those families back into their homes.

I see making the corporations responsible for the fraud of the tax cut and spend policies responsible for paying down the National Debt to per Reagan policy levels.

WOW. Excellent information and quite scarey for the people. There is more corruption in this government than there ever was in the past. I cannot foresee any major changes in the near future without an actual civil war. This congress will never go up against Corporate America, wall street, the wealthy, or those bastards that think they are too big to fail.

The first step would be to break up all monopolies as was the case in the past. This would be a major step towards putting things back into perspective. I cannot imagine anyone already in Washington, or coming up in the future, that would be able to accomplish the reversal of what this government has turned into, or even having the balls to state their intentions to attempt doing so.

Although, our best hope just might be found in Hilary Clinton as president, believe it or not. This is why the GOP is already trying to destroy her before she even decides to run in 2016.

It is really sad that with four more years of the current administration (voted in by the people) the campaigning by the GOP for 2016 is taking priority over all else, and their obstructionism will only escalate.

Not true there has always been some measure of scandal associated with Washington. This link should help you in your research. http://americanhistory.about.com/od/uspresidents/t...

As for Hilary Clinton I would have voted for her in 2008.

It is my belief that pundits like Rush Limbaugh were assigned the task of keeping Hilary out of the race. Much focus from conservatives was on allowing for the President's candidacy in the hope that America was not yet ready to elect a Black man president.

The only alleged proof I have of that, is that when she was officially out of the race Rush Limbaugh received a big raise at the same time.

And, then it was election night 2012. I was watching everybody, especially Fox News. I was impressed with how Carl Rove was in denial over the election results as they were coming in.

A Civil War of any type is not the answer.

Because the point is, for major portions of Corporate America they are still fighting the Civil War that was lost in the South, in 1865. Their focus not on the issues of slavery itself, but on how the end of slavery had affected their bottom line.

Supporters of the South today, will tell you that the focus of the Civil War was purely an economic one. Which to some degree is true. Mississippi was the richest State in the Union before the War, and is still one of the poorest after the War.

I think it interesting that one of the issues that had been discussed in the South before the Civil War was the use of slave labor. Poor Southern white people saw slaves as competition, but did not advocate abolishing slavery.

While today one of the attitudes of Corporate America to justify their focus on profits over reasonable wages, is that they supply the jobs. We the People should be grateful.

The Civil Rights Movement of the 50's and 60's are being blamed on the New Deal, the Warren Court, and Truman integrating the the military. These are the seeds of prejudice that have fostered the development of the Military-Industrial-Complex, in my perception.

My father was a Southern Democrat turned Republican in the wake of these issues and followed the lead of such so-called Southern hero's as Strom Thurmond. He was also in the Air Force. He was a Southerner facing one of his own worst prejudices, and quietly resented it.

I wrote on another hub focused on these type of issues. I wrote that when I was in school, civics lessons about checks and balances came in four parts. The three main branches of government and then the People themselves. The Constitution giving the People the power to rebel and change things, as needed. Then when I was in prison I ran across a civics text book copyright 1991(give or take) that had eliminated the People as part of the discussion of checks and balances.

I think that tells the tale better than I can myself.

Here are some basic attitudes in modern music to make the point...

"Sweet Home Alabama", the song by Lynyrd Skynyrd has one phrase of a great song that points to Southern indifference to the social issue of race. It is their indifference to Neal Young's outrage toward the South in the song,"Southern Man".

I see today's US Supreme Court in the same light as the Taney Court in Dred Scott v. Sanford.

I think Hilary Clinton is the strongest potential candidate in the field.

My concern is with how she will present herself. Will she fight to challenge the status quo (Corporate America) and how will she do it?

Or like all President's since Carter will she cow-tow to the Corporate Elite?

What we really need is for We the People to stop fighting each other and take back the power grant to us through the Constitution before corporations steal that from us as well.

A. bundy: Great link thanks.

yes, there have been many scandals throughout the years surrounding the presidency, but i don't think most of them came close to our current corruption by such a conglomeration of powerful entities such as Corporate America, Religious interferences, wall street, banks, and the total infiltration by those crooks into a political party that now solely represents them, and not the American people who elected them.

Looking at the current candidates that are already campaigning for 2016, there are none, so far, in the GOP that is not some kind of crackpot. And the only viable candidate on the left is H.C.. If there were an election to day - she would be a shoe in. Let's hope it stays that way through 2016. Electing any republican candidate at this stage in our economic evolution would be totally disastrous for this country. Thanks for your additional input.

J.Ewall:

thanks for your additional comments as well. The GOP is clutching at straws in trying so desperately to find, or create scandals involving Pres. Obama. But these fallacious attacks only seem to make them look even more foolish than they already are.

Again, this hub is not about Pres. Obama, it is about what the GOP is overtly doing to harm the America people just to destroy the President - and their motives for doing so are certainly not very well hidden.

The media coverage of political junk also has many negative effects on both parties. I don't think they favor one party more than the other - with the exception of Fox news network, who seem to be living in an alternative universe that is totally devoid of common sense, rationality, or logic.


Arthur Bundy profile image

Arthur Bundy 3 years ago from Colorado Springs

d.william:

I copied my comment, this comment here from another hub.

I spoke last night about watching Hannity introduce a book by Mark Levin. This book:

"The Liberty Amendments" by Mark Levin.

Chapter 5 "Two Amendments To Limit Federal Spending And Taxing"

I am going to focus at the moment on "Taxing".

SECTION 1: Congress shall not collect more than 15 percent of a person's annual income, from whatever source derived. "Person" shall include natural and legal persons.

He does not focus directly on what he means by "legal persons".

This link should provide a clear picture of what is meant by "legal person".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_personhood

Since at least Trustees of Dartmouth College v. Woodward – 17 U.S. 518 (1819), the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized corporations as having the same rights as natural persons to contract and to enforce contracts. In Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad - 118 U.S. 394 (1886), the reporter noted in the headnote to the opinion that the Chief Justice began oral argument by stating, "The court does not wish to hear argument on the question whether the provision in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which forbids a State to deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, applies to these corporations. We are all of the opinion that it does."[1] While the headnote is not part of the Court's opinion and thus not precedent, two years later, in Pembina Consolidated Silver Mining Co. v. Pennsylvania - 125 U.S. 181 (1888), the Court clearly affirmed the doctrine, holding, "Under the designation of 'person' there is no doubt that a private corporation is included [in the Fourteenth Amendment]. Such corporations are merely associations of individuals united for a special purpose and permitted to do business under a particular name and have a succession of members without dissolution." [2] This doctrine has been reaffirmed by the Court many times since.

If Mr. Levin's ideas were to be adopted and amended into the Constitution, it would no longer be "a government of the people, by the people, and for the people". It would be ..."a government of the natural and legal person (i.e. corporation), by the natural and legal person (i.e. corporation), and for the natural and legal person (i.e. corporation)".

"We the People" would become..."We the natural and legal person (i.e. corporation) of the United States of America..."

Although I have not quite finished this book, it is this idea of establishing into the Constitution the corporate person as equal to an individual that scares me.

Corporate America has been quietly seizing control of the government going back to the adoption of the 14 Amendment. As I have stated, the fear President Eisenhower expressed when he spoke of the Military-Industrial-Complex is now a reality.

Corporate America has so deeply entrenched itself into our Federal Government through the practice of privatizing major aspects of the logistical support for the military, that it has for itself the ability to manipulate and through lobby efforts control of the legislative process.

To follow the amendment concepts found in this book thus far, the only people who would actually benefit from them are the "legal person" under the law Corporate America.

This is so true, and extremely frightening.

This is why i cannot begin to understand how the lay person in the GOP, or the tea party, can blindly following their party when their party no longer represents "the American people".

Can they be so blind as to not see what the Republican party has become in reality?

They are definitely moving more rapidly into a position of total control of this country, state by state, and by their obvious control / influence over the Federal Supreme Court, and the majority of politicians in Washington.

Again, this article is not about President Obama.

If you are looking for validation of your claims, you might want to find more like minded folks on hub pages than i am.

Your videos are not proof of anything. They are taken out of context, and snippets are used, with clever editing, to try and prove something that is simply not true.

What i will say to you now is that it is of little relevance to be harboring the fanatical views of the "birthers" group that Mr. Trump also belongs to.

That being said, what Mr. Obama did say was that he comes from a background of Muslims, but he was converted to Christianity. In that vein he understands the Muslim mentality better than you, or Mr. Trump, and others.

The birth certificate thing has already been laid to rest, and yet it seems to be something that some people try to resurrect in order to keep the hatred alive.

I doubt very much that Mr. Obama has ever 'banned" any video. He does not have enough power to do that. With the internet being as vast as it is, one can never successfully 'ban' anything from it.

So, please respect my views on this particular article. If you care to discuss what is written in this article, that is OK with me, but President Obama bashing on this particular hub is inappropriate. I have already afforded you more leeway than i do most people, but my patience is wearing thin.
