Today’s Lie, One of Many

Another day, another lie in the form of a Tweet from the leader of the so-called free world…

I’m not sure about you, but I have personally yet to see anything come out of this current administration to warrant such high praise.

The administrations of Washington and Jefferson set the foundation for our Democratic Republic. They led the way in revolting against a tyrannical king in order to usher in a new world order in which the people hold the power. However, our current President seems to enjoy power and abhor any criticism, much like the tyrannical king we chose to separate ourselves from so long ago.

President Lincoln and his administration held the union together throughout the only civil war this country has seen in its short history and ended the practice of American slavery. Rather than bring us together, the words and actions of the President has done more to drive us apart than ever before.

President Theodore Roosevelt protected and preserved countless acres of national forests, wildlife sanctuaries, and federal game reserves. He and his administration was dedicated to prosecuting monopolies and providing every American with a “square deal” that would improve their quality of life. President Franklin Roosevelt and his administration implemented the New Deal program that helped to pull the United States out of the Great Depression and navigated the beginnings of World War II. The Truman administration presided over the end of World War II and the dropping of the atomic bomb.

The Eisenhower administration gave birth to the American interstate highway system, sponsored and signed the Civil Rights Bill of 1957, balanced the budget three times, ended the Korean War, and kept America at peace during a volatile period of the Cold War.

Frankly, Trump and his administration already receive far more credit than they deserve from the mainstream media outlets. Too often are the lies of his administration overlooked. Too frequently are their deplorable actions not met with any consequences. This country deserves more from its highest office. It deserves more from our elected officials that continue to serve without condemning such blatant disregard for the sanctity of the office or the well-being of the American people. It deserves patriots that are willing to spend their time and lend their voice to a political revolution to take our power back.
