Preamble: We the people of the United States in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure the 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.
From the previous discussion with all that was said, the combined objectives of our American Constitution, as expressed through its preamble are at risk.
This current pandemic has taught us many lessons. Trump is unfit to represent the preambles objectives as expressed through our Constitution. The framers, and notably, James Madison, perhaps the principal architect of our Constitution, believed that the Constitution protected the objectives of the peoples preamble through the divisions of power. Three equal powers but separate in their identities as each governs.
All of that is an antithesis to Trump. And most of his Republican colleagues are content to agree with trump. Perhaps because they object governments obligation to provide for the people General Welfare.
Perhaps that is best seen through the millions of furloughed Americans, who lost their employee based health insurance. Which strongly suggests, that the nation needs government provided health insurance. Paid for by the nations corporate conglomerates. Which would include unemployment compensation equal to their salaries before being fired!
Laboring Americans are more than commodities to be used for profits and discarded when their usefulness ends. There would be no corporate profits without the sweat produced by laboring Americans. That would include the sweat generated by the non-citizenry work force feeding corporate profits. Who, in many instances are paid under the table.
The problem isn’t with most Democrats because they are the people advocating for the peoples General Welfare! Republicans label such people as socialist, which they are. But they are not Communist as always alleged by Republicans. In fact, they are Constitutional governors! And, as was Jesus clearly picturesque through illustrative ways of the Samaritan. A certain man journeyed and fell among Republicans, who abused him and beat him. Leaving him half dead. A true Trumper saw him, and crossed to the other side of the street. As did a jurist, who did the same. But a certain Democrat passed by and acted compassionately. He bandaged his wounds. And provided transportation and brought him to a hotel. There he took care of him, and the next day, as he was departing he paid the hotel clerk. Saying to him, “Take care of him; and whatever you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.” Jesus asked, “So which of the three was a neighbor to him, who fell among the thieves? Someone answered, “The democrat, who acted mercifully.” Jesus responded, “Go and do likewise!” (cp. Luke 10:30-37).
A nation in trouble on several fronts. In need of leadership, who will attend to the peoples welfare for themselves and their posterity.
Trump, and his Republican hooligans are running in the opposite direction. Leaving Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, as the nations hope. Frankly, Biden isn’t the person the nation needs. Biden represents the same old talk. That’ll leave, We the People without a standard bearer for change on all fronts.
Our only hope is that Biden won’t have enough first round ballots to secure the nomination. Allowing the convention delegates the opportunity to nominate a more suitable candidate. A long shot but anything is better than Joe Biden.
Sure would like to attend that convention and deliver this discussion in expanded stinging speech rhetoric. Our hope must come from the collective voices of We the People! To much is at stake to allow traditionalists to determine our future. Make no mistake, Biden represents democratic traditionalism.
