Like those shipboard officials who told the passengers that the Titanic was unsinkable, it appears that some of our politicians are saying the same thing about the United States…
Among the most essential skills of a politician are ...
To create name recognition with their voting constituency.
To attract media attention by providing revenue-producing content that attracts an audience.
To sell themselves to the funding sources and special interests that power their existence.
To promote the party ideology and brand unless one self-styles, at least in public, as a "maverick."
To create a plausible explanation for the reality we are experiencing.
Simultaneous spin a story into a horror tale that demands urgency of action and drastic public policy interventions but allows for an optimistic outcome.
Deliver all messages with assurance and certitude, even if the politician is ignorant of the specific facts and has little touch with reality.
Have an excuse why their prior predictions or actions did not work out as expected.
Be shameless and be able to "power through" embarrassing moments that would shame or cripple a more moral person.
Other than that, they can lie, cheat, and steal with impunity as few voting constituents are angry enough to hold them accountable for their egregious actions.
How else can one explain the continued incumbency of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and a host of other like Representatives Adam Schiff (D-CA), Maxine Waters (D-CA), and those who are un-American progressive socialist democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and turncoats like Mitt Romney (R-UT)?
How else can one look at the corruption and scandal swirling about the Obama Administration and claim that former President Barack Obama knew nothing -- ignoring the fact that these matters were covered by his advisors, Daily Presidential Brief, and endlessly by the news media. Like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, it appears that he is shameless and able to "power through" embarrassing moments that would shame or cripple a more moral person.
It is time to ratchet up your anger over what our elected officials, mostly governors, and mayors, have done to our nation. It is time to vote these miscreants, mostly progressive socialist democrats, out of office.
It is time to condemn both parties who have provided a choice between worse and worst.
If you do not believe the United States is unsinkable, consider what happened to the Titanic or the Roman Empire.
We are so screwed.
