     If America is to have a legitimate government, corruption must be eradicated and honesty must be restored.  Our forefathers warned about the major flaw in a democracy.  Democracy is a form of government that has an open door for corruption when citizens do not participate and hold elected officials accountable for their actions.

     If there is one lesson that should have been learned from the Donald Trump administration it is; if a democracy is to work for all the people, all the people must work for the democracy.

     If legitimacy is to be restored to American government the trail of corruption must be followed. If the trail leads to Democrats, Republicans, members of Congress, or the President, they must be removed from office and the consequences must be administered. In order for a democracy to be an effective government, it must be a government free of corruption, and as sad as it is to say, American democracy is riddled with corruption.    

     Democrats differ from Republicans on several major issues, but one of the major issues in is in the area of corruption. We firmly believe if   a Democrat is guilty of corruption, he or she must be removed from office and locked up.  We do not, and may I repeat, we do not protect corrupt politicians. We firmly believe in order to protect the integrity of government that no elected official is above the law, and should not be treated as such. 

     One of the saddest experiences of my life has been to watch some elected officials manipulate the truth in order to protect crooked politicians.  Never in my lifetime would I have dreamed that I would live to see the day when the leadership of the Christian Church would stoop so low as to protect the evil actions of corruption in government.

     I have been asked several times, why do I care about America? Why can’t I just continue living and at some time follow the path of the old Indian who never died but just faded away.  I’ll tell you why I care. I care because I want every child, black or white, straight or gay, to have the same opportunities I had. 

     Every person deserves the right to improve their living conditions.  It is very important that America remain the land of opportunity. And every time a corrupt politician is elected to office it undermines the opportunities of America’s working class.

     History proves over and over again that when an oligarch (a very rich leader with political influence) gets control of a government it takes nothing less than a war to restore majority rule. It would be well for Americans to seriously consider the consequences before placing the US government in the hands of a small group of wealthy men known as an oligarchy.

     At the present, the road the Republicans are traveling is leading America in the direction of “rich man rule.” That is why the election in November is one of the most important ones in American history. Do not, and may I repeat, do not take the upcoming election for granted and stay home. Voters’ staying at home is the reason we have such a corrupt government today.

     There is something that every American best take seriously. It is an absolute fact that there are elected governmental leaders who are not on the side of America.  Every time they have been put to the test they have taken the side of Russia over America. This is not “an alternative fact,” this is not “fake news,” but this is a fact that has been displayed before our very eyes on several occasions.  Blind eyed Americans who cannot see this are in for the surprise of their lives. There is as much difference between Communism and Democracy as there is between night and day.  And I want it well understood that as a student of governments I stand on the side of democracy.

     Let’s make one thing perfectly clear; Communism is an authoritative form of government. Vladimir Putin is a thug, authoritative, dictator.  Xi Jinping is an authoritative dictator who will rule China for life.  Kim Jong UN is a ruthless, dictator, who had killed thousands of his own people and allowed millions to die from starvation. These dictators according to Donald Trump “are very nice people.” 

     There has never been a time in America’s history when it is more important to remove liars and communists from governmental leadership positions, as it is today.  The turn out of the BLUE WAVE in November will determine the future of America’s democratic process.

I have been told that this is not a good time to publish a book because the only books being read are those about political figures. If there should be an experience between you and Donald Trump you might have a bestseller on you hands? However, some people are reading more refreshing books like GOOD MORNING CLASS. I have been told that this book could make the rounds if it gets in the hands of the right people.

If you have read the book, as some have, and you like it, why not tell at least one person? Word of mouth is the best advertising known to mankind, and numbers do matter to publishers in considering future contracts.

Most people waste five or six dollars ever few minutes without having anything to show for it. Why not purchase a nice, shiny, book that at least you can hold in your hand. Or better yet, you can pass it on to someone else. I argue all the time that a book was never meant to sit on a self and collect dust. Good books were meant to be read.

This book offers several possibilities. With this book you can pretend that you are the teacher directing the classroom discussion. You can imagine how you would answer questions asked by students. Plus, you can judge your own reactions when presented with negative accusations.

Chances are if you do not buy this book I will not starve to death because I have enough good friends who will feed me if I’m hungry. Also, the chances are if you purchase this book it will not change my lifestyle because I am pretty well set in my ways.  But there is value for you in reading this book. The book is exciting and informative and it will present you with several moments of happiness. Now let’s get serious, where else can you buy a couple of hours of happiness with just a few bucks?

The early morning parade of thoughts that march through my mind leaves some troubling contents. The political situation in America is very disturbing. It is concerning as to the great divide that has separated social America. It is even more disturbing as to the divide that has separated American families. Plus, it is alarming to think that the divide is on the verge of spilling over into the streets.

It is upsetting to know that this divide is caused by inept political leadership. It is frightening to see political leaders demonstrate the mindset of a playground bully. America faces a dilemma and that dilemma is in the mindset of a bully who says if he cannot control the playhouse, he will destroy the playground and the playhouse.

It concerns me, that as a retired educator, even in my best efforts, I took part in a system that has failed the American people. While educators were attempting to create and teach in a diverse environment, someone or something outside the school was doing a better job educating children that there is honor in social division.  At home, at church, on the playground, in the social clubs, at the sports arena, or on the Internet, someone was teaching children that it is okay to hate individuals based on skin color, religion, or sexual orientation. Apparently that has been an affective learning process.

As a result, this is what we have in America today. A survey shows that nearly one third or 28% of Americans over the age of 50 have not read a book in the last year. Two thirds of Americans cannot name the three branches of government. Over 50% cannot name one Supreme Court Justice. 50% of ninth graders could not name the capital of their state. 

Believe it or not, this is exactly what the politicians want.  World history proves that ignorant people are easier to control. America’s political system has reached levels of corruption that is unbelievable to most world leaders, yet this corruption is not recognized by many Americans.

It isn’t a matter of putting lipstick on a pig, but it is the serious attempt of putting lipstick on EVIL. The moral decay of America is not from the gay community or from women who want the legal right to control their bodies, but it is the moral decay of elected leaders who have about as much morality as can be put on the head of a pin.

A government that has pushed honesty out the door has a limited lifespan. There has never been a time in American history when dishonesty ruled the hall of Congress and controlled the White House as it does today. When a society reaches the place that the majority of the population will believe anything a political or religious leader says, dooms day is in the near future.  

Another day ---- another morning ---- the parade of thoughts continues. Capitalism is an addiction that uses wealth to generate hatred, prejudice, and selfishness. All of these characteristics are detrimental to the art of successful living.  The evil that is associated with wealth nearly makes wealth evil. Although, the wealthy will say it is not the riches that are evil, but it is the way the riches are used that creates evil.

A form of evil that is used regularly in the political arena is when the wealthy are able to buy politicians who pass laws that are harmful to the poor, but yet allow the rich to become richer. When a political leader feathers his or her own nest, and allows a child to die of starvation in the streets of any city, it is the lowest form of evil known to mankind. This form of evil is so low that devil himself refuses to us it.

The evil that is associated with America’s political system is at an all time high. It is an evil that has spread from the political arena into the so-called Christian Church. American Christianity is at the lowest level in history.  More people are turning away from organized religion than ever before, and the reason is very clear; American Christianity has joined forces with the devil and is in full support of evil activities.
