|As I watch protests in America today, I'm reminded
of a time of death and turmoil in the 1960's and 70's.
A time when the progressive movement, in this
country, had to drag conservatives kicking and
screaming into the future. A future we Democrats
made for this country. Not the Republicans, nor the
Libertarians, or the Federalists, but the Democrats.
(The Pee party was just a tinkle in someone's
britches, at the time.)
I tell you now, many of you will become martyrs in
the process of securing the liberties and freedoms
that our constitution promised in 1787. The
conservatives, libertarians and federalist, all different
branches of the republican party, have done nothing
to move our country forward, in recent memory. At
every fork in the road, the conservatives have
resisted change, bucked when they should have
weaved and been at the beckoned call of the rich
and powerful. All the while, suppressing the
freedoms and monetary aspirations of the poor and
working class in America. They have been bought
and paid for by the rich.
Think we don't need immigrates in this country?
America was founded on the backs of foreigners,
the poor and the destitute. Our sweat, our blood is
payment for that piece of paper signed, a long
We understand we can not just open the flood
gates and let just anyone in, but a fair and judicious
process of migration must prevail. Otherwise, our
country will reach a point of "Zero Growth." Not
enough people to fill jobs or do the work necessary
to keep the country running. And to think of it, not
enough people to man the military or the border
patrol. Wouldn't that be a mess?
But unfortunately, we live in a time when we are
hampered by a despot, who thinks no matter what he
does, he is right and everyone else can suck an egg.
Can you imagine what would happen if he was king!
God forbid! But every once in a while, America
needs a physical and Trump is it.
So have faith, fight the good fight and remember
the progressives that have gone before you, FDR,
The Kennedys, King, and many, many others.
Good Luck. Keep your eye on the prize.
And We're Glad to Have You Aboard!..
