-- “If the white man wants to live in peace, he can live in peace. Treat all men alike. Give them all the same law. Give them all the same chance to live and grow. All men were made by the Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers.” Chief Joseph, Washington D.C., 1879.
I realize this statement is a bit beyond the scope of President Trump, however. To my recollection, the last time a national leader took over a national government was Saddam Hussain and for what cause? Aside from a few other issues, his main intent was for Palestinian freedom, a cause decades overlooked by prejudice from the victors of WWII. He later lost his life as a consequence. Now again, a national leader has taken over a national government by a dictator and for what cause? This time it’s for the prevention of beleaguered peoples from south of the U.S. border entering the divided States of America, in the process of protecting such people from the U.S. Constitution's declaration to protect “We The People” from discrimination, as freedom of the people, by the people and for the people, to empower all the people with certain inalienable rights in the pursuit of happiness.
Perhaps Jesus said it best, “Love thy neighbor and your enemies as yourself,” a declaration of the motive for civilization which unfortunately is incomprehensible to so many politicians. Who is/are, “We The People?” We The People are those persons who count their blessings instead of dollars, the dollar being the modality of separation of the people called greed. I realize Trump’s main issue for the border wall is to deter the criminal element from entering the U.S. However, does he recall RFK and the Mafia which eventually took his life? Dealing with issues as they are is the role of leadership. Immigration reform is a big issue as a challenge for the people. Who shall come forth? Jesus already did but who listens?
