I always thought Dixieland was just a form of jazz. After the years of Donald Trump, today’s Dixie is just a place of darkness. It is a place of closed minds wrapped in ignorance. It is a place of small steps towards the light. It has chosen Donald Trump and it matters to the entire world.
It is not just Canadians and Mexican’s who fear Trump’s return. He cares nothing for Canada. It is his place of only one hotel in his world-wide game of Monopoly. He is titillated by his pal Putin in Russia. He would abandon Ukraine. He would have the might of America stand down. He would abandon America’s friends in his admiration for petty dictators and brutal regimes.
Trump builds walls, not bridges. He cares little in a country of guns, that are used to kill children. Trump Land is a place where people shoot first, alibi later. Never knock on a stranger’s door. The criminal National Rifle Association lobbies hard for more guns instead of better control of guns.
It is hard to explain why Trump wants the hollow victory he can get at the polls. He has little to no respect for America’s Republican Party. They are his toilet tissue, of brief use and function. He uses lies about those who oppose him. Why bother with truth when lies titillate and deceive. He is not fit to rule. He does not care for people. He wants subjects, not their problems. It is all about him.
He laughs at the charges against him in New York. The effort for justice will have the same effect as the wasted shells fired on Fort Sumter in the First American Civil War. In Dixie, they manage to forget that while the South captured Fort Sumter, the South also lost that war.
America is a country deeply divided. There seems to be little effort between the red and blue states to seek peace. Yet peace can be achieved. Compromise is possible.
All it takes is leadership. There was a lot of admiration for Liz Cheney—a Republican who put truth first. In a population of over 300 million people, there have got to be peace makers. They deserve support.
