My thoughts on the events this week in America

American_Flag_&_Crying_Bald_Eagle_Patriotic

Sitting here thinking about everything that has happened in our country over the last few days. I have cried tears of sympathy, frustration and anger all at once. My sympathy goes out to everyone who has lost a loved one in the shootings that have taken place. I am frustrated that our country is falling apart because of racial tension and hatred of law enforcement officers.

And I’m angry that Hillary was given a free pass by the FBI for putting our nation’s security at risk, putting CIA operatives in danger, for sitting on her ass and doing nothing to secure our embassy in Benghazi, even though Chris Stevens sent her 600 emails requesting that security be beefed up. FBI Director Comey laid out all the ways she is guilty of violating laws put in place to protect Top Secret information, admits she set up a personal email before she was even sworn in as Sec. Of State with every intention of using this email for State Department emails, admits that her legal team destroyed over 30,000 emails, admits she lied, admits she shared confidential information with people who did not have security clearance, yet then says he doesn’t think the evidence warrants indictment!!! The hearing in Congress was NOT a Republican witch hunt. It is about what’s legal and what’s right. She broke the law, plain and simple. I have read the section of law in question. Nowhere does it say intent is required, just the proof of “GROSS NEGLIGENCE”… but let’s think a minute…. she burned and destroyed her daily calendars and emails…. doesn’t this show intent? Why else would she do this? She knew she was violating the law!

We have a Presidential candidate who has lied, cheated, stolen her way through her entire political life, who is most likely going to be the Democratic nominee. We have another one who wants to usher in socialism, whose supporters have incited violence and spewed hatred on anyone who disagrees with his belief system. Any history buff can tell you from Russian, Italian and German history, socialism is NOT in the best interests of the common man in America. We have another candidate who is being called a racist because he wants to deport ILLEGAL immigrants and build a wall to prevent others from coming in illegally. There is a right way to become an American citizen. People have been doing it for over 200 years.

People, ALL lives matter. We need to stop the hatred and violence. Until we do, nothing will be resolved. Only more lives lost. This is becoming a not-so-civil civil war. We are being spoonfed hatred and lies by the media. We have a President who, rather than give his condolences to the families and victims in Dallas, speaks of gun control. Guns don’t kill people, evil people kill people.

I never dreamed that our country could become so divided. It makes me heartsick. We are better than this. We are ALL Americans. We are ALL human.

I fear for our future. Worse, I fear for our children’s future.

Let me know what you think! :)
