You! Yes. You! Reading this post.
I hate you.
You made me stub my toe this morning. Now my whole day is ruined. How dare you! My foot hurts! I can’t walk right now! It’s all your fault! How dare you. You evil fucking c*** b*tch a$$ privileged idiot!
Sound familiar? This is what people do to the current President of the United States of America.
While he was sitting in the White House taking phone calls from urgent governors, dealing with national security, pushing paper work for NASA, watching the News and planning the corse of this nation, people were looting and destroying stores, and somehow it was his fault because he was the one who looted and destroyed things and caused people to do it. Supposedly he was the one who killed George Floyd. He was the one who spread the corona virus. He was the one who fired you. He was the one who killed your baby, broke into your car, etc.
If we were in England, and this behavior was against the Queen of England, the participator would be imprisoned for life for treason. If we were part of a native African tribe and someone said these things and participated in this kind of behavior to a chief they would executed.
It is too much fault to put on one man. He’s just one man compared to the hundred of state officials who decreed state wide mandates, to the hundreds of bad cops, to the hundreds of thugs and gangs, to the thousands of terrorists and murders, to the 328m people. Have you ever tried to convince 328 million people with all different cultures, educations, ages and backgrounds? Have you ever tried to adhere to 328 million people’s voices, concerns and needs? Have you ever gotten 100,000 death threats a day? Have you ever had to be followed around by 50+ security officers, constantly looking over your shoulder for someone to kill you? Have you ever tried to lead a 328 million and somehow unify them to see the bigger picture and do what’s best for the majority? Have you ever tried to pay of $23 Trillion worth of debt? The amount of things a president has to deal with on a daily basis would break an ordinary person. I know I couldn’t do it. Plus, I wouldn’t want to. I can barely deal with my 20 haters. The amount of things that a president gets blamed for when he had nothing to do with it or caused it and then because he hears and sees has to deal with it like it’s his fault is mortifying.
Now many of you know that I didn’t like Obama one bit, (I literally burst into tears when I found out he was elected) but I’ve never met him. I don’t know what he’s like, if we would be friends. These things I absolutely know about his administration: he was handed down issues of state, as well as a economy on the rise that suddenly plummeted, he was told to downplay a virus and terrorist action, and then encouraged to bomb innocents and tried to tax people to pay for illegals. I didn’t like G. Bush either! but I would never disrespect either of them because they were presidents. If I saw President Obama on the side of the road with a broken down car, I would stop and assist him and treat him with respect like I would to a neighbor. If I met him casually, I would great him respectfully. If he asked if I voted for him, I would say “no, sir, I didn’t. Nor did I approve of some of things that happened during your administration, but thank you for your service to the country and I’m sorry for the hate you and your family have had to deal with”.
Their position demands my respect just like I would bow before a king or shake Dwayne Johnson’s hand as a celebrity. Maybe it’s a matter of opinion, but it used to be that Americans were civilized enough to be respectful even if critical of those in leadership. They teach it in the military. Used to teach it in schools. It was Mr President. Yes sir. No ma’am. I don’t know Trump personally. I don’t know what he’s like or if we would even be friends. But I respect him for his position even if I radically disagree with his decisions. But when I do disagree I don’t through a temper tantrum and calm him names, I go out and vote. I peaceful protest. I research into what he is dealing with and seeing. I listen to several different sides and opinions. I nod or shake my head. But I’m not out to call him disrespect him and treat him in a way that I myself wouldn’t want to be treated.

A slogan is meant to call on people to work for a cause, not define a single man. A motto is a short sentence or phrase that defines a people groups ideals.
You blame my president. I blame you.
Arm yourselves with justice by being first just yourself.
The system won’t change unless you first change.
America isn’t great because we all don’t act like it. We are just human.
Keep trekking, Patriots.
