I listened to the inaugural address by our new President so I could draw my own conclusions. Then I listened briefly to some CBS commentators’ remarks. My take is a bit different. I am a swing voter, not particularly loyal to one party over the other; I am more interested in the human factor.
Our President did paint a rather dark image of our country’s current condition. Facts. He spread the blame around, not targeting one party or one administration, but zooming in on corrupt self-serving politicians.
Vigilant voters’ voices elected Trump, who is determined to lighten up the picture of Anerica’s current status and spread the benefits to American citizens first and foremost. One commentator labeled his statements as popularist isolationism. My spin-“Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Voters must remain vigilant. Passivity has been the enemy. Passivity intensifies the power corrupt elected officials abuse. Passivity has too long loosened the reigns of the ones leading the way.
Passivity permeates American society. Corruption paints enlarging shadows on our local canvases, too. Continued vigilance is required on all levels-institutional, city, county, state and national. It is time for the eradication of personal agendas among elected officials.
We shall see.
