LaBoyteaux 2020–We hold these truths

I don’t do anger well.  And I suppose I’ve become sort of numb to the almost daily racist and hateful statements from our President.  So I find myself repeating, over and over the most important words in our Declaration of Independence, ” We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”  This is leadership and the foundation of our nation.

Vice President Pence is fond of comparing President Trump to Ronald Reagan.  Hogwash.  I cannot remember Reagan saying a mean or hateful thing about anyone.  I do remember a couple things he said.  “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”  and about immigrants to our southern boarder, “these are good people” even as we need a secure boarder.

The congress is preparing a resolution of censure for President Trump’s most recent racist mouth off.  Rightly so.
