Given the knowable facts about the president, other than the reasons so frequently given for his disregard for the Constitution and his desire for some kind of fundamental transformation of the American system, is he even claiming to be an American citizen or did he want to be president? He is not making things better, if polls are any indication and he is apparently now going to get the legal attention he so rightly deserves.
It is the liberal defense of the right and practice to be wrong which is the greatest danger to the future of the country. Laws exist because of the character of human nature. Organized crime and systemic and systematic corruption exist because advantage is gained in gaming the system, betting that human nature will opt for advantage rather than equal justice and opportunity by respect for the law and the order which it is designed to afford. Dealing with the government, the military services or the VA requires a recognition of the character of human nature in a secular-humanist context that is different from a personal, familial or religious context. Again, it is basic moral and ethical principles which are violated and which violation creates victims, a parallel of causal policy and effective consequence having far too high a premium!
If inexperience has been a trademark of this administration, it will facilitate its goal of ruining the country. They are certainly on a roll.
I much prefer to believe that he is a corrupt, conniving liberal than that he is a myopic, doddering, old fool. Neither, however, is an enviable position or characterization.
