In my lifetime there have been 10 Presidents of the United States. I have never shown any one of them the discourtesy that people today are showing to President Trump.
We have had bad presidents. We have had good presidents. We have had ineffective presidents. Of the 10 presidents in my lifetime, I would rank 2 of them as good. 1 as ineffective. 6 of them bad for various reasons. And 1 of them was able to established diplomatic ties with communist China that we still have today. Preventing a terrible global war from happening if we never had such ties.
There were 4 Democratic and 6 Republican presidents. 4 served two full terms. 2 served only one term. 3 served one term and a partial second term. And the current president’s full tenure isn’t known at this time.
But even with the 6 presidents I would consider to be bad ones I have never called any one of them a P.O.S. As people call President Trump.
To call another human being this term takes a level of hatred that I cannot fathom or even understand.
Maybe some of histories most infamous rulers could possibly earn this description. The likes of King Herod, Nero, Caligula, Pol Pot, Stalin, Hitler, and other socialists. These men were vile and evil to the core. But they murdered thousands and millions of their own people and others as well.
But the United States has never had a President at this level of evil. To call our current President a P.O.S. is vile in itself. And it speaks volumes about the character of the person using the term instead of the President.
America is the greatest country on Earth. We have freedoms that even the rest of the so-called “free world” cannot understand. We can disagree with our President and the polices of the Administration and the whole of Congress for that matter. And we have done so since the time of our founding.
We used to do these things civilly without violence that now infects our homes, families, schools, and places of employment. We need to return to our roots and be that shining city on the hill again.
