My Focus On Politics

As I Lived In Denial and Isolation!

A sample from Book 2

You go back and review the past 10 years or so. The following is from Book 2 in My 12-Book Series. It was part of my denial stage when American politics took a front seat to what was happening beneath the surface.

“Writing about history, much less history in rhyme, was never my dream but something deep inside redirected my journey.

Throughout history, I’ve realized, poems live on pass the generations who wrote them. It is also our reality that America’s younger generations rather music than reading books. If you listen to their music—not just hear but listen—you’d realize that each verse is in rhyme. Lyrics are poetry. With this in mind, and as a former teacher, writing history in rhyme makes sense.

America’s history—why it came to be and how—is the most important information that every American citizen, as well as every person wishing to be an American citizen, should fully understand.

Today, as American politics play out, it is plain to see that America’s history is not studied enough in her schools.

When a person who is elected to lead the American people says on national TV that the United States Constitution consists of outdated ideals, then something is seriously wrong. When the American public elects someone to lead their country solely on basic characteristics as the color of their skin, then something is seriously wrong.

When Americans elect someone to lead their country who has a history of associating with people who hate America, people who’s primary objective is to transform—destroy—America, then something is seriously wrong. When the general American public refuses to even acknowledge or care about what their leaders are doing, then something is seriously wrong.

To see, so obviously, the lack of American pride and strength that its people once had, confuses me. To hear her leader go around the world and proclaim that America is arrogant; to hear that her leader refuses to abide by the oath he had sworn—to protect and defend her States from enemies foreign and domestic—shatters me.

America is a country—not a world or a universe. Like every other country, America consist of people who should openly stand up for her and defend her Constitution at all cost. I’m dumb-founded when I see people who claim her as their county and, at the same time, criticize everything she stands for. I’m dumb-founded when people fly the American Flag in their yard or wear it on their lapel and, at the same time, openly condemn the very people who gave them their freedom. This says to me that they haven’t learned the meaning behind our Flag or the Seal of our country.

From the book Our Flag published in 1989 by the House of Representatives…

On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress passed a resolution authorizing a committee to devise a seal for the United States of America. This mission, designed to reflect the Founding Fathers’ beliefs, values, and sovereignty of the new Nation, did not become a reality until June 20, 1782. In heraldic devices, such as seals, each element has a specific meaning. Even colors have specific meanings. The colors red, white, and blue did not have meanings for The Stars and Stripes when it was adopted in 1777. However, the colors in the Great Seal did have specific meanings. Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress, reporting to Congress on the Seal, stated: The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.

Also, this from a book about the flag published in 1977 by the House of Representatives…

The star is a symbol of the heavens and the Divine goal to which man has aspired from time immemorial; the stripe is symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun.

These proclaimed Americans have never experienced life that isn’t free. They’ve always had whatever they wanted: Food, clothes, shelter—the ability to own things and speak their minds. But at the same time, they rally to have those very rights stripped from them one at a time.

They haven’t studied America’s history or the words that her founders warned—that if too much leeway is given to a government, they will slowly take more and more without asking its people….”
