Moral Compass

img_0274It’s quite clear to anyone who has one, that our president lacks any sort of moral compass. So do many, if not most, of the Republicans in Congress.

Donald Trump’s true north is whatever benefits him and his family, regardless of who or how mant get hurt along the way. How else can you explain how poor and middle class Americans are being thrown overboard while the rich and large corporations are reaping huge benefits from the corruption that has engulfed the executive and legislative branches of our government?

Ultra rich Republican donors now control the government of the United States. Their almighty dollars that they contribute to conservative causes are transforming this country into an autocratic theocracy.

But what is even more shocking to me are those who claim the loudest that they live their lives by the word of God. Evangelical Christians are people who are committed to the Christian gospel message that Jesus is the the savior of humanity and who promote the “good news” about Jesus.

But these very religious, outwardly pious people who literally consider themselves to be holier than thou, have tossed away their moral compass in favor of political expediency.

They were quick to abandon their morality in order to justify electing a thrice-married, real estate and failed casino mogul who bragged about grabbing women by the pussy and who rarely goes to church.

And then they reached an even higher level of hypocrisy with their staunch support and avid defense of the then candidate for Senate, accused child molester Roy Moore.

There is no doubt that the right in America, both political and religious, has abandoned their moral compass. I wonder if they can ever recover it.


Written for today’s one-word prompt, “compass.”

    Trump presidency, I believe has open the true face of many people. Those celebrities who chanted, they will give up citizenship. The big internet corporations who remained silent on the culling of Net Neutrality. The broadcasting networks who succeeded in promoting his hate campaign. It feels America nows stands for Crony Capitalism. I believe the damage is so widespread that even when Dim-o-crats will replace these Tyrants and Despotic Ripping-public(can).. They will blindly ‘follow the trend’.

      I, too, wonder if the damages done to my country can ever be rectified or if we are witnessing firsthand the rapid fall of the United States.

      They can’t even see their own hypocrisy. I think they no longer ask themselves “what would Jesus do?” or even care what Jesus would do.

      these are the reasons the alt-right have bunkers – they planned what’s going down.
