This is one time in my life where I hope to be absolutely incorrect regarding what I’m about to say. Once I heard about President Trump’s budget proposal, I immediately thought, ” We’re definitely in storming of the Bastille territory here.” This man expects to allow millions to lose access to healthcare, food, housing, jobs, funding for economic opportunities on top of seizing citizens’ land for the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines, a border wall which won’t prevent illegal immigration, which US taxpayers will have to foot the bill for and still thinks he’ll be the “law and order” president? If Trump’s budget goes through, he will not have enough secret service, police, or national guard for the level of resistance which would be present on the streets.
To think the American people would go to bed one night living in a free society then wake up the very next day in a corrupt, third world country and not revolt far beyond anything we’ve ever seen in modern history is purely wishful thinking but quite possibly a dare. Further, Trump’s budget could send crime through the roof, which would allow him to create the dictatorial police state he’s always wanted. My spirit has been restless and disturbed since Trump took office. I often shudder to think Western civilization may end completely under his presidency. Rome fell for some of the same reasons which could also be our demise. Maybe it’s time to hold up the mirror now.
