Movies, sometimes they’re so much better than Real Life.
The Lion in The Wizard of Oz acted like he was the toughest animal in the jungle. But really he was just a coward and a bully who lacked the Courage to do the right thing.
The Scarecrow was so full of hay, he couldn’t think straight and all he wanted was a Brain.
The Tin Man knew how empty and hollow he was. So his lifelong desire was to have a Heart.
Movies usually have a happy ending. Not so with Real Life, especially when America elected president a Reality-Star empty suit who cares more about his image than he does about America.
Donald Trump doesn’t have the Brains to know he doesn’t have a Heart. Nor the Courage to seek it.
When Trump finally capitulated and signed an Executive Order to end the humanity crisis he created, he did so because of “how it looked,” not because it was inhumane, cruel and damaging to the fragile lives of innocent children and their parents.
So after lying about the crisis he created, blaming Democrats and saying there was nothing he could do about it, #DishonestDon responded to Republicans concerned about the November 2018 midterms. He signed an Executive Order reversing the policy of separating immigrant children from their parents.
But in typical Trump fashion, it was a Pyrrhic victory (Look it up millennials. You haven’t forgotten how to Google, have you?)
Some of the 2,300 innocent children may never be reunited with their parents. And according to psychologists, even the ones who are returned may never recover from the “tragic neglect” forced upon them by a President and his team who never seem to think through the consequences of their actions.
If you’re looking for this tragic tale of Real Life to have a Happy Ending, it doesn’t. Yet.
But it could. There are more people who Love true American Values than there are people who are willing to accept that “the ends justify the means.”
Of course, that was true in 2016 and look how things turned out.
So on November 3, 2020 (and in the mid-term elections in your state on November 6 this year) Make America Great Again by voting.
Vote as if your country and the world depended upon it. Because they do.
