Those who know me know I don’t support Brandon any more than I support The Man In Orange. I neither respect nor vote party faction, because the democrats and republicans individually have little substantive difference, and together they form the uniparty that keeps the country in lockstep with tyranny.

I just don’t play the game anymore.

We are no longer a Representative Republic held in check by the Constitution. We are a fully formed, debauched oligarchy with trappings of our former glory; inhabited more and more by 1) generations who know no better and expect even less; 2) illegals recompensed to invade us; and 3) sell-outs in High Office who answer to nothing more than the perverse filth of foreign money and the agenda of the WEF.

Against this backdrop, it appears DJT wants a term as POTUS that’s above oversight, question or repercussions. Our Declaration was written in response to such despotic whims. Shame on us if we continue to acquiesce to this mindset:

A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES MUST HAVE FULL IMMUNITY, WITHOUT WHICH IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM/HER TO PROPERLY FUNCTION. ANY MISTAKE, EVEN IF WELL INTENDED, WOULD BE MET WITH ALMOST CERTAIN INDICTMENT BY THE OPPOSING PARTY AT TERM END. EVEN EVENTS THAT “CROSS THE LINE” MUST FALL UNDER TOTAL IMMUNITY, OR IT WILL BE YEARS OF TRAUMA TRYING TO DETERMINE GOOD FROM BAD. THERE MUST BE CERTAINTY. EXAMPLE: YOU CAN’T STOP POLICE FROM DOING THE JOB OF STRONG & EFFECTIVE CRIME PREVENTION BECAUSE YOU WANT TO GUARD AGAINST THE OCCASIONAL “ROGUE COP” OR “BAD APPLE.” SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO LIVE WITH “GREAT BUT SLIGHTLY IMPERFECT.” ALL PRESIDENTS MUST HAVE COMPLETE & TOTAL PRESIDENTIAL IMMUNITY, OR THE AUTHORITY & DECISIVENESS OF A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WILL BE STRIPPED & GONE FOREVER. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL BE AN EASY DECISION. GOD BLESS THE SUPREME COURT!

If you listen to a man long enough, he’ll tell you his bad intentions. The above Truth from Trump illustrates what he wants: all the power with no questions asked. (A Truth is like a tweet from a twit—only it’s totally true for social media.)

When Donald screams with ALLCAPS that we must live with the “great but slightly imperfect” there’s nothing great about it, because there’s nothing great about a man who wants to sidestep the rules. That all of us are imperfect is a forgone conclusion, and that’s okay: That’s what the rules are for. When you screw up and do things the Constitution prohibits then you’ll be prosecuted. I obviously have no problem with that, and for all his blustering, he shouldn’t either.

His example of the police is very telling. He presents it as an EITHER/OR scenario. Either you accept bad cops doing bad things equally with the good cops doing their job or you have no cops at all. Who in their right mind accepts a premise like that?! Who in their right mind puts forth a justification like that?!

Sure, there will always be bad cops, but we don’t give them a pass when they “cross the line.” We try them and they face justice. The mitigating factor is there are much fewer bad cops than good cops. Further, their limited sphere of influence attenuates the effects of corruption. What do the good People of Boise care about some crooked cops in Dayton? They’re not affected by a “bad apple” in the Buckeye State.

But Trump’s police analogy goes out the window when he talks about the size of his POTUS. There is only one president, and his influence is global! When he decides to “cross the line,” that’s it. Damage done. For the country and the world! There’s no mechanism to soften the destruction. No American can fully escape the consequences of a bad actor president. Even if you live overseas, you’re still haunted by the perverse decisions of a faulty chief executive when the natives cast a gimlet eye on you, equating your honor with the lack of it they perceive in your president.

Truly, a despot cannot ask for anything more than power without accountability, and Trump makes clear he cannot (or will not) wield presidential authority with any checks and balances attached. He wants total immunity.

It makes you wonder how all those who came before got the job done, with that irritating Constitution always getting in the way of a president’s “authority and decisiveness.” (Truth be told, many who came before ignored the Constitution just as much as he claims he needs to.)

There’s no question he’s been targeted by court after court just to make an example of him. While I may sympathize with his plight, I’ll never agree to his demands.

No representative of the People gets to “cross the line” with impunity. It’s debatable how “great” he is, but I’m happy to live with “slightly imperfect” because I hold it accountable nonetheless.

Mr. President, the People keep their own counsel and determine “good from bad,” not you. If you can’t do the job and toe the line then we don’t need you in office.
