Trump: Embrace or Assasinate


"Whenever you have an efficient government you have a dictatorship." (Harry S Truman)

Times change, people change and so do governments. Each according to his own will and purpose, whether liked or hated by the great masses. The Pagans had their chance during the crusades, many died and many more embraced Christianity and survived; the Jews had their turn as well, though most were killed by the NAZI's during their time. Sadly, and regrettably, the same people who wrote and watched history are the next victims: Americans.

Should the American people embrace Trump or should he, like JFK and the likes, be assassinated? 

The world does not like an idealist leading their every way in governance. More so, the American people. The land of the free and home of the brave is on trial under Trump's leadership. More walls are built to separate the real and true Americans from those who happen to be 'fake'. In other words, there are more walls than bridges. Does history repeat itself?

The Berlin wall divided East and West Germany from 1961 to 1989. On both sides, the five superpower countries shared portions, with their rules and regulations applying to the sides each owned. There was little communication, contact and wherever you resided became your home. The American people are facing a similar but much more intense type of life under Trump. Those outside the country remain out till further rules apply: those in cannot leave at their free will. 

In comparison to Hitler's NAZI Germany, America is now worse than that. The Germans had a much better life back then. Americans lack so much yet they cannot do much. But of course there's always the 100 days grace period from swearing in before anything happens. Ruling a country under tight rules not only dangers the masses' opinions, but also the life of the president. However, the masses have little control over it. Their only wish is to have a change in the leader's rule.

Who is really to blame for Trump's succession in power? 
"The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything." (Joseph Stalin)
The American people selected Donald J. Trump as their new leader. The affected communities feel left out because they chose a woman to lead them. Whatever Trump decides, the whole nation should embrace it whether it affects their day to day lives or not. But since embracing is not everyone's pair of shoes, then it will not be surprising if he faces an assassination attempt from one or two of those in opposition.

Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half the time - E. B. White
