Most of the younger generation won’t get this joke, but for me it was the begining of the end for the respect I normally had for our presidents. In this post from 2018, it seems that not much has changed in this regard. If nothing else it’s worsened and the popularity of wanting to become a presidential candidate can only be obtained by one who is not really designed to be a president. It takes one with a strong ego – someone who isn’t immune to criminal activity or deal making – one who will sell his or her soul to the devil, for the eventual job. Since it’s TBT, I thought I”d share it agin. Let’s see if things have gotten better or worse.

I’m old enough to remember the scandal of Watergate and realize that our government was not as pure as I thought it was.  I was in early adulthood and a first time voter for a man who turned conspiracy, secrecy and betrayal into an every day occurrence in the United States.  Today it has grown into a standard for those in politics.  It seems the more scandal there is, the more popular the one who is creating it. It’s really sad to an old woman like me to see the destruction of what we once held to be epitome of public office – the president of this great country.  I won’t stand still for what has turned into an ugly, corrupt state of affairs.  None of us should.  I believe that America is worth fighting for and right now we are in the fight of the century.

In the movie, “Mr.Smith Goes to Washington,” Jimmy Stewart became an overnight success.  The story was a slam dunk against the Senate and an undermining of an innocent man.  Joseph Kennedy, Sr. stated that the movie would “damage America’s prestige in England.”  The film actually showed the effects of one man standing against a broken system.

There are plenty of us grass roots Americans that are sick and tired of politics as usual and the seeming Mafia type tactics that have overtaken our politicians during the past several years.  Each election has us engaged in a political circus that has two very different, but equally corrupt people running for office.  On the other hand, we have two political parties that are desperately broken and our country is suffering because of poor leadership.  Have we become so apathetic that we cannot be bothered by the silliness of politics? Have we given up easily because it’s out of our realm to be involved?

We need another Mr. Smith to go to Washington and stand up to the powers that be.  We need to return to our core values as a nation.  We need to stand up for those values and not cave to politic al correctness.  By doing so, we are allowing our country to be flushed down the toilet.We’re told to pray for our leaders and trust that God has instituted government for our benefit.  One person cannot change what’s happening in our political arena today, but one person has made it possible for us to realize that in the end, God wins  Our salvation was won at a great price  Our country can be won back by the people, only if they let their voices be heard.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    We were discussing Watergate over the dinner table this evening. Actually, we were talking about Congressional investigations in general and how one-sided they are. In a courtroom, both sides are represented. The defendant will receive legal help even if he or she cannot afford a lawyer. But Congressional committees hold secret meetings, decide which evidence and which witnesses fit the narrative they want to broadcast, then put on a show for the American people. The Red Scare of the fifties, Watergate, Iran-Contra, Clinton’s escapades–they’ve all been trotted out there in a totally biased and one-sided fashion to try to shape public opinion. I, for one, am sick of the current show. I wish someone would cancel it and return our regularly-scheduled programming. J.

      I’m right there with you. The only reason I watch the news is for the weather. I haven’t given up on my country though.


  2. God bless the American spirit! Perhaps we all need to view “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” again . . . especially our politicians at all levels of government.
