Rogues as Hydras Running Wild

Harry M. Covert

Whew! Consider once more – Description – Alexis Charles Henri Clérel. Why in the world bring up this fellow’s name? Few pupils in today’s grammar schools have ever gotten the chance to discover him.


He’s the 19th century French philosopher who wrote: “America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.


His name is better known as Viscount Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the two volumes entitled Democracy in America (1835 & 1840). What would he be saying today?


How sad and disturbing are the state of affairs. The greatness of the nation is at stake.


A special prosecutor affirmed there’s no evidence of wrong doing by President Donald Trump in the 2016 election. This came again verbally Wednesday.


Instead of any loyal opposition going on about honest and fair business for all Americans, the losing crowd continued to prove its bad side and without good sense.


Somehow the two-year plus probe came to naught toward any criminal activities by Mr. Trump.


The evil side of American politics continues to rear its ugly side. It goes on as a hydra, known from mythology as a many-headed water snake. Democrats in control of the House of Representatives don’t have interests of all Americans. That is obvious, proving they are asps, venomous snakes to clarify.


The nation is one of law. Regarding the president immensely hated by those he defeated, they continue fanning the fires of overthrow with extreme disregard for honesty and truthfulness.


Those in the House have become rogues of the worst possible. If they cared a whit about the goodness of all citizens, their love of country, patriotism and good works would rank high.


Many Americans believe the road to another war between the states is in the immediate future. Purposely, lower case is used here to not confuse anyone with blue and gray distinctions more than a century past.


This time attacks aren’t at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, but visibly aimed at the Capital, Washington, D.C.


The ongoing talk is not in any way witty. A coup d’état is unfolding before the eyes of the world and leading to chaos. The attack on the Constitution is well underway. Partisan warfare in the extreme is growing and absolutely must end.


The “I” word has reached epidemic proportions. What are these abbreviations? Spelled out in this lingo they read: I-mpeachment, I-diocy and I-ncompetency.


So, following the day honoring the millions who saved the free world, the “inferiors” are determined to destroy all that’s good.
