Well, this whole Russian collusion “insurance policy” does not seem to be panning out, it seems liberals are moving on to allegations of a decade old affair with a porn star/stripper/prostitute. Did it happen? Not a clue. Does it really matter at this point? I don’t think so. I mean in all seriousness, did anyone honestly believe two years ago when Trump was running for POTUS that something like this was not a possibility? If you did, you had your head in the sand.
Bottom line, Trump won, Trump is the duly elected President of the United States. But, clearly Democrats refuse to accept the will of the people and are determined to undermine his presidency no matter the cost to this nation. Are we suggesting that this behavior, if true, is acceptable? No, not at all, that really isn’t the point. After all, in a society where morality and ethics are seen as a weakness we are hard pressed to find an honest, moral, ethical person willing to jump into the disgusting cesspool that we the people have allowed our political system to become. It is truly mind-boggling that society has moved so far from morality with their whole, if it feels good do it, mantra yet wants to feign shock when it is brought into the light when a political representative is implicated. Hollywood thrives off of decadent behavior, worships it, yet now they want to pretend to be shocked over the suggestion of the very type of behavior the industry has normalized in American life. Did you know that more than two-thirds of men and women in America have had or are having extramarital affairs? Now that is something that should turn your stomach!
This may very well be the post that causes me to lose every last reader following this blog. But I set out to tell the truth, and well, that is exactly what I intend to do. While blame cannot be placed on a single group for the direction our society has taken with regard to morality, one can certainly look at who was pushing the ideologies that have brought us down this path. The sexual revolution appeared in the 1960’s climate of liberal government and economic prosperity. Young liberals rebelled against traditional gender roles and the way society viewed sexual relations and relationships in the name of progress. Be careful what you wish for. The point being, when as a society you advocate for pure freedom to do as you please be damned the consequences, you cannot put your hand over your mouth and pretend to be mortified when people are actually living that way. As a society we do not extol traditional values any longer. We no longer exalt personal responsibility, faithfulness, adherence to commitments we have made; nope, it’s all about me, me, me. We have become selfish and self-indulgent. Each generation is lowering the bar of acceptable behavior and so with each generation our society becomes more depraved.
No longer do we care about right or wrong, no longer do we care about who gets hurt, no longer do we care about the example we set for our children. All that matters anymore is what makes us feel good. Immediate satisfaction of every impulsive desire is the controlling factor today, gone are the days of honor, pride and commitment. This is a destructive path our society is on and we better change course or it will be our undoing. So, do I care whether or not our President had an affair with this woman, sure, it is a sad commentary on the state of our society. Do I believe it is an issue that we should be focusing on at this stage of the game, no, I do not. If you supported Trump believing that he was above this type of behavior you were not very well-informed when you cast your vote. Senate Democrats proffered that an extra-marital affair by then President Clinton did not rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors and did not affect his ability to carry out the duties of his office. As such, it would behoove them to tread lightly if they intend to attempt to remove Trump for an alleged affair that, if it in fact happened, was more than a decade before he took office. Bottom line, so long as he is not involved in the commission of unethical or criminal behavior while in office, it is in the best interest of this nation to allow our government to function under its current representation, and those that desire to remove Trump from office focus on doing so at the ballot box in 2020.
