Back in the mid-50’s, Elvis Presley scored a big hit with Heartbreak Hotel. What a song. But this is not about Elvis’s legacy, it is about our country’s. I know, the Eagles also had one about Hotel California where, “You can checkout anytime you like but you can never leave.” But I wonder if America is turning turning into heartbreak hotel?
“Well, it’s down at the end of Lonely Street At Heartbreak Hotel.”
No, I don’t suggest songs are prophetic or particularly relevant except that the vision seems to fit in some cases. Purely by coincidence of course, unless you are talking about literature and Orwell’s 1984. Then it probably hits much closer to home.
Anyway, what do you call it when a president or a political party attacks the economy, energy, history, schools, the country and our justice system (and the people) all at the same time? What do we have?
Put it this way, I’m concerned but I don’t see the solution in elections. I mean haven’t we learned that only goes so far? And that just sets the cycle going from election to election, and getting much the same results.
So I start wondering now and then if we can overcome all the obstacles and this agenda? Is it possible or is it fools gold? How many times can you get up expectations only to have the wind blow them all away? And I’m not recommending a no way out mindset. We still must have hope. They cannot kill that off.
However, when things look grim as they often do, it does start feeling like we are in a heartbreak hotel but with little other options. It is all bound to break your heart seeing this mostly intentional damage inflicted on the country. And as I said, with all these parts of the US being attacked at once, how do you defend the turf?
The Democrats’ rhetoric is anchored to the past while they systematically destroy our hopeful future. Not by accident. Ever feel like you’re living in an experiment gone wrong?
Take this example: I get a campaign flier from a judicial candidate. No party is mentioned but a quick scan reveals the words “justice not handcuffs,” in quotes like here. Wait, could it be a candidate attacking those radical “reform” concepts? No, sure enough it was another activist, leftist candidate running on that theme. This time a judicial one. The same rhetoric as radical DA’s use.
I previously looked into some of the radicals’ policies and code words pop out like a teen frat party. One of them is called diversion policies. You know: diversion programs, mainly for youth but not exclusively for them, which divert justice or consequences for crime under the guise of rehabilitation. The idea is to keep criminals’ records clean because of the “stigma” contained in conviction from the justice system. No record, no stigma. It’s the “system” that stigmatizes criminals — not what they’ve done.
So I read this stuff they put out as if it makes the case for the programs, when it doesn’t. Yet they are pushing this stuff on us like it has great results. It doesn’t. Sure, they make their case but lacking in it is any sense of accountability or empathy for real victims. Yet it is interesting seeing them put this forward as some kind of solution to the problems they are creating. It’s dangerous.
But how many people fall for this propaganda of the Left? That scares me as much as the programs. Another thing I notice with these radicals is that these programs have long legs. They just keep creating more of them regardless of whether they work. What can you do about them? Can elections fix this?
Even if you get candidates elected, the tentacles of these programs are still there, after radicals are evicted, contaminating the entire system. How do you keep up with current work loads while trying to restore the system? What are real the odds of success?
The idea is not to let these radicals into office in the first place. That’s good if you can. But it may be a little late, if they already are in various places. I only offer my area as an example. If they are pushing radicalism here, then they are doing it everywhere. It will be the demise of society. They don’t care because that is what they want, as long as it leaves them in political control when all the SHTF.
But there is no accountability for either the policies or crime it produces and encourages. Then we are back to wondering if the country can survive this onslaught of attacks or what it will be like in the end? Or are we already doomed to a Heartbreak Hotel scenario?
Only those that truly care about the country are disturbed by it.
