HERE IS A QUICK ANALYSIS OF OUR “AMERICAN DEMOCRACY’S, STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH BY CURRENT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP!

PRESIDENT TRUMP GAVE THE LONGEST STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH IN OUR HISTORY AND USED THE MOST WORDS OF ANY STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH IN HISTORY AND NEVER UTTERED THE WORD “DEMOCRACY’, ONE SINGLE TIME. BY HIS ACTION AND OTHER COMMENTS, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP BELIEVES THAT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS A “DEMOCRACY”!

AS A DEVOTED AMERICAN CITIZEN, AND STUDENT OF OUR DEMOCRACY, AND RETIRED TEACHER OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND HISTORY, “DEMOCRACY IS A TREASURED WORD” IN MY AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC’S HISTORY. AMERICAN DEMOCRACY IS GUARANTEED RIGHT THERE IN OUR U.S. CONSTITUTION OF 1787; EVERY CITIZEN SHOULD READ IT!

AS A RETIRED AMERICAN TEACHER OF HISTORY AND GOVERNMENT, I WAS DEEPLY OFFENDED BY THE LIES IN HIS STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH, BY PRESIDENT TRUMP! IN MY LIFETIME (88 YEARS OLD), I HAVE NEVER HEARD A MORE ATROCIOUS AMERICAN STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH!

ANOTHER TERRIBLE LIE BY PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS, “AMERICA IS NOT A SOCIALIST COUNTRY!”

AS A TEACHER, I WOULD HAVE TO SAY AMERICA HAS NEVER BEEN A TOTALLY CAPITAISTIC COUNTRY, NOR A SOCIALIST COUNTRY, HOWEVER, OUR AMERICAN CONSTITUTION PROVIDES FOR BOTH, CAPITALISM AND SOCIALISM, OUT OF NECESSITY, LIKE MOST EVERY NATION.

THE PREAMBLE TO THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION READS: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.” “PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE” IS CAPITLIZED BY THE WRITER FOR EMPHASIS.

ACTUALLY, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIKE “ALL NATIONS”, WAS ‘FOUNDED FOR ONE PURPOSE ONLY; EVERY NATION HAS BEEN FOUNDED “ONLY” TO PROVIDE FOR THE PEOPLE ‘COLLECTIVELY’, ALL THOSE THINGS THAT THE PEOLPLE AS INDIVIDUALS CANNOT PROVIDE FOR THEIR SELF AS AN INDIVIDUAL. AND THAT IS A SOCIALISTIC ENTITY!

FOR THE BEST EXAMPLE, AN ARMY AND NAVY. THE ARMY AND NAVY ARE SOCIALISTIC ENTITIES!

THE AMERICAN ARMY, NAVY, LOCAL POLICE AND FIRE PROTECTIONS, THE VERY ROADS AND STREETS WE DRIVE AND WALK ON, ARE ALL SOCIALISTIC ENTITIES. THIS IS “DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM” AND DOES NOT PRECLUDE A CAPITALISTIC ECONOMY!

AND THE FOUNDERS OF OUR U.S. CONSTITUTION PROVIDED FOR A GOVERNMENTAL, UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE, BECAUSE IT WAS TOO IMPORTANT (LIKE THE ARMY) TO TRUST TO CAPITALISTIC INDIVIDUAL CITIZENS.

AMERICAN CAPITALISM IS BASED UPON THE CONSTITUTION’S FOURTH AMERNDEMENT:

Amendment IV: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but on probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the person or things to be seized.“ And, Amendment V: “No Person shall . . . be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.”

CAPITALISM IS BASED ON COMPETITION!

SOCIALISM IS BASED UPON COOPERATION!

BECAUSE CAPITALISM IS BASED ON COMPETITION, IT REQUIRES THE GOVERNMENT TO EXERT SOME CONTROL FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSUMERS (AND THE CONSUMER IS EACH AND EVERY CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA).

THE GREAT AMERICAN AND REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT TEDDY ROOSEVELT (THE “TRUST BUSTER”) SAID ABOUT CORPORATIONS: “OUR AIM IS NOT TO DO AWAY WITH CORPORATIONS, ON THE CONTRARY, THESE BIG AGGREGATIONS ARE AN INEVITABLE DEVELOPMENT OF MODERN INDUSTRIALISM. . . WE ARE NOT HOSTILE TO THEM; WE ARE MERELY DETERMINED THAT THEY SHALL BE SO HANDLED AS TO SUBSERVE THE PUBLIC GOOD. WE DRAW THE LINE AGAINST MISCONDUCT, NOT AGAINST WEALTH.”

“BUT THERE IS ANOTHER HARM; AND IT IS EVIDENT THAT WE SHOULD TRY TO DO AWAY WITH THAT. THE GREAT CORPORATIONS WHICH WE HAVE GROWN TO SPEAK OF RATHER LOOSELY AS TRUSTS ARE THE CREATURES OF THE STATE, AND THE STATE NOT ONLY HAS THE RIGHT TO CONTROL THEM, BUT IT IS DUTY BOUND TO CONTROL THEM WHENEVER THE NEED OF SUCH CONTROL IS SHOWN.” SPEECH AT KENNEDY PLAZA, PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND (23 AUGUST 1902).

IN PRESIDENT TRUMP’S STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH, HE STATED THAT ONE OF HIS GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN HIS FIRST TWO YEARS AS PRESIDENT WAS TO ELIMINATE MORE LAWS CONTROLING CORPRATIONS, THAN ANY OTHER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES; PRESIDENT TRUMP ALSO MAINTAINED THAT “ANY” GOVERNMENT REGULATION OF CORPORATIONS WAS “WRONG”.

AS A FORMER TEACHER, I FEEL COMPELLED TO WRITE THIS FOR THE BENEFIT OF OTHER AMERICANS WHO LOVE OUR DEMOCRACY, THE AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC!

WE AMERICANS ARE AND HAVE BEEN SINCE 1787, ABLE TO ENJOY AND APPRECIATE OUR AMERICAN CAPITALISM, SOCIALISM, AND DEMOCRACY, AS A PEOPLE! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
