I had a Dream,
No I’m not trying to be MLK
And dream is the wrong word, nightmare is better.
I was standing before all of our political leaders.
The charge was not known and what crime I had committed didn’t matter
I was there to be publicly flogged for some reason
but as with all my bad dreams since I was a kid I stopped the bad stuff and got “My Way”. I had learned to control dreams as a young kid, because I had so many it was a survival skill. Now as an adult it was just second nature to do it.
I stood there and told them, “I’m am not here because I have done wrong. I am here because YOU are wrong.” The leader of the group banged her gavel and screamed for someone to silence me.”
But this was my dream, and here, I am in total control! “ NO!” I said. “I will not be silenced. It is time someone told your pompous, self righteous asses that WE control YOU. You are seated there because of the two bad choices we had we chose YOU of the lesser of two evils, not the better of two good people. You ALL sit there as our representatives not our rulers! Your arrogant and wasteful plans brought forth by who knows what special interest that has never represented a public interest are NOT the ones you were brought here to represent!”
Again some screamed for me to be stopped. Not a chance, "if you are going to judge ME then I WILL have my say." This was my Coup de tat and my dream. “I will not be like so many who have had their dreams smashed because people of power or waste wanted an easy way out. Not necessarily the right way, but an easy one.”
The momentum was building, “ For a group of legislators who have a lower approval rating than the Federal interest rate to have the gall to hold hearings judging moral character is beyond belief! What ignorant and self righteous asses you are. Every move you make is for the choreographed scene that will win your next election.”
“Stop him” they all were yelling now. I was saying what so many people needed to hear about what our political bodies have become. What our “Leaders” were now afraid people would see. My crescendo was coming to it’s climax!
“We are not to be silenced by you! You will be silenced by US! We will dictate the new way and it will be carried out. Unless the moral majority of the USA has become so depraved by the excess of media and lies we can’t see the path anymore and then it simply doesn’t matter anymore does it? We are all doomed.” The room was silent now and the politicians smiled knowingly at what I had just said. That’s when I knew my dream was in fact a nightmare.
