Republicans do not speak for "The American People"
we keep hearing republicans
they're telling us
on the news that "The American people"
don't want this or
do want that. claims
baseless sound bites
working the public mind.
republican leaders don't speak for
the "American people", they speak for
the republican party (such as it is)
wallowing in several directions
far to your right
they have become the enemy within,
purposely working to foment hostility
toward government, agitating the population
with half-truths and outright lies,
all aimed at undermining,
poisoning the public well.
the enemy within is without
honor or love of country
why else would they seek
to destroy it?
