Yesterday I heard a happy Republican
crediting President Trump’s self-proclaimed successes
to his training and experience with consumer-driven accountability;
his for-profit experience with market-driven consumerism.
Now I realize this for-profit wealth of experience
untainted by prior government experience,
appears compelling for how he became President Trump
as opposed to continuing as Emperor Trump,
although there is some concern that these two have become the same,
a monstrous hybrid of plutocracy,
but what does all this say about us,
that we think a lifetime of public sector legislation
is less consumer market driven
than a lifetime of private sector management?
isn’t a democratic government
supposed to be cooperative production
of consumer-citizen satisfaction,
health and happiness and prosperity
and all those other extending family virtues
we originally declared
as root of our sustainable interdependence?
So, how is this presidential choice not taking a further step
precisely in the wrong, even more competitive,
Maybe this happy Republican business advocate
was touting the virtues of more competitive experience
in autonomous response to other producer-driven markets,
the advertised commercial success
emerging from past healthy wealth
of big dollar outcomes.
proclaim autonomously-held glorious outcomes,
pitched to larger and larger markets,
as incoming revenues
exceed outgoing revenues.
And yet this is not at all the type of producer-satisfaction business President Trump is selling
within this democratic enterprise.
His budget will further increase expenditures beyond revenue
when he could move toward balance
by eliminating his proposed tax-revenue cuts
exclusively designed to leave more dollars
in the self-investing hands of our wealthiest individuals and corporations,
the folks with those big self-marketing budgets
with which Trumpians have so much experience,
and by turning the bomb dropping military
into tree planting militias
in areas of strategic pathological toxic-climate concern.
as long as we continue electing NRA Presidents
for their competitive self-promotional training and experience,
responding to competitive EitherOr marketing campaigns,
we will continue to derive a competing bicameral absence of cost-effective legislation
with no explicit investment
in our cooperative health care and regenerative education values,
rooted in co-empathic trust
rather than capitalism’s bottom line
of chronic competitive mistrust,
rooted in WinLose evolutionary theories
rather than WinWin cooperatively enriching democratic experience.
How can we expect any President
to become cost-effective
and produce healthy sustainable outcomes
when we continue to elect denial of transparent accountability
for measuring health production outcomes
against wealth consumption investments
that actually disinvest away from future health production outcomes?
Healthy soil and water,
healthy climates and landscapes,
healthy extending families and GoldenRule multicultures,
produce hot house tomatoes
only for those who choose to remain stuck inside,
denying what’s happening outside
by navel-gazing competitions all day and night,
and ego-maniacal exclaiming against interdependent values
of Earth’s intrinsically cooperative health
sustaining bioregional networks of wealth.
Little wonder so many homeless
and chronically ill
people feel compelled to live marginalized lives outdoors
where Earth’s larger canopy feels more therapeutic
than indoor competing anthro-supremacist toxins.
Watch out for lowly peace-makers,
for we are inheriting what’s left of Earth.
