The sheriff of Nottingham once said….. “Absolutely nothing.”
Last week, President Trump signed an executive order, passing construction on the Keystone XL Pipeline. Now, several days later, I believe this proposal marked one of the saddest days in American history.
Furthermore, due to scientific evidence, yesterday might go down as one of the saddest days in American history for generations to come……
But why? As an American civilian, I believe this event took place because conservatives feel increasingly marginalized by their very own government. How else do you explain our nation’s leaders, acting in such disregard for climate science?
In a country of nearly 350 million people, where culture is eroding and forming a, “new America,” it’s not uncommon for many Americans to feel increasingly marginalized today….. It’s due to this sentiment, “that culture is eroding,” either through; music, politics, or even sometimes education, that I believe many of our leaders today, seem to be lashing out through legislation, such as the Keystone XL Pipeline.
All the while conservatives in particular, seem to be doing so despite overwhelming FACTS, regarding climate change.
Remember when our culture was more like this;

If you don’t, I’m sure Vice President Pence does……..
This period of American history is uniquely challenging in many ways. While millennials will point to the fallacy of land development, the baby boomers will continue to leverage markets in their own favor, pointing out the negative consequences of cultural assimilation.
This is the baby boomer’s legacy. (See also; NCAA pay structures, 2001 mortgage crisis and/or suicide rates.)
What was it about Donald Trump that landed him in America’s highest office? Was it the man himself? Was it his platform? Or was it a prior generation that felt increasingly marginalized, through an ever changing America?
It’s hard to say, but one thing is for certain…. Donald Trump, “is our President today.”
But what are, “silent majorities?” Furthermore, how does our democracy deal with these, “grey areas,” of modern American politics?
For example; America has adopted big pharmaceuticals, in opposition to, “the war on drugs.” Furthermore, in many ways this has gone on in Washington, without anybody formally expressing this policy to the media. For that reason, I believe this is an example of, “silent majorities,” which have been enabling a pharmaceutical drug revolution, in opposition to street drug dealers, without anything being said publicly.
Everyone might not see what’s going on, but they can feel it…….
For me personally, this means one thing. This means that now more than ever, Americans must call on our government to push forward transparency, both domestically and abroad….
This is particularly true, in regards to issues such as Keystone XL Pipeline, where this type of legislation, has long term negative side effects. Long story short, we have to stop letting, “the silent majorities win…….”
Donald Trump won a fair election; not because of the color of his skin, but because he wasn’t afraid to say how he felt about these types of issues.
Despite the current sentiments surrounding Trump’s presidency, signing off on the Keystone XL Pipeline marked a turning point in American politics… This is because legislation of this sort, signals an era where the American mass media has grown eerily oversensitive to having an opinion. In effect, this allows corporate America to pervade Washington biasly and in many ways, this stands in the face of America’s future, because now leadership isn’t even voicing opinions, their simply acting through government.
In this way, despite overwhelming scientific data, the federal government acted with disregard for climate science and what we used to call democracy….
