During the Revolutionary War, General’s and Patriot’s entrusted Benedict Arnold, decorated military commander and hero, to lead troops in America’s fight for independence. However, Benedict Arnold nefariously plotted against the American Revolution, choosing instead to aid the British at West Point, New York. Thankfully, Arnold’s scheme was exposed.
Arnold like Donald, pledged allegiance to America. Arnold like Donald, betrayed America. Arnold like Donald, was involved in illegal business dealings. Arnold like Donald, was accustom to a lifestyle of luxury he desperately wanted to continue. Arnold like Donald, craved recognition and status. However, Arnold unlike Donald, actually fought in battle, and was wounded, no bone spurs to circumvent his military service to country.
Speculation swirling around Donald and his indebtedness to Putin and Russian oligarchs is dutifully being researched and confirmed as fact. This is profound. It is surreal to consider that Russians have inside access, via Donald, in The White House. America cannot deny, enable, or ignore facts. The magnitude of corruption and duplicity is significant.
Legislators, acknowledge the facts pertaining to Benedict Donald, regardless of how embarrassing or unsavory the facts may be. If elected officials, do not act directly and responsibly, Benedict Donald will destroy America’s hard-fought independence. Choose Democracy over delusion.
In remembrance, happy birthday to Benedict Arnold, born January 14, 1741 in Norwich, Connecticut. Although Benedict Arnold died long ago, his legacy of betrayal is alive and well.
