In DUE COURSE
May 12, 2017
I never a fan of politicians. They all start as an ordinary people like us, but once they become a congressman, senator or political leader, everything changes. First it is the money. Overnight, their source of income expands; their bank account receives untraced wire transfers. After a few years, they move to an upscale neighborhood. Making lunch reservation at the Russian tearoom is no longer required. A luxury hotel suit is made available to them with no cost. Now, they fly 1st class or receive offers from business billionaires to use their private jet for free. Their spouse, kids, relatives and in-laws benefit too. Their children go to prestige Ivy League school even they clearly are not qualified. After graduation, they receive outrages salary by doing odd jobs. Their criminal relatives, in-laws and friends receive pardon even their sins are unpardonable.
Over the years, I have watched the Clinton, both husband and wife, shifting their political views to whichever way the wind blew, lying about their lies to justify their more lies, betraying their friends for political gains, and worse of all, making fault promises to the Americans to gain their votes. When they were caught, first they denied, then they blamed others, and if unsuccessful, their best defense was almost always the same, “right wing conspiracy”. The night Hillary Clinton was defeated by Donald Trump, I was asleep. When I heard the news in the morning, I could not believe that was real. But it was more than real. I was elated.
It was a good feeling to see bad people get punished, to know God indeed is fair and has its plan.
