Trump/Trumpism is just like slaveryboth are all-pervasive & horrifically insidious!
.
Trump/Trumpism is ubiquitous – like the air we breathe.  Unceasing, unrelenting & all-encroaching, like slavery was in the United States in the 1850’s.
.
Lincoln gave his iconic “House Divided” speech on June 16, 1858 in Springfield, Illinois before an audience of 1,000 Republican delegates from around the state.
.
It demonstrates that half-way measures on slavery, and by logical extension, half-way measures on Trump/Trumpism – offered no chance of prevailing – but instead only invited disaster.
.
This country cannot endure being half TRUMPERZ & half EVERYONE ELSE!
.
We refer to Abraham Lincoln’s iconic “House Divided” speech given on June 16, 1858 in Springfield, Illinois in front of 1,000 GOP delegates from around the state – to further illustrate this point!
.
The following is an excerpt of some of Lincoln’s remarks in his “House Divided” speech:
.
“Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Convention.
.
We are now far into the fifth year, since a policy was initiated, with the avowed object, and confident promise, of putting an end to slavery agitation.
.
Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only, not ceased, but has constantly augmented.
.
In my opinion, it will not cease, until a crisis shall have been reached, and passed.
.
A house divided against itself cannot stand.
.
I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half-slave and half-free.
.
I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided.
.
It will become all one thing or all the other.
.
Either the opponents of slavery, will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new — North as well as South.”
.

Now, cutting away from Lincoln’s address

.
The new year of 1854 found slavery excluded from more than half the States by State Constitutions, and from most of the national territory by congressional prohibition.
.
But on May 30, 1854 – Congress passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act which allowed people in the territories of Kansas & Nebraska to decide for themselves whether or not to allow slavery.
.
This opened all the national territory to slavery.
.
Basically the Kansas-Nebraska Act gave voters in the territories the power to make constitutional decisions on an economic/social institution like slavery.  This half-way measure – allowed the U.S. Congress to completely relinquish its responsibility and cede it all back to voters which only allowed the cancer on the Republic to further infiltrate American society.
.
During this time the infamous Dred Scott case was making its way through the courts – only to end up in the Supreme Court.
.
On March 6, 1857 the Supreme Court rendered its decision – which was that:
.
First, that no negro slave, imported as such from Africa, and no descendant of such slave can ever be a citizen of any State.
.
Secondly, that “subject to the Constitution of the United States,” neither Congress nor a Territorial Legislature can exclude slavery from any United States Territory.
.
Thirdly, that whether the holding a negro in actual slavery in a free State, makes him free, as against the holder, the United States courts will not decide, but will leave to be decided by the courts of any slave State the negro may be forced into by the master.
.
Basically, the Supreme Court had taken the logic and reasoning of the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 – a half-way piece of legislation – and used it to concoct an ungodly vile & twisted legal opinion that extinguished the very person-hood, and therefore any legal rights of person-hood, of African-Americans in the United States – @ least those in all U.S. territories.
.
So, half-way measures don’t work and always come back to bite you in the butt!
.
In 1861, America underwent the Civil War because of the slave issue and the half-way measures that preceded it.
.
Trump can’t be handled by half-way, half-ass measures or approaches.  Trump is a cancer like slavery was a cancer on this country.  Cancer can’t be dealt with half-way, it’s all or nothing.
.
Trump/Trumpism must be totally eradicated – or like lice – it will come back with a vengeance, if not rooted out completely – root, branch & ALL!
