Trump’s Place in History is Now Secure. He signed the Russian Sanctions Bill despite Putin’s Anger.

Great Job, Donald. Like JFK and going to the Moon or MLK and the “I Have a Dream Speech”, Donald Trump will forever be remembered for the Russian Sanctions Bill that punishes them for meddling with our Presidential election in 2016.

History is sometimes like this… The Magna Carta was Signed by King John and has turned out to be one of the best documents in the History of the world. King John didn’t want to sign the Magna Carta and Donald Trump didn’t want to sign the Russian Sanctions Bill but both were faced with a power greater than themselves forcing correct action.

Maybe we should become Allies with Russia. End the Cold War and learn how to do business together.

What if Trump’s right? What if all this anti-Russian panic is absurd? Why don’t we stop with all the fear and loathing an let Exxon Mobil drill for oil in Siberia? We had a good partnership in World War Two. Then there was decades of bizarre anti communist panic.

I heard that during the 1950s Senator Joe McCarthy and the House In American Activities Committee hassled folksingers like Pete Seeger about whether or not he was a member of the communist party. People in Hollywood had their careers ruined because the government was afraid that they would use the power of films to influence public opinion and allow Commie Ideas to brainwash the masses. Seems absurd now…

Then we fought wars in Korea, Vietnam and Nicaragua to prevent creeping Communism from taking over the World. Well, we found out that even the USSR and China didn’t like Communism. Not much danger of that economic system taking over… In the mean time, the USA lost over 50,000 lives and spent trillions of dollars fighting an enemy that was doomed to fail from within.

Why don’t we just learn to get along? Sure, their country has problems. For example: they kill newspaper reporters that criticize Putin and they let their “Mafia” steal all the “Worker’s Assets”. Yes, THEY have troubles but are they not our troubles but THEIRS? Shouldn’t we stop trying to “Improve” their government’s behavior by imposing Sanctions? Why can’t we be friends?

If we stopped believing the Cold War Brainwashing maybe everyone would be better off…
