America: At a Dangerous Time.
Posted on 11/8/2016 9:14:09 PM by Lazamataz
In the time of the Roman Empire, when a General won a major battle for Rome, he would hire or press an Auriga into service.
An Auriga was a slave, albeit a very literate one, who would whisper into the General's ear,
"Memento homo"(remember you are only a mortal man)
during the celebrations and processions.
I will serve as Free Republic's Auriga, today.
While I am ELATED that Donald Trump has seemingly cinched victory,
I am forced to remind us all that America has just entered it's most dangerous time in the entire history of the country.
The most dangerous time in Americas history starts November 9, 2016 and ends on January 20, 2017.
Obama still is in power. He can create a lot of chaos. He can even start a nuclear war.
We are victors on the battlefield. But, I whisper,
"Remember, we are only mortal men."
