Ain't She an American: To Hillary from Sojourner Truth

Great American women in history are haunting my American soul tonight. Sojourner Truth gave an awe-inspiring speech in 1851 at the Women's Convention. It was titled, "Ain't I a Woman." Her courageous speech is one of the best in the world of liberty and freedom. However, this is how I imagine Sojourner's words might have changed if she were here to witness the atrocity and failure of American justice. 

Ain't She an American?

"Well, fellow citizens, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I think that 'twixt the" democrats and the republicans, all talking about rights, all Americans  will be in a fix during the election pretty soon. But what's all this here talking about?
That Obama Administration and FBI men over there says that this woman, Hillary Clinton, need not pay for her actions, yet she  broke the law everywhere. Nobody ever helped other traitors guilty of treason over mud-puddles, or gave them a free pass when a prison is clearly the best place! And ain't she an American? Look at her! Look at her guilty actions! She has ploughed and planted, and gathered into lies and emails, secret information, and no man could deny she knew what she was doing was wrong. And ain't she an American? Who could commit such traitorous acts and eat such deceitful words as this woman - others would get it - and she should bear the lash as well! And ain't she an American? She has borne deceit and taken fathers from their children and told critical secrets to adversaries who wish not for freedom but slavery. When Benghazi cried out with need and grief, none but Jesus heard them! And ain't she an American?
Then they talk about this thing in the head; what's this they call it? "Intellect" That's it, honey. What's that got to do with American rights or citizen's rights? If her cup won't hold but deceit and lies and Uncle Sam's holds a quart of justice, wouldn't you be mean not to let her have her half measure full ?
Then that little FBI man in black there, he says this American has more rights than other citizens, 'cause they aren't a Clinton! Where did her rights come from? Where did your rights come from? From God and "We the People" must "secure these rights," as "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." Other than fighting for imprisonment, every American should have nothing to do with her.
If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, then this woman has proven history repeats itself and as an American, she has turned her back, and WE THE PEOPLE must turn this country right again! And now America, we are being asked to do it, the democratic society better let them.
Obliged to you for hearing me, and now this old American ain't got nothing more to say."

Thank you Ms. Truth for your words of wisdom. Note: All italicized words are from an average American citizen who loves this country and the great men and women, like Sojourner Truth, who helped make her great.

  1. CBS Morning News just reported this morning at or about 8:11a.m., 6 July 2016, that a poll taken July 5, 2016, shows that 67% of Americans believe Hillary Clinton did break the law; 31% do not think so and 2% either don't know or have no opinion. I searched for this so I could share it on facebook but could find no mention of it ANYWHERE on the internet- indeed I had to go on DOGPYLE.com to find YOUR blog! Just thought I would mention it. Thanks for your blog!
