A REAL President

“Anarchy will not be tolerated in the United States of America. This is a nation whose very foundation is built on the rule of law. All citizens are expected to obey the law, even those that they might disagree with. Our system of justice is in place to address those differences.

“As of this date I am ordering the National Guard from all adjoining states on immediate duty in the state of Illinois. They will restore order. A curfew of 9:00 PM is in effect as of this evening and anyone found on the streets after 9:00PM will be arrested.

“Anyone caught in the act of destroying private property or looting will be shot. Innocent citizens of Illinois will not be terrorized by violent mobs. This is not the way America works, and the actions of criminals and thieves will result in their immediate arrest and incarceration. I place this executive order in place as of this time and date.”

Who said that? Unfortunately, nobody did – except me. But it is what a President should do and what previous Presidents have done. Perhaps someday we will have a real President. I hope I live to see that day.
