Unity Anyone?

What’s below is a rehash, reblog from last year and the topic “unity” has been around since Mr. Obama was trying to get elected president in 2008, rehashed now by Mr. Trump himself. I didn’t think he had it in him.

And today, November 15, 2015, the “unity” theme keeps appearing on my TV screen silently in printed video captions under president Obama’s speaking at the G20 conference in Turkey about stricter national boarder enforcement. And the thought occurred that at the G20 “unity” as in Mr. Obama’s early political campaigns means agreement, and it’s difficult to imagine anyone in  his audience wanting to disturb the quietude of “unity”.

I was just looking at my most recent posts: one very old one and one reminding me that “unity” is still a central political theme along with “change” both highlighted by Mr. Obama in his 2008 primary campaign bringing to mind a curious omission among political slogans – “freedom”.
