Trump has been part all the time of the same establishment that now he is criticizing. He has profited immensely of the crisis that other
politicians have created, without complaining before, and he supported the two Bushes when they ruled the country.
If you really want to know when America entered in the dark tunnel we are still crossing , you need to refer really back in time, you need to go to
July 15th of 1979 when Jimmy Carter addressed the country to tell with his soul completely open what was wrong with us, but moreover How to fix
His Crisis of Confidence speech was the way he tried to hold us from our shoulders and shake us to try to awake our minds, unfortunately this was
misunderstood by many and also misinterpreted by his critics, that called it the 'Malaise' speech.
Carter tried to motivate a change of attitude on the people, to understand that it is not through path of uncontrolled ambition, materialism and
violence that we are going to find our destination, but by cultivating values of our spirit: education, creative thinking, inventive thinking,
less destructive criticism and more constructive mentality.
For Jimmy Carter America needed to be a moral nation in order to justify and maintain its leadership in the world, a country supported the solid
principles preached by our founder fathers: A fatherland for all of us, not a jungle in which we predate economically each one the others.
Crisis of Confidence Speech was a reflection about the lack of confidence among Americans, the huge division existing that was in the core of the evil
mentality that caused horrible episodes of our History: the Assassination of JFK, RFK, MLK, MX, the lost war of Vietnam and the Water gate and the
subsequent moral damage those events brought to the country.
When he arrived to Power America was not a healthy nation, it was sick of incredible national traumas that were caused by wrong leaderships of the
past, with huge injuries dividing the society. He tried to recover the spirit of Camelot, that Kennedy advocated in his times, or the New Deal of
FDR, to join America around moral ideals of a great Society.
Carter's call was for motivate us to grow intellectually to develop new solutions for our problems stimulating creativity in Arts, technology and
science. His successors wanted to made America a country of Pirates and Corsairs that can find their future by harassing and plundering other
nations, he instead foresaw an America that can be a world moral power, able to generate wealth for itself from its own most precious capital: The
inventive spirit of its people.
Since the so called 'Malaise' speech was not really understood we went to more unfruitful wars: like Iraq and Afghanistan, and we saw more political
scandals like Iran-Contras, the Sex-gate and even a President that declared a war based on lies, like it happened with the non existing massive
destruction weapons of Saddam Hussein.
Of course unrealistic and populist offers on relaxing regulations and taxes brought every time worst recessions shaken our economy: The Volkers-Reagan
1982-3 , the post Persian Gulf and the Great one.

His administration had only six months of recession under the pressure of the Opec embargo, that looks mild if we compare it with the almost three
years under R.Reagan, two years under G.H.W.Bush and the horrible Great recession at the end of the G.W.Bush and beginning of the Obama one.
Jimmy Carter never lied to the country, even when the truth was so difficult to face, like under the crisis of hostages in Iran. When the country
became in recession under him he faced it with dignity and courage, not making up macroeconomic indicators as G.W.Bush did for years before to accept
He was never involved in unethical actions, possibly that was what certain politicians disliked of him. Although he is classified as a Liberal
President by many his standards for the Presidency were based in his Baptist Christian principles .
We Need today again so much a genuine moral leader to push America altogether, not an opportunistic billionaire injecting hatred among us, but a mind
with a Pastor approach to heal us with the power of mutual forgiveness and concord, that handle us as only one piece to ride us back toward the path
of real progress we lost long time ago.
We need a President that cure us of our Gas and War addictions, from self destructive criticism and predation to constructive solidarity, somebody
that treat us as a giant team, to return us to real life.
