If we don't learn to share we may still kill our species (#2955)

     I was thinking about the two main reasons we fight among our species, religion and natural resources. Here in America I had thought we had figured out how to take religion out of the dangerous fighting zone by accepting all religions or no religion at all as provided by the first amendment of our constitution, {"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."}. It is absolutely clear the intent of our constitutional framers that all religions are acceptable and that no religion is acceptable as well.
     So anything to do with establishing a single religion as the foundation of our democracy is unconstitutional. However this is not the case with the current trumps. they feel that Christianity, as they define it, is our national religion and needs to be at the core of our laws. But this isn't the only absurd conflict the trumps are initiating. They are also after our natural resources owned by the people for the people. Which is all of us not some of us. From fees for our airwaves to destruction of our preserved landmarks, republicans are giving our national treasure to the wealthy so that they can reap benefits off of us people who actually already own the processes and resources. It is like if we own a house but then someone comes along and says we must give them part of our house so that they can privately make money off of it and also then charge us for using it.
     Our resources and our beliefs are sacred to us whether they are religious or not and if we don't defend our right to them then they will be taken by the greedy wealthy like the trumps who are in power with the complicity of the republican party. Well, are we cowards who will be stripped of our rights, inheritances and beliefs whatever they may be? Or are we courageous and strong willing to defend our rights and inheritances and beliefs whatever they may be against those who would rob from us? The world is watching and there is no hiding or ignoring this choice we each must make. How will you respond and how will your legacy and destiny define you?
