With full intention, I am about to violate Godwin’s Law. This is not a social media argument and there are times when a comparison is totally valid.
For decades now, one party has preached fear of the “other” and hatred for all those different from oneself as a means to obtain power. Those fears while having some substance in terrorist attacks and socioeconomic changes are less likely than being injured while out for a Sunday drive. In Congress, Republicans have spent the last seven years doing everything possible to destroy the sitting president and creating tax policies that have a nation mired in debt while benefits flow only to the wealthiest among us. They have sown the wind and now appear to be reaping the whirlwind.
I fear for a nation that can even consider the possibility of a President Trump. That bloviating, bullying, boorish, egotistical purveyor of fear and hatred is the living example of all that is the dark side of the US. You watch the thousands cheer and realize just how a Nazi Germany could happen. A people so demoralized and economically threatened that they will follow someone who tells them they will come into their deserved greatness as he leads them into the ugliest of actions.
This November when it comes time to vote, it is time to remember “E Pluribus Unum”. We are all in this together. It is not a time for either fear or hatred. It certainly is not a time to follow a madman like Trump. For you Mr. Trump, It is not time to make America great again. It is and always has been great and you can go to hell where you belong.
