The Trumping Down Of America!

A word on Trump:

It is very scary that he defends himself ,when asked about his racism, bigotry and misogyny, by saying “I’m popular, I get standing ovations!” In a sense, he’s spitting in our faces. And any who say he is “refreshing” or “speaks the truth” is also spitting in our faces and agreeing with his extreme, crazy views. There is nothing “refreshing” about his hatred, dismissal & demeaning of well over half our population. And if the media were doing its job instead of using him to get ratings, people would know that his companies have filed bankruptcy at least 5 times and he’s way over leveraged on his real estate holdings, so he’s really not a “successful businessman” like the lazy media keeps saying.

I’m not really worried about him ever winning the presidency, but what he is doing to our country is sickening. I feel sorry for people who are Republicans, he is marginalizing your party and insuring many losses on a national level for years to come. There aren’t enough racists, bigots and misogynists (that vote) to beat us. Remember, a black guy named Barack Hussein Obama won more votes than any president in our country’s history. If Trump keeps going on and on and on – offending Hispanics, women (and supporters) & many other groups while calling himself a Republican….we win again and again and again.

But I will say, I would rather Trump go away and have the Republicans put up a serious, adult individual so we can have a lively debate about how to solve some problems that still linger in our country and the new ones that pop up everyday.

I think America is still great. Its never been perfect, never will be. But it seems that the right in this country has decided that tearing down the country, bad mouthing it, sabotaging the economy with shutdowns, debt ceiling shenanigans and obstruction is somehow going to give them an edge over the Democrats. It is Un-American. But they seem to have succeeded in their scorched Earth strategy. They act like idiots, people blame ALL politicians and they get a few more angry, misinformed people to show up to the polls than the Democrats…and the scorching continues.

End rant.

  1. A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.
    — Elmer T. Peterson (9 December 1951)

  2. An oligarchy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the plutocrats discover that they can help themselves to largess out of the public treasury. After that, the oligarchs always hire the candidate promising the most corruption with the result that the economy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a democracy, then a republic.

  3. I’d argue Trump is the symptom, not the disease. All the screaming stupidity and festering bigotry was there before Trump came along, and it’ll still be there once he leaves.

  4. In your first paragraph you mention the media. The media needs to be scrutinized and held accountable for their reporting of what they consider to be news. Inadequate coverage of the “news” as well as bias by news agencies is not new. It’s about ratings the talking heads are about drama. The consumer is overwhelmed with the same information over and over and over. I could go on. They continue to be entertainment networks not reporters of news.

  5. Intolerance of a people regardless of the reason is unacceptable and is not what America is about. Simplistic strategies and remarks by the uninformed enflame a complicated situation.

  6. I find I am fairly intolerant of people who want to kill me. Letting thousands of Syrians et al in this country without properly vetting them is a recipe for disaster. That is not bigotry, it is just common sense which you lefties seem to be sorely lacking.

  7. Here is a RACIST, a BIGOT and the last person anyone should want representing our country. In my mind he will either make the USA the laughing stalk of the world or bring us into World War Iii.
    Is this what we want?
    Our government DOES need to be over hauled but not by putting an idiot there.
    Everytime he opens his mouth he has offended some group….women, Mexicans, Iranians, etc. Should we go backwards centuries or go forward, combine our worlds forces to crush those who are causing deaths in the thousands because we don’t believe as they do and who want the power to enslave the people to their wants and beliefs.
