Donald J. Trump is not without fault. Perhaps his greatest, is that his background rests with the business world and not with careful diplomacy or governance.
In business, the formula for success lies not with the good of the many, but in profitability. If dumbing down the millions to make it easier to increase sales becomes necessary, then so be it. If letting the market dictate prices even though the process will result in thousands of preventable deaths and untold bankruptcies, then let the beast that is the common man and woman care for themselves. Moving the market to its highest profitability is the greatest good.
If grinding Democracy beneath the jackbooted heel of Demagoguery becomes necessary to improve the lot of the few as opposed to the needs to the many, then let hired jackbooted thugs grind away.
Trump obviously has no understanding of of the good of the many or a decent feeling for just governance. Instead of carefully thought out policy decisions he prefers the roar of the mob, whipped up not by the truth but by political nonsense shot through with innuendo. This could be why he continues on in campaign mode rather than developing reasonable policies. It could be why he is attracted to totalitarianism and shows favor for “strongmen” like Vladimir Putin, Rodrigo Duterte, and Kim Jong-un, whom he recently referred to as a “smart cookie.”
Trump was and obviously is not prepared for the the Office of President of the United States. He must be impeached asap, if only for his violation of the Emoluments Clause.
Republicans, by their silence, are complicit in the threat Mr. Trump represents. If they continue to remain silent then they should be regarded as traitors.
Must we wait helplessly by for an illusory threat that requires the setting aside of The Constitution, the elimination of civil rights and the establishment of a totalitarian regime? Are there so few patriots left in the Republican Party?
Frederick Douglas is dead, Andrew Jackson was not alive during the Civil War, Barack Obama was born on U.S. soil and Donald J. Trump has no business being in the White House. He is there only because members of the Electoral College failed in their duty to protect our national best interest against an autocrat who is simply not qualified to lead.
