You see, like gallows' day, the rapidly approaching USA election day has been crowding my thoughts and depressing my spirits. I am gobsmacked that a demonstrable egomaniac and blowhard, with the intellectual depth of a trustafarian barfly is the GOP standard barer and presidential candidate.
I mean all these Republicans and even preachers of God who constantly flaunt their high and mighty moral standards and supposed superior grasp of human affairs and world politics and god's will, are rolling over for this amoral, financial and intellectual fraud named Trump. What would God think?
Look at the situation! Republicans are willing to sell their integrity to a New York demagogue who's home is gilded in gold. Where is that right wing's moral fiber when it's needed?
Gone, not to be found anywhere. Why? Well Republican's have adopted a new approach to life and politics. Disregard and demonize all who oppose them and their faith-based dogmas - period!
All others are perceived as enemies rather than fellow citizens in this once thriving democracy called the United States of America.
Anything to stop Democrats and "progressive" ideas to challenge their lives. These Republicans remain fixated on ancient tribal texts that offer no better than an eye for an eye and an ear for an ear, until the whole world is blind and deft.
I suggest this year’s Presidential election can be boiled down to one simple question: “Do you believe dogmatic faith should trump objective observation, evidence and learning?”
You must realize a vote for Mr. Trump, or a no-show, is a vote for facade and threatening hostility laced bluster over thoughtful substance and constructive engagement.This video offers constructive hope. We still have the VOTE in the USA, but we need every rationalist and science respecting citizen to go and Vote. Remember a healthy democracy demands an informed and engaged citizenry. It needs your help.
