THE TRUTH. THE WHOLE TRUTH. AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH. PERIOD

 
Any person who actually listens to, believes, supports, and would vote for Trump the man is either ignorant, racist, has no conscience, or, like Trump himself, all three.
 
Period.
 
There is absolutely no intelligent, rational or legitimate reason for anyone to support Trump the man.
 
This has nothing whatsoever to do with political philosophy, policy or partisanship.  Trump has no political philosophy or beliefs.  Trump is only in politics because of his pathological need for attention, adoration and power, and, of course, to line his pockets.  Trump’s sole belief and philosophy is “Trump is great and Trump is good”.
 
Trump does not care about America.  Trump does not care about the American people.  The one and only thing Trump cares about is Trump.
 
Period.
 
Opposition to Democratic, liberal or progressive politics and policies is not a legitimate reason to support Trump.  If you oppose Democratic, liberal or progressive politics and policies you should support a “traditional” Republican or a true conservative candidate.
 
The only political candidate anyone who cares anything about America, American values and American democracy should support and vote for is one who publicly and vocally opposes, denounces and disavows Trump and his lies.
 
If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.  If you support Trump the man you are either very, very naive or very, very stupid, and you are part of the biggest problem in, and threat to, America today.
 
Period.

AMERICA IS NOT A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY!

America is NOT a Christian country.

America is NOT a religious country.
 
In America the separation of Church and State set forth in the Constitution is absolute.
 
America equally welcomes members of all religions and those with no religion.
 
No one religion, denomination or sect, or its specific beliefs, is preferred over other religions, denominations or sects.  And the religious are not preferred over the non-religious.
 
And most definitely the specific religious beliefs of an individual religion, denomination or sect must NEVER be legislated.
 
Legislating specific religious beliefs is especially contrary to conservative political philosophy and policy.  The basic fundamental tenet of conservative political philosophy is limited government, and the protection and maximizing individual rights.  True conservatives believe that the government should have minimal involvement in the personal and business life of the individual.  The so-called “evangelicals” of the “Christian right” want the government to tell individuals how to live their lives.
 
Religious beliefs may motivate involvement in politics as a practice of good citizenship and a way to help one’s fellow man (or woman), and the religious can preach the gospel, or their version or interpretation of the gospel, to those who will listen, but the religious cannot force those of different beliefs, or no beliefs, to live their lives according to the specific individual beliefs and rules of their specific religion, denomination or sect.

AN INTERESTING PERSPECTIVE

This is an interesting perspective - one I had not thought about before.  

It appears to be an accurate explanation of the true hypocrisy of the so-called "pro-life" position of the Evangelicals of the Religious Right.

CALLING A SPADE A SHOVEL


Supporting and defending the MAGA moron terrorists who attacked the Capital and downplaying the January 6th attack is no different than supporting and defending Al-Qaeda and downplaying the 9/11 attacks. 

According to federal law –

“the term ‘domestic terrorism’ means activities that—

(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;

(B) appear to be intended—

* to intimidate or coerce a civilian population 

* to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or 

* to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; an

(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.”

A terrorist is a terrorist. And a terrorist leader is a terrorist leader. Osama Bin Laden sent Al-Qaeda terrorists to carry out the 9/11 attacks and Donald Trump sent his MAGA moron terrorists to attack the Capital on 1/6.

The difference between Bin Laden and Trump – Bin Laden’s actions are to a degree based on ideology, but Trump’s actions are solely based on personal self-interest.

AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH!

 


hyp·crite | \ ˈhi-pə-ˌkrit 
 
1: a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion
2: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings
3: a member of the Republican Party.
 
 
Republicans are among the first to call for Democrats to be held accountable for each and every indiscretion, impropriety or just plain bad act.  Democrats join in the call for accountability for their fellow Democrats.
 
However, Republicans can do anything to anyone at any time and as often as they want and Republican leaders and Republican elected officials refuse to criticize or hold them accountable - allowing these offenders to continue their offenses without sanction or punishment.
 
The Republican Party clearly believes that only Democrats should be punished for unethical, immoral, illegal, unconstitutional, or just plain bad acts or behavior.
 
Case in point - every single "bad act" that has ever been committed, or been accused of being committed, by any politician in my lifetime, and for which political careers have been destroyed, has been gleefully and unapologetically committed by Trump many, many times with complete impunity.

THE TRUMP VIRUS

 


COVID-19 is not the only new virus infecting Americans today.  There is also the Trump Virus.
 
While many people are calling coronavirus the “Trump Virus”, because of his complete incompetence in handling its outbreak, the Trump Virus is actually a separate disease.  The Trump Virus attacks the brain cells, totally stripping its victims of all intelligence.
 
The spread of the Trump Virus seems to be especially high among leaders of the Republican Party and elected Republican legislators at all levels – federal, state and local.
 
The most severe victim of the Trump Virus is Rudy Giuliani.  The disease has turned the man once known as “America’s Mayor” for his leadership after the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center into a complete blathering moron – the second biggest idiot in American politics today.
 
You may think I consider Trump himself to be the biggest idiot in American politics today – but he is only #3.  The biggest idiot in American politics today is Marjorie Taylor Greene.  But she is not a victim of the Trump Virus – she comes by her ignorance naturally. 
 
It is not known whether Jim Jordan is a victim of the Trump Virus or if he has always been a moron.
 
Similar to Taylor Greene, and perhaps Jim Jordan, the millions of MAGA morons that make up Trump’s core cult of ignorant racists, who cheer Trump’s every lie at rallies, are not victims of the Trump Virus.  They have always been morons.
