Polls open in my state in about 8 hours from when I wrote this. Yes, we have had early voting, but election day is tomorrow. My readers know that I am not in favor of Donald Trump. I support Hillary Clinton and I will not apologize to anyone for that decision.
I have looked at the policies of both candidates, and I do not see how anything that Trump is proposing will do anything except for the very rich like himself. His entire campaign has been one of divisiveness. He has argued that immigrants are evil. He claims that Mexicans are all rapists and criminals. He believes that all Muslims are terrorists. He believes that women have no place in the workforce but rather are property of their husbands. He declares that African-Americans are less than real citizens and are lazy and don’t want to work.
He has attacked just about everyone including the disabled and especially the media. He has turned his own anger towards everything not Trump to the politics of the Republican Party. He thinks dictators and authoritarians like Vladimir Putin are great leaders. He wants to emulate those people if he becomes President.
He wants to deport millions of Latino immigrants, but seems to be happy with leaving white European immigrants alone even if they are here illegally or lied on their immigration papers.
He claims to be the savior for the working class all the while making his own products overseas. He said that “having a lower minimum wage is not a bad thing for America”. He doesn’t care if people can live off their wages, as long as he doesn’t have to pay livable wages to his own workers.
His hotel in Las Vegas refuses to recognize the union workers and refuse to bargain faithfully with their union representatives. In other words he is breaking the law.
Donald Trump is heading up the ticket for a party that refuses to live in the 21st century. They want us to return to the days when corporations ruled our land and owned our lives. That is what they call the good ole days. Donald Trump is the hero they have waited for to take us back to these days because he is just like them and wants the same things.
It is a party that doesn’t care if you have health care. It doesn’t matter if you can retire or have to work forever. They don’t care if you can afford to live just so long as you kiss their feet for allowing you an opportunity to slave away for them.
It is a party that wants to privatize Social Security, Medicare and the Veterans Administration. They want to add profits to insurance companies and take away benefits paid for and earned with service. They only care about the bottom line for their donors and not the lives of those affected by their greed.
That is what a vote for Donald Trump and any Republican on the ticket will give us. A country that is divided. A country that has less of a heart than the old Soviet Union. A country where they tell you who you can love. How you can live. What job you can hold. What school you can attend. Where you can live. What you can believe.
It is time for them to be slaughtered at the polls. That is the only way we can get them to come back to reality and live in today’s world. The vision of Donald Trump and the Republican Party is not what America is all about.
America is the greatest nation on earth. We need to vote Democratic this year to ensure we stay the greatest nation on earth. A Republican controlled government will make us closer to the third world status that Trump claims we already are. He and his party are wrong. We are already great!
One slogan is correct. We need to take our country back. Back from the oligarchs. Back from the racists. Back from the homophobes. Back from those who want to divide us. Back from the special interests. In other words back from people like Donald Trump and the current Republican Party.
