I am not sure if 2020 is an acid dream that I can’t wake up from.   It started when we began hearing of Donald Trump back in 2008.   After that the world went out of sync. 


Donald Trump came on the political scene in 2008, but few paid attentions to him.   . 


Trump, the spoiled son of a multi millionaire, received five deferments from military service during the Vietnam war.  He inherited millions from his father upon graduating from college and his bad investments resulted in five bankruptcies.  He made his name as a TV reality star host.  His election as President was a shock to everyone, including himself. 


As President he has denigrated John McCain and all POW’ and MIA’s saying he “prefers people who weren’t captured.”  He called the service men that died during the battle of Dunkirk losers.  He has taken children away from their parents at the southern border and placed them in internment camps.  He has used the office of the president for personal enrichment.     He has ruined the standing of the United States among Allied nations.   And, his subservience to Vladimir Putin raises many questions.  Trump is one of only three presidents that have been impeached while in office.

Trump is a womanizer, a racist, a habitual liar a conman and quite possibly a traitor.  His mental stability is easily questioned.  He displays narcissism, psychopathy, Machiavellianism and egotism.   Yet, he has become the Glorious Leader of the Republican party.


So here we are in 2020, during a virus pandemic infecting one-hundred-thousand-plus people daily with over one-hundred-thirty-five thousand dead and half of the country denying the seriousness of the of the illness. 


We have a totally unqualified President running for reelection and half of the population of the United States considers him a cult savior.


Trump will eventually go; but half of the U.S. population, members of the Trump cult, will influence our democracy for decades to come and make the United States of the past unrecognizable in the future.


Something has happened and I don’t know what it is.   


 I wish I could wake up

  1. I am finding it increasingly difficult to live in this country. I'm glad I am old so I won't have to see how this ends. Even with A Democrat in the White House, the Republicans and 'cult 45' will continue to push for Fascism and against Democracy.

  2. what debra said..
    they are calling it, but after 4 years of this bullshit...??? I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop.

  3. Trump is a symptom, not the disease. Some survey or another found an incredible number of Americans in favour of a strong leader who does not bother with Congress or Courts. That describes Putin to a T and is unfortunately the attitude of too many Russians.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
