Let’s say you are a Trump supporter. It’s your choice and your right to choose under the liberties granted citizens under the Constitution.
And, let’s say your main reason for backing the president is that, now, Donald Trump is an anti-abortion champion. Again, that’s your right,
And, say you are a dyed-in-the-wool Republican. Period. Paragraph. That’s where this conversation should start.
First, Donald Trump is not a Republican: That’s his label du jour this week, but in the past he has registered as a Democrat, Republican and Independent. He is, then, a political chameleon, changing his color, philosophy and beliefs as it suits his moods or fiscal standing.
He has donated money to many Democratic candidates and organization, including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Planned Parenthood and other so-called “liberal” organizations.
Trump is an opportunist, for sure, in business, politics and life. What is good for The Donald is good for The Donaid and his brand.
Now, Republican supporter of President Trump, how do you view the truism that the president, now the titular head of your party, is choking the life out of the GOP with the certainty that the Minneapolis policeman choked the life out of George Floyd?
When The Donald is through “playing” the part of a kick-ass Republican, he will slough his GOP mantle and abdicate the party to start the MAGA Party or the PAT sect (Party for America and Trump) or maybe the TOWY Party (Tired of Winning Yet).
Whatever, Trump is interested in two things and two things only: Money and power. Right now he is giddy beyond measure because, in his eyes and his ham-handed style, he has both.
Win or lose in November, he will do whatever it takes to keep both. That scenario does not bode well for the Republican Party or the majority of citizens in general, and the United States of America in particular.
The rigors of personal agony and turmoil enveloping this country today is a spit in the ocean compared what could be headed our way after November’s general election.
If you believe in the power of prayer, it’s not too early to drop to your knees and start praying now for the future of this country.
Lose, and Trump and his supporters will not go quietly;. Win, and every global citizens will hold their collective breaths, wondering what new hell this president, this newly ordained potentate, will serve up.
The future of America, four months from the election, is a surrealistic landscape where up is down and “bleak” is the main theme.
