never my president
Well, here it is a few days later and overt racism, bigotry, and hatred has exploded across the nation via graffiti, verbal attacks, and actual physical violence and, most troubling, a lot of it in our schools. The reports showing up on FB and Twitter are endless.
I did not like George W. Bush. He indebted this nation for his illegal war, created worldwide terrorism, took money from SS to pay for his folly and then claimed SS was no longer viable, he plunged this country into a severe recession through republican policies but still I accepted him as president. I will never accept the racist bigoted misogynist fascist admitted sexual predator Donald Trump who has encouraged violence, citizen against citizen, as president. Never. I won't go low with disgusting memes like the republicans have done for 8 years with President Obama, but I will never ever give him the title of President.
I find it amusing that he is calling for us all to come together. Who exactly is he talking to? The blacks he calls thugs, the latinos he calls rapists and murderers, the muslims and other non-christians he calls terrorists, the women he calls disgusting and thinks he can just sexually assault because he's rich, the other gendered he intends to let people discriminate against? What a fucking joke. Has he condemned any of the violence against these people that he has demonized for a year that has exploded since he was elected? No, he has not. But he has tweeted that he thinks the protests against his election are 'unfair' even though he planned to do the exact same thing if he lost..
And his repeated pledge to curtail lobbyists and rid the government of special interests, he didn't want them, wouldn't use them? His transition team is full of lobbyists, his financial advisory team is full of veteran Wall Streeters, and bankers are in the mix to be Treasury Secretary.
Get ready because Mitch McConnell has already said repealing the ACA will be their first act of Trump's presidency. They have nothing to replace it with of course because they don't really care how many Americans will once again die from treatable illnesses. You think your premiums for shit policy were too high under the ACA? They will skyrocket now under an unrestrained for profit health insurance industry. And that's just the beginning. Good job Trumpers.
Well, you people who voted for him, you got what you wanted. You swallowed a big turd and it's going to be stuck in your throat for 4 years. Congress will now go after every social program that you depend on. Food and housing assistance? Gone. Social Security and Medicare? Slashed at best. Disability? Go get a fucking job. The first amendment? Go directly to jail. The EPA? I hope you like your water and air poisonous. Our national parks and preserves? Sold to the highest bidder. That heinous peaceful nuclear restraint with Iran? Get ready for war.
You know, the worst part of this is not that all the liberal compassionate advances we have made that will be rolled back, it's the loss of any moral character that this nation had. It was a grand experiment, this melting pot, this democratic endeavor, but it's gone now. The constitution means nothing to them.
RIP America. It was nice knowing ya.
