Our failed Congress is to blame for this increasingly treacherous electoral disaster. Their failure to protect & to serve has turned the mood of the country from disillusionment to despair, resentment, and worst of all, rabid radicalism.
Those we have sent to Congress have turned their backs on us, refusing to do their job for subversive, partisan reasons that have brought our government to the brink of destruction. The two-party system has ceased to work and this rebellion may have changed the balance of power in America forever. It may never work again.
This opens the door for radicals like Trump to poison the very core of our Democracy.
Our founding fathers are turning in their graves.
The stalemate of the Republican Congress has created this ‘Republican’ monster who now claims the White House so that he can lock up the country, turn against our cherished NATO partners, drive out ethnic citizens he deems intrusive and destructive, build foolish walls, alienate anyone in his way, along with the bizarre promises coming out of his treacherous mouth. He has turned against the free press that has been our salvation from tyranny, condemning them all as biased and conspiratorial – helping to ‘rig the election’ against him.
Heaven knows what this out-of-control tyrant will do and say before he is roundly defeated – having torn the country asunder, with the support of the unconscionable media. More seriously, Heaven knows what will happen to the rabid rabble that is waiting for him to disassemble America.
Will the Republican Party have the courage to stop this? Are they too late to stop the terrible mistakes they are making with this wretched candidate?
God help us, and God help America.
