As I turned 68 in 2016 I realized this could be my last presidential election I vote in. How odd are the turn of events.
Every GOP candidate denounced Mein Trump for bullying, lying, changing positions. Now they all support him as the new GOP normal. That’s like saying North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un is the new normal.
There is nothing Trump or Kim Jong-un can now say that will shock anyone anymore. Imagine both their small hands atop the most powerful nuclear button in history.
The donor class and GOP establishment reveal a hunger for victory at any cost. Remember when suicide-Cruz read Dr. Seuss in the Senate to block a vote that would save the U.S. from bankruptcy? When Trump bankrupts the U.S. it will make the Bush recession look like child’s play. Remember Russia’s Boris Yeltsin driving his superpower locomotive off the track? Donald Trump follows right behind.
Never miss a local story.
Has madness and being mad overtaken the GOP? The world listens and watches and cringes. Lines are drawn, and one is either part of the problem or part of the solution. No one can hide behind the labels undecided or apathetic while Trump previews his Armageddon reality show. Those playing the trump card will hold their celebration in a huuuuge bomb shelter. Lucifer will MC.
This could be YOUR last election as well. Come the inauguration I’ll be sipping a martini before a fireplace, enjoying the temporary silence.
