Gads, this past week has been an intense rumble through political insanity. On all sides people are urging “everyone” to chillax and give Trump an open mind. Yet every single he moves to see that we all lose rights. Every day his team does one more outrageous thing. The folks that voted for him are saying we “all” need to give him a chance.
He has been telling us what he will do. Deport 3 to 4 million people by creating a deportation squad. He is green lighting climate deniers to gut environmental safety net. He is nodding when Paul Ryan says he will gut Medicare. They will steal Social Security. They will repeal (and perhaps some day replace) the Affordable Care Act knocking 20 million citizens off of medical coverage. Yes, the list continues ad infinitum.
Jobs? That’s sidelined. The TPP? That’s a go ahead even though the campaign said it was a no go. Net Neutrality? Not a chance. Barrow and run up the national debt to create infrastructure. If a Dem is ever elected again the GOP will scream bloody murder that the debt is too large but will remain absolutely silent while they create it. Jobs will continue to flee overseas. Minimum wage increase… again it will disappear.
What have we gained from this election?
Nothing but the whirlwind is gained. If you think otherwise send me a sample of what you’ve been smoking.
