Donald Trump and his supporters, recognizing their objectives weren’t popular with an educated public, have again dredged up a bogeyman for their followers to fear. The “caravan” of predominately women and children seeking an escape from poverty, murder and rape are suddenly a threat to the strongest country in the world, requiring the mass deployment of troops to the southern border.
Before you vote for any Republican, review the past issues the party has used to scare you into compliance. “Welfare queens” popping out babies to get welfare payments, “abortionists” allowing for indiscriminant sex which would rot our social structure, “gun control advocates” taking our guns, “gays” corrupting our kids and ruining our marriages, “transsexuals” making public bathrooms unsafe, “death squads” killing our parents, and “immigrants” bringing disease, crime and taking our jobs?
Have any of these dire predictions proven true? No! It is not “fake” news to accurately report the actions of this narcissistic man and his flunkies. Your vote is your only chance to express what you believe the U.S.A. really should be. Use it for good. If you don’t, you are as guilty as he is. In his own words, sad!
