I don't trust a full third or more of this country. And I am horrified by that.

Trump/MAGA, QAnon, all of the endless amounts of racism and conspiracy theories and misogyny and sadistic glee at "when the looting starts, the shooting starts."

The PROUD ignorance and denial of reality and science, and the reveling in cruelty and bigotry.

The sanctimonious "Christianity" that inevitably accompanies the hate.

The authoritarian white nationalism, the contempt for democracy and the rule of law, the admiration for corruption, the endless amount of LYING....

A full third or more of this country is on board with all of the above. This is how fascism comes to America. It is here.

It can't just be Biden and Harris. It has to be both houses of Congress, every state legislature, every court - the Republican Party has to be systematically defeated and destroyed. It is THAT bad.

We can't afford not to. Our children and grandchildren can't afford us not to...

Get this cancer out of this world!

3. These people have been around for a long time, but they haven't had the mouthpiece that lied ...

his a&& off to everyone in order to get into the WH. Now that so many have seen him and his antics in reality, and how incompetent he truly is, major consistencies of his old voting blocks that got him into office (and so many that didn't vote in 2016) are either falling away from trump in big chunks on a daily basis and voters that didn't vote in 2016 are bound and determined to vote this time around. Never again will such a mistake allowing such a POS into the WH will happen again. No wonder that repugs are desperately trying to avoid the tsunami that is coming to sweep them out of office, a blue tsunami.

4. Historical perspective. Hoover, in 1932 got 39.6 % of the vote for President.

1932 had 25% unemployment [with mostly single wage earner families!], 12 straight years of republicon misrule, soup kitchen lines, unbelievable poverty nationwide, etc.

Imagine being President Lincoln at the WH.

History is often horrible.

6. Yep.

40% of Americans are either stupider, greedier or more racist than Trump is. Let that sink in while you try to sleep.

9. i have to admit..........

i was very VERY naive about how many horrible people there really were in this country. Turns out the white hats of the KKK are just the top of the iceberg that goes way... way... way....... down.

someday drumpf will be gone......... but cult he leaves behind........ they will be with us for a generation.

it is truly terrifying.
