“Fear and anger has never built a great country.

Donald Trump has made himself a vehicle for fear and anger, for discord and division, for the scapegoating of others, denigrating of religions, people of color, and minorities. That’s not the America that we carry in our hearts. That’s not the America that Hillary Clinton has fought for every day of her life. I’m honored to be in this fight with you.” --- Martin O'Malley

1. Martin hit the nail on the head.....

I cannot imagine this country being "led" by the likes of dumdum and his family.....and the bunch of airheads he would appoint to his cabinet. I think then it would be time to move to another country.

2. I wonder why Clinton

did not consider O"Malley for the VP slot. I really did expect him to be in the list.

4. But the republicans believe that

fear and hate can build a great country. Just ask drumpf. He'll spend the next hour or so telling you they will.

7. "Fear and anger has never built a great country..."

But it has destroyed many countries. Unfortunately, hateful people take pleasure in destruction and find it "entertaining."

And the Republican party has become the party of Idiocracy.

Martin O'Malley is right, but he is too sensible and too good for these times.

9. Yes, and we are witnessing this going on In the UK, of all places.

The "know nothing" wing of the "Murdock" Tories is taking over there, and now France is flirting with similar electoral insanity.

If "know nothing" conservatives take over here as well, we will be remembering the good old days when common sense was in charge.

We can't let the crazies take over. Fear, hatred, and stupidity -- not terrorism -- are our real enemies.

We have to fight that enemy within ourselves as well, by reading, thinking, understanding, compassion, and love.

And it wouldn't hurt to shut off the TV and block out senseless propaganda and media frenzy.

We have to practice mindfulness in these hard times and keep a clear head.

10. Yes to everything you say,

especially 'mindfulness.' I've ignored tv propaganda for months now (probably since M'OM stepped out,) tho I do let my friend listen in the next room (when the door's closed.)
