Yeah, I know, a “President Trump” can’t happen.

The same thing was said about Reagan and George W. Bush. But Reagan got elected twice and W. served one appointed term and one stolen term.

So do you really believe we couldn’t end up with a “President Trump?”

Face it. There are many millions of ignorant people (and too many who should know better) who are buying into Trump’s P.T. Barnum act of the 21st century.

At some point, America ran off the rails. I don’t know whether it was the Sarah Palin craziness, or the fact that a black man named Obama was elected president twice, or the 24/7 propaganda of the right wing, or the hate, ignorance and fear that has always existed in the ugly underside of America, or a combination of all of them.

We are living in a country in which:

O Racial profiling and police brutality are the norm

O Voter suppression is out of the closet and in full bloom

O One political party talks about killing Social Security and Medicare

O Planned Parenthood is under siege by religious fanatics

O Shooting massacres have become a weekly norm

O The middle class has been destroyed with barely a whimper

O Virtually every U.S. Senator is a millionaire

O Democrats bitch, but don’t turn out for mid-term elections

O Women are still second class citizens in hundreds of ways

O “Privatization” has replaced responsible government

O More people are imprisoned than in any other country in the world

O Congress is bought, paid for, and won’t regulate air, water or food

O Our infrastructure is crumbling beneath us, over us and under us

O “Is our children learning?” Spoken by George W. Bush, Jan. 11, 2000

O “We’re not going to give up on destroying the health care system for the American people.” Paul Ryan March 12, 2013

Do you really believe America couldn’t/wouldn’t elect a boorish, ignorant, narcissist named Donald Trump? -- Not to mention someone like Carson, Cruz, or virtually any other member of their very strange group of candidates who actually believe the garbage they are saying, or are playing to the lowest common denominator.
