45 Reasons…

In March of this year, I began writing an extensive post titled, “45 Reasons NOT To Reelect Trump.” After hour upon hour of research and fact-checking, I realized that I had 75 reasons and FACTS, which greatly surpassed the 45 intended, so I stopped. Since then, that list of reasons has surely doubled, if not tripled. I just don’t have the energy to keep up. 

12 days from now we go to the polls, and many have already voted via early voting or mail-in ballots. I pray that Joe Biden can pull this off because, in my opinion, we are worse off now than we have been in decades and Trump has had a huge hand in that. He has brought out the worst in us. He has lied to the American people time and time again. He downplayed a virus that has killed over 200,000 Americans and we are nowhere close to seeing an end. We are lacking competent leadership and while some may be asking if Joe Biden is up to the task, I think he is. I know he would do a better job than Trump. In fact, my 12 year old grandson would do a better job than Donald J. Trump.

I’m just tired of listening to a whiny-ass, adolescent, bully of a man pretending to be President of this great country. When things don’t go his way, he attacks people. When someone disagrees with him, he fires them. Instead of answering the tough questions, he has a tantrum and walks away. We need a President who answers the tough questions because that’s his job! During this pandemic, he left decisions to individual states’ governors. We need a President who LEADS, not one who passes the buck. We don’t need one who resorts to name-calling and attacks on his opponent’s family members. We need a strong, yet kind LEADER, not one who is constantly playing the blame-game.

I could go on and on but I don’t have the energy. 2020 has drained me. I have lost faith in people that I thought I knew. And it goes way beyond a difference of opinion. When someone you adore makes racist remarks or says something without empathy or compassion, it rips my heart apart. I have to remove myself from their orbit. That’s all there is to it. I have to save my own sanity.

You may think, “Damn Liberal,” “Libtard,” or whatever, which makes you just as childish as Trump. This is not a ‘party’ issue. I am a Democrat BUT I have voted Republican. I vote based on FACTS and RECORDS. I vote based on who I think would do a better job. I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 and I won’t vote for him in November. 

I look forward to the day of strong leadership, complete sentences, more working than tweeting, and more empathy and compassion. I look forward to NO MORE Trump TV, and a POTUS who knows his facts, supports science, doesn’t mock a soul. I look forward to a President who respects others, regardless of their skin color, religion, status, or job. 

Honestly, I don’t think this country can take 4 more years of Donald Trump. Off to watch the debate. Last time, 5 minutes was all I could handle.

  1. Amen sister!!! You are completely correct, never have I seen this country take such backward strides into the 50s and 60s where the civil rights issues are STILL being fought for. Where racism is not only happening but seemingly condoned by that orange jackass in the White House! He’s against immigration and yet he’s married to an immigrant! He’s the epitome of hypocrisy. He’s nothing but an overgrown child that throws temper tantrums when he doesn’t get his way. Don’t even get me started on his inept wife, who is just as big a failure as FLOTUS as her husband is our pseudo president. Other First Ladies have accomplished something in their tenure, but this useless void is about as intelligent as her husband. I already voted, I stood in line for almost two hours but I was bound and determined to do so. I agree with you, this great country of ours can’t take another four years of that illiterate over the hill teenager. He gets angry when others criticize him in a way that no only states the truth, but done in an elegant way that goes completely over his head. He can’t speak, he can’t lead, he can’t be professional and he can’t do anything that isn’t for his self interest. When history looks back on this clusterf*** of a presidency we’ll only need to read this idiots Twitter feed to remind us of the catastrophe that was bigger and worse than Nixon’s! If you can believe that? I never thought we as a country would see anything worse than Nixon. 🙄

    • Nixon was an angel compared to the twitler in chief! I can’t believe this has happened to our country! You said much more than I did and you are completely correct! I just hope those people who always say their vote doesn’t count, realize that it truly DOES matter!

  2. I agree. I know honesty and politics rarely go hand in hand, but he has been so blatant about it, it is sickening. Just a few more days of the endless commercials. Then we will see if the country can be saved.
