trump, the enemy of democracy

There are obviously many things to be said about our current election process in the US. One of the things that cannot be said is that there is any justification for voting for trump.

When he calls for vigilantes at “certain” (i.e., minority) polling places, he is calling us back to a time when violence shaped our ever-expanding western frontier. The fastest gun in the West, one always hoped, belonged to the sheriff. Only sometimes was that true.

trump has shown time and time and time again — and his “surrogates” have emphasized this — that he accepts no responsibility for his words, even as he seeks the most responsible position in the world.

trump’s spokespersons constantly criticize the media for looking only at the sensational stuff trump says, not at his “policy positions.” His positions on policy, however, are hard to see because trump covers them with so much junk. the surrogates should be holding trump responsible for ceasing to obfuscate matters. It is trump’s fault, not the media’s, that the public cannot guess where he stands on a large number of key issues..

There simply is no excuse for anyone to vote for trump. No excuse whatsoever.
