I am not a hero, not famous. There is not much about me that is exceptional. I am just a regular (old white) guy. I joined the Army when I was 17 and turned 19 in Southeast Asia. I think in Trump's heart of hearts that he thinks people who have served our country are a bunch of losers. When called upon, he pulled some bone spurs out of his rear end to dodge his obligations, disgraceful. He did not serve then, and I do not believe he is serving the country now. He is only out to enrich himself and his family.
I am not easily angered, but when I listen to the man in the White House spew his hate and fear it angers me. When I see Senator Graham and Mitch McConnell bow and scrape and not disagree with whatever Trump might blurb out of his mouth it angers me. We can only assume that the people that don't condemn this rhetoric agree with it. They are either cowards, racists or both.
What is happening on the border should shame and sicken every American. These people are just looking for a better and safer life, just as most of our ancestors did. Children of any nation don't deserve to be treated this way. If we in America could not provide for our families or keep them safe, we would be fighting for a new start somewhere else.
He could stop this BS with the stroke of a pen, but he is too self-absorbed to do something like that. Mr. Trump is a coward, a liar, a racist and a dictator wanna-be. We, The People need to stand up and be counted, the silent majority can no longer be silent. We must speak out against this man and his policies.
It has gotten to the point when silence is no longer an option, there is no gray area here. People like this do not love America or her values. They are the ones that should "love it or leave it." White guys are going to be the minority, especially right wing radical white guys. Maybe they should start treating people like they would like to be treated. If you buy into this crap you better be ready for the consequences, because most AMERICANS do not. It's time to take a side. I choose the America I know and love.
