Several of my latest posts have focused on Trump supporters and potential voters. I suppose it’s because the overwhelming majority of Trump supporters are white and most of the people I come in contact with on a daily basis are white. All of them impress me as being good people, including the few who admit to supporting Trump. I find it extremely distressing that any American would support anyone who is doing and advocates doing what Trump is doing right up to this day, Election Day. How is it possible for anyone who calls him/herself American support someone who is actively working to prevent minorities from voting, trying to disqualify the votes of those who have voted, encouraging armed thugs to intimidate minorities trying to exercise their Constitutional right to vote and is threatening not honor the choice of the voters if he loses the election.
It’s hard for me to believe that these people have even considered the gravity of what they are doing. I don’t care how you feel about the economy or the military or capitalism, given this country’s history and what we all now know about how that has led to our current situation, you have to know that by supporting Trump, you are supporting the antithesis of what America is all about. You are favoring Nazism, Fascism and white nationalism over democracy. Is that what you really want? Have you at least gone back and reviewed the history of those philosophies and how people have fared under rule of those ideologies?
The majority of white Americans will vote today. If they have any sense of what America is truly all about, they will soundly reject Trump’s vision of America and throw him out of office on his ear by at least a three to one margin. If that occurs, I really think this country will be all right. We will have sent a message to the world that America is still a bulwark of democracy and the world’s tyrants will never inherit the Earth.
