I left the last post up for a few weeks because I felt it encapsulated a lot. At this point, however, I am compelled to say more, as follows:

Enough. Again, I’ve had it. I’m tired of holding back. I’m tired of bringing a peashooter to a gun fight. So here goes:

The Banana Republicans (The Grotesque Old Party) have a stranglehold on Trump’s Death Cult.

In 2016, the basket of deplorables did not include the many people who were conned by Trump and who genuinely believed that he might bring positive change. They were not immoral, only ignorant, infested with a virus of fatuity that pervades the USA, USA, USA.

If you vote for Trump, you are committing an egregiously immoral act. The “I’m just a nitwit” argument is gone. If you read this, you’ve been told. If you still vote for Trump, you’re not just stupid. You’re immoral. Do I need to say it again?

As for me. I’m not stupid enough to believe that this will convince you. I realize that these words will probably make you double down. After all, you have participated, at least vicariously, in Trump’s Screw the Fools road show and Pence’s Finger to the Fools tour.

So go out and vote for the evil clown, for the blaze orange, proto-fascist buffoon. Because he is going to lose anyway. You are going to lose anyway. Because though America is not even close to as good as she should be, she’s better than that. And better than you.

We are going to restore decency and compassion (we even feel sorry for you), words which are not in your vocabulary or in the vocabulary of your malicious messiah and his Republican sycophants.

On the other hand, maybe it’s all right to abet cruel, corrupt criminals, hypocrites, and grifters who lie, steal, conspire, and commit multiple counts of criminally negligent homicide. Who ignore or flat out support white supremacy, voter intimidation, and kidnapping. Who win many elections because they control a persistent, powerful network of individuals and institutions who cheat as a way of life in every election and in everything they do, including unethically, unscrupulously, and corruptly ramming a right wing radical ideologue onto the Supreme Court so that the Republicans can legislate from the bench policies that most Americans oppose. And maybe it’s O.K. to play Russian roulette not only with your own life but also with the lives of all of the innocent people you encounter. Maybe it’s O.K.

I don’t know. I’m just a puzzled puppy.
