donald trump is, at 72, a life-long narcissist, who lacks empathy, impulse control, maturity, the capabilities to correlate information,& strategically apply those concepts for the greater good, & any measure of success-either moral,societal,legal or financial.-these are well-documented facts. he will never be anyone else.-he will never understand that tempter tantrums & bullying are not negotiating skills. -pretending that something might change is a codicil to the definitions of insanity.-there is no other interpretation considering the body of evidentiary proof.like the many thousands of life-long republicans, i have renounced the party, because it no longer represents anything i value, nor does it defend the basic premise of the american values i grew up believing were special & unique to our country.what will the remaining supporters consider the omg moment to put a stop to this travesty that abandons children to die, thinks that only we are exempt & deserving, & everyone else is “other” than important, that being bought & paid for is the way to go, & acquisition at any price is acceptable,that is actively destroying our environment, physically, fiscally & morally, harasses & punishes any & all disagreeing voices, or allows those who do it for them to remain unpunished,refuses to offer laws that protect lives, not guns, leave our soldiers & vets to their own devices, instead of protecting & defending them, as they have done for us,refuses to keep wearing the mantle of the leader,protector,defender,beacon of the free world…there is much more, & we all know it. feel free to add to it & pass it on…-my new year’s wish-we must reclaim our humanity, our values, our country & our place in the world as a country that tries, at the very least, to do the right thing…& that is not a negotiable concept, & hasn’t been since biblical times. If we wait any longer before acknowledging the horror this administration has created, & the good it has destroyed, it will bankrupt us in every sense of the word, & leave nearly nothing upon which to build our future.
