An Open Letter to Trump Supporters

The Plight of America under a Trump Presidency is dark and dreary because you poor-working-class folks, were not enough leery, of the promises made by a pathological liar, more interested in having his ego stroked, than real policies invoked by considering all that entails by adults who understand government. A failing nation — devoid of compassion — making the rich richer, the poor poorer, and the sick dying, the uneducated — incapable of global competition — this is all on your head.

As an American, who did not vote for Trump, I sit and ponder the state of mind of those who did. Did they not see or hear what would happen if he was elected? Did they not pay attention to his lifestyle and realize when he complained about the “elite” that he was one of them?

Seriously folks, how many of you — who thought he was against the elite — have a private jet, living in a penthouse, sit on a gold toilet, have private security, and can afford to stay at any of his golf resorts or hotels? Did you really think he cared about people who cannot afford to eat a hamburger at his grill?

Therefore, I ponder — and shake my head — I could not have imagined there would be so many illiterate, uneducated and truly ill-informed people in the world — let alone in the United States.

Now, that your dream has come true — the rest of us must deal with a nightmare. All the regulations that have been in place to protect consumers are being rescinded — no more clean air, clean water, or inspected food and drugs. Public education will join the unwanted toys in the destruction of governmental agencies which would have occurred on its own with Betsy Devos running things — into the ground. The healthcare program most of you complained about — ACA — deemed Obamacare by the Republicans who hated him — is about to end with more than 24 million people projected to lose insurance coverage. Community Block Grant Funds are being slashed so that the Meals on Wheels programs will suffer, after-school food programs for poor children will suffer, and many other state programs who benefit from CDBG funds will cease. How do you feel about your choice now? Were you impacted by any of his cuts?

How about that wall Mexico was going to pay for — according to Trump — how is that coming? Did you expect to have to pay for that after chanting — “Build that wall!”

I’ve concluded you love the feel of the rallies where you can join the asinine chants that mean nothing — you know like, “Lock her up!” So, foolish of you to think that anyone would be locked up who hadn’t been charged with a crime. Did you not learn anything in high school classes about how the law is supposed to work?

Well, here’s what we’ll have so far because of your inability to think beyond your hatred of Hillary and your inability to spot a conman at work: Loss of healthcare, loss of consumer protections regarding our water and air quality, what goes into our drugs and foods, the loss of quality education for public schools, the loss of meals for senior citizens and the prospect of the elderly being priced out of the market for health insurance. A wall/fence will be built at the cost of over a billion dollars and we’ll continue to pay millions per weekend for Tower, Mar-a-Lago and all the other foolishness Trump chooses to engage in to pacify his ego. We have a pipeline being constructed with Russian steel, a secretary of state with Russian ties, and it would seem from all reports — most of the trumpteam has nefarious ties to Russia in one way or another. Is this what you envisioned when you believed the slogan, “Make America Great Again?” Did you not know that America was already great and now, America will be sick and dying from policies enacted by the clown in the white house and only the rich will survive?

I’m praying for all who were gas lighted or drank the shake, numbing brain cells and closing the door on logic.

Think about all you “thought” Hillary did that was corrupt or illegal. It wasn’t! You were deluded by false propaganda and outright lies. How do you feel about the situation now? You accused her of lying and yet Trump lies daily — proving he’s a pathological liar and openly admitting his policies will only benefit the rich. Still trusting him? If you can trust anything he says — on any given day — I have an island for sale. Perhaps, you’d be interested in that — the price is negotiable — starting at just $50. Even you without “good” jobs could come up that, right?
