“A black man walked into a room. Every one in that room was white other than himself. He decided to learn more about this group of mostly men, who were not only white, but also appeared to be over 55 years of age. He thought about it for a minute, and finally spoke to the crowd. ‘If any of you are Republicans, and not a racist, please stand up.’” No one stood.
This is how I feel when I look at any gathering of Republicans, or listen to them speak. Trump, Bannon, Mercer, Sessions, and DeVos are not the only white supremacists in Washington; there are many more. Just listen; really listen to other GOP politicians such as Mitch McConnell, Louie Gohmert, Dana Rohrbacher, Steve King, Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz, and many, many more, and you are suddenly aware of the truth. Washington is filled with 535 men an women and a president who control your life and the lives of your loved ones, and many of them do not believe in American principles and the Constitution.
Every action taken by Republicans in six months has been focused on harming low-income and impoverished Americans; most of whom are minorities. We, the people, are engaged in a war with our own government. Most importantly, we have the most powerful weapon; our vote. We can remove the men and women who refused to work for their paychecks for all eight years of President Obama’s administration. If Republicans are not in control of the House or the Senate, Trump will be powerless.
Do yourself and your family a favor; reject both parties and become an Independent; that’s American.
A final message for millennials; you are not only the future, you are now the largest voting bloc in America. You can change our government and bring back common sense. Freedom is not enough, all Americans must be treated equally. Before Trump’s illegitimate election, we were moving forward and rejecting our Puritanical heritage. We were proud of our diversity. Because our nation now has a white supremacist and a bigot defiling the White House, the worst of America has come from the shadows. It’s your country; take charge and remove all those old, and very white men from Washington.
Please re-post; thank you.
