Okay, here goes. These are the men and women I believe are traitors to my America. Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Jeff Sessions, John Kelly, Stephen Miller, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Devin Nunes, John Cornyn, Ted Cruz, Steve King, Trey Gowdy, Jason Chaffetz, Orrin Hatch, Jeff Flake, Bob Corker, Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, Betsy DeVos, Scott Puitt, Wilbur Ross, Ben Carson, Elaine Chow, Ryan Zinke, Steve Mnuchin, former HHS secretary Tom Price, former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, H.R. McMaster, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Wayne LaPierre, and many others who support the Trump administration and are opposed to the needs and wishes of the majority of the American people. There are dozens more and they all have an “R” next to their name on your ballot.
Why do I call them traitors? Look at this definition. We, the people are the country, and all of these individuals refuse to support our needs and our wishes. Special interests have become the priority. If we are the country, they are intentionally destroying our nation.
Treason: “The action of betraying someone or something.”
The very essence of America is in great danger. Every time Trump asks a government official if they are ‘on his side,’ he is adding proof to the reality that it is we, the people, vs our government. We are at war.
We must support the men and women who serve us in Washington, and those we will elect on November 6, 2018. They are the few who believe in democracy, and understand that they are elected to represent us, not their party or those who pay lobbyists to buy votes.
One final question; are you willing to accept a fascist government? Guided by Vladimir Putin, this has been Trump’s goal since June of 2015. His dream is a plutocracy, and a plutocracy cannot exist under a democratic government. The people must be placed in servitude for him to succeed.
Our votes are powerful weapons. If we use that weapon wisely and with great consideration for its effect, we can remove many of the traitors who now control our nation. Paul Ryan, Dean Heller, and others can be removed and replaced with Americans.
Please vote and encourage others to follow your example.
