If Trump had not been impeached, it would be a crime against the Constitution and the nation of our founding fathers. However, if the ‘right thing’ had not happened, Trump is still guilty of many crimes against his country. He is public enemy number one.
Let’s begin with the duties and responsibilities of the President of the United States. It begins with his oath of office at his or her inauguration. He or she must promise to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. Trump has failed to keep that oath. His numerous violations of the Law of the Land prove that he is unfit to be our nation’s leader.
His or her mandate is to serve all Americans. Trump has been openly honest; if you do not support him, he does not support you. If he ignores this responsibility, he cannot be accepted as our nation’s legitimate president. He will never be mine and I hope he will never be yours.
Trump has a duty to place the future of the nation he is intended to lead ahead of his own gratification and financial success. Trump places his ego ahead of our nation. He continues to use the treasury as his own personal bank and the combined result has placed our nation into a historical level of debt. Another Republican’s failed economic policies will become a huge problem for his successor.
When Trump took office on January 20, 2017, our nation had 585 billionaires and 10.1 million millionaires. Three years later there are 704 billionaires and 18.6 million millionaires. This one percent of Americans are the only men and women who experience the quality of life promised to all of our nation’s people. Income inequality is growing every day. Fascism is replacing democracy as capitalism is allowed to destroy the very meaning of the Constitution.
DJT is the enemy of the working class, low income Americans, and the poor. He serves the super-rich and ignores the future of the majority of our nation’s 330 million people. He and his party have become the enemy of the great majority.
The Republican Party no longer exists. We must remove all of these pretenders from Washington. Please, please vote.
