I had a terrible dream last night that Donald Trump was elected president.This was because the contest between him and the Democratic candidate had been reported the same way every presidential contest is reported, and he was treated in the press as the moral equivalent of his opponent -- despite his bigotry, lies, narcissism, xenophobia, misogyny, half-brained policies, and his bullying, and incitement of violence against Muslim-Americans, Mexican-Americans, and black Americans.
I woke up relieved it hadn't happened, and more resolute than ever in making sure it doesn't. Mark my words: Donald Trump is the most dangerous presidential candidate of a major party in American history. The influential Republicans now beginning to back him are risking the future of America and the world. Shame on them. History will not treat them kindly.
What do you think?
Phyllis Carter - It is so obvious, But we are seeing a repeat of Germany in the 1930's. Now we can see how the fascists supported Hitler. Even Canadians are supporting Trump. I think it is because of the corruption that has been going on among the rich and greedy and because of the atrocities committed by the Islamists. Fear and frustration and anger are blinding the Americans. Remember that all American citizens can vote. Not all Americans are intelligent or good or honourable. The vote of a Klansman has the same weight as the vote of a professor. The vote of a drug addict has the same weight as the vote of a Physician. The vote of a rapist has the same weight as the vote of a scientist. Any fool can vote. And it is clear that there are a great many fools.
