66. To Trump Voters: Really?

13 Aug

Why are you voting for Trump? He thinks you are stupid. He says that his fans are so devoted that he could kill someone in downtown N.Y. and they would not care.

He tells you obvious lies because he thinks that you don’t reason very well and will not detect them. For example, he says that Hillary enabled her husband Bill in his affairs. That is not what she said and his numerous apologies at the time, suggest otherwise. Trump’s lie comes from a distortion of the fact that she helped him with bogus lawsuits. This exemplifies his method of changing facts to support his rants.

You originally voted for him because he said that he was entirely self-supporting and could not be corrupted. Now he is accepting and soliciting donations. This is clearly reported in the news.

He says that our military is a disaster. Another lie — military leaders and other experts feel that our military is as strong as ever and best of all nations.

He developed a procedure of communication that assumes that you will not research anything that he says. He thinks that you are so ignorant that you will just accept everything he says.  He proposes a gigantic expensive wall that will be paid for by Mexico — ignoring the fact that Congress would have to approve it, which they would not do. Mexican leaders have already said that they absolutely would not pay for it. He does not discuss all the ways that this expensive wall could be circumvented — like flying over, digging under, going by sea, going through checkpoints with false ID, coming in from other countries, etc, etc. He just assumes that you can’t figure this out.

He lied about an early condemnation of the Iraq war, he lied about Hillary wanting to raise taxes for the middle class, he lied about his business successes, and he refuses to let you see his income tax returns. He has insulted women, Mexicans, NATO allies, Muslim nation allies, many Republican leaders, disabled people, military men, and others. His emphasis is on revenge rather than on making productive alliances.  He supports torture even though President Reagan was against it.

But you say you don’t care about all these things, because when he takes office he will really be on your side and do wonderful things for the middle class. But why would you think that? He tells countless lies so why would you believe anything he says. He often changes his mind. His past behavior is selfish and full of failures where he profits and other are cheated (like those joining Trump University). His original written budget lowers taxes so much for rich folks that our country would soon be bankrupt.

He claims all sorts of abilities, but all these are related to business and not to a presidency. Creating construction jobs has no relation to the way a president would have to create jobs, which is by a complicated promotion of favorable economic conditions and job creating projects. He would have to work with Congress to achieve this and he has already alienated numerous congressmen.

So if you still are for Trump, have you really considered why? Ignoring what he says (words are cheap), has he actually done anything that would suggest a presidency that would help you? Have you researched the facts? Maybe your problem is limiting your choices to Republicans. Maybe the other party can do more of what you want.
