Election day 2020 is lest than 13 months away. Like most informed Americans I have believed that the Republican Party’s cowardice was based on fear. Abandoning Trump and doing the right thing for America might cost them votes on election day. We are also aware that all Republicans share some of Trump’s vile beliefs; specifically, white supremacy, Islamophobia, homophobia, misogyny, and a feeling of superiority over our nation’s low-income and impoverished citizens. However, I can’t help but believe that some men and women on the right have not abandoned all of their morals and principles. I can hope, can’t I?
The biggest problem facing the people of the United States is a domestic enemy. Our greatest danger is from domestic terrorism. Abraham Lincoln said: “At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.” January 27, 1838.
Our greatest enemy is the right wing, supported by its propaganda machine, Fox Noise. This fake-news agency’s intention is to brainwash week-minded Americans and divide us forever. It’s obvious the goal which began in 1986 is succeeding. Every ‘Republican in name only’ supports Trump without admitting that he is destroying democracy and removing our freedoms. For the majority of Americans, the right-wing has become the enemy of the people. They lie and attempt to misdirect the truth with false allegations against real and patriotic Americans.
Republican politicians have followed the lead of Fox and are spreading conspiracy theories which are entirely baseless, hoping that their brainwashed supporters will believe them. They are not Americans; they are traitors to the people of our nation. They must be removed from office.
Republicans and Fox Noise also ignore the fact that the greatest danger to all Americans is domestic terrorism. With more mass shootings than days on the calendar, white, right-wing men with military weapons are slaughtering true patriots at an alarming rate.
By ridding our nation of its real enemy, the right-wing, we can restore the beliefs and ideals of our founding fathers.
Impeach Trump and remove his hypocritical party from Washington.
