The Ides of March

As we try to size up President Donald Trump and his administration, let’s look at the pros and cons. The negatives far outweigh the positives thusly: He is an advocate for sexual assaults, taking the side of the perpetrator over the victim, has cheated on his wives through extramarital affairs, lying virtually every day, making comments using vulgarity he knows will create controversy, thereby creating divisiveness among voters, and he can’t understand why so many people are anti-Trump and disrespectful.

I have read letters saying the president deserves respect and the office of the president should be respected. Well, many of us respect the office but not the current occupant. When President Trump shows respect for American voters we might reciprocate. 

Between the Russia investigation and his latest silence on the school shootings in Florida again shows the negatives far outweigh the positives. Yes, the economy remains strong and immigration rules have been tightened. His weak leadership and scatter-shot thinking has the free world both laughing and fearful of what this overgrown bully will come up with next. He can be best described as dangerous for our wellbeing by his erratic behavior and actions, all of which are done for his personal gratification. No matter how hard he tries to sell his “I love America,” “I love our military,” it all adds up to “I love me!” I haven’t even mentioned his rolling back regulations that protect clean air, clean water, healthcare, senior care, food, unnecessary offshore drilling for oil and delusion of “clean coal!”

The Ides of March are upon you, Mr. President and Congress. The coming 2018 elections may be the most important life-or-death decision voters ever have to make to survive this evil empire. 

I am of the opinion impeachment would be a good start to put this great nation back on track.
