Still trying to keep America on the right path.

My apologies up front if this offends, but I feel I must do my utmost to try to ensure voters they are voting smart.

Let me say up front that I am an American, not for the left or right, more for the middle.  I voted for Reagan.  I vote for what and who I feel is best for America at the time.

With that out of the way let get to the point of this thought. I listened to a song by Michael Jackson the other day named ‘Man In The Mirror’ and it brought to mind that it  would be a great suggestion for Trump supporters.  Maybe some would realize the mistake they are about to make – re-electing Trump – and realize that: “Despotism corrupts the person who submits to it far more than the person who imposes it!” — Alexis de Tocqueville.

And here is the definition of Despotism: 

Despotism is a form of government in which a single entity rules with absolute power. Normally, that entity is an individual, the despot, as in an autocracy, but societies which limit respect and power to specific groups have also been called despotic.

Synonyms for Despotism:

Autocratic · dictatorial · totalitarian · authoritarian · absolute · absolutist · arbitrary · unconstitutional · undemocratic · antidemocratic · uncontrolled · unaccountable · summary · one-party · single-party · autarchic · monocratic · tyrannical · oppressive · tyrannous. 

Several of these synonyms are definite signs  that some of Trump’s actions, executive orders, etc. are despotic,  like telling schools what they should or shouldn’t teach and most recently, the order that basically give anyone in his administration the right to fire, replace, anyone they do not feel is subordinate enough.

Have I nice day and be sure to VOTE.

  1. I am a Democrat, who is solidly Democratic. I have always been and always will be. However, I have to admit that I have not been that the nation has never been as adversely affected by Republicans before. trump is simply a different animal, and I have thought for the longest that he is all about an authoritarian, dictator style form of government.

    Even Nixon did a few good things, but trump has done little or nothing fo rmost of us, including many that voted for him.
