Three Hundred Forty-Two

I’ve never been more concerned about the future of the United States of America than I am now. I fear the growing popularity of Donald Trump, with his bombastic racist and nationalist diatribes and his naked Islamophobia, offers evidence that I live in a nation of idiots who are rushing to welcome an era of fascism. It was fear that gave rise to the shame of Japanese internment camps after Pearl Harbor; it is fear and stupidity that gives rise to calls for immigration tests based on religious beliefs.

    John, Trump scares the hell out of me and I feel so helpless against all his “followers”. I didn’t realize there were so many brain dead people out there. What has happened to the United States I have known for 8 decades?

    Radicalizing…..religion as an early training agent for children….short sighted fear. If you believe in heaven, hell, angels and gods, then you can be radicalized and made to believe anything.

    And then, too, Media is the 4th leg of the American government.
