I believe I’ve discussed, probably ad nauseam, my feelings toward Mr. Trump since he first announced his intention to run for president. In the 3+ years he’s been in office, nothing he’s said or done has given me any cause to change my mind. There are so many things I despise about his administration such as: the blatantly rampant corruption, the attempted trampling of the Constitution (“phony” emoluments clause anyone?), the stance on immigration, the persistent racism and bigotry, the steady erosion of equal rights and protections for the LGBTQ community, the consistent attacks on a woman’s right to choose, the daily attacks against the press and the First Amendment, the constant lying day after day after day after day… I’m so much angrier than I used to be, and honestly, I’m getting worn down. Most days I obsessively worry over why he still has so much support, what this says about us as a country and what will happen if he’s re-elected. As evidenced by us pulling our support for the Kurds, what happens here in the United States has far-reaching repercussions. No we don’t want our soldiers to be entangled in endless wars, but should we so blithely abandon our allies as soon as our personal goals have been achieved? Late last week, a US military wife wrote an open letter to the Kurdish people. As she says, these are not “nameless, faceless people across the world.” Please, if you haven’t already, take a minute or two and read her words.
