Too much is at stake not too!
Trump is a horrible president.
He lies on a scale we haven’t seen in modern presidential history. He attacks the free press relentlessly in a way that is scarily reminiscent of authoritarian leaders and won’t admit when he is wrong or makes a mistake.
He insults and alienates our allies while cozying up to Russian leader Vladimir Putin, a person who is a clear adversary to the United States and democracy as a whole. Trump won’t even admit that Russia interfered in the 2016 election (and is doing so again) despite the fact that every single American Intelligence Agency says Russia did.
Trump’s attacks on the free press in addition to his failure to provide leadership in combating Russian interference in our elections weakens our democracy.
His actions in the Middle East have strengthened Russia’s position in Syria and has increased the likelihood that Iran will become a nuclear power. If Iran goes nuclear, Saudi Arabia will soon follow as they are adversaries.
Trump is worsening Human Caused Climate Change by withdrawing the US from the Paris Agreement and by pursuing policies which increase fossil fuel use while also slowing down change to renewable energy sources. This also hurts the United States economically because renewable energy is the future worldwide. The US should be a leader in this field which would be better both environmentally and economically. Instead, the US is falling behind while other nations such as Germany and China become the leaders.
Trump is trying to pack the Supreme Court with hard right social conservatives. If this continues, many rights, such as same gender marriage and other LGBTQ rights, may be lost.
Also, the national debt is skyrocketing under Trump. This is not economically sustainable.
Folks, the upcoming election is one of the most important events in American history.
That is no exaggeration.
So much is at stake!

And remember, we must all unite behind whoever wins the Democratic presidential nomination. Third party or Independent candidates have zero chance of winning the presidential election. Zero.
The next president will be either the Democrat or Donald Trump.
Let’s be damn sure it’s the Democrat!
And for your information, I’m an Independent myself.
