Depressed

I am legitimately depressed that Donald Trump could be the Republican nominee for President. This isn’t a flash in the pan or an infatuation – his support is real.

Perhaps Trump is what this nation deserves, though. A nation that would vote for him certainly deserves him.

A large portion of the Republican Party has left me behind – abandoning serious conservatism for loudmouthed celebrities. And not just any celebrity – a fundamentally un-serious fraudulent “conservative” with a long history of supporting gun control and abortion rights and who also enthusiastically supports having government steal people’s homes and give them to private developers.

His popularity stems from not-so-subtle racism and xenophobia in addition to his bellicose, rude, arrogant personality. He plays to fear, hate and bigotry. I don’t want anything to do with that mentality.
