Being A Destructive Human Being Is Oh So Easy

Donald Trump is proving the point that playing to the angriest man at end of the bar is an easy gig. You don’t have to know or really care about anything. You just have to say the most ridiculous, nasty things that pop into your head with gusto and a bunch of nitwits will love you with all their rotten hearts.

Indeed, when one cares not a wit about consequences the freedom to run over everything is your reward. Of course many innocents will suffer and the floodgates holding back the dishonorable to run wild will quickly open for exploitation.

It has always been claimed that America is a nation of laws not of men. Well, with the Donald having forced himself to the captain’s cabin we all better pray that that premise is correct.

For a long time the Republican Party has been catering to the nation’s lesser angels, but hopefully a few years of Dr. Strange-love Trump mucking up the government will break that fever before the GOP’s disease kills our once great nation. Thank God for a few good Republicans like Senator John McCain and the bold lady Senator from Vermont.
