To The Daily Sun,
Dark days ahead ... bleak ... at best. This nation, under President Trump, along with Steven Bannon in the West Wing, others who will be appointed to his administration, and thousands of other political appointees are posed to do considerable damage to the well-being and safety of the citizens of this country over the next four years. The damage created will just about wipe out all of the good that President Obama has done for this country during the eight years of his administration.
Those on the right have been sharpening their talons while waiting for this day to come. The GOP/Tea Party is going to take us back to the time when parents taught their children that babies were delivered by the stork. The handwriting is on the wall. The GOP/Tea Party is going to try, with the blessings of the extremists, every tactic in their playbook to wipe out all of the accomplishments achieved by President Obama, one by one.
We must give our full support to those in Congress who will try to keep our government of checks and balances in place. We must continue to ask for moderation, and reject extremism. Now more than ever all citizens have to protect and defend our democracy. We cannot forget that many moderate clear thinking GOPers did not vote for or support Trump. Millions upon millions of voters were able to see through the lies and smokescreen.
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was recently interviewed by Matthew Weaver of The Guardian UK. During this interview he said in part, "He [Trump] goes into this White House as the least popular presidential candidate in American history. Trump's agenda is a minority agenda, not supported by most people. Our job is to mobilize and educate and to fight back at every instance."
I am truly frightened to the core of my very being. Scary and very sad! Fasten your seat belts folks, it's going to be a very rough ride for liberals, moderate Democrats and Republicans with their fair-minded agenda. During Trump's campaign (or should I say scorched earth march) we were witness to just the tip of a huge conservative iceberg.
We now have no other choice but to believe that what he has advocated will come to pass.
