All the Donald Trumps
Donald Trump is only the tip of the iceberg.The bigger problem we face in this election, is ALL the Donald Trumps.
All the Donald Trumps, who together, tanked the economy in 2007, because as the presidential candidate Trump said, it was a good time to make money on foreclosures,etc.
It is ALL the Donald Trumps who use war and the military industrial complex as the biggest drain on our economy and sense of safety.
It is ALL the Donald Trumps of this country (and world) who are the real Welfare Cheats. As What just one of them withholds from tax and hides offshore would probably cover any aid to needy families for this whole state.
It is ALL the Donald Trumps of the world who maintain a current medical system that profits on those who can afford it least, and in essence, creates rationing of health care and a two tiered system of care.One for the wealthy and another for those who can't quite afford insurance, co-pays, deductibles or medicines.
And it is ALL the Donald Trumps of the world that reinforce the current status quo of Economic, Social and Environmental Injustice as a way to maintain their oligarchic, Neo-Calvinist stranglehold on the inequities that allow them to hold the power of the pocketbook and keep the system as is.
When Sen. Sanders started his campaign for justice back in the 1980's he spoke of the same inequities and injustices that he carried forth into his presidential campaign this year.
His influence on changing and growing the Democratic platform has moved the mainstream to recognize those injustices and keep the effort moving towards real progress on these issues that ALL the Donald trumps are fighting against.
I will be voting for those issues of Social, Economic and Environmental Justice as I cast a vote for Hillary Clinton and down ticket Democrats. And, I know, as the work of Sen. Sanders carries forward the work of those who came before him, it is up to us and subsequent generations to carry on his work to continue building this imperfect cathedral, we call America. And, just like the cathedral builders of other cultures, we may not see our work completed, but we must do our work well. Well enough, so the building grows upward on it's strong foundation, and each layer of work being worthy and strong enough to support what will come next.
In the short term, it would have been an easier vote, had Sen. Sanders been nominated. But I will jon Sen. Sanders and others to hold our feet to the fire and keep the work moving forward and this cathedral of our Republic, growing upward.
We all deserve no less, as do our children and theirs.
