The Consequences of Republican Lies
I can't let it slide any longer. If you still support Donald Trump after knowing he had planned with Roger Stone and Steve Bannon, Proud Boys and others to claim fraud months before the election, you are complicit in the destruction of our democracy. This is the same plan Stone had for Richard Nixon in the past, just claim you won, yell fraud and throw it to the courts, knowing Democrats have the tendency to follow the courts, as they did in Gore v Bush, only to find out Al Gore actually did win that election. Imagine what we might have avoided, I think 911 would still have happened, but I don't think we would have invaded Iraq. Another reminder of the consequences of republican lies.
I was watching the Jan. 6 committee's work session where they voted to subpoena Donald Trump to testify about the mounds of evidence against him, and after seeing it I can no longer let it slide. Trump and his cronies have been caught red-handed attempting to subvert our democracy, and yet there are still people who continue to support him. I don't understand how anyone can look at the facts and still stand by this man.
Trump has been caught on tape bragging about assaulting women, he's been accused of sexual assault by many women, he's been caught in lie after lie after lie, and yet his supporters continue to turn a blind eye. Even worse, they actively spread lies and misinformation about Trump's opponents in an attempt to discredit them. This isn't normal or acceptable behavior from any human being, let alone the Former President of the United States. It's as if once Trump knew he lost he acted furiously to fulfill Putin's wishlist. Trump and his cronies have been caught red-handed attempting to subvert our democracy. After this work session we now know Trump is dangerous, he ordered a complete withdrawal from Afghanistan after he knew he had lost the election. Knowing he was setting Biden up for failure, and even so with all we know now, Biden did one hell of a job making sure it was not a complete disaster, and then trump knowing this attacked Biden for the withdrawal over and over and republican voters seem to eat this up, it's disgusting. With all we know about Trump's connections to Russia, it's hard not to see this as anything other than an attempt to further Putin's interests. Trump has shown time and time again that he is not interested in what's best for America, only what's best for himself. And yet, here we are. Donald Trump is still acting as if he is the President, despite having lost the election by over 7 million votes. He is a President whose been impeached twice. He is still a freeman despite being caught red-handed trying to incite a violent insurrection against the United States government. And his supporters are still backing him up every step of the way. Let's hope the January 6th Committee's work leads to changing that!
I don't know what it will take for people to finally wake up and realize that Donald Trump is a dangerous man who needs to be removed from office as soon as possible. But I do know that we need to keep fighting until he is gone for good. We owe it to ourselves and to future generations.
Donald Trump is a dangerous man who is actively trying to destroy our democracy. If you are still supporting him at this point, you are complicit in his actions. Wake up and realize what he is doing before it's too late.
