My guess, is that due to the title of this blog, you think I am going to talk about religion. You would be wrong. I am going to talk about how enough people in this country voted for and continue to believe that an inherently evil man can help them. It says something vile about the state of this country that a TV celebrity can convince so many people so easily that he is somehow the one to follow in spite of his obvious shortcomings. How they could blindly vote for a man who has never endured hardship, never wanted for anything, has been taught to hate and bully others, who files bankruptcy as a means of getting out of paying the very people who voted for him, hates on minorities, women ( don’t you have sisters and daughters?) and anyone “different” and refuses to care about anything except himself and his immediate family. This is our PRESIDENT people! Add to that his inability to change and an infantile, bully mentality and we “have a problem”.
We have become a nation obsessed with media and unfortunately much of that media is geared toward the uneducated. Why? Because, as Trump as said himself “I love the uneducated.” The poorly educated are more susceptible to believing everything they read. They can be more easily manipulated. They love to gossip. Rich and powerful people depend on this mind-set to stay rich. Why do you think he continues to campaign telling lie after lie to his base?
At his last rally he continued to tell numerous blatant lies and his base soaked it up. They, in turn will continue those lies. They will continue the violence against anyone not white, male and straight. He knows this, he DEPENDS on this. He knows he must keep his uneducated base on his side. Why do you think Trump has surrounded himself with billionaires in his cabinet? Because they are people who understand and agree with him. They are arrogant, feel themselves superior and will do anything to stay that way. They exist on POWER, it’s their fuel. They will lie knowing that their uneducated fan base will support anything they say, and then they will steal from that base without qualm because they frankly despise the very people who voted for them. In fact, the only people they are threatened by and fear are those who don’t fall for their lies. People like me and millions of other Americans who know better. Be us.

Don’t cave, don’t ignore, don’t stop resisting this president and cabinet. Don’t believe what you read without verification. Don’t repeat headlines without actually reading the article. Be us. Stop being led, lead. Be us.
