Now that most credible pundits on each side of the political spectrum have weighed in on the subject of a certain candidates’ mental capacity, let me add mine.
Newspapers, political supporters and blogsters all are waking up to the fact that we have dug ourselves a pretty deep hole in Wonderland, as in Alice in Wonderland.
Black is white, up is down and off with their heads!
What must our neighbors think of us?
They probably shake their heads and wonder how far we have to fall down the rabbit hole before we come to our senses.
Trying to explain our political life to my grandson is going to be difficult, and I would start by saying that we have a bit too much freedom.
This freedom to talk and act is not always in our best interests.
We do not play well with others, and produce people with mindsets that are totally selfish, while they claim to be Christian.
Having a leader that has insulted just about everybody but himself is not the road to success.
In Donald Trump we have a shadow of a man, who may have bargained and cheated his way to the top of the real estate game, but is woefully ignorant of how our country works. He has no idea of what a few wrong words in a touchy international crisis can set off.
He insults women, Hispanics, Muslims, war veterans, babies, and anyone who opposes him.
He rarely says anything about what he actually stands for, but regales his supporters with bombastic tirades that include the word “I” way too much.
He loves himself. His followers, like maddened sleepwalkers love his vitriolic tirades against all those that oppose him, and are lead to outrageous chanting about the opposition. This is not only rude, but dangerous. When we create the “Other” to hate, we are broadcasting to the world that we are not capable of rational thinking.
So- can I call Donald Trump crazy?
