Listen To The Voice of Reason

Republicans elected Trump.

Most of the blame for Donald Trump’s behavior lies squarely in the lap of the Republican party. Why? Simple-Republican voters elected him. He could not vote and elect himself into office. Many Republican lawmakers have known Trump for a long time and know him well. They know his reputation as a cheat, scoundrel and habitual liar. Disregarding and ignoring this knowledge, they convince those who put them in office that Trump would be an excellent President. Some even proclaimed that Trump was sent by God. They convinced millions of Republican voters that Trump was the answer to all of their ills.
Trump came on the spot, proclaiming that if voters elected him, he would solve all of the ills of this nation. He was going to undo everything the Obama Administration imposed on America. Republican voters were blindsided by Trump and Republican Lawmakers. Many Republican voters were unsure if Trump was the right person to run this nation, but their fears were lessened by the messages broadcasted by Republican lawmakers. Add Fox and Conservative Right Wing Talk radio and you have the recipe for the disaster we have in the White House.
There continues to be lingering questions. How did Trump convince Republican lawmakers to support him for President? How has he convinced them to continue to support him, despite obvious reasons to withdraw their support? What has he done to cause Republican Lawmakers to totally cease and abstain from their Constitutional responsibility of Congressional Oversight?
It is easy to see how Trump managed to get the support of his staunch supporters. He appealed to their sense of losing things to which they are entitled . He talked about them being forgotten. He talked about how the Obama Administration had shunned them and did not have their best interest in mind. Those fearing their jobs being overtaken by the hoards coming across our southern border were consumed by Trump’s rhetoric. Remember, he was going to build the wall, and Mexico was going to pay for it.
Trump was going to make America great again. Never once did he tell them what era, decade, or century he felt America was at its greatest. Trump talked about cutting taxes, and at the same time drawing down the national debt. Republican lawmakers knew he was lying, but failed to tell America voters he was lying. When Trump’s behavior is questioned, Republican lawmakers quickly come to his defense and words like non-support for the President, patriotism, loyalty and treason are tossed into the equation.
Millions Americans arrived at the conclusion that the election of Trump to the Presidency of The United States, was a mistake, but were willing to sit back and hope he would grow to be Presidential. Never mind the fact that one can not do what they do not know how to do. He does not have the intellect, attitude and aptitude to behave differently than he does on a daily basis.
It is unclear why voters felt Trump could do little damage to the American way of life in four years. Wrong! He has done a lot of damage in two years. If he is removed from office prior to the end of his term, look who is waiting in the wings-Pence. Some say he is worse than Trump because he puts a Christianity spin on many of his decisions is instrumental in causing many Christians to forgo their beliefs to support Trump, Entirely too many of the Christian faith are disregarding his behavior, behavior characteristics they, at one time deemed as disqualifications to hold the office of President of The United States.
Republican voters, you are the main reason Trump is President. You are the main reason there is so much corruption in the White House. You are the main reason so many people associated with Trump have been convicted of wrongdoing and will serve time in jail.  Try as you may, you cannot ignore the fact that you put him in office.
Entirely too many Trump supporters have taken on the Trump attitude, which is, I am never wrong, and everything is always someone else fault. For the sake of America, admit you made a mistake, and go about the business of righting many of the wrongs Trump has imposed on this Nation.
