My initial understanding that something called a ‘presidential election’ entered my consciousness in 1940 when I was ten. For the most part, this important election entailed a conflict between two men–women had yet to become part of this conflict– and they discussed important issues. The conduct of the Cold War, civil rights, right of people to have unions, and economic policies that impacted the lives of most Americans.
For the life of me, I have no idea what this election is all about. Donald Trump argues for: Make America Great Again, get rid of Muslims, one way or another, crime is sweeping through the nation, we have to protect policemen from getting killed, and emails and Foundations– not his own. He is going to “wipe out ISIS.” But, as of this date, a month before ballots are cast, Mr. Trump has yet to outline ONE specific action other than: Build A Great Wall.
And yet, millions adore this man who wants to make America Great Again. Great in which respect? The word, “again”implies the US is NOT a great nation. If not, then what is it? Trump supporters are without question the most ignorant group to ever exist in this nation. But, over and over, I wonder– HOW THE HELL DID WE GET IN THIS SITUATION?
