Somebody has to say it, so I will. I never have been one to keep my opinions to myself. If Donald Trump should become the Republican nominee for president and win the presidential election next year, I am moving to another country.
I am not going to tell you if I am a Republican, Democrat, or Independent. That is not important right now. What concerns me is that there are people in this country that are so…I don’t want to say stupid, because that is too negative and it might offend some individuals…but somebody has to say it, so I will…they are so STUPID they’d have Donald Trump be our president! Can you imagine? I can’t, and it scares me that there really are people who think he would make a good leader.
I believe Donald Trump would be a horrendous choice for president for many reasons. Once reason is, he is a bigot. He blames Blacks and Hispanics for violent crime across the country. He said, “When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. They’re sending people who have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re bringing rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
Well Mr. Trump, I believe more than SOME are good people. I spent the better part of my teaching career teaching some of the children of these Mexicans you are referring to, and the majority of these immigrants were honest, hard-working people that only want a better life for their children. My grandfather came to the United States in 1916 at the age of 16, because he wanted the same thing for himself. He experienced discrimination too. Italians were thought of as lazy, garlic-eating guniea. A guinea is a nasty racial slur. It referred to the Guinea Coast of Africa and implied that Italian-Americans were non-white which at the time was very offensive. He was also called a WOP. WOP stands for Without Papers; another insult implying Italians had no official papers in which to identify themselves. In some cases it was true, but not in all cases. Yes, we do need to do something about illegal immigration. But, to say the majority of people that have come illegally from Mexico are bad people is wrong. I don’t want anyone that feels that way representing me as an American to the rest of the world.
Another reason why I would leave the country if Trump became President is that he is a Neanderthal in his thinking about women. According to his daughter Ivanka Trump’s recent statement in a CNN interview, Donald Trump is progressive in his views relating to women. “Otherwise,” she says, “she wouldn’t be an executive in his company.” Well… we don’t know that for sure, do we? What we DO know is what he puts out there publically. We DO know that she is his daughter and most fathers would give the moon to their daughters. What we DO know are the derogatory comments he has publically made about specific women during his bid for the Republican nomination. First about Fox News host Megyn Kelly, “She had blood coming out of her wherever”, and second the comments he has made about Carly Fiorina’s face. Do not even start me on the disgusting things he has said about his daughter. A father should NEVER, I repeat, NEVER go there! Joking or not. Period. End of discussion!
Do we really want a person like that representing the United States?
So my card today is made using an older stamp set; For All Things. Hope you like it.
Once again, I used Stampin’ Up!’s retired spritz tool to “spritz” the background of the card.
Hope you enjoyed your visit today. Until next time…
