10. I wish I could share your belief that our government will save us

They will not. We will stand and save ourselves or we will stand and die, but nothing in a ballot box is going to help. The fix has been in for a long time. We must record this time.

3. Trump is hardly the first racist president. Many were. Wilson, Jackson, and what about . . .

the slaveholder presidents?

No, Trump is not unique in that regard.

4. First Racist President, eh?

Below is a link regarding slavery on George Washington's Mount Vernon Plantation. Because we are in the age of absurdity, I guess I have to say it: Slavery was racist. Slavery was bad. Slavery was evil.

5. I don't know about first racist.

 

If you said "from first black President back to racism in the White House" I'd agree.

9. I don't see President Obama as the opposite of Hitler

But, if you look at the world, we are heading into another authoritarian time, the likes of which haven't been seen since Hitler, Mussolini,Stalin and the mess that is always the ME. So, Trump is part of Brexit, authoritarians throughout the world, even Merkel, who should know better, is trying to mess with Muslims.

Frankly, this is a highly dangerous time in which, we, the proles, have little say. But what little say I have, I'm going to say it loud.

More than anything, we must record. Whether our Empire dies now (I think it is) or if we dodge this nuclear bullet, we still must document what is happening.
