Response to ehrnst (Reply #15)

79. I actually typed a response to this post earlier, but thought it was a little snarky, so I didn't

post it. Having now seen, from your responses to others, that snark is your preferred language, I will respond.

To begin, Trump is not my president. He may be yours, but I require a POTUS selected by Americans in a free and fair election, not one preferred and owned by Russians.

Next, that example about the cars was not just lame; it was inaccurate. You see, when the same driver in the same car rear-ends you at a stoplight the 3rd, 4th, 5th etc. time, then yeah, you are "allowing" it.

There was no mention or even an implication in my post that anyone "physically" intervene with Trump, so, cute Ii'l shruggy icons aside, I'm left wondering why you thought a strawman necessary.

We "allow" the Trump regime to continue to consolidate its power as long as we are not doing everything possible to stop him. Some alternatives might not interest you as they involve "coloring outside the lines". "Radical" things like a national strike; several million people converging on the Capitol Building and the White House; civil disobedience on a national scale; in general, lots of "We're mad as hell and we're not going to take this any more!"

I will close by saying that I will not actually respond further to you as we both know that would be useless. Feel free to characterize this as my being a coward or having no answer to your faultless logic. If it makes you feel better, just imagine that, after each of your posts, I respond "WhatEVER!"
