64. ... for this country, for democracy, for the right to pursue life liberty and happiness, but

May 22

maybe not fight for ALL of its people.

Because the way I figure it, it shouldn't even BE a close race. The idea that so many supposedly good, honest, decent people can even THINK to support this criminal dictator wanna be - this evil Mfkr,

who's backed by A CULT of malicious, hateful, fascist, racists, anti-Semites, and white supremacists, is A FUCKING DISGRACE in the eyes of the entire world.

I care about this country. My home. But there's a whole LOT of people I personally couldn't give a flying fuck about.

Not any more.
