4. Two of my neighbors here in suburban Philadelphia have Trump signs on their lawns

I live in Bucks County, home of the liberal Republican, and when my next-door neighbor, a young man who owns his own landscaping business, put out a Trump sign--the only one I'd seen in my travels around here--I kind of understood. He's a little wacky about gun rights (he has a freezer full of dead foxes he shot; he's planning to make his wife a coat), and really had very little parenting (alcoholic mother and absent father) so he feels like the world is out to get him. On the other hand, he employs exclusively Mexicans in his business, and who knows their immigration status

But then yesterday a neighbor two houses up the hill put out a Trump sign, and my heart sank. This is a "normal" family, and I am afraid to ask them why they are supporting Trump. I never imagined I'd actually be scared to talk politics with my neighbor.

My daughter-in-law showed up with a No Trump No Way bumper sticker, and I am afraid someone will vandalize her car.

Something is so wrong here. As horrifying as it is to contemplate a Trump presidency, I am almost more concerned about what will happen when he loses--as he must.
