Fellow Americans, you better wake up to the dangerous waters the Trump administration is leading us into.

In less than two years, he has exploded the national debt through a tax reform that mostly benefits the wealthy. Through this action and his emasculating of Obamacare, he has jeopardized the future of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Through his environmental deregulations, we no longer have the right to clean air and water. Through his denial of and inaction toward climate change, he has condemned our children and grandchildren to the effects of a warming planet. 

By his erratic behavior and threats of withdrawal, he has weakened the global alliances that have kept the expansionist policies of Russia and China in check. His Supreme Court nominations and lifelong appointments of judges to lower courts threaten woman’s rights and the LGBTQ community. His crude, rude, lying behavior has demeaned the office of the presidency.

Is all this worth ignoring merely because the stock market continues to go up (a carryover trend from the Obama years)? Before it’s too late, we must dump Trump. His actions threaten our democracy.
