Believe me when I tell you that the LAST THING I could POSSIBLY want would be to vote for Donald Trump. Thatís why I am so stunned that you have taken it upon yourself to go to such lengths to FORCE me to vote for him! You sick, sick monster! I donít even like him, not even one little bit. So I hope youíre happy with what YOU are making me do, which comes to me as a total surprise and is definitely not a foregone conclusion in any way.

Over the past four years, Trumpís ominous shadow has devoured everything that was precious about America, chewed on it and spat out only bones and gristle. This has slightly obscured the accomplishments of his administration, which include, if I am remembering right (DONíT TELL ME IF IíM NOT; THAT WILL MAKE ME ANGRY, AND YOU KNOW WHO ANGRY PEOPLE VOTE FOR), ending the budget deficit and doing whatever it was Abraham Lincoln did, but better and faster.

Do I think Trump has the attributes necessary for governing? Absolutely not! He is a dangerous man, and every day we spend under his leadership is a day we lose a precious share of the worldís respect that we may never regain. Thereís definitely not a ďBut!Ē coming after such a strong and overwhelming condemnation of his leadership.
