I am not Democrat, Republican, Liberal, nor Conservative; I am American, nonpartisan. I believe the United States Constitution is one of the greatest documents ever written, our greatest defense against tyranny, from within and without. By its words, we all have the right to speak freely, presuming that no harm shall befall others from our words.
The Constitution, were it human, might weep, flowing into outrage at the obscenity that has become our political process and those who would “lead” us, or is that “push” us (over a figurative cliff)? Mildly put, both major party candidates are extremely distasteful to me. However, Donald Trump has gone beyond the pale and in my view is the most dangerous to our way of life and how we strive to be.
I am incensed, angry and baffled by his recent seditious comments, asking any foreign power to hack into any American’s computer systems for his own egomaniacal gain. “Hacking” is a euphemism for invading our privacy and our sovereignty. It would be an invasion.
Russia and Putin may be Trump’s friends, but they are not ours.
