Standing by You


- wish I could be part of voting the grmbl out of there...


Dear South of the Border neighbors,


In usual times, you'll find that this

Isn't a subject which occupies my time.

However, ...


In the last few years, I must say:

What the bloody hell is going on?

And your majority feels the same.


So please, whatever it takes,

Through all the obstacles thrown

Your way this upcoming election

(And there are many!),


You must get the impostor out of there!

Not only for your country's sake,

But at this point, it's for the world's!


These damages need to come to an end...

We're all rooting for you,

And standing by your side...


Tenez bon !

Thank you for the expression of solidarity and compassion! Yes, I cannot contemplate another quadrennium of this toxic buffoon, but as Larry points out, there will still be a host of problems to deal with after he's gone, what Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has called "the infrastructure" of Trump's support-system, and all the forces that enable the racism, etc.

It's a pleasant thought: get rid of Trump and everything will improve. Alas, though it is true that voting Trump out of office will rid us of a vile sociopath, not much else will change. Our government will continue to lurch toward war with China. It will continue to persecute poor, undeserving countries, like Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Venezuela. It will continue to cozy up to absolutely rotten countries, like Israel and Saudi Arabia. It will do nothing to end racism, poverty or grossly inequitable income distribution. In other words, our government will be the malevolent entity that it always has been. As one European diplomat put it, without Trump, America's policies will be the same. It just will have better table manners.

Unfortunately, the way our system works the popular vote does not decide the election, the Electoral College does. If the popular vote decided the election the world would be a very different place today. Neither G. W. Bush nor our current occupier would have won.

You're right, most Americans did not vote for Trump, and despise him passionately.
