Over the weeks and months I have learned and have used twitter to laugh, criticize and talk about Trump and how he is destroying our culture, government and nation through his narcissistic attitude and his inept ability to govern. He is like a spoiled child that throws temper tantrums in a man’s body.
I’m a Republican and a conservative but in saying that, I despise everything about this man. Just because Trump says he is a Republican dosen’t mean we should blindly follow him and over look the damage he is doing.
I decided to go to twitter to express my thoughts and feelings in the hope that in a small way, I can change maybe one, two or more people’s minds about Trump.
The Group of 35
I have followed and being followed by mostly liberal democrats because I want to align myself with people that feel the same way I do about Trump. A few days ago (I’m still learning about twitter) I got into a conversation or tweets with a group of 35 people.
Now my phone is going off often saying I have tweets that mention me in conversations (We all hate Trump) which is fine but here is what I want to say to these 35 other people.
Most are great, understanding people and they like me love the give in take on discussions about Trump. There are a few others though that sometimes I feel like I’m walking on egg shells when I tweet.
Examples: I had one person that said Republicans like me need to do more then tweet after I said I have lost friends over my outspoken views on Trump and I have tweeted many times a day against Trump. They replied and said its not enough to tweet you need to get get boots on the ground and that went viral in our group of 35.
I do what I can
Im not young any more and I work lot and even give plasma in my off time off to make ends meet. I do what I can as other people do against Trump. We all can’t get boots on the ground. Other people in this group paint all Republicans as hateful and racist. Thats simply not true.
Another tweet that got tons of thumps up was someone that said they served in the Army in Europe and defended against the idea of the wall they had in Germany, dividing the East and West. I wanted to say it was very different. They wanted to keep people in their country, not because they wanted people to come into their country.
I don’t know if we need a wall or not but the messenger is wrong. This is not a Democrat or Republican thing its whats best for our country, We need to unite to get this mad man out of office. An enemy that is against my enemy is my friend. Let’s get rid of Trump then go from there.
My feeling on Immigrants
I don’t want to get off topic but my great grandparents were immigrants and I have nothing at all against immigrants. Mexico is a place I would love to retire too I love the warmth of the people there and the ones I know in the United States.
My daughter married in to a big Mexican family. There are reasons certain people voted for Trump and they a don’t hate or are racist. They have reasons and to defeat Trump we have to address these reasons and address them. Im not saying these reasons are correct but we need to find out reasons why people do things they do.
