I think we all need to take a look at Trump’s track record from 2016-2020. I think we’ve all got a bit of amnesia from what happened, and didn’t happen during that time period, because it seems like we’re all moving forward with the 2024 election like it’s a do-over.

Trump had 4 years to fix the issues he’s repeating today. He’s blaming Biden for the state of the nation, when Biden has had to play ‘clean-up’ after the literal shit was smeared on the walls as the fantastic climax to Trump’s presidency and failed re-election.

This man has no sense of responsibility, only finger-pointing. He is mad, which is fine, but men do not blame others for the things they’re responsible for. This has been Trump’s game plan his entire life—what has he ever claimed responsibility for? What wrongs has he ever admitted to?

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I’m sick and tired of this goldfish-memory complex that supposedly has zombified the nation. And for those who are die-hard loyals to Trump, I ask you this: Do you *really* want a civil war? Imagine the day-to-day, the real reality of that type of conflict – being under constant attack, putting your family in danger, for the sake of defending a man who can certainly talk the talk, but can’t walk the walk for anybody but his own narcissistic, hyper-self-centered ego. Is that *really* who you’re willing to die for? Is that really your calling? Or should you hang up the phone, shake your head and move on from the mega MAGA gaslighting parade?

We’re not “Republicans” and “Democrats”. We’re not “Liberals” and “Conservatives”. We’re “Americans.” All of us.

We need to remember that.

I think you’d be surprised as to how similar we all actually are when you tear down the artificial wedge that’s been sledge-hammered between us. “Divide and Conquer” is the name of their game. Is that what you want the American legacy to end up as? Divided and Conquered by those who care not about our constitution, but about their own power?

I know what some of you are thinking, that I’m a hypocrite, that Biden and the hard-left are the ones disregarding the constitution and are power hungry to strip us of our God given rights as Americans. To that, I have one word for you: Projection.

Psychological projection (or projection bias) can be defined as unconsciously assuming that others share the same or similar thoughts, beliefs, values, or positions on any given subject. According to the theories of Sigmund Freud, it is a psychological defense mechanism whereby one “projects” one’s own undesirable thoughts, motivations, desires, feelings—basically parts of oneself—onto someone else (usually another person, but psychological projection onto animals and inanimate objects also occurs). Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting the belief that others originate those feelings.[1]. The principle of projection is well-established in psychology.”

And to you anti-intellectualists: Just because you don’t understand something, doesn’t mean it’s wrong, or doesn’t exist.

    Is very strange. I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it’s over, I don’t know what to do with the rest of my life.

    Have you ever considered piracy? You’d make a wonderful Dread Pirate Roberts.
