“If people respect you, respect them back. If people disrespect you, RESPECT THEM BACK.” It’s common courtesy.
When it came to politics, I honestly tried to keep my temper and not shame one side over the over. Yes, I am a liberal, but I wasn’t one of the people going around and spreading hate about Trump. This latest decision on his part has pushed me over the edge.
Here is a short clip of what I’m talking about.
Really? Please, someone explain to me the benefits of destroying good relations with one of our top 3 trade nations and one of our closest neighboring countries? Mexico’s president and America’s were scheduled to meet in the near future, but Mr. Enrique Nieto called it off earlier today due to Trump’s disrespectful demands. Trump claims the cancel was mutual, and that he refused to meet with a country that doesn’t give him respect.
Who is he to speak of respect? He who mocked the behavior of a disabled reporter? He who assumes it’s acceptable to grab a woman’s pussy? He who, surrounded by a cabinet just like him, signed away a woman’s rights over her own body which will inevitably lead to backdoor, hanger abortions? He who thinks stereotyping all Muslims as terrorists and Mexicans as rapists or drug dealers is the answer to our problems? He who hasn’t ceased to abuse what power wealth has given him? He whose every word is hypocritical of the last?
Some things he’s engaged in I respected, like disagreeing with the current Obamacare. I consent that it needed some additions and editing, but to remove it completely is pure ignorance. Well over 11 million Americans depended upon Obamacare to assure that they as well as their families were getting the health care every human is entitled to. So fine, repeal the Affordable Care Act, but for the love of God, have a replacement first. Think of the lives that could be lost because they can no longer afford the hospital visits for cancer or depression. A very personal example involved a friend (who will remain nameless for their family’s protection) whose older siblings are in need of treatment for Brittle Bone disease. These treatments cost thousands and thousands of dollars each month. Obamacare made that possible. Now that it’s gone … Of course, I plan on helping them in any way possible.
This is just one example. There are so many others I could go into, especially banning legal abortions and preventing funding for organizations like Planned Parenthood. I don’t like the idea of killing a child, either, but it isn’t our choice. It is the choice of the woman whose womb will be affected by the decision.
I have nothing against those of you who support him. You are entitled to your opinion as I am mine. I just beg you all to think about what his reckless behavior could bring upon the civilians who call this country home.
