i agree with you but the fact of the matter is we live in a country where a large percentage of the people agree with trumps' stated agenda. I would be willing to bet that a comprehensive poll, say 150 questions, of WHITE people in the USA and a similar number of russians whose incomes most closely compared to the average wage of the surveyed americans. if the questions would ask about race relations, gender rights, civil disobedience, the military,
i truly believe that the results would be very similar. our ability to, evidently, totally ignore our very recent past is astounding. how many times have you heard someone kvetching about black people referencing slavery, say "well I never owned any slaves and I don't know anyone who has. That was a long time ago". well anyone who has seen jim crow, and understood exactly what they were seeing, anyone that knows what red-lining was, well then it's not that hard to see that this countrys' history suggests that we'd be receptive to someone like trump. now refresh your memory about american public education..generally how we compare with the rest of the world, specifically the average students knowledge of civics. DunningKruger effect writ large over a large percentage of our population. I applaud your efforts and wish you well.
