Russell Wangersky: How the Internet is like an elephant
Remember that thing you did when you were young? The thing with the statue in the middle of the fountain, the photographs and all that foaming dish washing detergent?
Please consider carefully your choice for president this November.
Do you want to have a president who is so aggressively confrontational any time he perceives he is being personally attacked? Do you want a president who tacitly or otherwise condones sexually assaulting women because he is in a position of power? Do you want to have a president with that mindset dealing with other nations?
It appears that Mr. Trump has an established base of voters who actually believe the claptrap that spews vociferously from his mouth. As Adolf Hitler proved in Germany just before and during World War II, if you tell a lie often and long enough, people will start to believe that it is true. Mr. Trump wants the U.S. voters to believe that the upcoming election is rigged by a corrupt media that is propagating completely false claims of him sexually assaulting several women. He also says that he believes that Hillary Clinton is on performance-enhancing drugs. He has said that if he wins he will jail his main opponent.
This diatribe closely resembles that of Hitler who used similar “logic” to censor the media, jail some political opponents and murder more of them as well as Catholic, Gypsies, homosexuals and over five million Jews; not to mention the millions of innocent civilians and soldiers who lost their lives during the actual war.
Can you imagine this megalomaniac in control of the nuclear codes? In his self-delusional, God-like mindset, he said he knows how to lead the military better than the actual generals themselves! So did Hitler and how did that work out for the world? It is entirely possible that, if elected, you could have a modern day Hitler as your president.
Please realize that this is NOT an endorsement of the other candidates of whom Mrs. Clinton is the frontrunner. Remember that your choice will affect more than just your nation. This is just one very small voice from your ‘neighbours to the north’ who is extremely concerned with the direction that all of this is heading. Please do NOT let history repeat itself!
