Beyond Comprehension

To his supporters, Trump is the second-coming of Reagan… but every day, each passing Tweet, Donald Trump embarrasses himself and our republic.  The most egregious behavior involves the apparent collaboration with Putin’s Russia.  Trump and his acolytes have done little to assuage the concerns of the media or critics; often, going as far as to defend Putin and his authoritarian methods.

Before one of the largest Television audiences in the worldTrump did the unthinkable- he equated the actions of the United States with those of Putin-  all comparisons to Reagan must end immediately.  The President of the United States implied to the world a moral equivalence exists between our republic and the ruthless autocrat in Russia.  Putin’s murders are documented and clearly show the brutal nature of his regime.  Trump’s smarmy innuendo is an indication of both ignorance and  complicity.  Far from making us safer, this man is emerging as a serious threat to our national security.

No comparisons here.

No comparisons here.

Reagan’s call for an end to totalitarianism…  shows just how different the two men really are:

“No, democracy is not a fragile flower. Still it needs cultivating. If the rest of this century is to witness the gradual growth of freedom and democratic ideals, we must take actions to assist the campaign for democracy.”….What I am describing now is a plan and a hope for the long term — the march of freedom and democracy which will leave Marxism-Leninism on the ash-heap of history as it has left other tyrannies which stifle the freedom and muzzle the self-expression of the people.”
