Sen. Warren Speaks

The criticisms of Trump we are hearing from the speakers are right.  And yet, and yet.  When we have knowledgeable, smart people expressing concerns of some sort of Trump coup and an ability to ignore the Constitution, is this lower level of criticism really relevant?  Do you know what I mean, dear reader?

Recent posts here based on the insights of several talented writers have shown a very dark side to Donald Trump.  It is not for nothing that Trump is being compared to Mussolini.  Maybe the speakers at the Democratic convention feel it is not politic to make such comparisons but I have no such strictures.  I am a blogger, not a book writer -- at least not yet.  But I do what I can do.

So America has a choice.   But it is not a normal partisan political choice.  It is a choice between, as Sen Warren is saying, our values and the values of the privileged few.  But it is also a choice between democracy and demagoguery.  There simply is no other way to put it.
