Sometimes I Have Apocalyptic Nightmares . . .

 . . . and I dream that a huge number of my fellow Americans think that a vulgarian with a fourth grade vocabulary and a kindergarten mentality would be a good president for the USA. I imagine this egotistical, know-nothing, bloviating disaster engaged in talks with leaders of other countries and I wake up shaking, hardly able to breathe.

Then I am faced with the chilling realization that I'm even more terrified by the smarmy, evangelical, would-be Messiah that is the alternative on the (R)ight side of the ticket.

Someone wake me up again.

Remember that bit from a few months ago that Canada should be president of the USA?

I'd vote for Trudeau in a heartbeat!

All my republican history is just aghast. No wonder I'm a liberal democrat. I like that there are places saying they'll welcome refugees from the us if the GOP is supposedly our leadership

I'M SERIOUSLY THINKING ABOUT MOVING TO NEW ZEALAND IF THAT ego monster moves into the white house. He would probably put up a neon sign TRUMPS WHITE HOUSE. HE WOULD RENT OUT VARIOUS ROOMS FOR $100,000 a night, claiming to help bring down the national dept, then declare bankruptcy to really cure our dept problems (he has the experience). Oh me I feel sick.

I couldn't agree more. If only it were just a bad dream...

I have those same nightmares. Trouble is, I'm wide awake. Can't bear to watch much of what's being reported. Wouldn't watch any of it except I don't want to be completely uninformed. The scariest thing is how many people actually believe what they're being told and are caught up in the hysteria of hate. Though not especially a Paul Harvey fan, I used to take comfort in his quote "In times like these it helps to recall that there have always been times like these" - but that's not helping at this point.
