Some of our readers have expressed a degree of displeasure with how I have been portraying Republicans, especially presidential nominee Donald J. Trump. I have been referred to as, among other things, a "communist" and Hillary's "boy toy".
Anyone who understands the meaning of the term "communist" knows that communism calls for complete government control. Acknowledging the need for government protections against capitalist excess as I do is a far cry from communism. Neither I nor, for that matter, Bernie Sanders espouse anything even close to that hideous label and throwing that label around haphazardly is completely irresponsible or, as they say in Republican politics - business as usual.
As for the other description, I don't know where to even begin to address that depiction, unless it will become a cabinet post.
I will agree, however, that my reaction to a Donald Trump nomination has been rather strong. My reaction, though, is based on my considering Mr. Trump to be the absolute worst, most ill-prepared candidate for any office that I have ever witnessed. Further, in addition to being completely unprepared for the office he seeks which is made abundantly clear by his inability to explain in the simplest of terms how he plans to accomplish any of his rally-rousing sound bites.
