Trump is a bad president. His supporters can, indeed, point out good things he has done. I do not discount those things. But the shadow looming over the future existence of this country is the national debt. He, along with a Republican controlled Congress, has made it worse.

“But, Dave!” I hear, “Democrats are even WORSE.” Putting aside the questionable veracity of that claim, so what? At best, the conclusion must be that both major parties allow for unabated hemorrhaging.

Accepting either major party is accepting the death of the United States. The hemorrhaging will end. That end will not be favorable for the patient. And members of the two-party system will justify the death by standing over the body and pointing to the other group and saying “they were worse than us.”

That justification will be of no solace to the corpse once known as the United States.

What should a person concerned with the hemorrhaging do? Something else. At the very least, one should stop collaborating with those causing the damage. Even if one, alone, is powerless to stop the hemorrhaging, one absolutely has the power to stop contributing to it. Voting for those responsible is collaboration in the homicide of the United States.

Do not be a collaborator. Without support, the two party system withers and dies. It should.
