Germany in the 1930s had nothing to compare to 2020s America. Oligarchs had nothing but rulership on their insidious minds, and governing is the furthest thing from a certain current candidate’s mind.

Donald Trump is the worst example of a leader since President Eisenhower was in office, when I came into being.

Do we want a person who lies with a straight face and proudly so?

Social equality is what we must all strive for. A vote against tyranny and Trump is the best way to prove democracy really works.
