Snake-oil Salesman

The results of the election have not “proven that God loves us and wants us to be happy” as Tom Maund claims (Nov. 14). The results of this disastrous election prove that too many people listened to the hate-filled, bigoted, racist, fear-inciting, self-serving, and un-Christian rhetoric of a snake-oil salesman. Donald Trump did what all snake-oil salesmen do, he lied and seduced vulnerable people with promises he cannot keep.

Make no mistake about it, Donald Trump cares only about himself, not you, not me, not American families, not the good of our nation or our future. He sought only to see himself crowned Emperor of the United States.

I’m afraid that “the forces of darkness” have not been “vanquished and dispatched to the nether regions of perdition.” They are coming at us in the form of Trump and the line-up of dangerous men he is gathering to serve with him – Gingrich, Giuliani, Bannon, Priebus, all extremists. These radicals will bring the United States to its knees, not in prayer, but in despair.

By the way, Donald Trump did not win the popular vote. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. Perhaps when the final count is in, her numbers will be enough to turn some electoral college states from red to blue, and we will have a true leader in the White House who cares about the American people. Miracles can happen!
