The Madness of Trump

Cicero said it best when he said, "The wise are instructed by reason; ordinary minds by experience, the stupid by necessity, and the brutes by instinct".  This is the era of the madness of Trump.  Reasonable people can disagree and do so with passion, but the lies and disingenuous of the Trump administration is a disaster.  
Trump's attack on the free press is destructive to American Democracy.  While the free press can be manipulated at times and lie like Fox and Breitbart do, it remains the guardian of Democracy.  It is there to shine the light of day on those wishing to hide their dirty deeds in the darkness of conspiracy and special interest.  
His policies are a disaster with our allies, his support of dictators and enemies a powerful and potential threat to all Americans and the rest of the world. The sooner he is out of office the better for our country.  
This may be the most dangerous time for America.  Trump's America is a meaner, stupider and morally more corrupt America than we have seen since before the American civil war. He has given license to racism, misogyny, religious bigotry and intolerance of every kind. We need to end the madness of Trump.
