Almost half of my family and many of my good friends can’t stand Donald Trump. Others are so consumed with a deep-seeded hate that their ability to see reality is obscured.

For the past three years, Trump has been subjected to a non-stop, 24 hour/day smear campaign. He has been called: traitor, racist, fascist, homophobic, misogynistic, scumbag, sleazy, warmonger, worst president ever, and often accused of being mentally unstable. Some have called him a Nazi, and compared him to Hitler. A significant number of people don’t like his tone, others don’t like his character. The negative publicity includes the deliberate withholding and outright distortion of news that would favor Trump ... so it’s no wonder that many hate him.

The recent Impeachment vote by the House of Representatives was nothing more than a well-orchestrated attempt to smear President Trump. Democrats knew from the beginning that there was no evidence of a High Crime or Misdemeanor. They invented non-criminal charges in an unfair rush to impeach.

The Trump haters ignore this disgraceful congressional abuse of power because their hate overcomes what is an obvious attempt to smear.

Hate has succeeded in blinding many people from what could be the greatest political scandal in the history of our country. The Mueller investigation, coupled with the Inspector General’s investigation, clearly show that Donald Trump has been a victim of a deep-state, secret attempt to overthrow his presidency. If it can happen to Trump, it can happen to anyone.

The haters are blind to Trump’s positive impact on economic prosperity that has resulted in more jobs available than workers to fill them; the haters are blind to the threat of Socialism that has infected the Democratic Party; and, worst of all, the haters are blind to the many domestic threats that are right before their eyes: Threats to the Right of Due Process, the Right of Free Speech, and the Right to Bear Arms; Threats to pack the Supreme Court and Abolish the Electoral College; Support for Open Borders and Sanctuary Cities; Promises of full benefits and rights for “Illegal “Immigrants”; and Monstrous tax and spend proposals that would destroy the “American Dream.”

The haters are so focused on defeating Trump, that they are blind to the freedom-destroying strategies that are the bait-and-switch deceptions of Socialism. Corrupt politicians offer voters the delicious temptation of wonderful benefits that others will pay for. These politicians love the effectiveness of hate. Especially when the haters ignore the fact that Trump is term-limited. They need to wake up and realize that Socialism has no term limits!

This 2020 Presidential election will determine the future of our free Republic. It is truly a choice between Freedom, and Government-dictated Socialism.

Thank you sir, excellent comment, the haters waste so much time & energy, when they could focus all of that on the problems in our country.

Bravo, Mr. Holland. So very, very true!

It's a shame Trump couldn't have lured Biden into visiting Saudi Arabia. Then the Donald could call Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and ask for a 'small favor'. After Biden vanishes without a trace, Trump and the Republicans could face the media and claim no crime was committed, since the Crown Prince is an absolute monarch and can murder anyone with impunity just like he did journalist Jamal Khashoggi. MAGA!!

Come on now Doc, maybe the Donald could contact the Clintons and arrange a very convenient suicide for his adversary. Seems to have worked out very well for them over the past 20 years.

Either way it would be a timely resolution to the inconvenient obstacle of a political opponent facing one in a tense election year. No more bizarre than what really happened. And no more surreal than seeing Republican senators claim with a straight face that no ethical, moral, or statutory boundary had been crossed.

C'mon, you know that nobody in the US government is going to blink an eye about the Kashoggi murder. After all, it's a well known FACT that the Saudi's assisted the 9/11 terrorists, yet the politicians in DC did nothing to Saudi Arabia. It's all about oil and money. Saudi Arabians could come here and take a massive dump on the grounds of the National Cemetery and the US politicians wouldn't do a thing about it.

Bravo, Mr. Holland! Well stated.

Here is the pot talking about the kettle. I would tell the writer to look in the mirror to see hate, but he is so blind himself, he could not see that he is what he condemns.
