To all you Trump voters who think you just voted for the tax cut or the Supreme Court nominations or the death of trade deals or the demise of Obamacare, not so fast. Your vote was a “package deal.” You don’t get to tease out the things you liked about Trump’s messages.

You have co-signed all the hate-filled messages as if you said them yourself. You have condoned all the behaviors of his that you pretended didn’t count. You voted for an America that’s hate-filled, isolationist and driven by narrow self-interest. You voted for dodging taxes, cheating business partners, sexual predatory behaviors and lack of accountability. You voted against clean air, clean water and the quality of life of your children and grandchildren by leaving them a planet in peril.

But you just wanted change? Votes have consequences and should be based on facts, not emotions.

Now we all lose.

    Really, since he hasn’t even done A SINGLE THING since he’s not even in the office. Or that laws require all both Presidential and congressional action. How is that you know WE WILL HAVE NO CLEAN AIR, I voted for TAX DODGING (how is that anyone actually tax dodges? You do know Obummer weaponized the IRS right) or any other consequence. This is a stupid letter at every level.

      Wow man, grammar. Consider learning it some day. I know this was an angry rant, but you have questions and statements mashed together until they make no sense at all.

      With writing like this, you have no right to call anyone else stupid.

        Ignorance is what put us in this mess.

    Guilty white liberals already voted to fundamentally change America the past 8 years. The choice was more of the same or going back to making America safer, united, stronger and great again for all Americans. I chose the latter and am definitely not an emotional voter.

      Anyone who can say with a straight face that this election has made America safer and more united is being willfully blind, to put it mildly.

    Guess with that logic it makes a Hillary voter responsible for four American deaths in Benghazi and then lying about it?

    Time to go to your “safe space” Mary Ann.
