This is no longer about Trump
I found the following words in an article on the blog of the HopeWorks Community. I was inspired to check out what else they had written on this topic, and I was moved to “reblog” the words that expressed some of my thinking better than I could myself.
The Real Question is about US
“This is no longer about the decency of Donald Trump. If there were lingering doubts the tape recently released should remove [them].
The real question is about us. What have we become? What are we yet to become?
The question is not about whether or not not we are going to be great, but at what point what happened to the idea of us being good?
Do we believe the moral integrity of our leaders is irrelevant to the leadership they provide as long as they give lip service to the policies we support. At what point is enough actually enough — or is it ever?
When do people understand that, “What about Hillary?” is neither explanation or justification for the disgrace that is Donald Trump? When?” . . . continue reading Source HERE
About the things I do not want
The words below are not my own either, but they so clearly express much of what I believe, they might as well be. I changed the order of the points around a bit, but the words are straight from HopeWorks.

Ten Things I Do Not Want in My President
- I do not want a president who enjoys calling other people names — I don’t want a president who is into shaming other people.
- I don’t want a president who thinks woman are cattle, people of color are somehow less worthy and less human, and poor people are lazy.
- I don’t want a president without any humility, especially one who thinks humility is a character flaw.
- I don’t want a president who thinks he knows all he needs to know and had neither the drive or discipline to learn more.
- I don’t want a president whose only conversation is some version of how great he is.
- I don’t want a president who has never done anything else other than try to get as rich as he can get and brag about it as loudly and frequently as he can.
- I don’t want a person running for president who isn’t at least a little scared and overwhelmed about winning.
- I don’t want a president whose skin is so thin he is an easy mark for other people. The person leading the United States cannot be easily provoked.
- I don’t want a president who does not value honor more than he does attention and personal gain.
- I don’t want a president who would tell this country that hatred and bigotry and racism are okay and make common sense.
