Greed, Power, and Trump

In this time of crisis, when so many people are slipping into poverty and health-imperiling deprivation, Trump and his allies have remained intent on tightening access to food stamps and have diverted much in the way of economic relief to the rich, the super rich, and political allies. Because of voter suppression and because the popular vote will not be decisive in the November election, Trump needs only to fool some of the people some of the time to further degrade our democracy and impose on us longer and more painfully his reign of mean-spiritedness, greed, resentment, misery, and lies.
