Mind and Destiny

“I make no pretension to patriotism. So long as my voice can be heard ... I will hold up America to the lightning scorn of moral indignation. In doing this, I shall feel myself discharging the duty of a true patriot; for he is a lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins. It is righteousness that exalteth a nation while sin is a reproach to any people.”- Frederick Douglass

Trump Is Unacceptable

The Oneonta Daily Star published the following letter to the editor that Joseph C. Stillman submitted.
“Donald Trump isn’t an honest person.  He’s not interested in the truth and likes to manufacture fictitious rumors about his rivals.
“He isn’t an individual who has ever been a senator, U.S. congressman, governor, state senator, attorney general, mayor, school board member or city councilman.  He’s never done anything for anyone other than himself.
“He’s does not work well with people to seek consensus to serious problems.  He isn’t a person who respects differences of opinion or people who disagree with him
“He isn’t a person who will release his tax returns, because he doesn’t pay any taxes and he knows this doesn’t make him look very good.  He isn’t disclosing his taxes because he doesn’t give money to charity as he claims and this would prove he lied about all the great causes he wants us to believe he has funded.  He isn’t releasing his taxes because when you declare bankruptcy six times and lose a billion dollars, it doesn’t make you look like the great businessman he claims to be.
“Donald Trump isn’t a man who respects women.  He mocks their appearance, calls them names, boasts that he has had numerous affairs and uses them as props to make him look good.
“He isn’t a substantive person.  He discriminates against minorities, is a racist and tried to delegitimize our president by saying he wasn’t born in this country and then admits he was after five years, all the while using that to draw attention to himself.
“Donald Trump is all show and not a legitimate candidate.  He has no experience that qualifies him to be the leader of a Boy Scout troop much less the free world or the distinguished office of the president of the United States.”
