Folly, Vice, and Madness
"Donald Trump is insane.
He's a raving madman. A very, very dangerous madman, who's surrounded himself with toadies and fops and fascists and evil lieutenants and is cheered by the brainless mob like some goddamned megalomaniac from an Ian Fleming novel.He demonstrates this every single day and you have only to look at his own words up above to see it.
And yet, right now, right here, on this blog, in my social media timelines, liberals will shortly arrive and admonish me to "just ignore him."
Just ignore him.
That’s what they'll say. Just ignore him.
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
Ignoring madness is how you wake up one morning in a country gone utterly mad.
Ignoring madness is how we all ended up here. Now. In this place. Living under this insanity.
Trump's insanity, his duplicity, his dangerous disingenuous bullpoop, must be called out every single time.
Every. Single. Time.
Trump and his supporters must be held to account.
If congress wouldn't do it, then congress too must be held to account.
Because, sooner or later, Citizens, one way or the other, we're all going to be held to account for this madness.
'But what is liberty without wisdom, and without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils; for it is folly, vice, and madness, without tuition or restraint.'
