The “Dark Core” of the U.S.

As many of you know I try very hard to stay away from politics, but there comes a time when I just can't be quiet anymore … and today is one of those times.

Dark core” conjures up an image for me of ugliness … a place where there is no sunlight … and where the only things you can rely on are hatred, lies and destruction.

In other words it is exactly how a huge portion of our country is behaving as I write this.

They are the underbelly of America, a core that Trump has masterfully played to and who now follow him blindly. They are the “pure” whites who are scared to death of the “browning of America” and will do anything to stave it off. The ones who declare that this is their country and they are not about to share it with anyone who has even a tinge of color, and the main things fueling them are RACISM and BIGOTRY.

If we want to save our Democracy we need to fight this on every front and, unbelievably it includes, with few exceptions, the present House and Senate Republicans who don't care about anything but covering their own sorry butts ! We deserve much better and it's time we start fighting for it.

We're way past time addressing this issue, so all the more reason we need to finally do so now.
