As an American, I am ashamed of how some Texas politicians and people are ridiculing and talking about fighting the presidency and our country. The ads from politicians placating the far right fringe to win votes is a disgrace to all that I have learned about my country.
My uncle died defending this country in World War II. He died fighting against Hitler and to see the far right put that mustache on our president is extremely offensive to me and should be to all veterans and those of the “Greatest Generation.”
We can disagree with our leaders and country, but we do not mock or fight them. That is not patriotic, that is subversive. By mocking our president, you are mocking all those that have held that office from Washington to the conservative favorites Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. I did not agree with either Reagan or Bush’s policies, but I respected them as the leaders of my country, I am an American!
Shame on all the people and politicians that partake in this unpatriotic and un-American way! Intelligent debate and compromise made this country great not idiotic slurs and war against the government.
