A False god

For Mr.Trump, it is all in the marketing. It is the declarations that make it, whatever it is, so. If he says that he is the greatest negotiator, do not investigate his failures. If he says he is well endowed, do not peek under the covers. If he says the Bible is his favorite book, do not query him on chapter and verse. 

He is his own religion. The unshakable, unalterable, undeniable belief vested in a higher being, Donald Trump. For those who profess to be guided by the teachings of Christ, to champion Mr.Trump is to abdicate their principles in support of a false idol.

This god brings promises of power as the ultimate salvation. And the land he envisions is as far from the promised land as dark is from light.

I am very surprised that you did not point out (six times) that Trump used a blatantly anti-Semitic symbol as part of his campaign. He put a picture of Clinton into a six pointed Jewish star of David and imposed it on top of a pile of money. This is a cliched stereotype of Jews as being money grubbers. Three months ago Trump told the Jewish Republican Organization that he was a good negotiator "like YOU people are." And, as we can see, the anti-Semites and Jew-haters have crawled out of their rat holes in pursuit of the Pied Piper of Trump Tower.

I remain worried about the election. Clinton is a weak candidate with many negatives about her. The country has enough Republicans who will vote for whomever their nominee is along with a gang of others who want to vote for Trump to assuage their anger. If Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes it will be only a matter of time before he turns half of the world into ash.
