Donald Trump’s Government Shutdown. now in its 34th day, is creating psychological torture on millions of Americans, and endangering public health and national security.
It is a criminal act, unsurpassed by any President in American history, a grab for absolute power by a tyrant who wishes to destroy our Constitution and system of checks and balances.
It should lead to immediate removal from office, not even wait until an impeachment trial, as it is endangering
a great economic depression;
a danger of nuclear war;
a public health and safety crisis regarding our food and drug supply;
the likelihood of a massive terrorist incident as horrible as September 11;
the danger of a disaster in air traffic;
the eviction from homes and apartments of millions of Americans, making them homeless; causing massive hunger and starvation;
the undermining of the health of the elderly, the disabled, the poor, and those with serious diseases;
the worsening of morale of such crucial government agencies as the Secret Service, Immigration and Custom Enforcement, Transportation Security Administration, the Coast Guard, and innumerable other agencies;
the likelihood that many dedicated federal government agencies will see many of their work force permanently leave government service, creating a massive shortage of qualified people to take care of government services for 325 million Americans;
and causing America to become the laughing stock of the world, as the nation goes from one crisis to another every day, and every area of government policy getting worse by the days and weeks and months.
We have had two years now of crisis and anarchy, and it is just fortunate that there has been no major foreign policy crisis, but one can sense it is coming, and we have an incompetent, demented, unstable, ill tempered collaborator with the major enemy of the United States, Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation, who wishes our nation ill!
