What Are You Doing For Others

This may be a negative stereotype, but based on the conservative Christian Republicans that followed Trump that I know and have seen, not to mention proof from history, it seems like those Trumplicans care only about themselves.

If something doesn’t affect them or benefit them, they want know part of it. They have no desire to help others. They can’t see the big picture of doing anything. Such paying people a living wage which would help the economy. Instead they believe the hype of trickle down economics and that providing tax cuts for the wealthy means that the profits will trickle down. That has never been the case. The poor just get poorer.

Many Republicans loudly proclaim they are anti-gay, until it comes out that their child is gay, or especially if they themselves are in the closet. Dick Cheney was one.

Many Republicans, like Nancy and Ronald Reagan, are against stem cell research (because it would encourage abortions), until Reagan developed Alzheimer’s and Nancy started pleas for stem cells in hopes it would help Ronnie. Before that she didn’t care if it would help others.

Rush Limbaugh was anti-drugs until he was arrested on drug charges.

Mitch McConnell doesn’t care about helping the people of this country, his own state, or even other members of the house or senate. As long as his wallet gets fatter, he is happy.

Many Republican governor led states open up before it’s safe to do so, which encourages large gatherings which become super spreader events.

Donald Trump was notorious about thinking only of himself and how to make himself richer. This has been his behavior his entire life, which allowed him to feel right at home in the Republican party. This could be why so many Republicans voted for him.

I HAD (key word here is ‘had’) a friend who had known for more than 50 years. We lost track of each other and then reconnected, and I’m sorry we did. It time to realize what she was hiding… her racist beliefs, her narcissistic behavior, her self-serving attitude. She didn’t seem to understand that everyone in her life was not going to “obey” her many demands… her sister, her niece, her husband, her son… and me. I had another friend who was the same way and who disowned me because I would not monitor her Facebook page and respond appropriately. Yes, they both voted for Trump and both are now former friends. I have a nephew who is a “proud Republican”, voted for Trump and stood up for Kyle Rittenhouse and other gun-toting military wanna-be’s.

Then we have;

To be fair, there was a long list of Donald Trumps “accomplishments” but I wouldn’t call them positive. Most of them were undoing the good things that Obama, Clinton and Bush did. And allowing thousands of people die from Covid 19 is hardly an accomplishment. Just like Ronald Reagan allowing hundreds of people die from AIDS.
