It’s a bad habit, but I reach for my phone as soon as I awake to check email.
I was surprised to get an invitation to a Trump-Pence fundraiser. See above.
I was surprised because the above invitation came from an acquaintance who is college-educated, very articulate, etc. And, he does a lot of work for the GOP. I was tempted to write back something snarky. I was tempted to throw stones. I was tempted to ignore the email with stony silence.
But, I realized that my friend has the right to express free speech. He has the right to express why he is anti-Obama, which he did in an accompanying letter.
And, I realized that I too have the right to free speech. So, I wrote back a very honest but polite email, which essentially said: I will never vote for Trump.
On another note, it cannot be good for the GOP that an email for an event on August 6 went out on August 5. Even worse, the NY Times’ current forecast has the odds of a Trump win at 20%.
Vote in November!
