Donít ask me
to blindly fall in line
and follow along
when I know whatís going on
is wrong.
I wouldnít want you to
turn and look the other way.
Yet here we are
pointing fingers.
You act as if Iím the only one with doubts
when they are demonstrating in the streets.
Or do you pick and choose
and call everything
you donít want to see fake news?
Even the Party is majorly conflicted
over their loose cannonís points of views.
Itís not just me that has concerns.
And what concerns me most of all
is that he doesnít concern you.
(at least not that youíre willing to admit)
What you thought you were getting
you didnít get.
He was good in theory
but in practice not so much.
Mistakes happen all the time
not just when we admit them.
And I guess we canít blame you
for buying in to making America Great Again!
And there is no question
that Washington needs to change.
No one is saying you werenít trying to do
whatís right.
Whatís wrong is to pretend heís doing alright.
I wish youíd see the light.
I donít want you to compromise your conservative views
or renounce your political affiliation.
To the Office of the President
the man is a humiliation.
So if you are uncomfortable
discussing the situation,
may I suggest
you donít take the bait
and create a debate.

People are who they are.  As you said, you are not the only one who has concerns and who is frustrated, likewise there are many who still believe in the potus. I think the quote above speaks volumes for those of us who do not support the leader of our country and how he is going about making America great again. It's like there is no one flying the plane and we are free falling.

I'd be less worried if we all acted like we were dealing with the same guy. But too many of his supporters are like the 3 little monkeys: hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.
