Michael, I am so tired of people who insist on comparing real human beings to the psychological wreck who is the always dangerous Donald Trump. Trump is an existential threat to democracy, our health, and the economy. His mind exists in an alt-right conspiracy universe. If you had one iota of common sense you would support anyone who isn't Trump. Unless, of course, you are part of his propaganda machine.

Without campaign finance reform, no politician can be immune the political power we have ceded to the ultra wealthy and big business. As a combat veteran who just resigned his job over a matter of principle, I am not so naive as to equate stupidity with courage. That's a truth that really matters.

Our duty as Americans is to exercise, not to waste, our precious vote. Trump has had the opportunity to kill many thousands of Americans because too many voters made perfect the enemy of the good in 2016.

I’m a US Army veteran of the Vietnam War, have a wonderful wife and family, am a working software engineer, and a committed citizen.
