Where's The Leadership?

To join the military, you must be mentally and physically fit. To be Commander in Chief, it's OK if you're batshit crazy.

Understand This

Something we all need to understand: There is no race or ethnicity superior to any other, no skin color, no religion, and even, I suppose, no political orientation. We are all on this planet together, not necessarily by choice, but it is up to all of us to work to find a common ground of understanding and to make our lives on this planet as comfortable and liveable as possible while we are here. You don't have to like me, and I may not like you, but it is up to all of us to protect one another and make our lives on this Earth as painless and beneficial to all of us as possible. 
Threatening thermonuclear war, or race baiting, or threatening the invasion of a South American country does not qualify as being pro humanity, and certainly disqualifies for being a World leader.

Who will survive longer...

Before Trump began his run for the presidency, I always thought that there were some of us more conservative, and some of us more liberal, but I never thought of any of us as bat-shit crazy, except, perhaps, for the NRA and KKK. Now I realize that there is a base of about 35% of us who are completely bonkers, and are still allowed to vote, and Trump is their leader. That does not promise much of a future, for any of us.
The worry now: Who will survive longer, Trump, or the USA?
