Demographic Breakdown of 2016 Presidential Election

Below is an image created by Pew Research showing how we voted in the 2016 presidential election by certain demographics. What is surprising to me is it was  voters over 50 that supported Trump the strongest as a percentage of those voting in their respective age group. I congratulate black women for 98% of them voted against Trump.

By age group, Trump's strongest support came from those over 65.  This surprises me.

This lady has an excellent idea,

Hi All: By now most of you have probably heard about Trump's over 2 hour private meeting with Putin and his treasonous press conference afterward. I follow this woman Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin on FB and she recommended that now was the time to call everyone on the House Judiciary Committee (where impeachment proceedings begin) and ask them to begin impeachment proceedings. It may seem overly dramatic but at some point we have to start an outcry big enough that republicans do something. I've called all the republicans and I'm now starting on the Dems. Feel free to join in if you are outraged. If you just want to call the committee itself the number is 202.225.3951

Here are members and phone numbers. Every number begins with 202-225. I am only including the last four digits here.

Trump and Hitler

Germany was punished so severely after World War 1 that Germans looked at Hitler's movement as providing its’ population hope that things will improve. Hitler used Jews as a scapegoat for Germany’s problems.

Trump’s scapegoats are minorities and Democrats. From 1968 until 2008 I voted for the Republican candidate for President. During that same period my go to party,was the Republicans. I did vote for a Democratic candidate if one stood out in my mind as a better choice.

The America we knew prior to Trump has been gone for some period of time. The change is not for the better whether you are black, brown, yellow, or white. I hope and believe Trump will be gone in 7 months or less but the damage caused will linger for decades. Trump was used by Putin just as any puppet is used by its owner.

America will never be the influential country it once was. Our European allies have recovered from World war II and are looking for new leadership for the West. We are no longer the leader of the “western pact”. The temporary winner is Putin. The long term winner will be China.

Hopefully minorities in our country will also benefit long term.  The focus for the minorities must be on education.

Our allies recognize America’s flaws. Hitler rose to power.because he used Jews as a scapegoat. Trump used the same tactic except instead of using Jews, Trump is using minorities and the Democrats because many are still hoping for the good old days to return. It will not happen. Others cannot rely on us. Our word is not our bond. Citizens United and gerrymandering must be reversed. Term limits for both houses of Congress is something to think about. If we had term limits corporations and the very wealthy would be less inclined to throw money at our politicians because the timeframe of when their financial investment in our politicians would be shortened.

Our present system of governing is no longer working for all the people of this great nation. It is working for Wall Street, the mega rich and the politicians who are willing to sell their vote to live a cushy life in Washington and our state capitals.

It is time we accept this reality and take action. If we fail to take action America will fail. ultimately collapsing from greed. Historians claim World War II was partially caused by how western allies treated Germany after World War I

Fixing America's Racial Problems

Our nation has improved in handling and accepting different races. However race still does matter as to how someone is treated by society. Much of the discourse over race has to do with results, or lack of results, relating to justice and equality.

Since the 1960's this country dedicated a lot of resources to eradicate racism. Progress can be acknowledged, but we have not eliminated racism. This is today's frustration on the part of both white and black citizens.

Whites, as a group, feel enough is enough. We have thrown resources at fixing the problem but it still lingers. Blacks still get up every morning living in inferior neighborhoods and sending their children to inferior schools and they want change.

Now that the world has recovered from World War II its harder for us as a nation to remain “King” of the world. We see our kingdom slipping in stature and many whites are thinking: "enough is enough for we poured billions of dollars into trying to lift blacks out of poverty and despair and they squandered the resources." We effectively played Pontius Pilate washing away our guilt.
