I’ve been reading your responses and I find them….. unpalatable. This one, I had to respond to.

Larry, I find it shocking that I have to teach you haw inappropriate it is to use the word rape, which is a term used to describe a very violent and heinous act, indiscriminately when speaking about other issues. To do so is to belittle the fact that 1 out of every 4 women (and men, to a lesser degree) will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime. Yes, I am one of those women. And it happened more than once, which is also quite common.

Furthermore, increases in taxes have NOT destroyed America. You need to do some serious homework, buddy. Stagnant wages have. Wages have been stagnant for about 30 years. The minimum wage hasn’t even kept up with the cost of living. You sound reasonably intelligent, I am certain you can figure that out.

Additionally, another major factor in the destruction of America has been Wallstreet. High gambling, no punishment. The cause of the 2008 Great Recession largely falls at the feet of the big banks, yet very few of those responsible have had to account. Oh, and about 95% of the wealth gained since 2008 has gone to the top 1% of the income earners in the country. THAT is what is wrong with our country. Tax breaks for the rich. NOT tax increases.

No one is raping you, buddy. You have no idea what you’re talking about. Get your head out of the sand and look around. Donald Trump is not going to save you, or America. He is a charlatan. A whole lot of what he has said is a lie. Go on, factcheck.org lists a whole lot of his lies, and what the truth is, if you care to educate yourself.

Good luck to you. You have a lot to learn.
