If we take people as they are, we make them worse.  If we treat them as if they were what they ought to be, we help them to become what they are capable of becoming.
    —    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
[In 2016, although we had our strong opinions (and a three million majority voted against him), we weren’t positive what candidate Trump would be like as President.  Four years later, we now KNOW what he has been like and will continue to be:  He is a tragically divisive and incompetent President who has failed the country.
What have you got to lose?”   —    Candidate Donald Trump.
With over 180,000 dead from COVID-19, we now have 180,000-plus families who can answer his question.  If YOU take him as he is in 2020, he will get worse and America will continue its current decline.  If you vote #DonTheCon out of Office, you will help him become what he ought to be:  unemployed.  And, if the State of New York has anything to say about it, he may become what he IS capable of becoming:  a convicted felon.    —    KMAB]

God may be subtle, but malicious He is not.
    —    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
