The final debate.

After all the things that man has said, after all the times he’s been in-your-face dishonest, denying having said things he’s just been reminded are on video or tape of him saying, projecting onto all his opponents along the way anything that he himself is guilty of. Even after he encouraged his followers to assassinate, well, it wasn’t clear if it was Hillary or judges she appoints or both.

When Chris Wallace invoked the great power of American history being our peaceful transitions of power, that that has always been so, and asked the candidates if they would accept the results of the election.

He answered angrily, I’m not going to tell you.

I thought I had heard everything I might ever hear out of that man but in that moment my jaw hit the floor, stunned, and I turned to Richard: Did you HEAR that?!

When Wallace pressed him again, he snarled, I’m going to keep you in suspense.

That right there was a flat-out no. No he didn’t want to and no he won’t. Anything that wasn’t an immediate, stunned, who-do-you-think-I-am Of course I would! shows exactly what he thinks of the American people if they don’t give him everything he covets, all the power, all the prestige, all the glory that he so believes belong to him and him alone.

And in that moment he treated us all, every single American, the whole world, like he treats–all his accusers aside, we have heard it with our own ears from his own mouth–women.

I am still in shock that he has gotten this far! His childish behavior is shameful!

I can’t even come up with a coherent, polite description of how I feel about this latest tantrum combined with all of the others. It helps to know there are others who feel the same.

He is the reason I no longer consider myself a Republican.

And then yesterday he gave a press conference and reinforced exactly what I (and perhaps you and many others) thought when we heard that Wednesday night. Yesterday he said “I will absolutely accept the outcome . . . . . . . if I win”.

And when I read online that he is planning on repealing Roe vs Wade – well – I’m just not sure what to say. Whether the public agrees with abortion or not, I think/hope we can all agree that going back to the Dark Ages is not going to make America great.

This is a very confusing and frightening time in politics – I’m afraid there will trouble no matter who wins.

I say a prayer for America every night, the least I can do for our neighbours to the south.
