I used to think I was just a regular guy, but…

I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.

I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.

I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.

I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.

I am older than 70 and retired, which makes me a useless old man.

I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.

I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loans (it’s called work) and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever.

I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.

Please help me come to terms with the new me… because I'm just not sure who I am anymore! I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking! I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!

Funny…it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years! As if all this wasn’t enough to deal with.......I'm now afraid to go into either restroom!

It's time for moral, hard working,freedom loving Americans to roll back the liberal lunacy running wild. If the revolution doesn't start soon, we will lose this once great nation to the lunatic fringe.

Check, check, and check. I am also a deplorable and irredeemable who proudly served, earned a college degree (that I paid for), worked 42 years in the areas of finance and accounting, married 47 years (up to now)with two grown children who are successful in their own right, and I too am not beholding to anyone. Trump is not my hero by far. It just so happens his name is by the box I will check on November 8th for conservative values, secure borders, respect for law and order, immigration and welfare reform, a reasonable health care system (we will know what is in it before we pass it), revitalization of inner cities, strengthened military, and a common sense education system.
