    Bette Midler has sumed up The Republican Fascist Bigot Presidential Nominee ,The Republican’s (FRANKINSTIEN)MONSTER Donald Trump!

    The rhetoric of Trump and the rest of the GOP today, however, proves just how timeless and Dangerous Adolph Hitler’s Book Mien Kemph was and seems to be Trump’s guideline and as Heller’s magnum opus truly is very very truthful. The sadism of torture becomes justice, the brutality of carpet bombing becomes patriotism, Trump’s capitalist plunder becomes philanthropy to the workers, his narcissistic arrogance becomes a virtue, his racist and misogynist slanders become the truth that only he is willing to tell over the din of political correctness.

    The list of deceptions in the bizarro world Trump and his Republican brethren inhabit goes on and on, and, tragically, far too many American voters are duped by this cynical populist tactic that, as Heller’s writing shows, is as old as politics itself. Leave it to such a brilliant personality as Bette Midler to unearth the perfect description of these Republican lies, and to such a brilliant author as Heller to pen them in the first place. Fascist Trump now being Endorsed and Financially Supported By The Ku Klux Klan !

    Liberal means generous. Democrats care more about the environment. If I want anything changed in the belief statements, I can go to the convention and they are Liberal enough to listen to me. In my younger days, I would go back and forth to the Republican Party for 4 years at a time. I ended up liking the Democrats better. They accept me even when I disagree with a few of their ideas. The Republicans were more tight about their things (Like loving Energy Solutions so much that it doesn’t matter if we all get poisoned—as long as their friends are getting paid). Both parties could use a serious makeover.

    I believe in spreading knowledge and truth in the world. Not turning my back on it.

    I am a Mormon because I follow the Lord’s greatest commandment, to love. I am a liberal because of the same reason; I listen when love is preached. I cannot in good conscience vote against these core beliefs, and for this I am a liberal.

    I believe that social and economic justice are integral to the creation of Zion in the latter days.

    When I read the scriptures, I feel that they best align with my liberal beliefs, without the need of significant mental gymnastics.

    Because that is the way of Christ, and these days the only things conservatives are conserving is greed and intolerance.

    My Lord and Savior taught love. All deserve his love, we should not deny those who are in need. Any need. And the source of that help should not be in question. Jesus did not deny his blessings to the poor or hungry because of their circumstances. He did not blame them for their poverty or illness. My testimony of my savior didn’t come with a judgement plan. Just a knowledge of HIM and how much he loves me. Love thy neighbor is not just for a select few, it’s for every one no matter who they are. For me, being a Liberal Mormon is more on the path of being a real Christian.

    If you believe that the Lord has blessed you and yours, and if you believe that these blessings are given to you freely with nothing held back simply because of the great love our Savior has for you, how can you NOT share with others what has been freely given to you. All we are asked to do is follow our Savior’s example…..and His commandment “Love One Another”
