Thomas Jefferson: Unity!

Thomas Jefferson

Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us.

— Former Defense Secretary James Mattis

My fellow Americans –

That is the most ridiculous statement I’ve ever read about politics. The Democratic party platform, as I understand it, is:

  1. If you’re not white, you can’t make it in America because of racism.
  2. If you are white, you can’t make it because of One Percenters and Wall Street fat cats.
  3. If you’re a woman, you can’t make it because of sexism and misogyny.
  4. Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

They’ve got race wars, class wars, culture wars, gender wars, all going on at the same time. It’s everybody against everybody.

Unite us, indeed!

Thomas Jefferson
