I Used To Think I Was Normal

I used to think I was just a normal person, 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 retired, which makes me useless.

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 an 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.

Recently, a sick old woman running for President called me me and my friends a basket of
deplorables.

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 happened to me so quickly!

It’s especially odd that it’s all just taken place over since Obama took office.

Hopefully things will improve today, when Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President Of The United States.

It will be a tough fight though, because Obama and his legions of progressives will fight Trumps efforts to Make America Great Again, tooth and nail.
