The world I’m writing about in these pages, a world that is too close to our reality and sometimes I’m afraid not enough away, is determined by the actions of Trump.  But Trump does not create it all by himself.  As in our world, he has help.  The Christian right wing, the Moral Majority to bring back a term from the past, help shape this world.  The Vice President, with his hatred of Gays plays a part.  And the spineless Republicans, that will do anything to stay in power and be able to pass their laws, even if they know it’s wrong.  Sell out their country, that’s fine, as long as they can bolster their power.  So Trump is the linchpin in which all these others rely on to push their agendas.  A world I’m afraid is too familar.
