Hey Mainers, did you clap loudly enough while watching President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address in January? No? Then Trump says you are treasonous and Un-American. You say you didn’t even take the time to watch his speech? That may be an even worse offense.

All of us need to wake up to the fact that Trump has a tyrannical mindset and is becoming more and more of an actual tyrant. He truly wants to be the Supreme Leader of the United States.

We need to awake and arise. Everyone who is eligible should register to vote and then vote in all elections. We need to hold all elected officials accountable for their response, or lack of response to Trump’s despotic words and deeds. This holds especially true for Republican elected officials.

We need to resist and defy Trump’s efforts to undo our democracy.
