Last night's debate was indicative of many things. We got a good glimpse of what Hillary Clinton would be like as president, and we got an even better look at how Donald Trump blames everyone and everything other than himself for his failures.

Trump clearly doesn't understand the difference between intentionally leaking classified information to the press, and improperly using email by running it through a server. The former involves the willful disclosure of information and transmission to someone who was not authorized to receive it, whereas the latter does not.

Trump clearly doesn't understand how abortions work. Late term abortions where a mother's life is not in danger is illegal across the country, but Trump clearly doesn't understand the difference between abortions performed at different stages of gestation. He's not a "details" guy... just a bloviating idiot.

Beyond that, Trump doesn't have a clue about anything related to the Supreme Court, whether it's the Heller decision, Roe v. Wade, or any other legal issue. He doesn't understand what the Heller decision was or what it meant. He doesn't understand the differences between Hillary's position and the Heller decision. He doesn't understand how Roe v. Wade would be overturned or what that would mean, or how overturning it would play out in the states, much less what impact overturning Roe would result in to the country.

On the global stage, Trump is behind the curve. Trump has no understanding of nuclear weapons, nuclear arms, international relations, what is happening in Mosul (his rant on that was comedically stupid). Trump clearly does not understand what impact Russian espionage has had on US elections, nor does he care. Trump's celebration of Vladimir Putin, is as vile and sick as it is a disturbing harbinger of what kind of a tin-pot dictator he would conduct himself as.

On the subject of good government, Trump clearly doesn't give a fvck about our democracy. Like everything else, he claims that "the system is rigged" just because he's losing. Everyone's out to get him, and he's the world's biggest victim. (Sounds like Joseph Stalin, who said the same thing all the time.) He doesn't give a sh!t about the structured and peaceful transfer of power, which is *the foundation* of our democracy's continued functioning.

More or less, we're at a point where it is impossible to not acknowledge that Trump is a threat to America. He is the stupidest, most reckless and dangerous candidate ever to run for that office. He is easily the most psychologically unbalanced man *ever* to be appointed by *any* party (including Nixon) in our country's history. He would invariably harm America to the point where it could not be fixed, if not catalyze the world's overall destabilization, and in particular, create the conditions for nuclear arms races and regional war in South Asia and the Middle East.

Support for Trump at this point is indicative of willful denial of reality, or generalized apathy for everyone and everything that matters in this country and in this world. To vote for him is to welcome vacuousness and unbalanced rage into the White House, and though I usually disparage this kind of language, voting for him is akin to outright betrayal of our democratic process.

As best I can tell, the beginning and end of *ALL* support for Donald Trump exists in lamentations of white--evangelical--protestant's losing their idiotic culture war and their formerly held vice grip on American morality. Conservatives made their culture war about abortion and gay rights, and they uniformly lost on both in the only court's that matter: courts of law, and courts of public opinion. Here and now, we are witnessing what can only be described as visceral rage at that loss manifest in Donald Trump's candidacy.

These people who want religious opt-outs from federal law so that they can discriminate against gay people, keep women pregnant and in kitchens, and keep non-whites from even going to the polls are selfishly prioritizing their ideological fetishes (i.e. delusions of "religious liberty," delusions of turning back the clock on gay rights, and the like) over and above what is best for the country in present and future.

So, let me be clear. If you prioritize opposition to gay marriage, or some idiotic fantasy that religious liberty entitled you to engage in discriminatory acts against people and groups you don't like, or any of the other delusional social flash point issues that Conservatives have made a cornerstone of their lost culture war, then you are a bad person and you are what is wrong with America. You should take a lasting look in the mirror and ask yourself what kind of a world you want your children to inherit, and get your head out of your @ss as to the national and global consequences that a Trump presidency would have.

Wake up and smell the coffee. Trump is a disgusting, vile piece of filth. Do not lower yourselves to being associated with that.

Whether you like Hilary or not, I don't even care. People can ramble on about the multivariate (and baseless) conspiracy theories surrounding the Clinton campaign to whatever extent they like... they're still grasping at straws. Benghazi, the emails, the Clinton Foundation, etc. all don't even pass the sniff test, but there are a lot of people who are CONVINCED that despite all the evidence that everything that everything Trump has said is horsesh!t, that there is some kind of conspiracy out there led by the Clintons. Before you know it, he'll be calling them lizard people. This is the level of vacuousness that Trump's campaign has sunk to.

Clinton showed a lot of moderation early int he debate, makes me think she could work with republicans. She would be better than Trump, but it does not excuse that she is incredibly corrupt.

We need to enact safe spaces to protect gays and women against the microaggressions of those mean, scary Christians.
