    Donald Trump: The Most Dangerous Man in the History of the United States and What We Can Do About It.

    Donald Trump: The Most Dangerous Man in the History of the United States and What We Can Do About It.

    How can we create a better world for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren,  if we make poor choices in the person who is to lead us?

    Donald J. Trump is the biggest threat to democracy in the history of the United States.  He is now leading Joe Biden in the polls and if he ends up being re-elected, the United States may never be the same again.

    In this episode, Steve breaks down the reasons why, with the "Big Lie," 4 criminal indictments and 91 charges, authoritarian wanna be Dictator Donald Trump is not a politician, but a dangerous cult leader causing great harm to America, most likely irreparable harm if he succeeds at becoming president again.

    But the solution to this problem is NOT to try and talk to or convince Trump worshipers that he is a dangerous man. That is a plan to fail, and it's far too late for that.  But there are other steps that we can take to ensure that our sacred democracy remains in tact.  But is it too late?
