Happy Holidays

My kids would ask me, what’s the difference between a Republican and a Democrat? I hated that question. Why? Simply; I did not and do not want to answer questions for my kids in any way, form or fashion that steers them away from making their own decisions on what each political party truly means to them.

It’s the same thing when I’m asked about Obama and Trump. I point out pros and cons of both, because I do not wish to cloud their judgments. I need them to make their own decisions about each for themselves.

But then, when I see this shining example, in their own words, it perfectly compares and contrasts their differences for me.

Fidel Castro recently passed at the age of 90. Here is the response from Obama;

“At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castrol altered the course of individual lives, families and of the Cuban nation.” President Obama.

And here is the response from Trump;

“Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.” President-elect Trump.

And that, my friends, says everything you need to know.

Happy Holidays!
