I loved reading ETTD. Consider the context in light of what I believe.
I’m a Baby Boomer. I believe that young people are right. Put our tax dollars to work. Enforce prison reform. Create a just immigration system. Tell the military to reduce its ranks and modernize its approach. Tax the rich at an increasing percent level for each additional $100,000 they make, support schools, forgive student debt, make public college education free again, make racism illegal, separate church and state, invest in clean energy jobs, fix our crumbling infrastructure, support refugees, protect social security, end Citizens United, support a free press, eliminate the electoral college, resurrect the Equal Rights Amendment, enforce reproductive rights, increase the minimum wage substantially, support voting rights, hold Big Pharma and Wall Street accountable for their practices and, by all means, provide Medicare for All.
I love Rick Wilson. He pulls no punches, and he's hilarious, but also serious about the dire situation our country is in. He understands and explains how we got from conservative intellectuals like William Buckley to the divisive, spineless, amoral, know nothing, sell-outs and traitors who control the Republican Party today.
Donald Trump touched a company and made profit. He also touched our tax code and saved taxpayers money. Trump touched NOKO and denuclearized it. Obama touched healthcare and made it worse. Obama touched Iran and bribed them. Biden touched a jet and killed 133 people. He also voted for higher premiums. More like everything the establishment touches dies.
What a great book by Rick Wilson about the stain on America that is Donald Trump. Rick explains how this idiot of a man became the leader of the free world and how if we give up the fight, our nation, our freedom and our country will be lost forever. I hope that he and many others are willing, as JFK said in his Inaugural speech “Let every nation know, whether is wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of liberty”. Rick Wilson has shown our great nation the way. All we need to do is find the courage to do what we must, to gain back the America that most of us know and love.
Great Book , especially coming from a GOP Conservative . Honest assessment both for the GOP and the Democrats. Remember what Trump previously said, Lie enough and people will believe it. The American voter and non voter have become this Country’s worst nightmare
Trump is a joke! I’m a republican and I would take Obama or Bill Clinton over this moron any day. He’s lied more than all the other presidents put together. Maybe he taught that at fraudulent Trump University. Lol All the other countries are laughing at this nut. 🤦🏻♂️

Have looked forward to this and it doesn’t disappoint. The Trump apologists in these reviews, and Republicans generally, are seriously deluded if they think any of this is sustainable. There is no lasting majority for Trumpism, and the long-term damage to the Republican Party will be devastating. He’s been an accelerant for stoking rage among the working class and racists, and history will condemn those who have been complicit.
How can you say that when he has record low unemployment, especially of blacks, latinos, and the country as a whole. “He is unstable to run the country” yet he has the best economy in decades..... and only two years in. 6 more years, our kids are in good hands!
Donald Trump is like the monster Grendel in Beowulf. He was spawned and thrust into the national spotlight by the Republican political machine. Its first victims were the Republican Party, and the Conservative movement.
Rick Wilson is a powerful voice of reason within that Republican political machine. He is part of the right conservatives that are trying to put the evil genie back in the bottle.
This book is a must read for true conservatives and true democrats alike. It is a must read for all decent Americans. The time has come for all good men and women to unite and end this terrifying chapter of American politics.
If you follow any of Rick Wilson’s work, you will know that he spares no fool. I am so excited to read this book and have been looking forward to it.
Sad, funny and true
Just wish his name wasn’t in the title!
