1) Hey, @realDonaldTrump, I saw a summary of the changes you are making in DC's 4th of July celebration - turning it essentially into a celebration of the self-absorbed "America's Favorite President" you like to think you are. What a profound bummer this day will be. (continued)
2) You are such a symbol and culmination of manipulative, corrupt practices being brought to bear on both our political behavior AND our entertainment choices- not to mention American religious values- that a day celebrating you is a day celebrating the gaming of Democracy.
3) We have been played for suckers by you, @realDonaldTrump, and by the shrewd and powerful in the connected worlds of Church, State, and Corporations who want to protect their empires, good government for the People be DAMNED. International Organized Slime runs the show now.
4) And I don't think you can even comprehend- not even from reading something like this- that "Liberty and Justice for All" is supposed to be anything different from just a big old lifelong wet dream for you to have at our expense...
5) ...maintained for you by those manipulated to be Ye Royal Sycophants of @realDonaldTrump, and by those who cleverly pull your strings as their useful idiot, their ace in the hole.
6) Some say you intend to fight to stay in office in 2020, regardless of the vote total. I am sure you will doubt any electoral results not in your favor, @realDonaldTrump. And your manipulated minions will fight for you.
7) I pray that by that time the number of such will be small enough that the genuinely elected candidate will have a working government to serve.
8) Because that's the point. It's not a big wet dream for the greatest con artist. It is the government of the United States of America. We're not particularly hot shit right now, and gamers have gamed us to this point for centuries. But We Are The People.
9) And we are out, not just to defeat @realDonaldTrump, but to unseat and humiliate the forces of inequality, exploitation, racism, manipulation, and anti-environmentalism whose roots are centuries old.
10) Because the human race as a whole has realized our remarkable equality and our beautiful diversity, and you want us to forget that for the sake of you and the @GOP on July 4th and just help throw a party for @realDonaldTrump.
11) No, @realDonaldTrump , if we leave it up to you and to what we've let corporation- driven politics and the @GOP become, there will not be enough of America left to be worth celebrating.
