During any Presidential election season, voters expect that both Democrats and Republicans will stick with and support other members of their party. Some may choose for various reasons, to vote for a candidate from the other party. But, for the most part, we stay with the political party we are affiliated with.
But this Presidential election looks to be different. After four years of supporting and defending you know who, there a number of Republican Senators who are slowly backing away from him.
Are the rats abandoning the sinking ship?
As I see it, this new development tells me exactly who these politicians are. Like the “dear leader” they defended and supported only a short time ago, these men and women are clearly only out for themselves. They care nothing for their constituents who voted them into office.
Now it’s time for them to pay. We will not forget where their priorities and loyalties were placed. In two weeks, we will remind them who holds the cards in this game.
The question is, do those in power listen to the scientists (and the doctors by extension)? Or do they believe that they know better?
Nearly two weeks ago, you know who held a rally in Nevada. Among the many ludicrous statements he made, one was the following:
“He’ll listen to the scientists,” Trump continued. “If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression, instead of, we’re like a rocket ship. Take a look at the numbers.”
As usual, he plays with the facts to suit his needs. The county is in a depression not because of Joe Biden, but because of you know who and his administration. To be fair, we have a greater picture of Covid-19 now than we had in March and April. But, that does not mean that the details that were available back then were not credible or important.
I’m sure that if time machines existed, many of us would go back to the beginning of the year and try to warn our past selves about what was to come. But time machines are a work of fiction. We can only move forward and honor the memories of those who have passed.
Honoring those memories includes listening to the experts and saving as many lives as possible. To save those lives, we must vote for a President who will work with the scientists and doctors. Obviously that is not you know who.
