Anyone who has ever started a new job will attest that it takes a while to learn the ins and outs of the job. No one, regardless of how much previous experience they have, knows everything on day one.
Back in 2017, when you know who started in the position that he has now, someone told me to give him a chance. Then and now, I am a Democrat and was devastated that Hillary Clinton had not won the election. But a small part of me hoped that he would grow into the job.
Nearly four years later, the opposite has occurred and over 200,000 Americans are dead from Covid-19.
Everyone who has died was loved by someone. They were someone’s parent, sibling, child, spouse/partner, etc. Six months ago, they were alive. Today, they are dead because of the careless and egotistical man whom we refer to as President of the United States.
They are 200,000 reasons to vote for Biden and Harris in November.
Now it seems that is maybe a reality, thanks to you know who. But two questions come up. Does he genuinely believe in what he is doing? Or, is this just another ploy to win votes?
A part of me would like to believe that these peace deals were achieved because he genuinely wanted to see these countries work with one another. But I know better. After nearly four years in office, he has yet to prove that he can see beyond number one. He has even admitted that the move to Jerusalem was only to gain support from the Evangelical Christians.
Only time will tell of these peace deals will help in November. The only thing that I know is that I don’t trust him and will not be voting for him.
Every four years, we are told that that year’s election is the most important. Though it was certainly true of past elections, this statement is I think a testament to how crucial it is that we vote in November.
Since we were children, Americans have been taught that we are a nation made up different people. But the one thing that binds us all together is that we are American.
As pretty as that statement is, it is a pipe dream, even in 2020. Racism and xenophobia still rule the day. It does not help when we have a President whose policies and beliefs essentially come down to one statement “whites only“.
Though he may deny it or walk about what he has said, there is no denying that his man is a racist.
The question is do we want a President for another four years who believes in “whites only?”
An election, especially a Presidential Election is a unique time in the political history of the United States. It is a time in which we, the people, can hire and/or fire those who we choose to represent our interests.
The 2020 Presidential election is two months away. At this point in time, the pressure on both sides of the campaign is only beginning to ramp up. Both the Republicans and the Democrats are doing everything in their power to win the election. However, there is one way to lose voters. The way is to insult them.
Yesterday, you know who called American soldiers who were captured and/or killed in battle “losers” and “suckers”.
This, from the guy who got out of serving in Vietnam because of “bone spurs”. This man is a coward and a bully. He talks a big game, but is never able to follow up with action. While our military and their families serve and protect our country, he insults them.
I come from military veterans. My grandfathers and uncles fought in World War II. One of my great-uncles on my mother’s paternal line was a veteran of World War I. Having their memories and their years of service spit upon by a man who did everything he could to avoid serving crosses a line that I take personally. It is just another reminder of who this person truly is and why he is unfit for office.
Obviously, his goal is to be President for another four years. Referring to those who gave their lives for the United States as “losers” and “suckers” is not the way to win a Presidential election.
One of the things that I have observed as I have voted over the last twenty years, is that the closer a Presidential election gets, the more intense it becomes.
In any other election year with any other Republican Presidential candidate, the fringe group QAnon would be dismissed for their completely out there conspiracies. But, because you know who has openly embraced this group, they have gained a new following and their theories are considered to be legit by some Americans.
His reasons for this welcome are purely egotistical.
“I don’t know much about the movement other than I understand they like me very much, which I appreciate,”
I hate giving this group oxygen and attention. But this is the only way to stop them. We cannot let them win. We cannot give them an air of political respectability and a foothold in Washington D.C.
We MUST vote in November. We MUST vote for the Democrat ticket and ensure that these people go back to the dark fringes of the internet they belong. If we don’t, then the United States as we know it to be may cease to exist.
A man is judged by the company he keeps, and a company is judged by the men it keeps, and the people of Democratic nations are judged by the type and caliber of officers they elect.
If that is the case, then you know who is a criminal. Earlier this week, former Presidential aide Steve Bannon was arrested with three other men for fraud in regards to a fundraising campaign for the border wall that was revealed to be a scam.
Bannon is the sixth person from among you know who’s inner circle to be arrested and charged for breaking the law.
In a few months time, Americans will be going to the polls and voting for our next President.
Do we want a President who is connected to fraudsters, liars, and those who are in politics for their own personal gain? Or do we want a President who puts his needs and the needs of his aides around him aside to lead the country? I don’t know about you, but I would prefer the latter to the former.
There is nothing like the energy of a Presidential election season. Regardless of who is running, there is a feeling in the air that only comes every four years.
As a life long Democrat, the last 3 1/2 years have been nothing but pure political torture. It felt like this country was on a downward spiral that would never end. Then Joe Biden announced last week that Kamala Harris would be his running mate. It finally felt like the sun was starting to peak out from behind the clouds.
The Senator and hopefully future Vice President is the subject of Randy Rainbow’s latest video. Entitled KAMALA! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody, Rainbow uses the title song from the musical Camelot to express his joy (and our joy by extension) that she is in the race.
The thing about politics and the political game is that it is incredibly easy to become cynical and hopeless. But when there is a candidate like Harris who is able to remind us the possibilities, then we are reminded that there will always be a sliver of light in the darkness.
The core of the the Democratic experience is the right and the experience of voting.
Unfortunately, some politicians believe that the only way to keep their job is to ensure that not everyone can vote.
You know who’s latest scheme to ensure that he wins the election is voter suppression. In this case, it is by undermining the Post Office financially and preventing mail in voting.
Every four years, we are told that that year’s election is the most important election, for any number of reasons. This year, I believe is a make or break year for the United States. Covid-19 should not be an excuse to not vote. We need to vote, either in person or via mail. We need to tell our political leaders to stop listening to the lies and b*llsh*t of you know who and start listening to the average voter.
Most of all, we need to ensure that he is a one term President.
When it comes to Presidential elections, the choice of Vice President is almost as important as the President.
History was made in the United States today. Kamala Harris was announced as Joe Biden’s choice for Vice President.
Unlike the current Vice President, Harris represents America in 2020. She has the experience, the work ethic, and the vision needed for the job. Fingers crossed, she and Biden will win and return this country to a state of semi-normalcy.
The best part is that Maya Rudolph will be back on SNL this fall.
