I Blame the Republicans for the Riots in DC

One of the core values of this country is freedom of speech. The ability to disagree with your neighbor and/or the government without loosing your freedom or your life is tantamount to everything that is American.

But there is still a line that had yet to be crossed. Until today.

As Congress debated and prepared to certify that Joe Biden will be the next President, rioters stormed the Capital building, forcing members of Congress to to hide. One woman was killed. Believing the lies that you know who has been spreading for weeks that he lost the election, they have turned to violence to achieve their goals.

This is not democracy. This does not happen in the United States.

If there anyone to blame, it is the Republicans. It is one thing to support a candidate who matches your beliefs. It is another thing entirely to blindly follow an inept, immature, and selfish man-child who is nothing more than a used car salesman. This is how democracy dies. This is also how diversity dies.

The only bright spot is that both Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock won their respective Senate runoff elections in Georgia.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I can’t wait for January 20th.

What is David Perdue Afraid Of?

Anyone with the most basic knowledge of how democracy works knows that a debate between the candidates is an important part of the election process.

For some reason, Georgia Senator David Perdue decided to skip the debate against opponent Jon Ossoff on Sunday.

The obvious question that I see is to ask what Senator Perdue is afraid of? Is he apprehensive about answering questions about the accused stock trade he made earlier this year, just as Covid-19 hit the country? Or is there something else he wants to hide from the voters of Georgia?

Just as an FYI for those who do not read my blog regularly, I live in New York. I cannot vote in this particular Senate race. That being said, his choice of being somewhere else on Sunday brings up questions that cannot be ignored.

Sometimes, we learn everything we need to know about a person or topic by silence. This is one of those times. The fact that Senator Perdue was conspicuously absent speaks volumes.
