In times of crisis, we look to our political leaders for guidance, comfort, support, and most of all, leadership. Given the multiple crises that the United States is currently experiencing, it should be a no brainer for those in the halls of power. But, as anyone who is reading or watching the news lately can tell you, the lack of national leadership from the top is not as forthcoming as we need and expect it to be.
Which is why we need to remind those in the power that we, the citizens, are the bosses. Not the other way around.
Sarah Cooper is a comedian and author whose recent video’s of lip-syncing you know who’s comment has gained national attention.
The Lincoln Project is, I think a perfect representation of the times we live in. Run by a group of prominent Republicans (one of whom is George Conway, husband of Presidential mouthpiece Kellyanne Conway) their goal is to ensure that you know who does not win the election in November.
As Americans, we have a proud history (even with all of it’s flaws) of being a free people who stand by the ideals that are the cornerstone of this nation. If we do not speak up and vote in November, the country that we proclaim ourselves to be may no longer exist.
In this world, there are two types of politicians. The first type talks a good game, but does not act on their promises. The second puts their money where their mouth is and follows up on their promises.
Yesterday was supposed to be you know who’s big campaign rally in Tulsa. Instead of having a packed arena full of adoring supporters, local officials estimate that there were only about 6,000 people in the audience. As usual, the campaign blamed the so called “radical” protesters and the media for the lower than expected turnout. Anyone with a brain (at least from my perspective) would be able to figure that the lower turnout is due to his complete inability to the job, in addition to a spike in Covid-19 cases.
The fact is that he is an absolute failure as President. Now granted, no one is perfect. We all have flaws. That being said, it takes an adult to recognize those flaws and work with others to reach a successful outcome. He is both unable and unwilling to work with his team and listen to those who have a different perspective. A real leader knows the difference between knowing when to talk and when to listen. This man would not know the difference if it smacked him in his face.
We need a real leader. We need a President who listen to experts, know when to talk, when to listen and most importantly, puts the nation above their personal needs. Come November, we must vote him for Joe Biden.
