Some thoughts on the condition of the country and its future, right before election day. Things to consider before voting:
Still happening, new incident yesterday, damn it. Difference? People are noticing and commenting on it. ONE party condemns it and is looking for solutions. The other party approves it.
A lot of little children are still looking for their parents. Harassing immigrants is still happening, just has been kicked out of the spotlight by COVID-19.
UP! What a surprise! Businesses are going from shut-down to a few trying to open up. DUH.
Numbers are going up in almost every state. What a surprise! Businesses are trying to open up. ONE party advocates listening to medical and scientific experts and following their directions. The other party called them idiots and thinks if we just wait long enough and ignore it, things will get better. Those of us who live will be fine.
One party thinks it needs to be available for everyone, should cover preexisting conditions and should not force anyone to mortgage their house if anyone in the family actually gets sick. The other party? Well, they have a great plan and …………….. (Maybe it would show up someday.)
VOTE! (One party is openly trying to suppress the vote. Wonder why?)
Democrats lost the last election by not showing up, by assuming that no one would vote for someone who had never succeeded in any other part of his life, was being sued by many, ducked out on his own responsibilities and now wanted to be president. We know how THAT turned out.
