With the Party of Trump fully engage in the derailment of the November elections it leaves the constitutionally minded blue voter wondering how to cut off the oncoming civil war. Post November 3, an old white male will once again be selected to place himself behind the resolute desk for four years. Who that will be, is up to you! Mail-in voting has begun and every small hiccup will be amplified to a deafening point to further erode your constitutional rights. The Party of Trump knows that big pole numbers translate into an election loss for him. So, the only way to save face and throw this thing into a hand-selected Supreme Court will be to sow doubt. Sowing doubt is the only thing the Party of Trump and his enablers do and do well.

The Party of Trump will stop at nothing to win, nothing! They will lie, beg, borrow and steal to secure another four years. In fact, that is exactly what they are doing. I’ll go so far as to say this President faked his own illness to take a cocktail of steroids and a Regeneron “Therapeutic,” just so he could try and gain some ground in the polls. The antibody medicine he took, it’s made from the stem cells of aborted fetuses. Which flies directly in the face of everything he says he stands for. I’ll be interested to know how the latest proposed SCOTUS feels about this since she’s such a staunch advocate for the pro-life movement. I’m curious to see if she says something, but I’m sure the answer is no, she’ll stay quiet and do what she’s told. They all swallow their souls and tear the fabric of this country with their very conscience decisions.

If at this point you are undecided as to who to vote for, if you can’t see the inherent difference in these two candidates, let me see if I can build a compelling case for you. One of the candidates has been holding the door open for racists, they have continually denied science and flown in the face of everything that they were being told. They are proven tax cheats; they are over $400 million in debt. They hold campaign rallies on land that you and I own. They have created a Constitutional crisis; and are responsible for over 216,000 United States deaths due in large part to denying science and not following protocols. Promising a vaccine before the election when every expert has said the absolute contrary. They are constantly choosing party over people when they make a proclamation not to vote on a stimulus package until after the election. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate hangs at record numbers and people are suffering. The country is on fire and Trump is selling Trump water to put it out.

The other candidate is Joe Biden.

So, as we move closer and closer to the deadline to vote, November 3, the tensions will run higher, the vitriol will get nastier, and hope will seem to be lost. It’s not! We still have time to send a clear and concise mandate to the current administration. He lost the popular vote the last time, he’ll lose it this time. But the numbers need to be so lopsided that there can be zero question as to what the choice needs to be. He’s a fake President who thinks his base wants him to ham it up and rip open a shirt to reveal a Superman logo. Yeah, true story. I don’t know which is more tone deaf, the actual thought process that came with that scheme or forgetting the Superman “S” stand for Truth, Justice and the American Way — something Trump knows nothing about. While I’m on it, I’m guessing that Superman was an undocumented immigrant, something else this administration doesn’t seem to warm towards.

The manifest is this: Vote blue down ticket, everything Democratic (or Progressive and like-minded independents). Bottom line is this, over the next two to four years we need adults in position of power and influence. We need to pull it back in and get control of it again. Should this thing swing back towards the adults, our work is far from over, but nothing will be burning and we can start to rebuild.
