This just in: I think this will be my final post before election day. As always…I have a few comments.
First of all…Bohemian Rhapsody is a great movie and has my strongest recommendation; especially if you were ever a Queen fan.
I think I have discovered the difference between the way Democrats campaign and Republicans campaign.
Democrats tell you what they want to do.
Republicans tell you what you want to hear.
It’s no secret that Republican economic policies have been historically bad for the country but…they tell you that they are going to give you better healthcare and more income….all at no cost to you. Free stuff! Just what I wanted to hear.
It’s no secret that Trump is a racist. I also think it is racist if you are an elected official and turn your head when Trump acts out his racist tendencies. I also think that if you vote for these Republicans, knowing that they support a racist…you may have a bit of racism yourself. Don’t worry though…you can justify it by saying, “I just like Trump because he says what he means.” – A compelling argument; one that makes Charlie Manson equally qualified to be your president.
Republicans tell you that immigration is the reason you don’t have a job. They tell you that blacks are given opportunities that should go to you. They tell you that non-Christian immigrants, that also happen to not be white, are terrorists. They tell you that 5,000 starving women and children are invading our country to take what is yours. This is all what the “closet” racist wants to hear – justification for their hate and fear.
Republicans tell you that if they give money to their billionaire donors…it will trickle down and you will get free money. Just what you wanted to hear.
They tell you North Korea is no longer a threat, even as they continue to build nuclear weapons….Just what you wanted to hear.
They tell you America is finally respected by the world in spite of the fact that every country except Russia and Israel have said they think less of us since Trump took over….just what you wanted to hear (not that last factual part).
They tell you Democrats will take away your money and let every immigrant come in and vote and get free healthcare….just the reason to vote Republican that you were looking for.
They tell you that Climate Change is a hoax so they can cut regulations for their big donors. Just what you wanted to hear.
If you are a racist…if you don’t believe in science….If you are a conspiracy theorist…if you think saying, “I will give you healthcare and education for free” means that it will actually happen….then vote Republican.
If you are not any of the above…then you might be a Democrat or, at least, an independent.
Whatever you are…go out and vote.
But remember…if you do vote Republican…then you are voting for someone that will support Trump no matter what.
Up, up and away…
