It is a scary time in United States politics.
We have a President who the majority of voters did not support.
We have a newly appointed Supreme Court Justice who the majority of citizens did not support.
We have a tax bill that only benefits the upper 1% of Americans, and not the majority of tax payers.
We have trade wars that the majority of citizens do not support and have done irreparable harm to American businesses and farmers alike.
We have a Senate that does not represent the interests of the majority of voters, but rather caters to the whims of the Russian puppet serving in the highest office.
Our government is in crisis. A small minority of elitists are running this country pandering to the interests of big business and evangelicals, not the interests of the majority of U.S. citizens.
These are facts. They are irrefutable.
Remember this is how the Nazi Party took over Germany.
Hitler’s Nazis were not in the majority. They were a minority….a very vocal minority, but a minority just the same.
They took power by attacking the free press, attacking minorities, and preaching hate disguised as nationalism.
Donald Trump behaves the same way. He spews hatred, attacks the free press, and blames all of America’s perceived problems on minorities and immigrants. He calls Nazi’s “good people” and endorses racists and rapists while openly making fun of disabled people, sexual assault victims, war heroes, families of fallen soldiers, and minorities.
There is a system of checks and balances that is supposed to keep a minority from taking over government.
We have the three branches of government: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. This is to ensure that no one branch of government can act without recourse.
The problem is, our Senate and House of Representatives are not standing up to a corrupt President. In fact, voting against the interests of the people to gain favor with this corrupt President. And, what we have just seen is the lifetime appointment of a rapist and liar to the Supreme Court.
So what can we do?
The answer is that we need to vote in the November 6 elections. Everyone needs to exercise your right to vote. The stakes are to high not to.
Take the power away from the con artists and corrupt politicians using office to line their own pockets and perpetuate their own racial and religious biases that don’t represent the interests of the people of the United States of America.
“Make America Great Again” is a nice slogan. But in the hands of people who use such words to run a con game on the American people, they are nothing more than an empty promise, as meaningless as the Made in China MAGA hats Trump hawks for personal profit.
I applaud celebrities like Taylor Swift who have come forward to encourage people to vote with a conscience.
Let’s take back our government. Let’s stand up for woman’s rights to govern their own bodies. Let’s stand up for investing in public education. Let’s stand up for affordable healthcare. Let’s stand up for LGBTQ rights. Let’s stand up for racial equality.
Vote like your life depends on it, because it is the life of our country itself that is in the throws of a hostile takeover.
We need to rescue America. We can do it together. Vote.
Peace. Love. Trust.
