AFTER THE KAVANAUGH HEARINGS, SCREW A WAVE, ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ BETTER VOTE, IF THE DEMOCRATS DON’T HAVE A BLUE TSUNAMI AMERICA’S TOAST!
Instead of dealing with yet another historic hurricane disaster, Trump meets with Kanye? This after the soulless, heartless, sellout Republicans rammed his Supreme Court perjuring savior through, both showcasing exactly what is wrong with politics, and why every vote really matters.
PLEASE SOMEONE WAKE ME UP FROM THIS NIGHTMARE! It keeps getting worse, and this time its taken me almost a month to wrap my head about what we just lived through. Sorry, but I’m warning you in advance, that this is one of those long ones. Simply put, too much has happened, at too fast a pace, to write a quickie. To my regular readers, and to those who are dropping by for the first time, first thanks, sometimes what I write reads like I’m trying to help keep myself sane by getting my thoughts and opinions out, as I try to figure out or find something good in anything we’ve suffered through. Perhaps one of these days, if I keep typing away, reliving what I’m trying to figure out, something constructive could be discovered. Maybe by connecting the dots the answers to our questions will show themselves. As we witness the possible death of our Democracy right in front of our faces, occurring in real time, I am stunned at how quickly we’ve gone from people laughing out loud at the idea of Trump even running for President, and how we are now on the cusp of over throwing our very sacred Democracy and installing a possible dictator or worse, the second coming of Adolf Hitler. And yes, I went there.
Most importantly, how is it possible that a man supposedly being investigated for treason, who possibly colluded with Russians to steal an American presidency, was allowed to choose a savior in the courts? I listened to the excuses or better lies Republicans used to explain why it was so necessary to add that new member to the court so quickly, but if we could wait over a year for the 2016 Presidential election, we could’ve waited a few months for the upcoming mid-term election. As they kept explaining then, let the people decide who should be allowed to choose a Supreme Court judge. Forgetting the fact that the people had elected a President, Barack Obama, to do just that and he had over a year and a half left in his term! The people are choosing in less then a month if Democrats get a seat back at the table, if they aren’t too happy with the way Trump and his minions have done their jobs while in charge. With just that written, excluding any talk about his choice, the people in power should have simply waited a few months. Any person that Trump chose before the election, would be suspect even if they turned out to be Saints. But Trump ain’t no Saint and neither is Brett even if they keep talking about him as the second coming. The only explanation for me is, that they know how guilty Trump is and they are saving their own skins. They unlike the rest of us, have seen the reports on Russian hacking, and all the juicy rumor filled Intel that only they are privy too. They know the truth, yet never act on it. All they do is attack whistle blowers and people who apparently are telling the truth. And God forbid you are a woman who comes out to report and relive what ever horrible experience that your accused has possibly done. Oh, and if you ask why it takes people so long to come out, just watch a tape of the kavanaugh hearings, all questions will be answered. Seems, the crimes they faced might not be as bad as having to deal with a bunch of old white republican women hating inbreds who attack you for the audacity of telling your story, of being a victim. And whats worse, the trolls, bots and minions of these fools, who attack them on social networks and worse real life. Let me ask you, would be as brave as Christine Blasey Ford? Would you be willing to have your life destroyed to relive the worse experience, that in many cases they have tried to suppress for decades, just to do the right thing? I’m not sure if I could.
Of course the Republicans have also looked at the polls and know more than us how badly their party is doing. Which explains their election campaigns this year. Have you seen anything more disgusting, racist and full of lies? I mean, according to their campaign rhetoric, they are trying to save pre-existing conditions, WTF? That the Democrats are the ones being mob-like, have they not seen the footage? Oh, I get it, just lie outta your asses, rinse, repeat and magically reality will disappear and once more the minority party will defeat the majority with less votes. Explains all the work on their part to stop Americans from getting to the voting booth. Why so afraid of the voters? Maybe because they have seen the numbers, they know the people are pissed. We were pissed on election day when Trump somehow was given the title, even though we the people had voted for someone else. We’ve been pissed each time he’s taken our nation one step closer to end times. And now some if not most of us are pissed with how they treated yet another woman, and allowed what could be a worthless womanizing drunk a seat at the table for possibly the next 40 or 50 years. Of course if the Democrats do get the majority, Kavanaugh could be impeached himself for his lies, his perjury on the stand, and his past indiscretions when he’s had one too many. Or of course, if Trump does become our first dictator in orange, officially, who knows in a few years, a Supreme Court, may also be a thing of the past, just like our democracy.
Otherwise why rush someone in that has come out to be the only human on Earth who believes a President can not be investigated, or impeached. Of course, they know that if the Democrats actually do get in, they know that they will also be investigated for their crimes. Their treasonous actions, aiding a traitor. Their willful stoppage of any investigation into anything bad that Trump or one of his cabinet members have done. For doing their best to halt and stop any investigation into election hacking, Trump’s foundation, Trump’s family businesses, and Trump’s taxes. How many of them will be found culpable of the same crimes? How many of them are in bed with Russians, too? Sorry, all of this can not simply be about greed, its about power and everything thats un-American.
If they can investigate and possibly remove Trump, how in any logical mind set, should Donald be allowed to choose another Supreme Court judge? Let the people decide. Of course as we’ve discovered in so many in your face, screw the people moments during this election campaign, the Republicans aren’t running on what they or Trump did, no pride in that. No, they are running a campaign of lies and attacks, trying to smear the Democrats into transforming into the enemy of the people that he’s smeared the press since his campaign for the White House began.
Really is it all about the Supreme Court? Seems with the Kavanaugh swearing in, every heinous act, tweet, insult and lie, are all forgotten in a flash because they the monsters in the Republican party got Brett in? Everything? How does almost two years of a really bad horror show get forgotten simply because Republicans rammed through his Supreme Court savior? How is it possible that everything people have bitched about not matter in the slightest? Perhaps its just for ratings and trying to get the audience riled up for the big election to come, but the poll numbers out of left field appear to be creeping over to the red side. They got that post kavanaugh bump the Republicans were so praying for, or is that preying on? At least thats how the media is trying to pitch these last few weeks before Democracy’s possible last stand. How much of a hold on people does the liar in chief and Fox faux news really have? The ratings on his reelection stomp events are beginning to lose their luster and hysterically even Fox has stopped airing them. But they still are all Trump all the time, and during the Kavanaugh hearings, the publicity ring of Donald’s perpetual reelection campaign beat every other political channel, you know the real news stations, in the ratings by a mile.
I like so many others out there are still trying to get a handle on what happened last election, and why Hillary Clinton isn’t our President and man I am so sorry I was so right about Trump and man that really sucks. Suffering through one of the worse nights of my life, that election night, I can not remember a time politically when I was so upset, sad, disillusioned and horrified. How could this happen? How could so many people be so wrong? But living through the Kavanaugh hearings, watching the Republicans enshrine for ‘life’ Trump’s savior was in lots of ways worse. Really worse, because Trump just becoming president, we thought that at least it couldn’t be as bad as some feared. But as we’ve learned, yes it could, and with Kavanaugh now in, those fears have been multiplied by the realization that the Republicans have given Trump the opportunity to transform himself from simply our Commander-in-Chief into a possible King of the World. Which was why I needed to wait out the eventual outcome before expressing my feelings on the matter. I am sick of all the predictions by all the talking heads. Why? Just report the news. Quit filling the airwaves with opinions and what could be’s, that the job of bloggers and op-ed writers, not television reporters. I would think after the last election that got us Trump, that would have given the predictors pause. But no, every day, they’re back on our televisions, expressing their opinions, and all I feel like is I’m wasting my time from whats really happening. Except like watching road kill, I sometimes can’t turn away. Perhaps 24/7 news actually does have its drawbacks? Too much time to fill, especially when there is nothing new to report. But when there is something breaking, its better than any good mystery on television.
When it was announced who Trump chose to save his bacon, end abortion, and install himself in as perennial King of the world, I decided that no matter what occurred, good or bad, I had to have closure on it, before I wrote my feelings on the proceedings and what were the ramifications from it. Of course while I waited for the Kavanaugh hearings to end to spill my guts about it, there were several times when the shocking revelations had me pulling out what’s left of my hair. I so wanted to jot down stuff, but because I knew that the next day, this plot twist of Trump’s insane evil plan to take over the world, which scarily showcased everything that makes you want to punch in a wall, if not cry yourself to sleep when it comes to politics, would go off on another tangent, I had to force myself to wait. Sadly I was right. As the story continued, my blood began to boil as the daily shifts in plot played out and as we watched what almost looked like both a slap in the faces of women everywhere, as well as the republicans spitting on our American flag. Each day of this torturous ever changing outcome bombarding us with what should have been a foregone conclusion, that no matter what came out, Trump would get his savior in. Even after Brett was sworn in, not once but twice, the second for the cameras, it took me several days to try to make sense of what we just lived though. How do the bad guys keep winning? When do the people rise up and say no more? Please let it be this election. Please, please. And that means Democrats and even Republicans, come out and vote like our futures depend on it because it does. I am still trying to take it all in. Still not believing how it all panned out. How the liars on the right enshrined not only a possible womanizing, molesting black out drunk who apparently has no memory of even taking a sip, and no I am not talking about Donald J. Trump right now.
I should mention, that I actually began writing this over 3 weeks ago, as our nation was preparing for that weeks major storm from Mother Nature. Seems we as a species has been very bad and she’s pissed human’s are destroying her home. Or perhaps its God’s wraith against the evil that Donald Trump and his ilk are doing since he took control of our world. Remember the good old days, when something insane occurred and we as a society sometimes had weeks or months to contemplate what just happened? We are currently living through a time when it feels like we are being pummeled on an hourly basis. I must also say that since Trump somehow got in, I’ve never been more depressed in my life about America and our future, but living through Kavanaugh’s unbelievably obnoxious and unethical hearing run by a pack of lying douchebag Republicans who have in many cases somehow have been in power for decades, has gotten me more angry about the insanity we are living through than I’ve ever been in my entire life. Seriously.
We are watching a political party bend over backwards, while somersaulting on pogo sticks during a hurricane, while bowing down to its orange dyed mentally unbalanced leader, as if they are working for him or a foreign entity, and not the America people. Its been 27 years since we had to deal with another Supreme Court battle like the one we just suffered through, and power has totally corrupted the majority Republicans. Sadly it’s possibly gotten worse since Anita Hill had to tell us about that disgusting Coke can. Now we have our beloved social networks to multiple that hate by millions, and I would think that by now, as a nation, the way we dealt with Brett’s accusations and his accusers would have been handled shall we say a bit differently. Especially in the #metoo age. But perhaps thats exactly why the old white fools performed the way they did. They had to send a message. All I can write is, lets hope that message that the media is claiming is gonna stop the blue wave from drowning the republicans, is as much a lie as every other thing they spew. This time, so matter how much they try to suppress the vote, so many people vote, that the share numbers will wash away the Republican majority, and any illegal actions they try, and Democracy will begin righting all the wrongs that have recently been written.
The trumpeting Republicans has completely fallen under the whims of our current president and will do everything in their power to skirt the rules, rush through without investigating evidence or witnesses, and skip all precedent, forgive or completely act dumb about all lies their people spew, to get anything they want through. If the Democrats lose in November the nation currently known as The United States of America is surely on borrowed time. That is definitely a forgone conclusion if the American people decide to sit out this November’s election and Trump gets to go down as America’s last president, and first king, or is that emperor? But history could be righted just a little, perhaps a lot, if the majority electorate actually gets out and votes as many of these lying traitors out. Of course in places like Georgia, we’ve discovered, that even with the masses wanting a Democrat in, its possible the current Republican in charge has cheated in such a way that just like with Hillary, the winner of the popular vote may not become the victor in the election come this November. Point blank, Uncle Sam really needs you to vote. And vote like your life depends on it, because it probably does. The democrats need to vote so overwhelmingly that nothing the Republicans do to steal people’s constitutional rights will be enough to overthrow the people’s wishes. I have to write this, and I mean this with all my heart and soul, anyone who doesn’t cast a vote this year as if our very Democracy depends on it, or worse, doesn’t vote at all in protest to make a statement, should all join the Communist Party, and ponder giving up their United States citizenships.
So a few weeks back, Hurricane Florance was about to attack… okay, I know some of you might have already forgotten that week’s disaster, just a hint, remember the tropical storm that hit Florida, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, South Carolina, to just begin to name some of the places that were effected. I’ll just presume some of you remember, I know 3 weeks right now is like a lifetime, but just go with it… as our nation hunkered down for that latest monstrous hurricane, that yet again the climate deniers refused to believe wasn’t at least partially caused by man’s self destruction and greed. Ironically these same people believe charlatans who claim the horrific once in a generation storms which are occurring on an ever quickening pace, are caused by the Gays, abortion, equal rights, the Democrats, the Jews, the libtards who spewed their lies about Kavanaugh and any deviant who dares disagree with their rules. But global warming, oh thats simply a made up scam concocted by fools who rather listen to what an orange faced liar recites off of a TelePrompTer during a reelection stomp speech, than to scientists and people with knowledge and experience who have spent their entire careers researching and reporting the facts.
Now about that Supreme Court hearing, as the evidence mounted or should I write as his yearbook revealed, it became crystal clear why the Republicans rushed the Kavanaugh hearings through. Seems the Boy Scout out of “central casting” as Donald described him, turned out to be a man with lots of hidden demons. So many in fact that the Republicans pretty much broke all the rules and hid millions of documents, especially those while he worked in the George Walker Bush White House. Which included torturing prisoners of war, former Vice President from Hell Dick Cheney’s favorite past time. Something that the Democrats kept trying to bring up which the Republicans kept trying to change the subject. Brett’s perjury in those matters didn’t seem to bother a single Republican, they just kept spewing the line that he was already vetted 6 times in his career, so why the sudden interest in his past, probably just political excuses by the Democrats to slow down the process. I mean that was so 35 years ago, why torment the great white hope by actually showcasing the monster behind the curtain? Seems, if you’re a Republican, you can lie when you testify. Apparently perjury is no longer a crime when you have the majority. Maybe America is already dead and the people just haven’t been informed, perhaps the powers that be are playing with us and are simply waiting til after Election day to let the citizens of the United States in on that bit of news.
Throughout the Kavanaugh hearings, the way too brief investigation which at first seemed like a life line for our Democracy, but sadly showcased too swiftly that it was simply just a sham, caused by Senator Flake’s supposed concern at what, in his own words, could destroy the very fabric of our nation. The Democrats did their best to try to take Brett down, but the trumpeting Republicans in power who seem to all be racist old white men who haven’t a clue about the female body, apparently believe that women were just created from a rib of a man and that they are the property of men. Sadly as we’ve discovered most of the woman in Republican politics also believe that bull too. That would explain some of their rhetoric which sounds like religious zealots when discussing women and politics. Of course they believe they know best, screw science, medicine, common sense or reality. Ignorance can be bliss if you just close your mind and simply fall in line, and are the majority, even if you didn’t acquire the majority vote.
So we suffered through the hearings, we witnessed a woman being grilled by another woman instead of the white old lying grumpy males, while the Democrats tried treating her like a human being, who showcased a reasonable and believable tale of horror, and how it had effected her life since that horrible experience occurred. We then watched a very arrogant, angry and pompous white male acting like he was born to be a judge on the Supreme Court and how dare anyone showcase his truth. He cried, whined and acted like a baby, like a man scorned, certainly not like a man who showcased at all, the qualities of someone who should be even mentioned in the same breath as the Supreme Court. This is a man who spent a lifetime doing evil work for the Republicans. Some have called him the Forrest Gump of Washington politics, because for the last 40 years or so he has been involved in some way or another with aiding the Republican agenda. From working for Ken Starr on the Bill Clinton Impeachment hearings, to assisting George Walker Bush during his battle against Vice President AL Gore during the recount, to then assisting George Walker Bush the former worst president in history with his torturous crimes, by perjuring himself when applying for his previous job in the courts.
Every time new evidence came out, mostly outside the halls of Washington, that should have been looked into by the FBI or whomever was investigating the truth, which could have been brought into the next round of hearings, that is if we had them, was instead brushed aside by the majority as nonsense. But we will never know as long as the Republicans have the majority what they did and what they didn’t investigate. The good news in all this, that is if you can get any out of the horrors of Brett as a now sitting Supreme Court judge, the Democrats have promised that if they get the majority in November they will investigate this and pretty much everything that has occurred since Donny put his hand on that bible and got sworn in.
We’ve have been told by the media talking heads that just 4 people were talked to during that way-too brief investigation. Instead of the week long investigation that the people were promised, we got a half week including the weekend question and answer session. We got pretty much a bogus attempt at wasting a few days times to quiet down the protests, instead of a real investigation into what actually happened. So even though, for several days, before during and afterwards we got an onslaught of reports of people from their high school and college years coming out, not one of those apparently mattered to Trump or his minions in the Senate. I honestly felt for a few days that here was a chance Brett might be stopped, because news reports seemed to showcase that yes, she was telling the truth, and that he was a sloppy drinker who couldn’t keep his hands to himself. I mean the elections were coming up in just a matter of a few weeks, shouldn’t the Republicans want to at least look like they were tying to get the woman’s vote? I mean with the numbers that kept growing every day, it seemed that it was inevitable that Trump would lose this one. But of course he didn’t. And Brett, we discovered turned into Mister Hyde and it worked. Seems in his days long preparation for his hearing, Kavanaugh was told to act like Donald, to act like a prick and the way things are now-a-days, it worked like a charm. That pathetic display which made most people come out and say Brett didn’t have the disposition to be a sitting judge on the Supreme Court let alone in his current position, actually was the thing that put him over the top. The man who initially had been described as a saint who never drank, swore or possibly defecated in his life, by the Trumpeting Republicans who jammed him through, were hiding all of Brett’s inner demons that they could.
I am exhausted by what we’ve lived through the last few years and the fact that all our lives seem to be the plaything of a tyrannical monster right out of some dystopian nightmare written by a very angry mentally challenged author. Perhaps ‘we’ as a collective nation deserve what we are getting. Didn’t we recently go to war by attacking the wrong nation? You know the one George Walker Bush got us into and the one apparently we’re never ever getting out of again. George Walker might never pay a price for all the millions of people who died, all the lives he destroyed, and how pathetic he was as our President. We know Cheney surely hasn’t. Look at what ‘we’ did to that country under their watch. The destruction we caused. I understand they weren’t angels, but they didn’t attack us that day, other people did. Sadly when the Democrats were back in power they were too busy trying to right the ship Titanic that the Republicans had turned America into to go after the monsters that caused the crash into the iceberg in the first place. So instead of taking to task the horrors that they did, the now new majority tried to fix the nation, which gave the monsters on the right the chance to try to tear apart President Barack Obama and the Democrats, and way too swiftly regain the majority they so justly deserved to lose. Unfortunately for the good of the nation, the Democrats always try to do the right thing. Somehow no matter how horrible or obscene the Republicans get, when it comes to campaigning, they know how to get the people to listen to their lies and to magically forget everything they’ve actually done. Somehow, the lies they spew, the insults, the conspiracies, the racist garbage takes over the air waives, and the real facts and the real records get thrown out. Scarily the only time Donald J. Trump actually ever told the truth, was during that infamous debate, when he went off on Bush and expressed what a shit show it was. Remember how everyone booed him. How this was gonna end his campaign. It was the first time I believed he had a chance to win. I can still remember getting the chills at the thought. How petrified I was at what those ramifications meant.
The worse part about the whole kavanaugh debacle was, the final vote was 50-48 and it turned out as usual to be a political straight line party vote. Most in the Republican party in the Senate looked at the facts or the ramifications, they just voted along with their buddies. So 49 of the Republicans who voted ‘Yes’ disregarded everything shady about the nominee, and 47 Democrats looked at the facts, considered what it could mean for Brett to be sworn in and what those consequences were and voted ‘no’. Even if you didn’t believe the accusations, Brett’s demeanor should have turned you into a ‘no’ , but not one republican even wanted to discuss his many lies, or his previous convictable perjuries when questioned in the past. Not even Jeff Flake, who became a hero to millions of Americans for a few days. That is til the truth of what the bogus hearings really transformed into. Perhaps, Jeff himself was in on the charade, to cover himself for his presumed run for the presidency, or more likely, his television gig on one of the political networks, as soon as he exits his office.
But even with those votes out of the way, there was still hope. All we needed was Republicans Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and one Democrat, at least in party affiliation, Joe Manchin, to vote with the Democratic party line and Brett would be toast. All we needed was these 3 to vote against, and Kavanaugh would’ve been forgotten in history, as opposed to being possibly remembered in the future as the man who helped enshrine Donald J. Trump as Emperor, first ruler of Trumpland. For a few hours it got tense on Capital Hill, when Lisa Murkowski voted ‘no’. She simply said, that it was too much of a rush and not a thorough enough investigation to vote him in for a lifetime appointment. But sadly all hope faded pretty quickly, once Jeff Flake announced that even though he wasn’t happy with the 3 day query, or should I write joke, that he announced screw it, he was voting for Brett because there was no corroborating evidence. Which was when I screamed at my television that the fix was in. How could their be any, they never investigated the witnesses or the evidence, nothing that kept coming out. They hid in a room regurgitated what they already had, and figured out the spin they would say to get past this minor inconvenience that they had to all go through, in order to get Donny’s baby in. They didn’t really investigate, you two faced liar. You of all people, Jeff Flake know that. Remember you were on the committee which got to see the reports from the investigators. This, ‘no corroborating evidence’, turned out to be the go to phrase by anyone who was on Trump’s side. I mean how could there be any answers when they didn’t investigate the people who claimed they had things to share?
Unfortunately, I wasn’t shocked when Joe Manchin announced he was voting yes, I mean, doesn’t he always vote as a Republican to save his job as opposed to do his job? Happily to report, according to polls in his area, his voting ‘yes’ for Brett, might actually lose him his seat of power. One can only hope, Republican or Democrat, that his replacement isn’t any worse. The final nail in America’s coffin however was driven in by what turned out to be the biggest lying douche bag in Washington, whose on a par with Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, and Paul Ryan. Susan Collins of all people, who has spent her career promising to her constituents that she would never vote in anyone who would vote out Roe V. Wade, repeatedly lied through her teeth when she said that she would wait to see the evidence and listen to the witnesses. At the same time refusing to meet any of the citizens who wanted to let her know how they felt. These woman and men who had wanted to share their horrifying stories of abuse. Seem’s when Brett told her that a woman’s right to an abortion was the law of the land and that he would never touch it, she believed his lies. Why? She knew what Trump had promised. She knew who had suggested him in the first place, and what their agenda was.
So sadly when she had the chance to do what the late John McCain had done last year, when he thumbed down the bill to kill Obamacare for the people and not just to fall in line with the rest of her party. Collins instead announced ahead of time as if she was about to repeat McCain’s historic move, she then came out to an audience of millions and wasted 40 minutes of every body’s time explaining why she would be voting yes. Susan Collins decided to go against everything she had pitched for years. Seems she’s just like the rest of the monsters on the right, who didn’t care about women or their rights. I always had a bad feeling about her, but like others who believed her charade, Collins appeared to be a voice of reason. One of the moderates as they like to call them. But at the most important point in her career, the vote that will put her name into the history books, she outed herself as just another lying Republican who only cares abut her own pocketbook. Instead of proving her word, she announced she was gonna vote ‘yes’ to Trump’s choice. Sadly nowhere in anything she spewed that day, brought up his perjury when it came to Bush’s torture, or his many lies about his yearbook and what he and his disgusting teenaged friends had put into that historical document, which proved what a POS he and they were. Susan Collins like the rest of the Republicans never brought up the fact that Trump was getting a man who announced a President can’t be impeached! They actually went out of their way to not bring that up. Or that he was chosen by a religious white-wing organization, who wanted to bring religion to the classroom and the white house. Who apparently are okay with destroying our democracy as long as they can have as many guns as they like and can continue transforming our nation into what hellhole they have conceived of as their heaven. So the gas lighting of America has worked its magic once more. Brett Kavanaugh is now a sitting Supreme Court judge, till he retires or we as a nation goes buh bye. And if the talking heads on television are right, the way Brett got him, by acting like a POS, that it has helped rile up the sheep on the right. Somehow this Trump victory, has caused every fowl disgusting racist comment to be forgotten that Trump or his minions have spewed and what just occurred during Brett’s enshrinement proceedings never occurred.
Well screw that, I’ve personally had it. I’m voting straight party line for the Democrats. Not that that is really a change from every other election I’ve participated in. But this year, there’s one big exception. I’m actually working at a polling station on election day. Nice way to earn a few bucks, by helping other citizens when they arrive to do their patriotic duty. I must tell you, after going through the training session, which is a requirement, my admiration for those who have done this job in the past has grown enormously. Lets just say, it ain’t as simple as it looks. And that doesn’t even mention the responsibility I feel and the excitement I felt when I received the e-mail explaining to me that I had passed the test. Yes, there was a test, and I passed and I get to work on election day. Yeah me, yeah Democracy. I honestly wanted to see Democracy working for its citizens with my own eyes, from another angle. I mean, scarily this maybe the last time an American will be able to vote. Yes, I believe that. I must add once more with a caveat, that anyone who doesn’t vote this year as if our Democracy depends on it, is as delusional as Donald J. Trump. They say this each Election year, but I honestly do believe that this election is the most important in our lifetimes, just as the last one had been. Trump proved why it is important to take your vote seriously. And how important it is to have the right person in the job. What can one man do? Unfortunately way too much damage. This upcoming election proves that even the midterms are important, and hopefully will cause people to come out by the millions as never before to make a statement. And according to what I’ve been seeing, the numbers so far in early voting, are through the roof. Of course we don’t know as of yet who those votes are for. But my feeling is, perhaps that Blue Tsunami I’ve been praying for is happening even as we speak. If we can all just somehow drown out the lies and magical thinking that the republicans are trying to weave over all of us. As they attempt to make us forget what has actually happened and what we know to be true. I’m hoping by early Election eve the realization of what might just be happening will cause Trump to start packing his bags. Once he realizes its over, what with Mueller they say about readying for his big announcement in February, Donald’s probably gonna start making plans for lots of plastic surgery, for his years on the lam. While he tries to evade capture and his eventual life on death row, as he awaits his well deserved ending.
That is if the people vote, and don’t all turn out to be the sheep who all believe the lies they learn from Russian bots and the fools that share the conspiracies as truth. That is if the people start seeing everything that Trump spews as lies, as opposed to the most obvious ones which people throw away as supposed bad jokes. I’m hoping that the amazing Woman’s march that took place right after Trump was announced president was more than just a statement. As well as all the other protests that have sprung up since that have made America sometimes feel like we are back in the protest glory days of the 1960’s during the Viet Nam war. I’m hoping everyone out there who voted for Hillary or Bernie or even Jill Stein, comes out in droves to prove that their votes mattered and were robbed by Russia interference. I’m hoping that at least enough of the fools who got suckered into voting for Trump and his minions last time, have woken up and are pissed at the monsters who told them the lies, who got them to swallow everything. Maybe through guilt or common sense, or even a sense of patriotism, lets hope they all vote out everyone of these Republicans traitors and charlatans who had turned them into the sheep they became. How could these people that we voted in do that to us? How could they tell us lies and go along with Trump as they did when they know he was lying? And now we are culpable in their crimes, by way of atonement, maybe the former fans of Donald will now vote the monsters out. So you think your vote doesn’t matter? How you’re making a statement, or a protest vote, is a good idea when the possibility of the end of Democracy actually can come true? And are you still justifying it by saying you would do the same thing again, even after what we’ve lived through...well shame on you. Enjoy whatever Hell you wind up in. I just hope there are enough real American’s out there, and somehow that in the end, everything works out. Otherwise, its been run living in America, what was once the greatest nation on Earth, but sadly was destroyed by fools on the inside who allowed wolves from other nations to destroy it. Lets hope those wolves die off quickly and returns to the place we all loved just a few short years a go.
