2022 Elections: Vital to Our Future

A day that will determine the future of America, at least for our lifetimes

Published

on

Let us be frank: Tuesday is going to be a day that will determine the future of America at least for our lifetimes. Republicans must retake the House, and, hopefully the Senate.

Independent of the particulars of each of our lives, this day will be among our most momentous. Sure, you were born. You graduated from high school and probably from college. You met your mate. You married or cohabitated. You had one child or more. You weathered the deaths of loved ones. You landed that first job, received promotions, bought your first house, traveled, etc. Just the same, this Tuesday will rank right up there with the events that we all personally have already experienced.

The Unthinkable

Through their massive cheating, fraudulent vote counting, and election deceit, if the Democrats somehow retain the House, they will be emboldened beyond anything we have yet witnessed. And we have witnessed a lot.

Democrats will believe they’ll never lose again.  If you don’t like what the FBI has been doing, such as raiding people’s homes with guns drawn, if you don’t like the way Merrick Garland demonizes parents who are concerned about what their children are learning in grammar school, or how the Department of Justice, en mass, ignored the 2020 in hundred of cities, if you don’t like the way that Nancy Pelosi consistently abuses her position as Speaker, watch out.

If the Democrats were to somehow hang on to Congress, they will be even sharper and swifter with their attacks on all who disagree with them. They would conduct more sham hearings. They would issue more subpoenas. They would support more FBI raids. They would allow more millions of illegals to swamp our southern border.

They would spend us into oblivion. They would erase all student debt for all time. They would sharpen the rhetoric between races and ethnic groups. They would conduct show trials, for the slightest of offenses, and if there were no real offense they’d make them up. In short, they would demonize Republicans at every turn.

If the Democrats were to retain a majority in the House of Representatives, the situation would not be pretty. Without Republicans controlling Congress, the U.S. cannot withstand another two years of Leftist manipulation supported by the lamestream media and the big internet tech companies.

What about the Senate?

By many polls, Republicans should take the Senate with a 52 to 48 majority, possibly 53 to 47, or better. What if the massive cheating by the Democrats, the election fraud, and outright gaslighting contorts our republic? The Senate is an important chamber, not only for its committees, its ability to pass laws and enact legislation, and its approval of budgets and funding, but for its leadership.

The 100 senators are entrusted to support all Americans and to uphold our citizenship process which, in turn, upholds our sovereignty. An effective and law-abiding Senate is vital for the United States of America to continue on for our future.

In reclaiming the House of Representatives and the Senate, though, we cannot stop the Biden Administration’s lunacy regarding international affairs, military policy,  social policy, and so on. We can hold those government officials accountable who have transgressed over the last 15 to 20 years – those who have knowingly mocked our judicial system, our federal agencies, and our populace, by doing whatever they wanted to do, democracy be damned.

State by State

In another arena, we have a decent chance to pick up key governorships around the country, particularly in New York, Arizona, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Working with a Republican-dominated House of Representatives and a Republican-dominated Senate, governors can make great strides in reversing and correcting the unending blunders of, and calculated destruction by, the Biden administration.

Kari Lake in Arizona, Tudor Dixon in Michigan, and Doug Mastriano in Pennsylvania, along with Greg Abbott in Texas and Ron DeSantis in Florida can do much to stem the tide of unending masses flooding our borders. In New York, Lee Zeldin can set the tone for how states and municipalities should be protecting their people from crime: protecting their people from doing everyday things like taking the subway or shopping at a local market or simply walking on the street.

For sure, November 8th will be one of the most important days in my life and the future of the United States as we know it.

Will Democrats Do What They Must?

Published

on

On a warm August evening in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon said from the Oval Office that he was resigning, becoming the first president to do so. He confessed that he no longer had “a strong enough political base in the Congress” to finish his term.

Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., the 1964 GOP presidential nominee, was a respected conservative leader in a Senate whose Republican ranks were less conservative than now. In a May 1973 interview with Time magazine, Goldwater had given an early warning, “If it can be proved that he (Nixon) lied, resignation would have to be considered. It would be quick. Everything would be over, ended. It wouldn’t drag out like impeachment.”

At a regular Senate Republican Conference lunch on august 6 of 1974, Goldwater had fumed: “There are only so many lies you can take, and now there has been one too many. Nixon should get his ass out of the White House today!” When he went to see President Nixon, Goldwater confided, “There’s not more than 15 senators for you.” After that showdown, the curtain on President Nixon’s presidency came down three days later.

In this challenging time in our history when President Biden’s competency is under serious question, will Democrat leaders have the courage to do the same? With this report, more Democrats and Independents will be less inclined to vote for Biden. That may very well impact the future of many Democrat politicians whose own election could be impacted if their voting base stays home. After his Wednesday night address, the evidence that Biden is in trouble is plainly obvious.

President Biden’s poll numbers are now at an all time low. The shocking Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur report suggests that Biden should not be indicted because Biden is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” that a jury would be unlikely to convict. The Special Counsel also noted that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen;” he noted that such actions “present serious risks to national security.” It is clearly a risk for Biden to remain in office.

When President Biden addressed the country after the report was disclosed, he asserted that his memory was fine, and the report confirms that he was not indicted and did nothing wrong. His comments to the press questions were combative and defensive. He took no personal responsibility, blaming his staff for the faulty storage of classified documents. His message was strident and clear-Trump is guilty, and I did nothing wrong.

If he is not competent to stand trial for his actions, how can he be confident enough to remain president? It’s time for a private confrontation by Democrat leadership. If Biden does not listen, it is time to exercise the 25th amendment option to remove him from office.

It is not easy to use that 25th Amendment option. It is even more difficult with only 9 months before a critical national election. Waiting until the Democrat Convention in August leaves little time to right the ship and promote a replacement candidate.

Democrats, do your job to clean out your own house. President Biden is not competent to meet the challenges of our time. Do it now or pay the price in November. As Republicans, we hope you let Biden remain your candidate, but that is selfish. President Biden is our current leader and his decisions impact all of us and a world in turmoil. This isn’t about politics. We can’t afford even eleven more months of a mentally incompetent President.

Getting Beyond our Convenient Political Narratives

Published

on

There is only one movie up for Oscars that I have any interest in seeing win, “American Fiction.” This movie has the guts to call out all liberal media, book publishers, and Hollywood producers who have made it clear that the only narratives they will allow to be seen support their woke worldview.

In “American Fiction,” an author snubbed by publishers because his novels are not “black” enough decides to play a joke on the publishing industry by changing his identity to a fugitive who writes in graphic terms about what it’s “supposed to be” like to be a “black” in America. The book fits the liberal narrative and earns the author an offer of $750,000, a new movie contract, and award consideration. He’s disgusted by the liberal bias but plays along only to see a disturbing reality play out. The truth is that it pays to support liberal narratives.

Most of the Oscar nominations and comments at the ceremony prove a left-wing bias every year. That’s why fewer and fewer conservatives even watch. Where is the consideration for popular movies like “Sound of Freedom” or “Boys in the Boat?” They don’t fit the Left narratives that “nothing bad comes across an open border” or “nothing good comes out of America.”

It’s true that we all tend to fall victim to “selective scanning.” It’s tempting to search for information sources that reinforce what we want to believe. Both sides of the divide tend to say the same thing—“If you knew the ‘facts,’ you would know the ‘truth,’ ‘OK, my truth!’” Both sides of any divide have a narrative with “facts” and “expert opinion” to back their position.

There are numerous examples of well-defended narratives that keep America divided:

The COVID Vaccines are good for you vs. The COVID Vaccines have the potential to do more harm than good (You can find some research and anecdotal evidence that vaccines work and similar evidence that some people have died or developed serious illnesses).

Climate Change will result in man’s destructive vs. Climate Change has multiple causes, and we can do little to change (Clearly, there is evidence of man doing damage to the environment, and there is evidence that there have been extended warm and cold periods throughout earth’s existence with or without man).

Entitlement Programs are essential to help those who can’t help themselves. Entitlement Programs foster government dependency and prevent self-sufficiency (It’s true that people need help, but it is best provided by a distant government bureaucracy or by family, friends, and local charities who can access needs and provide focused assistance and support).

Undocumented Aliens should receive government assistance and have a path to citizenship; Illegal Aliens have committed crimes and should be deported (There is evidence that some who have crossed the open border have committed terrible crimes, but it’s also true that some have been good workers with strong family values).

Both leading candidates for the 2024 Presidential election are loved and hated. They have counter-narratives depending on your side of the divide.

The left’s Trump narrative is predictable. Once elected, President Trump will be a “dictator,” “seek revenge,” “be fatal to the American experiment,” “a felon,” and “a threat to democracy.” In Short, the left’s message is simple, “Trump is dangerous for America and should be in jail.”

The right’s narrative couldn’t be more different. President Trump will “restore America,” “ensure our freedoms,” “destroy the deep state,” and “defend the Constitution.” In short, “Trump’s been victimized by politicized accusations and will save the America we love if he can just be elected.” Both can find statements from Trump’s speeches and past actions to attempt to justify their claims.

To the right, President Biden is “senile,” a “bumbling idiot,” “too old,” “an un-American traitor,” “a ‘big guy” crook,” and “dangerous to the future of America and should be impeached and in jail.” To the left, Biden has “helped keep America open to immigrants,” “helped prevent a climate calamity,” “provides necessary benefits for minorities,” “makes the rich pay their fair share,” and “is the only person in the way of a rightwing dictatorship.” Both views can find ammunition to support their claims.

Notice that neither side likes you to watch a whole speech. They want you to see just the clips and evidence that reinforce their own narratives about the candidate. Welcome to soundbite politics!

The 2024 election is too important for our future to be left with biased narratives about two candidates. It is not just the President that you elect; it is the people and the policies they bring with them that will determine the course for America’s future.

Instead of limiting yourself to biased narratives, there is much to consider in making an informed decision on who to elect. Both candidates have a record to look at. What are their major accomplishments? Do you support what they did as President? Now, look to the future. Join those who are demanding that both parties lay out their Contract with America. What are the top five promises and priorities for each party?

Let’s get beyond the name-calling and demand that they come before the people to debate the issues that matter most. Both these candidates are more than the narratives we have created. Let’s hear from them directly and then vote. To do less is not responsible citizenship and is detrimental to the future of our amazing country.
