Maybe it’s just me, but I feel very uneasy about what’s happening in the country from a number of perspectives.
I was relieved when Donald Trump lost the election. He doesn’t believe it, but it’s true. Yet, the big loser continues to try to inspire discontent, while his loss was a function of his own doing.
His defeat saved our country from a new threat, an uprising of radical and liberal miscreants. They hide behind the skirts of righteous causes like racial equality, voting rights, free speech and income equality. The only problem is that they are violent and have no problem withholding the aforementioned rights from those that disagree with them.
In 2016, Trump had an easy target as an opponent. Clinton was just about as unlikable as Trump. America was sick and tired of the same old dirty politics of the Clinton era. Trump won because so many dreaded the thought of Hillary in the White House. This sounds like 2020.
Trump even surprised himself. I’m convinced that he thought he was going down in flames and all of a sudden Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan went red.
So, we’ve had to live with alleged scandals concocted by left wing zealots and the bias press for the past four years. The latter was so tilted that Trump coined a new expression, fake news.
Liberals tried everything to discredit the president. They paid for a fake dossier, they impeached him and were soundly defeated, and they colluded with the press that harassed the president every single day of his tenure.
Trump fought back, unsuccessfully. He never yielded to any of his opponents and still is defying them to this day. Yet, as mentioned earlier, his loss saved our country from me new threat- the radical and liberal segment of our population.
State and local governments shook in their boots when rioting and looting began shortly before the election. Governors and mayors want to defund police departments because a few bad eggs among the police acted aggressively. A socialistic and communistic wave shrouded many urban centers as the leaders of these revolutions called for open warfare.
Thank goodness Trump lost. A pandemic and violent civil unrest could have destroyed our republic.
OK, Biden is going to be our new president. Things are getting better. Really? Do you think so? Has Biden exhibited any leadership skills that makes us sleep easier each night?
We have a second or third or fourth wave of Covid wreaking havoc on our families and neighbors. All Joe has said to this point is that he wants everyone to wear a mask for the first 100 days of his administration.
Governors are closing restaurants and bars to the chagrin of the owners and patrons. Restaurants have been one of the hardest hit industries during this current economic time. Many are revolting against closures because no one has proven that restaurants that obey guidelines are causing the number of Covid cases to increase. Some leaders are basing business closure decisions on how many beds they have in hospitals that are available for new serious Covid cases.
Some segments of our economy are on their asses, while some are managing. The prior group are in dire straits. They along with middle class and needy families need relief. What have Pelosi and Schumer done to rectify this situation? Nothing. They want to open the money floodgates and make everything free for Americans. Instead, they should be negotiating with Republicans for a temporary fix and relief funds for those in trouble financially.
Who is negotiating for the Democrats? Pelosi? Why not take what Republicans are willing to agree to right now, and come back later for more? What the hell. Worst case is that liberals are going to control the White House and the House of Representatives.
I am extremely uncomfortable with socialistic lawmakers who are lurking around ready to pounce on Biden and influence his decisions. The US is not going to evolve into a socialistic state. Only misguided college professors and former hippies believe they will be part of a socialistic society in the near future. Our country is based upon capitalism and exceptionalism.
