THE MORNING AFTER
The morning after the special election
seems to be the proper time to voice one’s opinion as to what is happening in
First of all let me say that this is a
different America today than what was turned over to me as I achieved
adulthood. My peers of yesteryear
actually left me a better country than that I’m leaving my offspring and I am
both disappointed and sorry for that.
Today we have a gigantic division in what
seems to be the two party ruling systems that we have used for so long.
Now in my seventies and having survived
many presidential elections, I find myself flabbergasted at the treatment afforded
the legitimately elected President. I
have no understanding of what or why Trump has no chance to do anything, he is
in worse shape than a lame duck anything.
If it’s something he is trying to introduce or bring about such a hullabaloo
is raised it’s easier to give it up and move on than try to enact it. That should be an embarrassment to every
American alive. Right, wrong or
indifferent Trump can’t be in left field on everything and he is the PRESIDENT.
A move is underfoot to pass a new tax bill
but…….the reaction against it is being led by the same group of miscreants that
are against anything he proposes. Is
this tax bill right? Is it wrong? One thing for sure, someone’s not going to be
happy whatever the outcome.
As referenced before, it’s split along
I have a question for every elected
official in our illustrious government regardless of party affiliation. Every time I hear a Republican speak on our
economy, taxes, budgets, etc. I hear them say they are against deficits. Every time I hear a Democrat speak on our
economy, taxes, budgets, etc. I hear them say they are against deficits. What are our elected bodies comprised
of? With the exception of one person,
they are made up of Republicans and Democrats.
How can we, with our elected officials on all sides being against it,
have deficits? Where do the lies come
in? Where do the lies stop? That’s an easy question, they stop with the
voter and by voter I mean someone who’s informed, not the typical uninformed
mass that go to the polls to cast their ballot.
You all have seen the uninformed person; they’re the one that shows up
with a toothpick in the corner of their mouth saying “who we got to vote for
today?” Either that or someone that
shows up and says “Oh, I’ve got to vote for so-and-so, I used to work next to his
daddy and he was a good man.” We’ve also
got the ever present noddle that says something to the effect of, “he’s my
neighbor, I’ve got to vote for him.”
With an attitude like that we can only hope their neighbor is not Al
Capone or some such person.
People, wake up. Don’t look around and ask what’s wrong with
America, look in the mirror and ask that question. If you don’t like the answer, do something to
Winston Churchill once said “You have enemies? Good. That means
you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.” Much as stated in a popular song “you’ve
got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything” it’s your turn.
One thing I find most distasteful about
the most recent election is one I don’t think the good citizens of Alabama have
any idea or given any thought to but rest assured, the powers to be saw their
way to control an election and took it.
The big money people of Washington bought this election.
Had I not just underwent five years of
hell by being falsely accused of something and finally having the truth come
out I might well have been susceptible to jump on the bandwagon of “Oh those
poor women.” I am
not stepping out to defend Roy Moore in any matter but I do want to remind
everyone (although it is a blatant lie) everyone is to be considered innocent until
I gave 28 years of my life defending and
fighting for this country in an attempt to keep it the land of the free and the
home of the brave but unfortunately that is not the way it truly works out,
something else our forefathers left us which no longer applies.
I sincerely hope Judge Roy Moore is not
guilty of the accusations against him and is able to satisfy that to the
public. If not, then I hope he faces the
appropriate punishment for any transgressions.
sincerely hope Doug Jones becomes the best Congressman from the state of
Alabama and represents us well.
Perhaps it was just the down-right dirtiness
of this election that has put doubt in my mind about Jones but the group
identified as Highway 31 that fell in behind him and ran all those abhorrent
advertisements of half-truths, outright lies and innuendoes and him setting in
his tall chair acting as if he was above the fray only indicated to me that he
approved of them. Doug, you can drop
that self-righteous attitude now, the elections over.
I guess the recipe is complete now and, if
it’s not one we can live with, and if we can find those aforementioned “informed”
voters, it can be changed next election cycle.
CHANGE THE NORM
PEOPLE, BECOME AN INFORMED VOTER AND VOTE FOR THE RIGHT REASONS.
