Halloween is not my “thing”. I just have never gotten the point of the whole thing. But then I don’t do circuses and clowns either (at least the Barnum and Bailey kind. Cirque du Soleil-yeah, I can get into those.) Scary masks, pranks, and boo-ing people, though? Nyah. I’ll meet you over at the hot chocolate.
But this? Now this scares the life out of me. Over the span of 40 years, these people have carefully crafted a means of taking over our hearts and minds to the point where a large portion of our VOTING POPULATION BELIEVES THEIR LIES.
However, and this is big, they are still a MINORITY of the people registered to vote. Not kidding.
Here’s the catch:
Most of the population DOES NOT VOTE AT ALL.
Of the ones who are registered to vote, MOST WILL SIT ON THEIR ASSES AT HOME. THEY WILL DO NOTHING.
If, and it is a very big IF, we can get all of the registered Democrats to go vote, WE WOULD WIN IN A LANDSLIDE.
Even better? Getting the entire nation to register to vote. Studies have shown that if that happened, the Democrats would run the entire country and we wouldn’t even have a national debt. But that’s, I’m sorry to say, only a dream you wish you didn’t have to wake up from. Oh, well.
The Republican party is now being run openly by white nationalists (fascists). That means they will institute misogynistic policies (e.g. national abortion bans), racist (re-instituting police raids on no-knock warrants, stop-search, arrests for drinking/walking while black, etc), more detainee seizures and deportations, reversal of same sex marriages, lifting protection for trans/LGBTQ people, banning mixed race marriages, and more. At some point, they WILL institute a ban on personal firearm ownership. (Can’t have the populace rise up against your draconian laws with weapons, can you?) And those are just for starters.
Never trust a group that spouts religion as a way of gaining power. They are hyenas in wolves’ skins in sheep’s skins.
Watch for them. You can see them. Some are easier to spot than others. But they are there.
That’s why you need to vote BLUE in this election and in every election for the foreseeable future until we can get rid of these people and what they represent for our country. Help me get to the Georgia Senate to help work on it there. It won’t be easy, but I have never shied away from hard. Let’s keep Georgia strong, moving forward, and get more jobs, affordable housing for workers and their families, better public schools, and better healthcare options. We can do this-but you have to vote blue!
