The Democratic Iowa Caucus appears to have had a lot of confusion as well as a disappointing turn out. Folks, too much is at stake! Trump and the Republicans in Washington are frankly scary.
The national deficit is worsening dramatically.
Russia is not being held accountable for its ongoing cyber assaults on our country and other nations.
Trump interfered with the Mueller Investigation as well as the Impeachment Inquiry and Trial. If a Democratic President did this, I bet the Republicans would have decisively impeached and convicted them.
The Trump Administration abandoned our Kurdish allies, a move which greatly enhanced Russia’s power in the region and ensured that nations around the world will no longer trust the United States like they once did. This latter state of affairs is exacerbated by the way Trump insults, undermines, and injures our long term allies.
Trump’s actions with regards to Iran has increased the likelihood that that nation will develop nuclear weapons. If Iran does, Saudi Arabia will follow suit since they are adversaries. Then two extremist governments will be nuclear powers. The risk of a terror organization getting a nuclear device will go up. And make no mistake: if a terror group obtains one, they will use it.
Donald Trump lies on a scale we haven’t seen in a modern president and then viciously assaults the legitimate free press when they rightly call him out on it. The free press, which Trump clearly disrespects and does not like, is a vital component to American Democracy. Trump’s attacking such an important part of our freedom as “fake” is exceedingly dangerous and frighteningly reminiscent of authoritarian rulers around the world and throughout history.
The Republicans in Congress have shown themselves to be pathetically and dangerously weak enablers of Donald Trump and his terrible behavior. They won’t hold him accountable when they clearly should and have failed their oaths of office by refusing to subpoena witnesses and documents in the Impeachment Proceedings. If a jury in any other trial behaved as the Senate Republicans have, a mistrial would have been declared.
Trump and the Republicans are desperately trying to pack the Supreme Court with hard core conservatives who could jeopardize the rights of millions of Americans. LGBTQ rights in particular could be in serious danger if Ruth Bader Ginsberg is replaced by an extremist social conservative.
Clearly, the upcoming election is one of the most important events in US history.
Too much is at stake to stay out of it.
So, get involved!
Speak up! Register to vote!
Remember, particularly in the Presidential election, we must unite behind whoever wins the Democratic Presidential nomination. Voting for a 3rd party candidate is helping Donald Trump.
So whoever the Democratic Presidential candidate turns out to be, suck it up and vote for them!
Too much is at stake not to!
And by the way, I’m an Independent.
