Democrats Are Not Marxists - And Response

Friday, October 16, 2020

First, Republicans and Democrats are not enemies, quit trying to portray them as such. They were elected by the American people to work to solve problems, make laws and to protect our Constitution.

The Supreme Court should not be based on party affiliation but to very well-learned and versed in the law individuals - those who base their judgments fairly on the Constitution and the law of the land and not personal interests. In my opinion Amy Coney Barrett would make a good justice because I believe she is unbiased and extremely intelligent. But again so many people are outraged over Diane Feinstein hugging Lindsey Graham, what's up with that?

I read Roy Exum's article this morning about the seven predictions from a man he said he never heard of or never read any of this individual's articles. But since it absolutely agreed with Mr. Exum's political affiliation then he was all for it. So much for world-renown authors, and accredited social pundits' opinions. Let's say Trump wins, I promise you it won't be a landslide victory and I imagine it the other way.

Democrats are not Marxists, Mr. Exum and how dare you imply this. You are so scared that a Democrat might win again that you will try your best to defame them with silly accusations. There is middle ground for both parties, but it has become so difficult to compromise with each other because of this silly, juvenile, narcissist president we now have - a TV reality show host who didn't even believe he would win but wanted the publicity. He is not a person who has represented anyone before in an elected office, who lives for praise and lies more than any human being that I have ever known.

When asked last night on the town hall on NBC if he believed in QAnon he said he didn't, but praised them in the past for liking him and he has no problem retweeting their tweeter posts. When Savannah Guthrie asked him why he retweeted the post that Biden had Seal Team six members killed and they shot a look alike Bin Laden person he just said "well it's just a retweet" and he wants people to form their own opinion.

The Hunter Biden story was cleared of any wrong doing by two Republican committees but he still pushes it. William Barr was chosen to be his AG and not his personal lawyer. Trump does not own the Department of Justice and to demand investigations into things 4-5 years ago is ridiculous. Neither does he own the FBI so he can tell the Michigan Governor it's because his FBI saved her life. And the silly, dumb comment that 85 percent of people who wear masks catch Covid-19 is not what the CDC said in any way shape or form. When Savannah Guthrie challenged him on it he said Dr. Atlas agrees with him. She informed him that he was not an infectious disease expert but a regular doctor. He blasts Dr. Fauci and we hardly hear from Dr. Birx anymore. The U.S. is approaching eight million cases and Trump says we are rounding the curve. Please. We are four percent of the world's population with 20 percent of the deaths. Republican Senator Ben Sasse has spoken out finally about what the rest of the GOP senators think of Trump but afraid to mention. If you don't believe me then look it up. He has no appreciation for this ego-driven president. Biden explains everything he wants to do as president, Trump will not even mention his plans for the next four years except for saying he has a tremendous, better than anyone health plan but doesn't know the first thing on what it entails and he mentions constantly it will be available every two weeks. Biden says he will answer the question of court packing before the election. Trump still will not say he commits to a peaceful transfer of power.

One more time let me say, we are not two different worlds as far as politics goes but we are a huge family of approximately 350 million citizens and most of us are older and have lived through both Democratic and Republican presidents before and we are no worse for wear between both parties and the Roe vs Wade ruling still stands. I still get along great regardless of who the prominent party is. I just want a president who is respectable and thoughtful with the demeanor the most powerful man in the world should possess. If Trump wins by a landslide, then I will apologize to Mr. Exum and if he doesn't then he should understand he can't substantiate a horrible person being the leader of the free world just because of the party he represents.
