I am a half-glass-full kind of person and I don’t have a lot of faith in American voters. They have short memories. They don’t pay a lot of attention. They’re ignorant on most matters. And many are just stupid. Also, Democrats suck at getting out the vote. You need a giant visual villain like Donald Trump to get them to the polls to create a blue wave like the one in 2018 which gave Democrats the House and many state legislatures. Unfortunately, Republicans are great at getting out their base. And, they do it with lies.
There is no massive election fraud. Critical Race Theory is not being taught in schools. Public school teachers are not inflicting a gay agenda upon your children. Parents are not being persecuted or denied rights. The FBI isn’t politicized and coming down on Republicans unfairly. Conservatives are not being persecuted or having their freedom of speech taken away anywhere in this nation. Trans people are not overtaking women’s sports. There is no Great Replacement Theory or New World Order. Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election. The Earth is not flat. Vaccines work.
As for the problems that are real… High gas prices are an international issue and they weren’t created by Joe Biden and the Democratic Party. Same for inflation. This nation doesn’t have open borders. Crime is a problem but Republicans support Donald Trump’s criminal behavior and gaslight attempted murder when a Democrat is violently attacked. In fact, they think it’s hilarious that a domestic terrorist, instigated by their years of demonization, attacked the 82-year-old husband of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Have you seen Donald Trump Jr’s meme on it? Did you see his second meme on it?
As for saving democracy, Republicans know it’s in danger because they’re the ones that put it in danger. It’s their agenda. They supported an insurrection. They supported giving the presidency to the loser. Many tried to make the presidency of the United States of America a dictatorship. They support election lies. They support delegitimizing elections. They want you to doubt the outcomes of elections but only when they lose. They’re changing election laws making it harder for minorities to vote because it’s easier to win elections if you stop non-white people from voting than it is to campaign honestly on the issues. Also, it’s hard to win elections honestly if your agenda is racism and to make billionaire assholes richer.
The Republicans will probably win big this Tuesday, but I have faint hope we can cut them off at the pass. But I’m afraid lies will defeat honesty and my country is in danger.
Republicans are a national security threat and most voters either don’t know it or don’t care. Worse yet, a lot of them do know it and it’s what they want.
Vote Tuesday. Vote Democratic. Vote against the goons. They’re coming to destroy our nation.
