Founding Fathers gathered in that hot stinky
wooden room in Philadelphia that summer of
1776 were risking their lives, their wealth,
and their way of life to dare to have the
courage to meet day after day to
painstakingly draw up the documents to
formally found the American nation. They argued over and tweaked every single
word, having had the vision to realize that
what they were creating was to become the
foundation of an eternal revolution of self
rule, independence, freedom, and the
democratic concept of self-determination.
Most of them were highly educated, well
read, sharp minded men who knew very well
what could go wrong with the nation they
were founding. They were determined to
anticipate every element of potential
disaster and craft a form of government
stable and strong enough to withstand all
attempts at tyranny. They even
anticipated that the vast unwashed
uneducated masses could someday be duped by
a damn dumb fast talking flim flam man
falsely promising peasants paradise. So, at first, they decreed
that the only ones who would have the right
to vote were the wise guardians of the land,
the landowners, people like themselves.
It was undemocratic and unfair. But,
they were right. Yet, over the years
and centuries, fairness prevailed; and the
right to vote entitlement went to every
citizen of every race, women, immigrants,
rich and poor, educated and uneducated.
Until the day came when a fast talking flim
flam man became president and the first
thing he did was to begin to deny the right
to vote to those he didn't like; minorities
of every ilk.
supporting this destroyer of democracy was
founded by the original paragon of equality, a
gay man, who courageously led our nation through
war entered into by enslaver states.
Though martyred by bigotry, he is immortalized
to this day as the bearer of the truth that
every life matters. Today, the inheritors
of that party have besmirched its founding
principles and sundered and soiled its values in
a conspiracy so vast that those betrayed by that
treason no longer know what to believe.
By their hand, truth now has no meaning, down is
up, black is white, and official violence is
virtuous. By their hand, the founding
fathers' checks and balances have been conquered
and vanquished. This past month they
confirmed a drunken scoundrel as a Supreme Court
Justice; thereby resoundingly pounding the final
nail in the coffin of our nation.
By their hand,
police can now presume a man's guilt by the
color of his skin; and execute him because they
say they are afraid. Yes afraid; afraid of
loosing their prestige and
An official army of agents now guard the border
by stealing small screaming children, in the
name of their leader, the flim flam man whom our
nation's founding fathers sought to preclude.
And they are trying very hard to keep their
'permanent majority,' or 'Thousand Year Reich,'
in power. As they know they cannot win in
fair elections, suppressing minority voting is
their highest priority, using gerrymandering,
photo ID and proof of citizenship laws,
harassment of minority voters, purging voter
roles by race and neighborhood, fake official
letters with false voting information, and
sending voters to the wrong location to vote.
Then there is the genuine fake news that they
generate, with outright lies about opposing
candidates; not to mention likely collusion with
enemy nations to enhance their electability.
goes back to the time of the previous presidency when they
refused to even consider a Supreme Court nominee
for an entire year; and then rammed in two
guaranteed partisans of the current
administration. Treason! The voter
suppression goes back decades; and now the
Supreme Court stacking puts the nail in the
coffin of our nation's electoral integrity.
It is not a matter of something that may someday
happen. They were in such a hurry to
confirm this louse so that he could immediately
rule to deny voting rights to Native Americans
in North Dakota in order to ensure a continued
Senate Majority. What? An obscure
new law in North Dakota was designed to void the
voting rights of Native Americans by requiring
voting citizens to have 'a street address' to
verify who they are; some 18,000 very rural
Native Americans there live in places so remote
that they do not have a designated address.
The intent of the law was to specifically deny
their right to vote, as most of them were
registered Democrats. The Democratic
incumbent Senator, there, won her last election
by only 3000 votes. Denying 18,000 North
Dakota Native Americans their right to vote will
ensure her loss in this month's election.
The drunken louse was confirmed, immediately
sworn in, and then ruled with the new right wing
court majority to allow this clear violation of
the Constitution to remain law.
IF you think
your vote doesn't matter, it wont if you don't
vote. This election may be the last chance
to stop the permanent takeover. The next
election after that could be cancelled by their
legislative action; that the stacked court would
not invalidate. Oh, sure, just sit back
and tell me I'm nuts, relax, everything will be
fine; don't worry. Damnit. VOTE!
