Well, as complex and numerous as the issues are that we face in the US today, you may be in a quandary about who to vote for in November. So many things to consider, so many choices, so much noise. Medical dilemmas, foreign policy issues, economic issues, social issues. So much noise!
Here are two questions that may simplify this particular election for you.
Do you like watching mobs seize neighborhoods, vandalize and loot stores, destroy people’s business dreams, burn buildings, blind federal agents, throw Molotov cocktails? Or like watching young children gunned down in the street in their own neighborhood? Is that the America you want to live in going forward?
If no, go on to the next question.
Did your mayor, city council members, governor, state senators and representatives, US Congressperson and Senators, and Presidential candidate stand up and openly decry the lawlessness? Or have they remained silent, in tacit agreement with the anarchy?
Assuming you understand that what you reward you get more of, you only need to decide what kind of world you want. If you reward lawlessness, you get more lawlessness. If you reward anarchy, you get more anarchy.
So, if you answered no to #1 and #2, then your vote is simple. Any politician who has failed to stand up and OPENLY decry the criminality–no matter the ostensible justification–wants that world to continue. Your government leaders have the power to stop it and restore order. If they did not do so, and if you reward them with re-election or election, you will have more of what invades your household daily on the news. Only soon, this traveling show will show up in your pristine, tranquil neighborhoods.
As for me, I will not vote for ANY politician who did not take a stand against chaos and anarchy. If they encouraged the mayhem, they are gone. If they stood silent while their constituents suffered, they deserve to be unelected.
All the rest is just blabber and political pandering. It can all be debated post election. Unless of course the American people decide they want to live in the world that is being created now by violent anarchists. In that world, nothing will be debated. Censorship and violent extortion will silence all dissenting voices. And none of these other important issues that you are trying to decide on will be solved. It is impossible to solve America’s problems while America burns, and anarchists force you into submission.
The choice is yours. No matter your party, this one is real simple.
