Now we finally know.
We know that the Republican Party after all does have a platform to stand on, does have a plan for after November 8.
They will do as they have said they would do all along:
they want to cut, severely cut benefits of Social Security and Medicare.
Do you doubt that?
They said they would declaw Roe v Wade and they have.
Clarence Thomas, the most corrupt Supreme. Court “Justice” in our history has said that he can do whatever he wants to do because Sup-reme Court justices are above the law. So he refuses to recuse himself in current cases in violation of a Federal Laq that requires his self recusal.
Forget about any help from the Supreme Court. Our salvation relies on our actions.
SEVERAL REPUBLICANS HAVE ANNOUNCED THEIR PLANS TO GET THEIR WAY: SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT UNTIL THE RESTW OF US GIVE IN TO. THEIR EXTORTION AINED AT KILLING SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE.
REMEMBER THIS ABOVE ALL
THEY REVERSED ROE V WADE and that stupidity has unleased millions of angry women who will vote. Democratic. They mean what they say.
NOW: they will shut down the government to get severe cuts in Social Security and Medicare. Who’s. Going to get gored with this? Firs everyone because they are planning to forfeit on the national debt: that ruins the economy for all of us except their billionaire puppet masters and their frantically angry and desperate leaders who have wanted and tried since the 1950s to kill all entitlement social programs.
SO YOUNG PEOPLE GET SHAFTED BECAUSE THE ECONOMY. ON WHCH THEY COUNT FOR CAREERS AND SURIVIVAL, WILL NOT BE THERE.
SO SENIORS GET IT BETWEEN THE EYES WHEN THEIR SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE DISAPPEAR AND SUDDENLY, OVERNIGHT, THE MEDICINES ON. WHICH THEIR LIVES (MINE TOO I AM 81) RELY, WILL NOT BE COTROLLED. INSTEAD THEY WILL BECOME COMMODITIES WITH PRICES DRIVEN UP BY BIDDING WARS AND RESEARCH FINALLY TOTALLY SHIFTED FROM CURE TO MAINTENANCE WHILE STILL SICK.
BOTTOM LINE: PRICES ARE GOING TO INCREASE TO WHERE NOBODY BUT THE RICH REPUBLICANS-CAN AFFORD THEM. EVERONE ELSE GETS SICKER.
SO THER PLANS, NOW ANNOUNCED BY SEVERAL OF THEIR MEMBERS, WILL HURT: THE YOUNG AND THE OLD AND, TO AN INSIGNIFICANTLY MINOR EXTENT LESS, ALL IN BETWEEN.
IN OTHER WORDS IF YOU ARE READING THIS: YOU ARE THE ONE THAT THEIR VICIOUS FASCISM WILL TAKE DOWN..
Ger registered to vote and vote on November 8 for Democrats if you care about the survival of the worlds most powerful and long lasting experiment in multicultlual self government..
If they have been repeating it for some time, not matter how much it will cost you and me, they mean it. If given the excuse to act on it, they will.
A word, to the wise, is sufficient.
Your only weapon with which to fight back is your vote. And the evidence is clear: they will continue to fund Secretaries of State across the US who believe the BIg Lie or at least use it to get to power. Use your power, vote: it may be your last chance to
Remember Roe v Wade,: do you want to pay the price of their desperation and anger? Would you buy a used car from any of their brood? No? Well then why are you even thinking of voting for them or abstaining?If you want to survive if you do not want to be sick, be hungry, watch Putin begin to take back control of Ukraine as US help is withdrawn, vote for Democrats because we are the only other act in town.
Join millions who take this very very seriously. Act. Now Register.Vote. And Vote Democrats. That’s the only way we will survive this.
The Price of the Gift
November 3, 2022: 5 days to the most important election and vote since 1789
There is a dearth of top stage alarm in this dull land.
The news outlets still use the terminology of a land where the two parties were at odds about the how’s of political action — but toweards the same goal: that government of, by and for the people would not perish from the face of the earth and that we at least worked hard to insure that and build a society in which all are created equal and all have the same inviolable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
I have been tall-standing and ramrod straight marchingly proud to have been the heir of that in my life.
Now at age 81, the bill for that sweet precious social jewel has been presented. That jewel is immeasurably valuable and I ask the God of my understanding to bless these little essays and lead me to any other payments which divine wisdom sees as my duty of obedience. I ask for strength to take those steps while proclaiming gratitude for the miraculous gifting that has been mine but quite possibly not all that well used,
. My dad was a Republican who thought FDR one of the greatest on earth–he and Churchill. Senators stayed in DC, in breaks went to dinners with friends –yes FRIENDS–from the other side of the aisle. Republican Dads could openly praise FDR and not get nocturnal terror visits from mislead and misinformed people seeking to sow hatred and suspicion. The parties then were hotly at odds with each other about a lot and tempers flared, passions erupted–and then they played golf together.
It is time to wake up!
We were lambasted with boring gimme more dollars ads, with attempts to scare us all into emptying our accounts into their campaigns –to get more people to empty their accounts. That and heated name calling–a cacaphony of same old same old on both sides.
But with a colossal difference on the right.
They are all coached to make it look just like any of the good old midterms, but their real agenda is to win enough to control the House and Senate — and then never give it up.
Maybe you have not read that the Nazis never earned a majority of the Bundestag seats. They could not have cared less. Why? Because with Hitler as chancellor and then when Hindenburg died, as Führer (a really common German word meaning Leader–not invented by the Nazis), they had all the reins of power in their hands.
And their agenda was to eliminate movement towards democracy because they knew, KNEW, that their country could not retrieve its destiny as a great world power unless they did it via Dictatorship.
Just change the previous two paragraphs: instead of Hindenburg dying, we have impeachment and a Senate trial–and Joe Biden and his administration, who have done more in their first two years than any other President in US history, are themselves history — and likely even prisoners or even worse.
Then they will have all the power and no organized, armed, powerful opposition. And they will make sure none develops: recall that many FBI agents did not want to intervene on January 6th.
Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. With Donald Trump back in office, we will have a man in total power who needs no time to become absolutely corrupted. He already is.
So just how long do you think it will take him and the House Fascists, the Senate cowards and two faced traitors, to start to get rid of the leaders of the Democrat Party? More than a day?
And all the talk about how we will fight back: utter nonsense.
Just how up and at ’em did we feel when it was clear that the Pandemic had us surrounded and there were no vaccinations? And did Trump’s incompetence and callous disregard for science and human suffering get the people out and on the streets? The term that came to label the emotional status of all of us was not leapin’ with self righteous indignation, no: the term was languishing. That s what we will feel and in good measure that will be driven by shame and soul withering embarrassment. Ask men and women who have served time what happens to their emotions and thinking when the walls finally close in on them.
And read the history of what happened to the German population’s get up and go as the Nazis took away all aspects of liberty, as the heirs of Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, Einstein (he was reallySwiss), Goethe, Schiller, Thomas Mann, Alexander von Humboldt, the inventors of Novocaine, the nation of less than half the US population on 1/26th of our land mass but with the #3 or #4 largest economy on earth, and the second most used language for science and technology–as those heirs were subjected to Gleichschaltung (homogenization — being shifted into sameness literally), as they watched neighbors disappear for no apparent cause other than Nazi supporter irritation at them. They languished for the most part.
And so will we.
We will lose:
the right to vote
the right of public assembly unless in parades honoring Trump
affordable healthcare (the Nazis were smart enough to provide that together with subsidized legal assistance, subsidized vacation trips and lodging, and until they began to lose Hitlers war, the best in food and drink from their occupied territories.
the right to read whatever you want
the right to travel wherever you want
the right to have a say in how you are governed – what the18th century real patriots called “the pursuit of happiness”
the right to choose whatever religion and spiritual program you choose–already the more political reactionary right wing evangelicals are calling Trump a god send. Thats what the German church also wound up calling Hitler.
And the people who are on Trump’s train even as I write this just 5 days away from that election of a millennium will NOT see the light, repent, turn on him. Some years ago I attended an Oktoberfest in local park. A couple of Bavarian guys wearing their Lederhosen and able to dance the Schuhplatterle showed up. When they discovered that I spoke German too, they ushered my behind a billboard, opened up their Jägerjacken to show me artifacts that were illegal in the US, Canada, Britain, Germany etc and said that because they had been issued on Hitlers last birthday they were valuable but for me they’d offer a large discount. And they wanted my name and number to be able to invite me to a clandestine celebration of Hitler’s birthday . I made excuses and left them. The fanaticism will persist once it has been activated. It will never run away.
I mean: just what is it going to take to awaken the resistance here? This election is about whether our experiment in representative, constitutional self governance, and all the rights that centuries of historical battle have consecrated to us will or will not disappear from the face of the earth starting on November 9th.
If we do not take this lethal threat to us dead-seriously, we may have only 6 days left to breath the sweet air of constitutional liberty and walk ramrod straight with pride that we were the ones who said NO, NOT NOW and NEVER to Trump, McCarthy, Lindsay Graham, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity and all the stiff-necked rest who have not wanted, could not handle, do not want = cannot handle and never will want or be able to handle that sweet air invigorating sruggle of liberty for anyone but themselves and their controlling financiers.
Defeat them at the polls and then as a real American Patriot, Sam Adams, said:
It does not take a majority to prevail.. but rather an iragte, tireless minority keen on setting brushfires fo freedom in the minds of men….
Let each citizen remember al the moment he is offering his vote…that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country; …If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating context of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.These are common quotes from Sam Adams found easily in any numb er of books. Thank God!
