THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION: FOR AND AGAINST

This is about employing common sense.  

In the presidential race, many feel we do not have great options. But we must still vote, and … like in many other elections…we often end up voting against someone rather than for someone. In other words, many voters are guided by deciding who we think would be least harmful to our nation.

When viewing the election in such terms, it clearly tells me how important it is to re-elect Donald Trump, and why.  I am not his biggest fan. I’m one of those who cringe when he blurts out some of his ego-maniacal comments and other assorted barbs that make me shake my head. But all things considered, America will still be far better off by keeping the country in a democracy mode with a capitalistic government. Preserving those basic tenets are far more important than being guided by personalities.

The hard left in America is rising to the occasion.  Our nation is inching its way to the slippery slope where Socialism is not just an idea, it’s a reality which will come to bear, affecting our kids and their kids for generations to come. Consider also, there is another step to consider in that process.  Hard-core socialists have a mission to see America fall down that slope into a full-blown communist state. This is not a theory. It’s close to a reality if radical  Democrats like Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, AOC and George Soros have their way.

We all remember Castro, and the Cuban revolution. Many of us were still living in S. Florida then. Fidel fought in the jungles as a die-hard socialist, so he claimed. But it was a deception. It wasn’t until Fidel completely controlled the new government and admitted (surprise) his goals were rooted in communism. 

I spoke to many struggling Cubans back then (being a young Dade police officer). Cuba lost multi-thousands of innocent citizens to “MIA” (missing in action)  status, while thousands more escaped the island bringing with them the clothes on their backs, and nothing else. Sixty years hence, people are still driving pre-1960 jalopies and people own nothing, unless provided by the state.  I remember one Cuban guy selling bananas on a street corner, I asked about his journey from Cuba to the USA.  He said he had been a bank vice president, and his family was living with two other families in one apartment. I remember him passionately telling me, “No welfare. We no take welfare”

Black Lives Matter is a nice cliche’ .. we all want to see equality among all citizens. However, if you look past the smokescreen, Black Lives Matter is co-founded by proud Marxists named, Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza. Check it out. They are an established, unapologetic communist organization, portraying themselves as guardians of black people. And, by the way, very involved in much of the violence and looting in the last seven months.

Communism is a reality, not a theory. It is a hard-cold fact. They’ve been warning us since the 1950s they intend to divide and conquer the west. And, they are inching closer.  Communism is powerful. It is well-funded. It is aiming toward the grand prize. You and me. 

Riots and desperation are everywhere throughout our country like never before.  It is no accident. The movement is organized and paid for via haters of America, behind the scenes.

So let’s vote smart.

If communism comes to the U.S., there will be no turning back. So when we vote, we must not only be passionate, we must be intelligent and well informed or else our grandkids may one day be slaves to the government. When we vote, we must remember that it’s not just about a presidency, or a party. It’s about the movement, and the vast array of management systems, domestic and foreign, that comes with the president we elect.

Reminds me of that little girl in the Sci-Fi movie saying “They’rree  Heerrreee!.

In an article, columnist L. Todd Wood, Washington Times, 2018, wrote:

“Yes, this is the goal; it is slowly being propagandized by the corrupt Marxist media. The communists lost the Cold War in an economic and military collapse. Since then, they have sought to re-establish their power by embedding themselves and their ideology in our universities, to corrupt the younger generations, and the media, to control the thought processes of the low information voter.”
