The polls say 75% of the citizens think this country is going the wrong direction…..so they voted to CONTINUE to go in the wrong direction?? Seriously?
They voted for MORE inflation, higher gas prices, rationed energy, mandated experimental vaccines, being on the verge of a NUCLEAR WAR!! Five million MORE illegal aliens crossing our border, higher crime, more censorship, more armed FBI raiding people’s homes, letting criminals out with no bail so they can kill their witnesses, stores closing because people just come in and steal, more homelessness, more filth, more poop, more indoctrinating our children, more sterilizing and sexualizing children, biological men competing against biological women in sports, beauty pageants, jobs, etc.
And a media that lies to us every day. So many people have no idea what is truly happening. They actually think January 6th was an insurrection. They think Republicans want to take away their Social Security and Medicare. They think reversing Roe vs Wade meant abortions were banned. They are told Republicans want to take their “Rights” away while Democrats are ACTUALLY taking their “Rights” away. Mandating vaccines is taking your “Rights” away, closing your business is taking your “Rights” away. Closing churches, banning family from dying loved ones bedsides, closing schools, mandating useless masks, telling doctors what treatments they can and can’t use, moratoriums on rent, paying student loans, not enforcing immigration laws, calling illegal aliens “refugees” so they qualify for generous (more generous than Social Security) benefits, putting illegal aliens in hotels while veterans live on the street, banning safe, effective medications…….ALL this is taking your “RIGHTS” AWAY.
The Left now wants to make voting by mail-in ballots a federal law (never mind the CONSTITUTION says that is a State issue), they want to install “ranked voting” (like Alaska) in every blue state and nationwide eventually. If we had an honest, impartial media they would be educating the public on how bad that is. They keep talking about our “democracy” when “ranked voting” is as unDemocratic as it comes. The person with the most votes may not win. Right now in Alaska the candidate in the lead is projected to lose due to this policy.
Few (on either side of the aisle) trust our elections anymore. But rather than implement policies and laws that make our elections more trustworthy, rather than address the honest concerns people have, the Left wants to criminalize questioning the results. Canada IS criminalizing questioning elections. So is Brazil. Here in Arizona (ground zero for Mules stuffing ballot boxes) people were organizing drop box watch groups. But others filed suits saying that would suppress the vote. I say, yes, we want to suppress ILLEGAL votes. Yes, we want to suppress dead people, illegal aliens, and voting more than once. Why would any voter feel intimidated dropping a ballot into a drop box if that’s all they are doing?
Let’s go over reality, something the media SHOULD be doing, NOT ALL people “eligible” to vote REGISTER to vote, and in average ONLY about 60% to 65% of REGISTERED voters actually vote, soooo, sending mail-in ballots to ALL REGISTERED voters (and the Left wants to send them to all “eligible” voters) results in millions of ballots floating around for OTHERS to fill out and send in. In 2005 the Carter/Baker bipartisan voter integrity study found absentee (mail-in) ballots were the biggest risk for fraud and that we should have voter ID (80% of voters agree), but none of this is ever mentioned by the media. All they do is repeat and repeat that Republicans want to suppress minority votes, that voter ID is racist and that EVERY vote (including illegal ones) should be counted.
In the 2020 election ballots they knew were illegal were counted. Why? Observers were prevented from observing even when ordered by courts to allow them to observe. Why? Where was the media on this. As long as we have a biased media, we can’t win. We thought January 6th and Roe vs Wade lies had faded from people’s minds. The polls said people were more concerned with high gas prices and inflation and that abortion and J6 were way down the list of concerns. Apparently not. Certainly, not if you listened to the main stream news.
I am devastated. And I blame the media, and the Republican leadership for this. I blame McConnell, McCarthy and LINDSEY GRAHAM (why did he author a nationwide bill banning abortion after 15 weeks RIGHT before the election)?? He knew it couldn’t get passed but it put the issue in the headlines again. And now they are calling to reelect McConnell and McCarty for Republican leadership AGAIN. Normal people wouldn’t reward the losers.
I don’t know what else to say. I’m completely devastated (but we aren’t burning down cities, are we?) We “domestic terrorists” are sitting in our homes staring into space wondering what happened. Wondering how people could vote against their best interests. Wondering how we’ll survive this. I guess we haven’t felt enough pain.
