Tyranny Anywhere Threatens Freedom Everywhere

Beau of the Fifth Column’s common sense video, above, will amply clarify America’s Do or Die moment; i.e., distinguish everything that’s at stake this 2022 election cycle. If your time is limited, prioritize viewing it over reading my own commentary, below…

`

Clearly, early voting is still ongoing all across America. What isn’t so clear is IF our electorate has been actually seeing the Big Picture.

That’s because, typically, we do vote our own pocketbooks and, needless to say, there hasn’t been much to be happy about. As is true with most of my average American compatriots, inflation has been hemorrhaging my own limited assets.

Nonetheless… I will NEITHER be blaming Democrats for a mucked up economic mess created and exacerbated by corporate price gouging, broken supply chain issues and ignoranus (<– not a typo) Vladimir Putin’s Ukraine war; NOR will I be punishing said Democrats by voting in MAGA Republicans whose ONE AND ONLY solution to economic woes is heaping on even more economic woes; typically by lavishing utterly undeserved tax breaks upon the wealthiest of the wealthy.

Need I even remind… The upward redistribution of wealth has never improved the lives of commoners (I among them).

Worse yet, there’s a dangerous and disastrous flip side to these MAGA maggots’ greed; namely, their aiding and abetting Donald J. Trump’s ongoing conspiracy; i.e., his plot to usurp power (come January 20, 2025), cling to it till his last day on Earth and, in turn, forever burn down Democracy.

Flipping off / filling in the particulars… This election year, there are nearly 300 candidates, nationwide, who’ve been totally suckered into Donald J. Trump “2020 Election Fraud” Big Lie. IF (more like WHEN) empowered (especially the state level Secretaries of State), they will be hellbent on mucking up all future elections and, as such, they’ll easily devolve America into a Fascist Dictatorship. And in saying “mucking up”, I mean they’ll be disenfranchising voters by shredding their legitimately cast ballots.

The obvious solution is for every true American to deny them that power; to non-violently trump Trump as well as every last one of his Fascistic Freaks / MAGA Minions.

We MUST preserve, protect and defend American FREEDOM by voting in Democrats up and down the entire ballot. I’ll be HAND DELIVERING my own, completed absentee ballot to my local election officials before 8 p.m. tomorrow / Election Day.

I do fully understand that any plan to hire / rehire Democrats is, at best, an imperfect solution because, far too oft, they lack the spine to do the work we send them to DC to do; and even if they do the work, they’re poor at messaging their accomplishments to their constituents.

However, I also recognize that when confronted by our two party ONLY system, that necessitates our always voting for the lesser of two evils.

And, to be clear here, WTF could be more evil than Trump and his yes-men / henchmen insurrectionists?

Stated in a more practical vein… We the People will have a far better chance of on-the-job training Democrats to (eventually) see things more clearly (act more progressively and courageously) THAN attempting to oust autocratic MAGA Republicans; renown for whipping their collective middle finger at our Founding Fathers’ precepts of Democracy; to e.g. just one, their Constitutionally established, orderly. peaceful transition of power.

Beyond that… Every qualified, clear thinking voter must cast their ballot prior to the polls closing tomorrow evening, November 8th. America’s very survival does hang in the balance…

Watchfully Waiting

PREFACE: While what follows is far from a comprehensive appraisal, I am going on the premise that even an imperfect assessment, today, is still infinitely preferable to awaiting tomorrow’s more polished work. That said, here goes…

`

In the highly unlikely possibility that one or two of you might be wondering about my recent disappearance from this platform, it’s all been with good reason.

You see, I’ve been laying low while contemplating the feasibility of my WP future. After all, the wisdom of continuing to blog from the liberal / progressive point of view is highly questionable when, ideologically speaking, the road “ahead” foreshadows an increasingly insufferable, apparently irreparable, chronically chaotic. hardcore right wing dystopia.

`

While I still harbor the belief that the vast majority of humanity is honorable, within our (allegedly) representative government nations, does majority rule even rule anymore?

`

In far too many instances, inveterate propaganda ministers have been whipping good people into exhaustion, apathy, silence and submission; into no questions asked / permitted acceptance of wretched, fetid (alleged) leadership.

And, re such stench, once folks have been conditioned into nose blindness, that makes the long overdue, desperately needed, ballot box deodorization process difficult, if not IMPOSSIBLE (especially when / where the odious powers-that-be have also resorted to suppression of fair, free elections).

How IMPOSSIBLE?

Well, with ever increasing frequency, (especially Stateside,) unscrupulous, arrogant, snot-nosed, incumbents and wannabes (whom the voters have justifiably denied the reins of power), have been throwing temper (Trumper) tantrums; so severe that they’ll make unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud and NEVER accept their undeniable ballot box defeats.

At that juncture, we can expect matters to deteriorate rapidly and rabidly. I’m sure I needn’t remind anyone of how turncoat Donald J. Trump and his private army of domestic terrorists attempted their brazen, grotesque, deadly, destructive, January 6th coup d’état at the U.S. Capitol.

Since such subversives have been left unchecked by Democrats, history is likely to repeat itself. As such, once the November 2022 ballots get tallied, any victors (who do not identify as MAGA) can expect to be wrongfully challenged and, in the end / THE END, even wind up flat-out denied their legitimately earned political power. In other words…

`

Avarice, ignorance and decadence driven MAGA minority rule will rule; where the hard work of saving our human family / our troubled world will NEVER get done.

`

While matters do appear glum, I’ll remind all American ballot casters (of good character) to keep the good thought that appearances can be deceiving. And more to the point…

`

Voter suppression can be overcome by monumental voter turnout. En masse, our cast ballots can preserve, protect and defend our Founding Fathers’ vision for us; our posterity.

`

And so, here I am; anxiously, watchfully waiting the outcome of the November 8th midterm elections; knowing fully well that we’re now confronted by this do or die moment in human history.

IF maniacal and moronic MAGA Republicans wind up taking out both the U.S. House and Senate, we might soon be waving good-bye to both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris; if not impeached and ousted next year, they’ll both become lame ducks for the next two years.

In essence (and at the risk of repeating myself)…

`

Avarice, ignorance and decadence driven MAGA minority rule will rule; where the hard work of saving our human family / our troubled world will NEVER get done.

`

Beyond that? Well, how can anyone ever expect to survive any of THAT, let alone attempt to blog about it?

Personally, I’d never want to preside, in real time, over the demise of humanity / our planet. That’d be damn near impossible with my tears both blurring my vision and streaming downward to short-circuit my device’s keyboard.

Graciously Concede OR Shut The F Up!

`

PROBLEM: The M.O. of many a present day political candidate (particularly of the peculiar MAGA Republican variety), is to go into a preemptive, Trumper / Temper Tantrum Mode. Yep, well in advance of each Election Day (with nary a ballot even cast and counted), these malcontents, with increasing frequency, have been routinely insisting that any outcome, where they do not get more votes than their opponents, will be tantamount to “incontrovertible proof” of massive, widespread voter fraud.

  • Bad Enough, these tyrants, in essence, are pre-claiming victory… no… strike that… are attempting fascistic power grabs.
  • Worse Yet, some of the nuttiest sore losers are even demanding that they, NOT their victorious opponents, MUST be instantly sworn into office.
  • Worst of All, they and their hardcore supporters are little more than heavily armed, itchy trigger fingered gun nuts bleating out their utterly stupid Battle Cry:

“If BALLOTS don’t do the trick BULLETS will.”

Gun Nut Trumpies • starting c2015
`

My gawd, the…

  • Inanity and Insanity!
  • Haughtiness and Hostility!
  • Arrogance and Aggression!

All of these freaks’ wasted time and energy causes most sane people to wonder if America is even salvageable anymore?

If we’re forced to co-exist with outlaw candidates, who flat-out refuse to accept they lost, what will we be forced to do next? Outlaw Election Days? If so, what the hell would happen when two or more candidates vie for the same seat? WTF would determine the victor?

  • Shooting Craps?
  • Pissing Contests?
  • Rounds of Musical Chairs?
  • Playing Rock-Paper-Scissors?
  • Wild West Shootouts at the OK Corral?

America’s sicko gun nuts would likely favor that final, bullet pointed “solution”.

What more can we expect when sore loser scoundrels become so utterly consumed by their narcissism they cannot even accept the voters’ actual message to them…

“YOU LOST BECAUSE YOU, YOUR REGRESSIVE RHETORIC AND BUTT UGLY UN-AMERICAN ULTERIOR MOTIVES ABSOLUTELY SUCK! NOW SCRAM!”

PO’d, Critical Thinking, Give-a-Damn, True Americans
`

Considering how, even our high decibel voiced sentiments would still fall upon deaf ears, what’s long overdue is getting everything in writing.

SOLUTION: What I’m proposing is the no-nonsense, Endgame Election Law of 2022 (EEL-22); specifically designed to “electroshock” all combative candidates back to reality and civility; to school these arch conservative cultists, who haven’t a clue, as to what true American Democracy is all about.

Keep in mind that what we’re about to review is akin to those ubiquitous Terms of Service agreements; but only in a rough draft mode; also in dire need of a meticulous review by a team of Founding Fathers magnitude, Constitutional lawyers. Nonetheless, check out what I’ve titled…

The Terms of Candidacy Agreement

I, the undersigned Office Seeker, agree that IF the counted (and where applicable recounted) ballots indicate my opponent won; IF I can furnish no tangible, trustworthy evidence of widespread voter irregularities and/or fraud, I am duty bound to graciously concede OR, in lieu of that, simply shut the F up! Seeing how my violation of these terms can only undermine Democracy, IF I wind up a sore loser who still, wrongfully, publicly insists I won, I will be charged with a felony. There will be additional felony counts, too, IF any of my protestations result in acts of violence, and/or personal injury and/or the death of others and/or property destruction and/or culminate in any attempted coup(s). Upon the establishment of probable cause, an arrest warrant, in my name, will be promptly issued and, during my arraignment, my speedy jury trial’s court date will be set. Each guilty verdict will result in fine(s) and my incarceration (or institutionalization IF I’m declared non compos mentis); all monetary and temporal quantities to be determined by the sentencing judge.

PROBLEMATIC SOLUTION? What bothers me most, with this post, is the very fact that America would even need such a Terms of Candidacy Agreement, to begin with. That there are individuals, who call themselves Americans, YET, fight for Fascism, NOT, Freedom horrifies me all the way down to my DNA. Why are these sore loser spooks so easily driven by such a ferocious compulsion to kill the very spirit of Free and Fair Elections? More to the point…

Following the 2020 elections, why, oh why, couldn’t the spooky, sore loser Donald J. Trump, have graciously conceded to the actual victor, Joe Biden, OR, in lieu of that, simply shut the F up!

So… How Would the Remainees React?

`

Suffice to say, ever since has-been Trump took his downward escalator ride, he has been doing his damnedest to take down America / the entire world. Along the way, he has been pandering, primarily, to his absolutely irrational and uncivil voter base; i.e., winning them over to his side simply by exploiting and validating their hopeless ignorance and hardcore bigotry.

In all likelihood, his staunch supporters (mindless cultists, Borg drones, etc.), obsess, daily / hourly over how best to suck up to their Fascist Daddy. What more could anyone expect from those who’ve succumbed to no questions asked / allowed subservience. In extreme cases, some have even claimed they’d die on his behalf. And statistics don’t lie, seeing how…

“On Tuesday, the last full day of Donald Trump’s presidency, the [Covid-19] death toll reached 400,000 — a once-unthinkable number. More than 100,000 Americans have perished in the pandemic in just the past five weeks.”

National Public Radio News • Reported by Will Stone • January 19, 2021 [read more here]

Granted, Coronavirus deaths have spanned all ideologies, however a disproportionate chunk of the fatalities did prove to be Daddy Donny’s very own (and owned) anti-masker, infantile whiners.

Let’s now delve deeper into the power of Trump’s unappetizing words (which make normal people want to puke, YET, get Trumper drones salivating)…

“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,”

Donald J. Trump • Sioux Center, Iowa • 23 January 2016 [read more here]
`

Keeping that in mind, let’s run down what is, THANK GOD, (so far), ONLY a thought experiment.

Suppose, in the not too distant future, Trump convenes one of his train wreck rallies where (in the midst of one of his lose-his-train-of-thought, rambling, utterly worthless, screechy speeches) he abruptly halts and barks out the command, “ATTACK!”

At that point, his armed to the teeth goon squad storms into the arena; roughs up, rounds up and marches out fifty percent of the attendees. When his speech resumes, DJT simply informs the remainees that, come sundown (local time), he will order his detainees’ mass execution.

So… How Would the Remainees React?

Sans even two critical thinking brain cells to rub together (and nary a tear shed for their detained, soon to be needlessly slaughtered / dead families and friends), each of his drones would have no choice but to conclude, “Oh well… he must’ve had a pretty damned good reason!” At that point each of them would, FIRST, cut Trump a give-till-it-hurts campaign contribution check and, NEXT, on cue, commence to bleating out…

“USA!… USA! … USA! … USA! … USA! … USA!…” (translation)
“Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! …”

Trumper Nazi Drones • c2015 – 22 (and beyond)

Ironic, indeed, seeing how mindless absolutism has absolutely nothing in common with what the genuine United States of America stands for.
