WHY GEORGIANS NEED TO VOTE FOR OSSOFF AND WARNOCK

Hello People of Georgia,

There will be a runoff election for both Senate seats in Georgia this coming January 5.

Important dates to remember are:

  • November 18: Earliest day for a registrar to mail an absentee ballot for the general election runoff
  • December 7: Voter registration deadline to vote in the federal runoff election
  • December 14: Advanced in-person or early voting begins for the general election runoff for federal offices
  • January 5, 2021: Federal runoff election day

This election will be crucial because if the 2 democratic candidates win, that will make the number of senators in the US Senate even, 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans. If a vote is tied, the tie will be broken by the Vice President who will be Kamala Harris. What makes this so important is that the Senate under Mitch McConnell has been uncompromising in blocking legislation for the American people passed in the House of Representatives. This happened during the Obama administration and would most likely happen during the Biden administration if McConnell retains control of the Senate. It would allow McConnell to interfere with President Biden’s efforts to curb the COVID epidemic and bring back the economy. McConnell has shown that he is more interested in his political power and the financial interests of his rich oligarch friends including Russian oligarchs tied to the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin than in the well-being of ordinary Americans. President Biden will be faced with the daunting task of cleaning up the mess left behind by Trump and his gang and will need every resource to accomplish this for us Americans. Joe Biden has shown his desire to bring together the American people of all political opinions and work for all of us. But if McConnell and his gang work against the American people that will further polarize America between the dishonest Trumpish Right and the extreme Left. So, people of Georgia, America is depending on you. ELECT JON OSSOFF and REVEREND RAPHAEL WARNOCK TO THE SENATE TO BRING AMERICA TOGETHER, TO DEFEAT COVID, AND TO BRING HONESTY, CIVILITY, AND BALANCE BACK TO THE GOVERNMENT OF AMERICA.

MAZEL TOV, BIDEN AND HARRIS

Mazel Tov (Good Luck) to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. We are seeing a new dawn in America after 4 years of darkness, chaos, dishonesty, premeditated division, corruption, and incompetence. The road ahead will not be easy. Biden will have a big task in cleaning up the mess which Trump will leave behind him. Trump is still planning frivolous laws suits to challenge the election. Congratulations have come in from all over the world, but most Republican senators and congressmen have remained silent. Some have voiced agreement with Trump in his false claims of “election fraud.” But Biden has wisely voiced a desire to find common ground with the Republicans to forge ahead with sanity and progress to benefit all Americans. Joe has the wisdom, experience, empathy, and ability to make it happen at least partially. There will be two re-elections for senators in Georgia in January. If the two Democratic candidates can be added to the Senate, that will make progress easier. As a Californian, I can’t vote in the Georgia election, but I have contributed to the campaigns of the Democratic Senate candidates. However those elections turn out, Joe Biden is the person for the job to bring America back to reality, sanity, empathy, and honesty.

During the year 2020, I have devoted this blog with increasing frequency to American politics because the election has been existential for America. Now that the election is mostly behind us, perhaps the frequency will decrease depending on what happens. I will continue to include comments on American politics in this blog because America is my country. I was born here and have lived here all my life. But I will balance it with a return to the original purpose of this blog, to discuss religion, particularly Judaism, and to discuss topics of interest concerning my fellow Jews all over the world, the 40% who live here in America, the 40% who live in Israel, and the 20% who live everywhere else.

THE ELECTION WILL CULMINATE TOMORROW

America, we have suffered through 4 years of the Trump presidency including Trump’s lies, chaos, kleptocracy, inequity, incompetence, and voter suppression. Trump has used his office to line his pockets with your money. Trump lacks empathy. His decisions are based on whatever will benefit himself personally, not what is good for our country. He has divided America turning us against each other instead of uniting us because in his twisted mind he believes that will benefit him. He has magnified the worst in us and suppressed our best ideals. His foreign policy has bordered on treasonous by following the lead of Vladimir Putin against our fellow democracies and inviting Putin’s neo-KGB to invade America’s political processes through cyber space. Trump has allowed the COVID epidemic to take over America, killing more than 200,000 of us, because of mismanagement fueled by his fear that openly admitting to the pandemic's existence and dealing with it would somehow hurt him politically. During 4 years, Trump has not learned to be a real American president because he does not listen. Presidents usually do not enter the job with past presidential experience, but they learn on the job by listening to competent advice, digesting that advice, and turning it into the best action that they can do to benefit America. Instead, Trump has fired competent advisers when they dared to disagree with any preconceived ideas that pop into Trump's head replacing them with incompetent sycophants who rubber stamp his nonsense.

In stark contrast, we have the opportunity to elect Joe Biden. Joe has 8 years experience as vice president in a very competent administration (which is as close to being president as one gets before actually being president). He has those qualities that we need in a president: honesty, competence, empathy, experience, belief in democracy, and service to America over to oneself. Joe will be a great president if you will take the time to VOTE. VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN.

Another 4 years of Trump will unleash the worst in his bad behavior and drag America down to autocracy. VOTE! VOTE TRUMP OUT OF OFFICE! VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN WHO WILL BE A REAL AMERICAN PRESIDENT TO BRING HONESTY AND COMPETENCE BACK TO OUR GOVERNMENT AND LEAD US OUT OF THE COVID CRISIS!

TRUMP IS GETTING NERVOUS

The last day of the 2020 election is the day after tomorrow, and Trump is getting nervous. He is trying every dirty trick in his bag. He crippled the US Postal Service to keep Americans from sending mail-in ballots. A fleet of his goons surrounded and attacked a Biden Campaign bus in Texas. His phony COVID adviser Dr. Atlas, who considers us Americans a herd that will magically develop herd immunity if we just let the virus kill off the weakest among us, went on RT (Russian propaganda television) to tell us to not protect ourselves from the virus. So in 2 days, God willing, enough Americans will vote for Joe Biden to overcome all the obstacles placed in front of us by Trump, his enablers, his boss Putin, and Putin’s neo-KGB to usher in a new age of normalcy, competence, and honesty to clean up the mess left by Trump and his gang and to bring Trump’s virus epidemic under control.

COVID! COVID! COVID!

Donald Trump: You are such an idiot (and a sociopath)! You tried to sweep the COVID pandemic under the rug because you thought it would hurt you politically. If you would have shown some empathy for us American people (even if you would have faked the empathy part), you would have done what American presidents have done in the past (like Lincoln with the Confederacy Rebellion, FDR in World War II, the older George Bush when Iraq invaded Kuwait, the Younger George Bush at 9-11 although he could have eliminated the side war in Iraq, and Barak Obama with the Ebola epidemic) by being honest and stepping up to the plate. But instead you chose the chicken option by pretending the pandemic is no big deal. Well, your stupidity, laziness, and lack of courage has backfired on you. It has exposed what a fake you are. Your loyal zombies who will follow you into any abyss unbelievably make up a shrinking 1/3 of our population. But the election will be won by the 2/3 of us who have come to see you as you are and who will overcome your voter suppression, dismantling of the US Postal Service, gerrymandering, neo-KGB hacking, and other misdeeds to win the election. Donald, you exposed yourself. America has been hit harder by COVID then any other country in the developed world because of your mismanagement. It is time for you to step aside when we get Joe Biden as a real president. Remember Donald, COVID! COVID! COVID! will remain in your nightmares.

VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN TO SAVE AMERICAN DEMOCRACY

The USA has existed and grown as a democratic republic for more than 200 years. The freedom of our republic has been challenged by the corruption, dishonesty, chaos, incompetence, and self-serving immorality of Donald Trump more than it has ever been challenged before. I believe that the Trump test is in the same league as the test posed by the Confederacy during their rebellion that we call the Civil War. The election has begun. Millions of votes have been already cast. The voting will culminate in a few days, and it will likely take some days after that to get the results. The Trump Party has put their thumbs on the scale as we have never seen before including the use of cyber attacks by Putin’s neo-KGB, crippling the US Postal Service to stop mail-in votes, placing obstacles to make voting difficult for voters, and even sending armed goons to voting places to intimidate voters. We need every patriotic American to vote. We need overwhelming numbers of voters (Democrats, Independents, and Lincoln Republicans) to overcome Trump’s shrinking minority and show the world that democracy still exists in America.

VOTE! VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS! VOTE FOR AMERICA!
