Election Time

Unlike past elections, we the public, through our media, know full well what the candidates stand for. Millions of dollars have been spent to persuade the voters to elect their candidate.

No other election that I can remember has been as contentious as this one.

The Republican candidate for president blatantly spouts obvious lies he knows he is telling but does not care.

Recent polls indicated a large percentage of the public believe him.

“Love me,” he says, and half the people do. We are a gullible people. 

I am an old “geezer” (106) but would like to be around to see how it all plays out. With the continued good luck I have had perhaps I will.

I’m trying.

Some things change, some remain the same.

This has been the most contested and vindictive presidential contest in my lifetime.

At this writing, it is not yet clear who is the winner. Voters (me) have made their choice, but the ballot counters still counting have not.

It is my belief, and my hope, that Joe Biden will be our next president and will prove to be one of our best.

Our country is at a nail-biting stage. TV viewers are glued to their chairs awaiting the outcome. “The fat lady has not spoken yet.”

If Donald Trump wins (If I were a religious man I would say “God forbid”) the portent for our country’s future is a bleak one.

Trump already has done much damage to our country and he vows to do more.

His attack on the Affordable Care Act so far has not been successful, but for sure he will keep trying.

The only way to frustrate and stop him is to “Dump Trump.”

Age wise, I am considered old and feeble (with good reason) and despite the fact that I have dentures, can still bite.

This is a great country, let’s keep it that way.

“Dump Trump”
