'Tis Only My Opinion!

October 2020 - Volume 40, Number 10


On Tuesday, September 29th, President Trump and former Vice-Present Biden held what was supposed to be a Presidential Debate ... it ended up being nothing like that.

Of course, it should not have been a surprise after almost four years of the Trump Derangement Syndrome and threats of the Democratic Party members advocating impeachment. Biden's participation and comments in the January 4th, 2017 Oval Office meeting virtually guaranteed that Trump would not feel kindly to any of Biden's comments about his family nor himself.

Chris Wallace, the supposedly neutral moderator, was unable to keep control of the debate and by his choice of questions to both participants helped fuel the rhetoric.

Enough said!

As many observers have suggested, this is an election of fundamental importance to the two century old American experiment of a constitutional republic.

The electorate can choose a government moving towards the chaos in Latin and Southern America ... particularly, towards the outcome of Venezuela and its socialistic mess ... or it can choose a country which observes the Constitution and Bill of Rights embodied in the U.S. which promises equal justice for all.

Of course, the swamp creatures of the bloated bureaucracy don't want their power blunted. Have any of the investigations into government duplicity and outright meddling into the affairs of the opposition party brought any serious indictments to date?  Where is the Durham Report? Or is it just another stonewalling operation trying to run out the clock until a new government takes over?

The difference in our justice system is not that showcased by the Floyd affair!  It is rather the fact that we have a two-tiered justice system whose deficiences needs to be seriously addressed!

 During the pandemic response millions of non-government citizens have enjoyed unemployment and many small businesses have been destroyed.  Contrast that with the number of public employees whose jobs have been eliminated and/or compensation reduced.

Of course, with shrinking sales tax and property tax payments showing significant reductions in revenues, many state and local governments are on the verge of facing hard decisions about staffing levels.

Perhaps, the silent majority has had enough!

In about 35 days, we will find out which way the U.S. will move  ...

Of course, for me, it is probably a mute point since I have lived well over the majority of my life span.

However, if there is no clear-cut resolution in this election, the chaos facing U.S. citizens may not be peaceful.

But then - 'Tis Only My Opinion!

Remember to:

Keep It Safe, Simple and Stay Focused!
