Like Trump, Stefanik offers empty words

Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Jacob Javits, Nelson Rockefeller, John Lindsay, Colin Powell. There have been many great Republicans. Where have all the good ones gone?

The ex-president from Mar-A-Lago is purging them all. Toe The Donald’s line or else. His new, custom corrupt GOP, even extending this far north now, receives its daily brainwashing from Fox News.

Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn now tells us, “Global elites created COVID,” and millions believe him. These anti-vax Lemmings for Trump will sacrifice themselves and their children just to keep the virus alive through President Joe Biden’s first, and thereby only, term.

It should be obvious to Democrats and independents that the saboteurs above are using the pandemic to seize power in upcoming elections. But it appears to me that the party “in power” lacks the courage to publicly call them out, preferring to fight with one hand tied behind their back.

One shudders to think of Trump’s 2025 revenge tour. The Putins of this world are saying, “Democracy has had its day. But only Strong Man governments get things done.” Will we still have enough franchised voters left in red states to prove them wrong?

Bide is hurting himself and the poor and middle class. Putin will be right if the democrats continue to be in power. They are using Covid-19 to control the people. Shutting down business, churches and even family gatherings during holidays is their way. Causing inflation by reducing the availability of energy hurts those they say they are trying to help. They continue to create the notion that our democracy and the constitution is at risk because of republicans when in fact it is at risk because of them. They hate the constitution because it limits their power and that's why they want to change what they don't like. Accuse others of what you are doing is the way to authoritarian rule. Put your hate aside and use your eyes.
