I plan to vote in seven days. Hopefully I do not catch COVID between now and then. I plan on voting the way I always do. It is my way of imposing a sense of normalcy on the election craziness.
In my home there can be no other choice than Trump, well yes there is a choice. However Trump is the answer. Yet when I go to work, there is no other choice than Biden. There is no choice, it is Biden or fear. Real fear. MSNBC plays constantly. 1984 was prophetic. It is very easy for me to rationalize that societies fail.
I guess the best thing to say is to expect the unexpected. Let me recap my thoughts. For the first time in my life we have gone into an election with peace in the Middle East. That was always the holy grail of politics. It has been largely achieved. The most amazing thing to me personally is that we as a country have achieved energy independence. Something that may have something to do with peace in the east. Yet we do not talk about things like that. Turn on the news, and realize that the news has been measured at Ninety Six percent against the president. A truly impressive measure hatred. For when it comes down to it Ninety Six percent of the negative news is false. It is so bad that I have given up refuting it. Society has failed.
Saw a simultaneous Trump Rally and Biden rally on TV today. Two separate channels, I flipped back and forth. The difference in enthusiasm is staggering. Trump, the comfortable storyteller versus the stammering fearmonger. They wouldn’t show the Biden crowd, but it did not sound very large. Trump crowds, they are massive. Even in the time of COVID.
When it comes to driving the roads there are more Biden signs than there were Hillary signs four years ago. I guess that just goes to show that the Democrats are really sexist. Trump signs are not that prevalent. The ones that show up disappear shortly later. Either that or they are vandalized. There is a large Trump sign at a major intersection that is broadly painted with the word “Racist”. These people are not kind. Another Trump sign at another major intersection is covered in white paint. Vile.
Joe Biden has more bought enthusiasm than Hillary did. There was also a tolerance for tokenism in the last election. Now, we give in to the fear. There is no debate, only the threat of war. It was a Hillary campaign worker that first told me of the coming civil war, so it has been in planing for some time. Yes I still hear about it. I write about what I hear and see. It comes from the left.
I see on the news that there is violence in the cities. People are dying. Political violence, paid for by billionaires. Be afraid.
My plan is to hide, I do not want to fight. I hope it does not come to that though. Also I plan to vote, like there is nothing wrong. I will say hi to the protagonists in the most evil of charades, as they are still my neighbours. I will wonder, where do we go from here?
In seven days.
