Positive Vibrations

Let's see: the west coast in flames, the gulf being flooded, corona virus, racial tensions, economic crisis ..... 2020 has been a hell of a year. On one hand, the Bob Marley message seems the exact opposite of the growing list of awful things. However, in a very real sense, they fit togather -- much like Paul and John's lyrics on the 1967 song "Getting Better."

Paul: "It's getting better all the time."
John: "Can't get much worse."

How bad is it? Even the Trump cult members, including on those sad, sad saps that worship at the alter of Q-anon, know the country is in real trouble. Still, in an important way, it is indeed getting better, if not all the time. We are seeing Trump melt-down on live television, as it unfolds.

We know that he will try to steal the election. The nonsense with mail-in voting being a "threat." The shit with the US Post Office. (My mailwoman took a couple pictures of my MoveOn "We Love the Post Office" bumper-sticker this afternoon and posted them on facebook.) He will welcome help from foreign nations, not limited to Russia. More help will come from the Middle East.

It's important to recognize that the 2016 help from Russia, particulary the misinformation and disinformation inserted on the internet, will not be as effective this year. While it's true that 25% of the population will be fooled by them, all conscious, thinking people know the deal. And there are more of us than there are of them, including in the states we need to win in November. And we have more reason to vote than they do.

Because Donald is a sociopath -- many experts are saying the most important in US history, maybe wotld history, and that he is a very stable genius -- and so we can't be overconfident and let our guard down, there aren't many other things he can do, except lie, whine, hold rallies, and call in to Fox & Fiends and Hannity. But he lacks the talent, insight, and ability of a Nixon, or even Reagan, in terms of governing, for good or for bad.

The books and tapes that have recently been published upset him. Those loyal to him are discouraged, and beginning to turn on one another. One slob is "on leave," after posting a paranoid post on the internet. Those that are not loyal to him will express their frustrations in an increasing series of leaks to the media.

Perhaps the only thing he has left as an option is to lsten to Stephan Miller, and start a war -- directly or indirectly -- and declare it a national emergency, hoping to gain "patriotic" votes. As if we aren't already confronting a half-dozen domestic national emergencies.

Winning the White House is essential. At this time, we are in very good position, and Trump is in a terrible position. And it's getting better all the time.
