The View from the Tenderloin

The View from the Tenderloin

You can feel it coming. Many people have voted already, there is electricity in the air.
We have learned so much, about ourselves and about each other. Those of us who have fought against this administration, in ways big and small, have wondered where his support comes from. The evil is so obvious to us. A third of the population see Trump when they look in their own mirrors. They are as lost as he is.

He reads the polls, and the closer we get to the election, the more desperate he is becoming. What he did yesterday on Fox, demanding his A/G arrest his political opponents, has implications that are as ugly as they are obvious. His mob mentality both binds and blinds him.

The news that he maintains a bank account in China, and pays taxes there, is unsurprising.

Hold those dear to you close,

God save the Republic.

There is just over two weeks to go, thank God. Joe is on his game, it amazes me how much info he can process. Trump is trying to put a good face on the fact that his campaign is disintegrating, staff is either down with the plague, or heading for the exits.. He is a drug addled mess, and whatever happens, it's not going to be pretty.

The Senate. It all hinges on the Senate. It has the power to stop any movement towards dealing with this crises. It's going to take a nationwide, coordinated effort to deal with the plague. Once it is dealt with, the economy will come back, probably come roaring back. Which is the very last thing a republican controlled Senate is going to want to see happen. They wouldn't let it happen under a Trump administration, thinking they'll let it happen under a Biden administration is delusional.

Lets stop pretending that the republicans are patriots acting in good faith. They are not. They will actively sabotage any and all efforts to put things back on track. We MUST take the Senate, please contribute to one of the tight races if possible.

God save the Republic.

We are in the final stretch, and people are paying attention. Everyone, finally. Here is my take from recent events, short and sweet.

A republican Senator, Lee, said out loud what they try not to. Democracy no longer works for them, and shouldn't be the end goal.

Ok, let's go there. If you want to know what their end goal is, think South Africa about a generation ago. Minority rule, enforced by a brutal police state. That's what they want. It's not what I want. Their purpose is as ugly as their souls.

This election, distilled down, is about whether or not this democracy lives another day.

Hold those dear to you close

God save the Republic
