Every Presidential election year in the past I have been excited about and looked forward to voting and watching the returns…not this year and I hope to never see another one like this one.
I will vote and I am encouraging others to vote…more people must vote this November than ever before. We have a choice to vote for better things for our country or to make it worse than it has become under the present Washington crowd, I refuse to call them leaders. If we had leaders or more to show some backbone up there the country would not be in such a mess. I do have respect for Senator Mitt Romney, he was not afraid to show he had some backbone when he was the lone Republican vote to impeach Trump. He has spoken out for the right thing at least one other time I know of. I pray he is blessed for showing he is not afraid to stand up and speak out for the right thing when he feels something is wrong.
We not only need a President, but many more in the crowd up there need to be replaced, they either are doing nothing for the good of the country or they have been there way too long. They are mostly serving themselves, not giving a thought to the people that voted them in to office and were expecting them to work on their behalf.
I am so tired of hearing lies and ugly name calling, from a lot of Republicans and some Democrats. I have always been a registered Democrat and for the first time ever I am hurt and embarrassed by what some of the Democrats are saying and doing, it is way more than mud slinging like I have seen and heard in the past, it is horrible and some is just plain evil.
A rant was called for so I ranted here. Now I feel a tiny bit better…rant over. Feel free to comment if you have something to say that would help you feel better.
I’ve watched the goings on in the US with sadness and dismay, and disbelief. It still doesn’t make sense to me that tRump was voted into office and I often wonder how America became derailed. He seems to have evoked so many of the wrong values and beliefs and I wonder why. I too can’t watch the news anymore and in fact I logged off Facebook too because I got sick of the trump posts. Not that the corrupt bunch in government in the UK are any better and I can’t bear to see or read anything more about the way they are mishandling their job. They’re all out for their own interests and the country is going to hell in a bucket. Let’s hope reason prevails and you get a change of administration, and I’m holding on for our next election year…time to kick the corruption out. All the best.
Oh, my goodness how I agree with you. I like your “tRump”. I have not been doing anything on social media either, I am just so sick of it all and will be so glad when the election is behind us. I hope and pray all the corruption gets voted out. Thank you so much for your comment. Have a great day.
My heart is heavy. I, like you, have been one to anticipate the outcome of elections, especially the election for President. The 2016 election was a nightmare, and has only gotten worse as we watch this president destroy our country with the approval of his “Trumpers”. I no longer call his followers “Republicans”. I believe those who have become as hateful and nasty as D.J. Trump should not be allowed to be a part of the Republican party. They should be called out for who they are. I know some very kind Republicans, with whom I do not always agree, but who have not forgotten what it means to be a Republican. I also know a few of those former Republicans who are now Trumpers. I have lost all respect for those who cannot, or will not see this president for who he really is. What makes my heart hurt even more, is hearing some Democrats become as hateful and nasty as the Trumpers. We should never stoop that low. We are too good for that, it doesn’t make a bad situation better, it only makes it worse. I am proud to be a registered Democrat, and I want to be proud of my fellow Democrats. We all have to vote! Now, Trump is threatening to confiscate the ballots so he will be able to continue his Presidency. Do not let that deter you! We HAVE to have a landslide victory for former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris. Our Democracy truly is at stake!! PLEASE VOTE!!!!
Thank you so much for your comment You are right that we should not let Trump threatening to confiscate the ballots deter us from voting. Thank you for your help in encouraging people to vote. All Democrats who care about saving our country need to VOTE. Hopefully there are Republicans that see what Trump and his Trumpers have done, and continue doing to try to destroy our Democracy…and will vote for Vice President Biden and Senator Kamala Harris.
I think politics in general have sunk to historic lows – and unfortunately it spills over into the general population and even families. Too many think it is ok to cross lines we never would have in previous generations.
Well said. I totally agree with you.
Sometimes rants are called for. 😀. Especially when they are against cruelty, injustice, gossip, and lies…👍🏼
I agree. Thank you for your comment.
