Republicans Terrified

As election day draws closer, and women make history on the ballot so does the level of panic on the part of the majority white male GOP, the VP and a POTUS band of wandering gypsies. Unprecedented early voting figures give #USA hope.

The Republicans could be wondering what happened to The Grand Old Party? Since POTUS with his VP and the GOP-held Congress have been in control, the US debt has significantly spiked by a $1.3 trillion increase after a tax cut for the rich to benefit the 1 percent, while the majority of Americans have made little gains in their pay, or in the quality of life issues.

They have called themselves the party of no crime, but it is their followers who have sent pipe bombs and shot innocent Americans worshipping at religious congregations.

Under the Republicans, the nation keeps falling deeper in debt, which is what Trump's longstanding track record has indicated. American taxpayers will be forced to cover this outrageous waste of funds. This massive capital should have been used to pay for our decaying infrastructure, not for golf outings, troops at the border, a border wall, which Mexico was supposed to pay for as well as many other frivolous expenditures.

Meanwhile, Trump has decided to reverse the US Constitution, as well as agreements and policies established by Democrats, and he is also destroying Republican achievements like withdrawing from a Reagan-era nuclear treaty with Russia. An Obama-era arms control treaty could be next. And last but not least, if the Republicans keep control, they will try to end the #TrumpRussia investigation, which has yielded multiple indictments and guilty pleas.

Meanwhile, a Trump lawyer on the Russia probe has been making mysterious appearances abroad. He was just seen visiting friends specifically a Putin ally. Does anyone recall seeing anything like this before?

But all is not gloom and doom. About 1,500 current and former educators are running for state and federal office this year, more than triple the number who usually run in an election cycle. And finally, the number of women running for election during these historic midterms is worth noting and hoping for a necessary turnaround.

Our Democracy must triumph on Election Day to send a bright flashing signal to all Americans who stand for Truth and Justice.

Vote like our quality of life depends on it and before the party in power destroys what we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
