I’ve been asked to walk house-to-house to defend my country.
I’ve been asked to send money to defend my country.
I wish I could.
I’m a retired geezer lacking the energy or funds to do either.
But I have a voice and the desire……and yes, perhaps a bit of fear.
The best case scenario for what’s happening in Washington is that our country is being plundered for its treasure. Our current elected officials are pursuing revenue streams instead of good deeds. Rentals at Trump properties, golf cart rentals, sales of MAGA gear, NRA contributions, junkets to watch the eclipse, campaign funds redirected for parties and vacations, new dining room tables, intensification of marijuana and immigration prohibitions that augment prison populations that benefit the stockholders of private prisons (including the Attorney General who makes these decisions), a tax cut of which 80% of the cut goes to the richest of our population, the sale of our precious park lands…our park lands, dammit!
This is the best case scenario.
The worst case?
The weakening of our country and our democracy. The abandonment of our world leadership to Vladimir Putin, a known gangster.
This can be fixed.
But it must be fixed in a lot of places.
One of those places is in Kentucky. Just as in WWII, everyone must do their part. Our part is to elect Lt. Col. (Ret.) Amy McGrath.
Amy McGrath has fought for her country. It is a habit for her.
Her habit is not to fight for bankers, or payday lenders, or Democrats, or Republicans, or conservatives, or liberals. Her habit is to fight for her country.
I believe this to be true.
I will vote for her.
AND I will hold her accountable for my beliefs.
Somehow, I’m not worried about that part.
