Every election cycle,the American people are bombarded by messages from those who think they are fit to lead. Most of them are not,but they wear nice clothes and smile a lot,so other people listen to the garbage spewing forth and agree or disagree.
Meetings are held,speeches are given,unhealthy ‘finger’food gets eaten,and we wonder to ourselves if anything said is true. We listen to men and women who are different from the scoundrels begging on the street only by the clothes they wear and the phony smiles featuring false teeth and the painted smiles of the women seeking a paycheck at the expense of the taxpayer.
It would be amusing,if we weren’t in such dire straits.
It used to be that meetings were held in smoke-filled rooms where men bargained and gambled using the future of the people as bargaining chips. Now it is politically incorrect to smoke,but the rooms stink anyway from the hot air expended by the self-important wannabes and their handlers.
The unethical shenanigans and the dishonest tricks are used not to help one,but to hinder one. It is a disgusting business. Billions of dollars are spent bringing messages to the weary voters;most of these messages are not believed by either side. It is the best liar who wins. It is the one who can pull the dirtiest tricks that gets the votes.
Here in Clark County,Nevada,we have a situation that defies any logic – even in politics. A candidate for the United States House of Representatives has used nefarious means to win the primary election for the Republican candidacy in the general election in the fall. His followers think he won. We lost. We lost because we have now a man who has proven himself to be unworthy of the title of Representative. How could anyone now address him as The Honorable _____ _________?
That is how he will be addressed,if he wins the general. I hope he does because his opponent is even worse. I shudder at the prospect of my grandchildren’s future,for it is a dismal future.
The chairman and vice-chairman of the Clark County Republican Party Central committee both resigned their positions at about the same time and joined Team Nevada (that is the name the unfair and dishonest Republican National Committee is using for their anointed candidate.) This move was planned far in advance,perhaps even in advance of a questionable vote at the bi-monthly meeting of the CCRPCC. Team Nevada accepted the former members of the Central Committee. Would you accept such people to your team? This is,at best,dishonest. We now have a potential presidential candidate who willingly accepts men who have proven themselves to be less than forthright. What does that say for the candidate? You are known by the company you keep.
At the State level of the Republican Party,a technician “accidentally” provided one Congressional candidate with the list of 1,600 purged voters as the current list of voters,while at the same time providing the ultimate winner with a list of 20,000 current voters,then resigned and joined Team Nevada.
Do those who support and will vote for the scoundrel think that they can trust him? If they do,they are being very foolish. A dishonest person cannot be trusted. That is a gold-plated fact. Yet,that is exactly what we will have if the man wins the general election – a man who has proven that he will accept the help of duplicitous people with a smile and a “thank-you.”He cannot be trusted to be open and honest.
The people who support this dishonesty call themselves Christians,attend church services regularly,put a few dollars in the coffers at their church,and bow and say “amen”when the Pastor calls for honest and ethical actions in their daily lives. But could we trust them to keep our books?
These people who pull the dirty tricks think they win. They don’t. In the end,they lose like the rest of us because they have helped put someone of low character in a position to make decisions as to how many men and women will be sent to war. Let the funeral dirge continue for our once-great Republic. The casket is closed;the nails are being driven home. They are being driven there by some who think they have convinced others they have done a service for mankind.
Only one of the presidential candidates championed freedom,lower taxes,bringing our troops home,ending the foolish wars,and living in Peace. No,there were no winners in this latest debacle that was called a “primary election.”
Come November 6th,will we have a choice of one liar or another,or will we have an honest man to vote for? Will we be forced to choose the liar we distrust the least,or will we be able to choose for our next President a man who we can trust?
