In a few days you go to the polls and vote…..and how will you vote…..why do you vote as you do? Of course those are rhetorical questions so don’t get too excited…..
I am just trying to be a little FYI and to make my readers think before they use their vote…..
There are many Americans that have witnessed the descent of American politics into tribalism…..a political “us against them”…..
“Every difference of opinion,” Thomas Jefferson warned in his first inaugural address, “is not a difference of principle.” Speaking to his countrymen after an election every bit as bitter as the one that put Donald J. Trump in the White House, Jefferson was trying to soothe the reigning animosity between the nation’s two dominant political parties. “We are all Republicans,” he added. “We are all Federalists.”
Not anymore. In 21st century America, any notion that election results end the argument, however temporarily, is an anachronism. So, too, is the conceit that a nation this large and diverse is divided neatly along “50-50” lines, with half of America’s 253 million adults supporting Democrats, and the other half backing Republicans.
Today, slightly more than one-fourth of registered voters in the United States have political views and social attitudes placing them in the camp of the “Resistance” — to President Trump and the Trump-era Republican Party.
I guess I would be either “The Resistance” or “Independent Blues”……just depends when in life you ask……
Please do your research on the issues and vote your beliefs….above all….VOTE!
