“Election Day–Keeping Score at Home”
The most important election of our life-time? The most important decision since the years of the Depression and the onset of World War II?
People at the polls today will make a final decision on Trump-vs-Biden. Or maybe it is America-vs-Trump.
They have voted in record numbers in advance via Mail In ballots and drop off boxes.
The sun comes up this Election Day morning with the nation in the grips of an unrelenting global pandemic. The death toll climbing to 230,000 by the end of the week.
A nation reeling with Civil unrest in a long hot summer of racial violence and protests.
A choke hold unemployment rate, record setting bankruptcies, and a fear America may not come back to the jobs lost for years to come.
Natural disasters ravaging our nation from violent fires, hurricanes and blizzards. The toll on human suffering is never ending by climate change around the globe.
And in the midst of all this, President Trump continues to wage war on his opponent, on Democrats, on governors, on the media.
Voted in four years ago, I viewed him as a “Reality Show TV President”. He promised to change everything. He brought out the anger in an American society tired of politics in Washington.
For every step forward came multiple steps back. For every name hire, there came a series of firings and dismissals.
For every issue there was a corresponding critical tweet.
For every statement there was constant ‘fact-checking’ that proved truth was somewhere else.
As time went on, I became appalled at the lack of dignity shown by the White House leader. Things said, actions taken, blame game assigned.
And then the Virus-Crisis struck.
I’ve been keeping score at home, and want you to look at the list that follows of what the President said, did, meant, blamed.
And when you are done, you tell me whether this has been a good four year run? Has this been the kind of leadership you expected? Is there an accountability bill that will likely be paid by the time we get to late evening.
Covid nothing to worry about.
It’s only five cases…be down to 1-case next week.

The White House…where once upon a time, words like loyalty-respect-honesty-integrity-moral fiber-intelligence were all part of the job.
You held the position of President with reverence for all it has meant since the days of Washington-Jefferson-Lincoln.
In the toughest of times, Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, JFK, Eisenhower rallied America thru its toughest times.
Donald Trump’s ‘America’ is about hate, divisiveness and deaths. It’s fires, riots, anger.
It’s about him, not about the death toll, nor unemployment.
It’s stalled stimulus bills in his Republican house as America’s workforce suffers.
It’s lies, half-truths, mis-statements, and lack of intelligence.
There is no moral compass, for this is how he has acted his entire life.
When night falls after the daylong elections, maybe America calls for a change.
When the sun come up on Wednesday, Trump, for all he said, all he did, all those he mis-treated, will have a bill come due.
Maybe the next time federal troops will be seen in Washington, will be when he is forcibly removed from the White House. Maybe the day after the next inauguration his wife sues him for divorce. The day after that, he gets indicted for tax evasion.
Maybe his mail will be forwarded from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to some Federal Penitentiary.
I always wondered when people died and went to hell, would there forever be pain. Maybe Richard Nixon’s corrupt career could tell us. Maybe Donald Trump should consider what life after death for the hell he created will be like.
As the time went on, the incidents grew, the bodies on the government and military leaders left on the street-their careers ravaged, words kept coming to mind. The man is a demagogue. Deranged. Unhinged. Narcissist. Incompetent.
You vote for whom you want.
Just wanted to remind you what my scorecard looks like.
‘Make America Great Again’.
Sure. Remove the cancer that is our leader in the White House.
