As we enter the year 2022, there are many critical issues that need to be addressed and acted on if we are to save our country from Marxism and single-political-party rule; i.e. the sure route to communism. If you have any doubts about the need and/or urgency to do so, a review of Joe Biden’s disastrous and divisive first year in office should remove said doubts. Both Biden and his vice president have shown themselves to be unworthy and incapable of carrying out the duties of their office. Various independent polls have shown public confidence in them to be less than 30 percent and still declining. In his first year in office, Biden has already accrued notoriety as the worse president in U.S. history. A relieved Jimmy Carter was pleased to surrender that title.
With important nationwide mid-term elections coming up in 2022, one of the most pressing needs of those of us who are battling to save our country from Marxism and the ongoing train wreck that is the Biden administration is ensuring the integrity of both the 2022 elections and future elections at all levels of government; i.e. federal, state and local. With Joe Biden’s so-called “Build Back Better” bill thankfully derailed by the U.S. Senate, the “puppet masters” controlling the president, vice president, and the Marxist Democrat Party have already turned their attention to pushing passage of their version of an Election Reform Bill. Not surprisingly, it is written in such a way that only Marxist Democrats can win an election. That is a hallmark tactic of socialism, Marxism and communism.
Honest elections are a key cornerstone of government by we the people. That is why this most important of cornerstones is under attack by those whose goal is to turn the United States into a Marxist petri dish.
Since the majority of our school systems no longer teach American history, it is doubtful that today’s school-age children know that on Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln, standing on the bloody Civil War battlefield, at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, made his most remembered speech, which honored the soldiers who had fought and died there. He ended his speech with these resounding words ... “We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
Now, 159 years later, our renowned form of constitutional government, our way of life and freedoms are under attack by an insidious axis of evil; i.e. the hijacked Democrat Party, now the centerpiece of Marxism in the U.S., large profit-driven multi-national corporations like Disney and the National Basketball Association, and big tech companies like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The worst are, of course, the money- driven politicians who draft and pass backroom brokered legislation that supports the goals of the leftist conspirators.
That is why I oppose lobbyists having unreported and non-monitored access to our congressional representatives. Lobbyists are the primary means by which payoffs are arranged and funneled to “helpful” politicians. Restoration and maintaining the high standards expected of our elected congressional officials will require a long overdue investigation of the extensive lobbying of congress.
Unfortunately, the needed investigative agencies, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, have been politicized to the point that their heretofore highly-regarded integrity is now highly questionable. I have always operated under the belief that laws are not suggestions or general guidelines but are both definitive and binding to all, even government officials and politicians. These two agencies seem to have forgotten that.
Speaking of a lack of trust, I was astounded to read the following statement in a recent politically oriented article: “If politicians believe that voters cannot be trusted with the truth, democracy is seriously at risk.” In rebuttal, I contend that if a politician withholds the truth from the voters, it is the politician who is at risk and not to be trusted. The voters are the employer, and the politicians are the beholden employees. How can voters properly exercise their democratic rights and make good decisions if they are denied the truth?
With that question, I end my commentary. I will have some more insight for you in Part II of “The need to ensure the integrity of the 2022 mid-term and future elections.”
God bless America!
