It’s time to Break It Down!
OK, get ready for one of the shortest blogs ever. No citations, no links, just in essence what amounts to my thought for the day.
As I read, watch news shows, listen to podcasts, and converse with friends, I have been confronted by a recurring theme. Democrats are panicked because they are concerned Donald Trump may win again, not because he is a better, or even a worthy candidate, but because:
- Democrats won’t be able to field a competitive candidate.
- The field is humongous; candidates will cannibalize one another.
Relax. It’s April 24th. On this date four years ago, more than 6 weeks passed before Donald Trump announced his candidacy. At least from a calendaring perspective, it looks like Joe Biden is set to announce with time to spare.
Moreover, while at it’s max, the Dems are certain to have 20 or more candidates, don’t forget Donald Trump formally dispatched 16 intrepid Republicans on his way to the GOP nomination, including a guy who claimed presidential DNA, and a staggering one hundred thirty million dollar war chest.
The bottom line is, seemingly all-knowing prognostications notwithstanding, we don’t have a clue how this passion play will unfold, and we certainly don’t know who will be last man or woman standing. Having said that, we do know one this with unswerving assuredness. Elections have consequences! We are living them now.
It has been said Democrats who stay home elect Republicans. Don’t get me wrong. If you are a Republican, I’m perfectly cool with you voting your conscience. Do you! Alternately however, if you are a Democrat, I urge you not to be deterred by Russians or by Republicans. Vote. Vote in primaries, vote in run-offs, and vote in the General Election. Don’t Believe The Hype: It’s Still Early!
I’m done; holla back!
