Election Day. Consistency.

As a 47 year old, who’s exercised my right to vote in several elections now, the one thing I’ve learned from this election is that consistency matters, be it consistency, on the part of the Democrats with Joe Biden and his messaging to the American people, or be it consistency with President Trump and his lack of leadership for the American people. Joe Biden is very consistent with his message, he’s very consistent with what he does with what he says, and what he will do for us, as President Trump is consistent with his lies, consistent with his lack of leadership, consistent with his lack of response to the COVID-19, and consistent with just being all over the place with alternative facts, to reality of what’s going on in America right now.

COVID is not rounding the turn. It’s not about to end. In fact, they just reported this morning (11/2/20), that there are about 80,000 cases, each day being reported and that is, yes sir, because we’re doing more testing with the virus, and not “because of the testing”, as your president likes to say. Why? Because we want people to know their status and to be able to tell other people that they’re around their families, their co-workers, etc., so they can also get tested, if necessary. 

So if anything is consistent with Donald Trump, it’s that he lies, he hates, he’s a racist, a sexist – – all of these things are all consistent with who he is. And in the words of Oprah, this, we know for sure. Joe Biden, on the other hand has been consistent with a plan, a plan for education, a plan for health care, a plan for everything that he’s going to do. 

So, you know, if you have not voted yet please keep those things in mind, we want someone as a leader who is going to be consistent, not wishy washy or willy nilly, and on point every time. And you know what you’re going to expect from them. With Donald Trump, in the words of Forrest Gump, he’s like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get. You never know what to expect with each day. The only thing he knows how to do is tweet nasty messages to people,  even retweeting the fact that his supporters in Texas, surrounded the Biden bus on a highway scaring them, after that, to the point where they had to cancel an event, and they felt unsafe. This is your president who shouldn’t have time for such things. 

We’re already feeling unsafe, because of COVID but now you got Trump supporters, surrounded people like their vigilantes, like a rogue  militia on the freeway in Texas. Are you kidding? Who does that? What grown person has time to do that to somebody else? This is a democracy, so people are free to campaign and run for office the way they want to and they should not be intimidated on a highway in Texas, and then have your president retweeted saying I love Texas! Get out of here.

So, with that, again, if you have not voted, please keep consistency in mind, that is the key word for today consistency and to go vote. Have a great day. And thank you for reading.
