Integrity Part II – Who Killed JFK

I’m closing 2020 with this demand to my representatives in Washington DC.

I’ll follow this with letters to my State representatives and to my local newspapers as well as all the other representatives and senators in my state legislature. We often wonder what we can do as citizens to affect our national well-being. Communicate – demand action!

    Why election integrity has not been a top priority with everyone around the country given this most recent election remains a mystery.

    One answer is that U.S. citizens are just used to having a pretty good life no matter who is in power. They have grown indifferent to elections and political leaders because the nation has always lived well compared to others and they think it will continue to do so in the future.

    But a very different and disturbing explanation is also possible. It is sadly apparent that there are a large number of people in the U.S. and in its leadership positions whose priority is the opposite of yours and mine. We, first and foremost, want clean and transparent elections and only then want our candidate to win. If he doesn’t, we have another election coming at a future date and can push for a change. The other side wants just the opposite where nothing matters except getting their man in office. It reminds of some friends in Africa who described the African view of democracy as “one man, one vote, one time.” This approach is certain to kill this nation as it has most third world countries and totalitarian states. When elections cannot be trusted, neither can the people who come to power as a result.

    The deterioration of this country is accelerating at a frightening pace. And while at one time I thought guys in our age range would not be around to see the final descent into terrain, I now am thinking we might be on board when it happens.

    At least we won’t be blindsided by all this as we definitely see the bullet coming.

      I’m working on the comment display issue you pointed out. I’ve got to the point where you have to click on the “comment” button in the lower right-hand corner to get the comments displayed. The site “Theme” I use used to display comments as a default. I’m looking to find a way to do that again. Yeah, right.

      Again, thanks for pointing out the issue. It may be a while before I have the fix I want.
