What are the odds…

…things will be different?

This last Monday of 2020 will not be a Congressional Monday. But next week we start a new Congress. Boy, things will be different then, right?

A new batch of Congressional Leaders will arrive in Shangri-La on the Potomac and begin directing our nation…

Isn’t it refreshing? I can remember when, in December 2014, I wrote the excerpt shown in today’s letter:

I didn’t feel at all refreshed in 2015. What are the odds things will be different – in 2021?

Election Ingegrity Part I

Integrity – Representation/Election

Get it done????

From 12/2/2020 Grand Junction, Colorado, Daily Slentinel, Page 4A

Those who count the votes decide everything

Joseph Stalin said it best.

As we await the “results” of the 2020 Presidential Election (as well as some other nationally significant campaigns) the rumor and media mills continue to make flour out of rumor and induendo wheat. I think we deserve (and certainly need) to know what the hell is going on!

This letter was sent today to my two lame duck representatives plus remaining Senator Michael Bennet, Senator Elect John Hickenlooper, and Representative Elect Lauren Boebert.

Popular vote as Constitutionally intended?

It’s been way too long since I’ve posted on this blog. I suspect that my frustration with the nation being divided in every way I could imagine, and then some other ways I couldn’t imagine, has made an effect on my desire to complain or occasionally compliment.

The letter below was sent today to the Grand Junction Sentinel in response to a column praising the National Popular Vote Movement over the Electoral College – an effort to disenfranchise voters in the many states outside the most populous states. This follows most states having already disenfranchised many of their voters by forcing each Congressional District within their state to honor the state popular vote when assigning Electors to the Electoral College.

In my opinion, the only logical reason the Electoral College was formed by the founding fathers was to provide a method for each voter to cast his Presidential vote just as the voter cast his Representative vote – within the voter’s local district. If the founding fathers didn’t want it that way then why have the Electoral College?

Spending Trillion$ – Inflationary?

I heard the feds may be “asking” for $4 Trillion funds for “Liquidity.” Really??

ImPREACHment

Even though President Trump will most likely be acquitted by the US Senate in his impeachment trial, a radical religious and obsessive enthusiasm prevails throughout the Democratic Party representatives and leaders to continue to remove the President from office.

I want my representatives to spend their time working at their jobs:

They had a reason!

The founding fathers actually lived in tyrannical times. We cannot fathom that reality!

Their freedom was a dream worth dying for.

We think we can improve our freedom by twisting and turning it to serve politically motivated

tyrannical desires. The founding fathers formed our Republic for a reason!

This letter went to all the Representatives from Colorado in the US House of Representatives. Maybe they’ll think about what the chances are that they, individually, would have been elected had all their names, along with their election opponents, been put in one big state pot and all the voters of Colorado would have selected seven members from the pot. That’s fodder for another followup letter.

How’d You Do?

The last letter of 2019 – which none of the above will ever see because they are on “Break”.
One can always hope that there is a slight chance that one copy might slip through the micromesh screening process that exists in these Congressmen’s staff. That hope is the glimmer that keeps me going.
