Letter to the Editor
This Year's Midterm Election Is A Make-Or-Break One For America!

While the world rapidly descends into economic chaos and the dogs of war bark louder every day, the politicians in America are razor focused on being re-elected. The American media mostly ignores the real-world’s problems unless they can report them in a way to hurt republicans. Propped up by his media sycophants, Biden’s regime is in what could be labeled as a laughable denial, if only the dangers to our country weren’t so serious.

The present administration’s most glaring fiasco is the humanitarian disaster Biden has created at our southern border. In just two years since Biden appointed the clueless, cackling Kamala Harris to be the border czar, 4,000,000 migrants have illegally entered our country, overwhelming the courts, overburdening a fragile health care system, crowding unprepared local schools, and costing billions to house them at a time when our citizens find it increasingly difficult to buy homes. Those are just the migrants we know about. Additionally, it is estimated that up to a million nefarious unknown got-aways have crossed the border, bringing with them record amounts of drugs. An average of 300 Americans die each day from fentanyl poisoning. Where is Biden’s concern for them?

It is not just American citizens that must pay a price for Biden’s erroneous open border policy. More than a thousand migrants, many children among them, have died during their journey, so many so that Texas is forced to use refrigerated trucks as temporary morgues! Women and young girls are raped daily, and many forced into sex slavery to pay the fees demanded by the cartels. Joe Biden is personally responsible for the largest human trafficking operation in world history! He is the Mexican cartels’ greatest ally, enriching them beyond their wildest dreams, to the tune of billions of dollars a month.

Why are we faced with this and so many other problems today? How did we get to this point? We got here because Joe Biden was selected, not elected! Even If you can convince yourself that the mountain of voter irregularities revealed by Mike Lindel is not there, or that Dinesh Dsouza’s vote harvesting film,”2000 Mules” doesn’t exist, even if you choose to believe all the evidence presented by them is only a right wing conspiracy, you cannot ignore other proven facts. Huner Biden’s laptop is real. It was hidden by the FBI and covered up by social media for months before the election, which if known about in time would have certainly changed the result. It is also true that some state legislatures unconstitutionally changed their election laws just weeks before November, and that Mark Zuckerberg poured millions of dark money dollars into democrat districts prior to the election.

Sadly, Joe Biden still believes that he is the most popular president in American history! He is like the king in the fable,” The Emperor’s New Clothes”, his subjects afraid to tell him the truth.

In less than two years, what has Joe Biden accomplished besides a broken border - a costly and tragically disgraceful withdrawal from Afghanistan, 40-year record inflation, climbing gas prices, rampant crime, vaccine mandates, armed forces recruitment short falls, depletion of our strategic oil reserves, war in Ukraine, questionable family ties to the communist Chinese, a corrupt FBI and DOJ, woke social engineering in our schools, concerned parents labeled as terrorists, and censorship of anyone that speaks out against his socialistic, dystopian plans? Aside from all those failures, it’s also hard to not notice his bizarre hair sniffing habit or the creepy way he sometimes whispers during speeches. He runs away from reporters and has held the least number of press conferences of any modern American president.

Biden is morphing into a present-day Don Quixote, attacking imagined MAGA windmills! He and the Democratic Party are a car wreck out of touch with reality. Unfortunately for us, the car they are driving is America.

The American electorate doesn’t understand that electing a president is not the same as a high school popularity contest. Trump wasn’t perfect, but unlike Biden, he loved America, and he couldn’t be bought. Regrettably, the rationale that many people based their vote on was that they didn’t like Trump’s personality. Similar to General George Patton in command of 3rd Army during WWII, when real leadership is needed, there is no time for political correctness.

With that in mind, I did cast my vote for Trump, but I wasn’t only voting for him. I voted for the 2nd amendment, which today is more important than ever in an increasingly lawless society. I voted for supreme court justices that follow the constitution instead of rewriting it. I voted for the sanctity of the electoral college for we are republic, not a democracy. The founding fathers were wary of democracies because throughout history they proved to be dangerously unstable. Most gave rise to totalitarianism. Karl Marx famously boasted, “Democracy is the road to socialism”. Be wary of any democrat claiming to protect democracy.

I voted for law and order instead of woke district attorneys. I voted for a strong, merit-based military. I voted for free speech not censored by social media. I voted for secure borders and more “legal” immigration. I voted for every unborn soul that the democrats want to abort, incredibly some even moments before birth. I voted for honest government and against encumbering elitists. I didn’t just vote for a person, I voted for freedom and the American dream.

But Biden is the reality we must contend with now. He is a befuddled, cognitive mess, living in the land of make believe, repeating false stories of his imagined exploits. He could be seen as an amusing, sympathetic figure, if only he wasn’t supposed to be the leader of the free world. He reminds me of a post turtle. When you're driving down a country road and you see a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle. You know he didn't get up there by himself! You’re sure he doesn't belong there, and you wonder why anyone would have put him up there. It’s impossible for him to get anything done and you just want to help the poor thing down."

This November 8, 2022 could be a day that decides the kind of country your children will grow up in. It is up to every republican, independent, and patriotic democrat voter to step up to the plate and save America. Miss this chance and you may never have another!
