I’m afraid that we may have learned very little from the debacle of 2020 and the leftist’s push to take over this country and run it into the ground. It is disheartening to see Trump not only pick a RINO like Katie Britt for the Georgia senate primary, but also for people to vote for her over a more established and trusted conservative like Mo Brooks. First, let me say that I am Trump’s biggest supporter. I literally have a shower curtain in my bathroom with the name Trump and him peeking out from the top corner. I think it’s hilarious and I love it.
For the record, I do understand that it’s about America and not about Trump, but he really did set the stage for the America First agenda. I will always support Trump and his efforts to save this country, but I do question some of his picks. Katie Britt is a good example. The case has been made that she is a RINO and has received a great deal of “dark money.” What’s more, she is supported by some democrats and by spineless Mitch McConnell, which should tell you everything you need to know about her. In fact, McConnell put over $2 million in efforts to help her win the primary.
But Trump’s picks are just that, picks. We don’t have to abide by them, although in many cases it may serve us well to do so. That said, who gets into office is ultimately up to us. However, Wednesday’s primary results cause me to lose a little hope. In addition to voting for Katie Britt in Alabama, the people of Georgia shockingly voted to keep both Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Governor Brian Kemp, men who proved to have no backbone and knowingly certified and supported a contested and fraudulent election while resisting all efforts to investigate the matter. Yet, when given a chance to vote them out and clean house, people chose to keep them as candidates for the midterm elections. We can do better than this. We must do better if we want to save this great country of ours.

“…when given a chance to vote them out and clean house, people chose to keep them as candidates for the midterm elections. We can do better than this. We must do better if we want to save this great country of ours.”
This catches the dilemma we face precisely. People know what is happening. They know what they should do. However, when it comes down to correcting the course, they refuse to act. This situation reinforces the belief I have that voting and elections are generally a monumental waste of time.
However, you have it right. We can and must do better. The questions pile up. Exactly WHAT must be done better? How can it be done better? Where should we make the necessary changes? Answer these and the course becomes clear.
