The 2020 Election: Life and Liberty
Should the Democrats win and their radical policies be implemented, our econonmic system would be destroyed.
The words of Benjamin Franklin would be prophetic when he was asked about the outcome of the constitutional convention. He said yes, we have a constitutional republic, if you can keep it.
Let’s be honest, we are not perfect, but in no nation have so many enjoyed the freedoms and opportunities so many people have and hopefully will continue to have.
Our freedoms have been secured at a heavy price. Thousands have fought and died to secure and protect it. From the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, first and second World Wars, all the way to Iraq and Afghanistan, many Americans have fought and died for our freedoms.
Slavery is a black mark in our history. I have the greatest respect for civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis and others who advocated through peaceful demonstrations for civil rights.
However, the blacks didn’t free themselves. It took the efforts of abolitionist leaders both black and white and the death of 600,000-700,000 soldiers, both north and south, and the courage and leadership of president Abraham Lincoln to achieve.
Let’s be honest, there is racial injustice. However, this country has made great strides to deal with it. One of the best examples to deal with it is the one made by the people of Charleston, SC, who instead of rioting and burning down their city, came together and prayed together after four black church members, including their pastor, were shot during a prayer meeting by white supremecists. I can’t think of a better example of what this country needs.
Currently, the police in some of our communities are under attack by Marxists and anarchists. Some have followed along and are being led and deceived by them.
For political expediency, many Democrats have exploited this. Yes, there are some who don’t deserve to wear a badge, and there are unjusti fied shootings of both blacks and whites. However, the vast majority are hard working dedicated men and women who put their lives on the line every time they put on the uniform, badge, and strap on a gun to serve us.
In a few short weeks, we will have a presidential election which will decide the fate of our country.
The Democrats envision a society controlled by the government. They will tear up the Constitution, abolish the Bill of Rights. You will no longer have freedom of speech or religion or the right to lawfully possess guns. They’ll decide who have these rights.
They make empty, impossible promises like free health car, free tuition, transform the transportation system, an economy that provides high wages and benefits for everyone, a guaranteed income whether you work or not, in other words Utopia on earth.
In truth, these self righteous hypocritical deceivers enrich themselves at our expense.
Here are some examples.
Joe Biden threatens the president of Ukraine if he doesn’t fire the investigator who is investigating his son . He takes his son on a flight to China, millions are pouring into a phony bank account of his son. His family profits millions through corrupt business deals.
The Clintons are just the same. They have one of the worst records in Haiti with no accountability .
Just look at many of our major cities which are run by Democratic mayors. Consider New York City , Prior to mayor DeBlasilo, New York had a thriving economy. No longer so. Crime is running rampant, 300% increase, murder rate doubled. Under his no bail law, violent criminals are being released. The police force is being decimated.
Now contrast this to the Republicans under Trump’s presidency. America enjoyed one of the greatest economic recoveries in history. The list of his accomplishments is historic.
I will list just a few of his accomplishments: record low unemployment; the highest labor participation in history of blacks and hispanics; rebuilt the military; confronted North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un, missiles aren’t flying over Japan heading toward Hawaii; Killed the second in command in Iran general Qasem Soliemani who was responsible for the death of thousands of Christians and hundreds of US Soldiers; imposed tariffs on China, established fairer trade agreements (under the Obama-Biden administration, none of this happened, China was ripping us off).
In conclusion, the choice couldn’t be clearer. Keep Trump in office. Keep your freedom and prosperity.
Or, vote for Biden and Kamala Harris and go into a socialist, Marxist tyranny controlled by elitist hypocrites.

 Editor’s Note: Ukraine prosecutor Viktor Shokin was ousted for just the opposite reason than the Republican talking points say, he was ousted for NOT pursuing corruption cases. It had nothing to do with Biden’s son.
 Editor’s Note: Biden’s son had an unpaid position on the board of a financial company in China. He acquired a minority stake in the company after his father left office (factcheck.org).
 Editor’s note: Although many have criticized the Clinton Foundation’s handling of relief efforts in Haiti after the earthquake in 2010, the foundation’s role was not as direct as Republican talking points indicate; of the $30 million that the foundation itself raised, 100% went to relief efforts, the foundation took no overhead costs. The Foundation is active in Haiti and there are many projects both praised and criticized. (BBC)
 Editor’s note: Major crimes under Mayor Bill DiBlasio are actually down (via factcheck.org); and even counting a spike in murders this year, the murder rate is about “Half as high as it was in Guliani’s best year.” Bail reform did not eliminate bail, it restructured it, especially for misdemeanors and petty crimes (Washington Post).
