Trump/Hitler Similarities

We often hear Trump talk about his similarities to Lincoln, but I wonder if people know just how similar he is to Hitler. History was one of my favorite subjects in college, I studied both American and European historical periods. In the beginning, Trump appeared to have some Lincoln similarities. One of the main reasons the Civil War was fought was because slavery moved into states that were free states. Plantation owners were slowly moving into states that were free of slavery due to the Missouri Compromise. When these plantation owners moved to free states (illegally) to take over land, they would force working people into poverty.

Obama and Trump both saw similarities to the displacement of American workers which is what prompted stricter immigration laws. Prior to Obama coming into office President Bush and President Fox of Mexico encouraged dealings which led the way for illegal immigration to boom in America. Due to the economic crisis that took over around the end of the Bush years, people were tired. They then voted for Obama because at this point, unemployment was horrific.

Obama worked on immigration issues and he also worked on getting some of the hardest hit industries back on their feet. By the time Trump came in office, he was coming into a situation that was already in its healing process. We had a lot of jobs that were open, but sadly not a lot of people were trying to get back to work. https://www.factcheck.org/2016/07/obamas-numbers-july-2016-update/

So, after Obama, Trump enters office. He continues to build on what Obama has already placed into motion and then he doubles down on immigration. While his talking points in the beginning sound a lot like Obama and Lincoln, his actions seem to take a different turn into his presidency. He wages economic wars with rivals and secures business relationships from abroad with various countries. Some of those relationships come into question because of his businesses. Trump then puts tax laws in place to offer relief to those who earn the most while placing boundaries between the poor and well off. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/29/trump-suburban-voters-will-no-longer-be-bothered-by-low-income-housing.html

Not only is he placing boundaries in terms of where people are able to live, but he increased sentences on things that were once considered misdemeanors. https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/criminal-justice/reports/2020/02/03/480028/fact-sheet-trump-says-one-thing-another-criminal-justice/ To the naked eye, we hear the word reform and we get excited. However, after you read into the results of the reform, the excitement soon disappears.

As of today, we have Trump taking away unity training which helps to loosen the chains of racism and he has introduced a new form of History for our children. These are things that Hitler did when he was trying to perform a mindwipe on the citizens in Germany. If you are unfamiliar with the term mindwipe, it is a reset of everything you know. Hitler had his own group of people protecting his gatherings before he turned into the mass murderer we all know. Trump has also been quoted telling his Proud Boys to stand by. Trump is even on record talking about getting his own network together to go against FOX News because they did not spread more of his political messages to the public.

With all of these problematic behaviors, why were there so many people who voted for Trump? Could it be that we have a large number of Americans who want some form of a dictatorship? If we are not careful, Trump could send America to its first single party dictatorship which would shatter the America we know and love. Currently, Trump and his allies are trying to corrupt the sacred right of voting. They are using lies and anything else that they can use to have legal votes thrown out. A lot of the votes in Arizona that were labeled fraud came from military families that held that state as their home of record. Just a few articles to show you where we are on keeping up with misinformation.

Sadly, the list goes on and on. https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/525583-trumps-fraudulent-claims-about-voter-fraud There is a different lie each day and they keep getting thrown out of court. https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-donald-trump-politics-virus-outbreak-campaigns-22665ea3884c47f883b416e4bd03bf54 At this point, the behavior is a clear indicator that Trump is trying to use the courts to take away Biden’s Presidency. Due to the fact that his allies are mimicking the same claims, we can only conclude that they are part of this attempt to overthrow our pollical system. So, keep informed and stay safe.

Tomorrow iS the Day

I have been fairly silent these last few days okay maybe week because my nerves are shot. There is so much riding on this election and the idea of four more years of Trump is absolutely horrifying. I do not know what tomorrow will bring, but I can tell you, what is already in the works because of Trump. We will have thousands more infected with COVID because of his rallies. Some people with get lucky and have insurance that will help them bounce back, and others might not show any signs at all. However, for some people, this will mark their last November due to a virus that didn’t have to happen.

In a lot of minds people see this as the Democrat vrs the Republican. However, that is not the issue in 2020. We are not waring parties, we are people trying to regain our lives back. There are Republicans that will vote for Biden for the first time in their adult lives. They are doing it out of honor. We all have a duty to protect our sisters and brothers. A lot of us are getting that duty mixed up with the call for freedom. You can still be free and help protect yourself and others.

Tomorrow will be a nation altering day, no matter who wins. Trump has managed to get into hearts and turn them cold without remorse. While I do not know the damage that will be done, or the events to follow, I ask you all to pause and think about something. Before every calamity there is a second of reasoning. There is a moment of reflection that gives us the needed pause to figure out what comes next. What we do tomorrow will set the path for our entire nation. How we vote today will set the path for tomorrow. If you can be okay with leaders stoking anger in a country that is already on the edge of madness, then you must ask yourself, what does America mean to you?

America has always represented a safe haven from the colonial days until today. If we turn back on those values that make us protectors, we have lost the most important battle. Do not let this election suck your humanity out from under you. Be safe and God bless.

Schools With COVID IN Texas Are staying Open.

With cases showing up every few days, some Texas schools are refusing to close or switch to fulltime remote learning. This month we have had at least four different letters sent home about children with COVID-19. It is a very alarming situation which results in fear and anger amongst parents, like myself. At some point I would love to send my girls to school, but I do not see that happening. I do not blame the schools, I blame our leaders. When you check the dashboard, it doesn’t give up-to-date information. If you do not have a child in school or attached to the school, you wouldn’t even know how horrible the situation is getting.

These are 4 different letters, starting from the 15 of this month to the 26th of the month. Does this look under control to you?

Understanding Why There Is An enormous Chance For a Biden blow out

If you are wondering why the polls are looking in favor of former Vice President Joe Biden, look no further than the COVID-19 storm that soaked America. The storm has somewhat left the houses and is now standing in the lines waiting to cast their votes. You had the majority of people making sure they socially distanced and then another small group that seemed to want to poke fun at the group wearing their mask. While standing in line the first morning of voting, a young duo rudely cut in and disregarded the people who had been waiting behind them for hours. Some of these people waiting in line included wounded veterans like my husband. He had been pushing through the pain for hours. As the crowd made it to the doorway, the duo thought it was a good idea to take off their mask and try to gain entry into the building.

Here in Texas, there are counties under a mask mandate, and our county happens to be one of those mandated towns. As the election worker asked the duo to put their masks on, they insisted that they did not bring any face protection. They then stated that the mandate had ended and that the election workers did not know the law. I assure you, the mandate has not ended, but this is the driving force behind the votes that will be coming Biden’s way. After the disruption started to bleed into the people in line, the workers informed the duo that they would need to clear out the entire building if they did not have a mask. They went on to explain how this would take time, and it would be the only way they would be allowed to enter. They did not want to wait for the building to be cleared, so they pulled out their masks and put them on as they entered the building.

The duo entered the building with an angry group of voters standing in line, talking about how they lost friends and loved ones to COVID-19. The COVID-19 response spells out the reason for the blowout. When we hear about the more than 7 million people getting COVID-19, we zero in on the 200,000 lives snipped away; we do not think about the families of those people. For at least each person, we have to assume they had at least one family member. While not all cases of COVID were deadly as the 200,000 cases, they were still life-altering cases to some degree. Those cases came with mandatory isolation and quarantines that lasted for weeks.

For many people, the sickness produced results that either saw them cramped up in hospitals or numerous trips to the doctor for anything from breathing treatment medication to a barrage of oral medication. My own family dealt with a high fever for nearly nine days. We are talking about a fever that would send people to the hospital in normal circumstances. Meanwhile, as all of this is going on, we family members are taking note. We are looking at what our loved ones are going through, and one thought seems to keep coming to mind. It didn’t have to be this way.

Now, back to the numbers! As we stated, most likely, the 7 million cases had at least one family member and at least one friend. Now, if you take that number and multiply it by 3, you have twenty-one million people with lives directly caught up in COVID-19 cases. In most cases, these people had more than one family member, and I am willing to bet they had more than one friend. We are talking about co-workers watching their loved ones die, and at times families of 19 coming down with the virus.

We haven’t even started talking about the people who no longer have jobs due to the virus or the people who have seen their hours cut back due to COVID-19. After you add all of those people, the number quickly could be as high as 1/3 of the American population has seen hardships due to COVID-19. That is what I would consider a minimum. So, in my opinion, we are seeing this large surge for Biden because COVID-19 has treated America like a tsunami would treat a small island in its way. It has changed our cities, our culture, and the way we interact on a daily basis.

President Trump talks about Law and Order, but he fails to understand that there is an enormous population of this country undergoing a very grueling pandemic. While some might view the fight as being almost over, I can assure you, the ones dealing with COVID right now do not see it that way. What are your thoughts?
