A couple of months ago I was confident that Trump would be defeated by Biden in a close election.
Today I am confident that Trump will beat Biden in a close election.
In my opinion, post-election analysis will show what defeated Biden was “Black Lives Matter”. Peaceful protests are effective; violent protests are counter-productive. They work against the cause. “Black Lives Matters” organizers have demonstrated they do not have the leadership skills needed to ensure the protests are peaceful. Sadly, there is no Martin Luther Kings in their leadership. I am beginning to think that there is no leadership in “Black Lives Matter” movement. A group without a leader quickly becomes a mob. That is what has happened to this movement.
Democrats are not doing themselves a favor by only giving lip service to the condemnation of the violence and particularly the looters.
No one wants Donald J. Trump defeated more than me. I think he is destroying the country and he will lead the United States forward an autocratic government if he has four more years.
I also think that he is going to get those four years if the Democrats do not step up an address the “Black Lives Matters” PROBLEM.
In my opinion drastic actions is require NOW. A recent poll shows that 60% of the people in the poll think that “COVID-19” will decide the election while 40% think “civil unrest”. If things don’t change, I see that quickly moving in the direction of “civil unrest.”
Here is my advice to Democrats and anyone else what wants Trump defeated. Raise you voice and condemn the “Black Lives Matters” protests in their current form. Do not tolerate violence
If I were in change these are some of the things I would do.
I believe looters are hurting the Democratic ticket more than anything. Each time the news media shows video of looters in stores taking merchandise, Biden loses thousands of votes. Stopping looters is mandatory for Biden to have a chance of winning.
So first, I would order the police to use rubber bullets on looters leaving buildings with merchandise.
I realize to some mayors are whims and won’t take this action, so I have a less effective but more humane option. I would use a technique that has proven effective in other countries. I would spray indelible blue dye on anyone leaving a looted building. I would use drones to video these lootings from multiple angles. At the first daylight I would begin arresting the “blue people”. Even better, use option 1 and 2 both.
People that want Biden to win the election should not give aid and comfort to looters. They are not working with you; they are working against the Democratic Party. Turn them into the police.
I will stop with item one on my list for now because I believe that unless looting is stopped before voting starts – the looters will be giving the election to Trump.
Everyday people daily accuse me of being a Democrat because I dislike Trump. I have never been a Democrat because I believe the Democrats have a track record of not acting forcefully at critical times. Now the time, perhaps the last time, they will have an opportunity to prove me wrong.
