The deaths toll tens of thousands. Other than the investor class, the economy is in a shambles with small businesses on their last legs. Unemployed, people cannot pay their rent, make mortgage payments, put food on the table. Unemployment compensation is disappearing. And Yet!
You, corporate America, have done nothing to sway President Trump or the Republicans to save the working class and small businesses. I have a question for you.
WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO BUY YOUR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES?
In the past you could rely on world markets when the economy slowed. This is a global pandemic. You have nowhere else to go.
To grow the economy we need to solve the Covid-19 crisis. What have you done to force President Trump and the Republicans to save your consumer’s lives?
To grow the economy we need small businesses and their employees. What have you done to force Trump and the Republicans to help small businesses and their workers survive to rebuild an economy on the other side of this virus?
I realize that you do not have any interest other than profit, but if you do not force President Trump and the Republicans to immediately come up with and pass a package like the “Heros” package; there will be no profit for a long time.
As for the investor class they will continue to inflate and deflate stock prices until, with the country in a shambles, someone looks behind the cortain and sees that the market is based only on smoke and mirrors. There will not be a black Friday; there will be a black year.
It is not too late for you to step up. Politicians cannot suvive without your donations; with even a hint of donations drying up Mitch and the Republicans will move, not to save the country, but to save their own fortunes.
NOW WOULD BE THE TIME TO ACT IN YOUR OWN SELF INTEREST AND THE INTERESTS OF YOUR STOCKHOLDERS.
If you are an average American worker, a vet, a homeless person, on Social Security, on Medicare, on Medicaid, a school child, a doctor, or a nurse; you don’t count
Look at the question a different way.Who can donate large sums of money to most Republican and some Democratic politicians?Those are the people that count.
If all those people who don’t count (you and I) vote, will Republicans ever win an election?
Putting a finer point on it, allowing this virus to kill those in nursing homes, on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid (essentially the elderly, the poor and in need) will be great for one political party. The Republicans have announced that this is their policy publicly and often. The Republican Party has not denounced these policies.
Remember Wisconsin and how the Republicans tried to steal that election by endangering the lives of the citizens by making the citizens choose between voting and the virus.
For years Republicans have been whispering about and agreeing among themselves about the need for “culling the herd”. They are now openly calling for it.
What does that phrase mean? It means that we must get rid of those of our citizens who, even though they have contributed to our country all their lives and even though they have fought for our nation, are no longer “working”. These people are retired or ill.
What the Republican Party is advocating is to let the carona virus wash over these populations! Let them die the horrible death of the carona virus.
Who do they want to let the virus kill? These people they want culled are your parents, your grand parents, your spouses your children, your grand children. Allowing this virus to cull these people will save money being used for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Meals on Wheels and feeding our starving children.
THIS IS HOW THE REPUBLICAN PARTY INTENDS TO BALANCE THE BUDGET ON THE BACKS OF YOUR FAMILIES.
THIS IS GENOCIDE!
THIS IS PATRICIDE!
THIS IS MATRICIDE!
Will you support these politicians? If you do, you share in the guilt! Sorry, but that is the truth of the matter. The choice is yours.
Or will it turn out that Trump followed the model of his great Chinese friend and very smart Chinese leader who had heard some people say this was no large deal and would pass and return to zero like a magic miracle.
The Republican Party unnecessarily exposed their citizens to Covid-19 because they knew that in a high turn out election they would lose. This is an admission by Republicans in Wisconsin but other states and the President as well.
Prepare to have to fight to cast your vote. Fight we have to and fight we will. Republican, Democrat and Independent all are entitled to vote without the threat of Covid-19 or physical or emotional threat.
If fight we must, then fight we will for all citizens to be able to vote.
