We The People Are Responsible For Those We Elect

Last week, “We The People”  have gone to the Polls in 15 states on what we call “Super Tuesday.” Primary elections are being held across this country. Candidates are being set in place to run in the November General Election.

While there appears to be much concern about the Republican Party which no longer appears to be concerned with its role in our two party system, nor the blatant disregard for the oath of office those holding office took when they pledged to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” against all enemies “foreign and domestic”, it appears that too many Americans have forgotten who elected those who seem determined to destroy democracy as we know it.

The Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement is not representative of the majority of the American people. But this fraction can overthrow our present system of government if those of us who disagree with them refuse to come out and vote them out of office.

Please know that Joe Biden is not the model for the presidency. He has not done all that he could for the very Black vote that gave him the presidency. He failed to get the United States Senate to break the filibuster and pass the George Floyd and John Lewis Acts.

After more than 36 years in the Senate and eight years as vice president of the United States, he couldn’t do as his predecessor, Lyndon Baines Johnson, did and use the power of the presidency to bring change. In spite of his weaknesses, he is better than the alternative who would help out enemies like Russia, and North Korea while using his office for personal revenge as he has promised, rather than serving America.

We the people must vote from now through the November General Election to remove from office in each state those persons whose track records do not reflect our concerns for immigration and our borders, nutrition and childcare for our children as well as affordable drug prices for those in need.

We must help the homeless among us and continue the Build Back Better and Inflation Reduction Acts we have seen in the last four years. We must not elect another office holder at any level who puts former President Donald Trump before their Oath of Office to the Constitution of the United States and the people who elected them.

America, this could well be our last wake-up call as our allies study how seriously we take our pledge to support them as opposed to having a president who will encourage our enemies to attack those who he thinks have not paid their dues to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

We must re-elect a president who understands Article 5 and our responsibilities which could place this nation in World War III if not handled properly. The vote starts right here at home wherever home is for you and you are personally responsible for our future and those who get in office to determine that future.

Vote like your life depends on it because it really does.
