Bring Back Checks and Balances: GO VOTE and VOTE for DEMOCRATS.

If you have not seen this Washington Post report, you should give it a look before you go to the polls on Tuesday.

The occupant of the Oval Office has told so many lies that the media he loves to malign keeps count of them. His supporters are easy on him as they seem to have as little regard for truth as he does. Demagogues have never done it by themselves. They have always needed willing followers who, for whatever reasons, were just fine with the lies.

According to the Washington Post Fact Checker, they have documented 6,420 false or misleading claims by the president through October 30. And in the month preceding the coming election, his fib rate has gone up to 30 a day.

If this election does not change the balance of power between the executive and congress, he will continue another two and maybe six years completely unbridled. That means he will continue to stir up the worst impulses of his followers.

He personally insults me every time he refers to Democrats as an angry mob intent on opening the borders to criminals and terrorists. It would feel good to engage in a little name-calling but why play his game? I will let him do the name-calling and you can look and listen for yourself.

I volunteer as a photographer for our local community theater. I have opinions about politics and believe it should be every American's duty to become informed and participate in the discussion of issues. I began this blog to be able to stay in touch in ways I used to on Facebook. I deleted that account recently and hope to be able to share photographs and information relating to cultural and political events in our community. I am retired after a career in social work and post-secondary​ education.
