Republicans: Enough Of Your Gimmicks. Change Is Coming.

Early last month, around March 5th, I wrote an article titled “Would An Alien Invasion Unite Us?” I was inspired by the Epix Channel’s new TV series “War of the Worlds”, and with my fondness of classic horror films of the 1930s-1950s, the idea of that article came to me.

Surprisingly after my article came out, quite by accident, I ran into a Facebook post that was directed to someone else. The author of that post was saying that Progressives care more about alien invasions than trying to help our veterans with their problems. Folks I thought to myself, wherein the hell in his ass did this Trumplican pull that out of? I ignored it and thought to myself; “Here we go again, using their fake ass concern for the well being of our military as a gimmick.”

Because of their monumental fear of the face of America becoming less and less White, Republicans have adopted the “Southern Strategy” and put it on steroids, ever since President Barack Obama was elected for two terms. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this gimmick that Republicans have used so very well, Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson so eloquently described it. He said, “If you can convince the lowest White man he’s better than the best-colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pockets. Hell, give him someone to look down on and he will empty his pockets for you.” This was way back in the 1960s. The major boogeyman de jour were Black people. Wealthy Whites know this for a fact, and for decades up to the present, poor and middle financial class Whites think that wealthy Republicans care about them because they share the same shade of skin. But now other boogeymen are sharing the stage with Black people. They are LGBTQs, Latinos, Asians, indigenous people, Muslims, Jews, etc…

During these challenging times, the gimmick of blaming LGBTQs for whatever disaster happens in this country is front and center again. Things would go a lot smoother if Republicans would practice what is on paper of “all men are created equal” and “separation of church and state.” I firmly believe Trump and his goon squad are not stupid. They are just pure evil.

I don’t know about you all, I am done trying to appeal to them. They have no desire to do the right thing. They see us like scum and not deserving of our civil rights as bona fide Americans. Our civil rights are not theirs for them to give or take away.

The true power we as Progressive minded people have is the right to vote. Trumplicans are using their age-old gimmicks of voter oppression, deflection, and projection games to fool the masses. Don’t waste your power. Let’s come together united to vote Trump and every member of his goon squad who holds office out in November.
