Biden will work to restore nation for all
Joe Biden’s message, “Restoring the soul of America” obviously resonated with the majority of voters. Biden brings to the presidency a personal integrity and distinguished career in the senate and as vice president. He’s a centrist with a record of working across the aisle.
That said, over 73 million Americans pulled the lever for Donald Trump rejecting Biden’s effort to unify a very divided country.
From my vantage point, these voters found reason to overlook Trump’s palpable character flaws, his authoritarian tendencies, concessions to racists and his disdain for the rule of law and institutional norms. Moreover, they accepted his calamitous failure to control the deadly coronavirus plunging us into a deep recession.
We have lost over 250,000 lives and recorded more COVID-19 cases than any other nation. We have a fatality rate of 75 deaths per 100,000 cases compared to the likes of South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and New Zealand, all of which reported less than one death per 100,000 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University.
While their economies were all hurt early on, they have managed to recover, with South Korea and Taiwan showing strong growth, according to the WSJ.
Joe Biden recognizes the importance to reach out to the 73 million Trump voters. He will not overlook their concerns. I’m optimistic that his decency and principled leadership together with his reliance on science, proven economic practices, and other sensible policies will hit home with these voters, rein in the virus and begin to restore the soul of America.
Dems and media are exploiting covid
I have said from the beginning of this “so-called pandemic” that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other so-called leaders were not right, and they were using pandemic to help bail their states out of the debt they and their legislators put us in. Supreme Court Justice Alito backs this up.
Plus, having the people just roll over, and give up their freedom is not American, and dead wrong. Dr, Anthony Fauci, it is now learned, has been wrong, (no surprise). People are not meant to be cooped up, and being told how to think and act for themselves.
Not in America. No matter what the media says and Democratic leaders say, they are ones who helped cause all this chaos out of hatred of Trump, and greed—period. All you foreigners, and a lot of citizens, better brush up on what made our nation great. It was not socialism. There are no free rides. Work, get an education and be prepared to fight for your country.
Want the truth? Stop watching Fox
An increasing number of opinion writers seem to be confused and angry that The Gazette is not echoing the stories of Antifa violence, massive voter fraud, Trump victories over covid and left-wing conspiracies which they see on Fox News.
Folks, the explanation is simple: Fox News is a highly political money-making entertainment network that is not concerned with facts or truth. The Gazette is attempting to present factual news. Fox misinformation will not align with Gazette news. If your false reality is stressing you out, you may turn off Fox.
Stand up for your right to gather
People have to stand up for their rights.
There is no way that people should shut down their business or limit the number of people that can come into their homes. If arrested, they just plead not guilty and demand a jury trial. The courts will become overloaded and no sane jury will find them guilty. Area sheriffs have more sense than many of our political leaders.
