Republicans have you believing that going back to 1954 is better.

The debate last night involving John Fetterman and some surgeon-turned-salesman might have you believe that the one candidate seemed unfit because of a speech issue. That shift in focus is to blur your vision of what is happening on the other side — criminals are running up and down the ballots of Republicans.

Election deniers and January 6th criminals are on the ballot for offices all across the country. Their names all appear next to the tag: “Republican.” Having a red chamber in a Town, County, State, or Federal jurisdiction has always been disastrous and leads to decades of decay. My hometown is proof. I live seventy miles north of New York City in a bright red county. Growth, forward-thinking and beautiful towns are all within 30 minutes — they just aren’t here.

Dr. Salesman would also like you to believe that fracking is the issue. Fracking is going the way of coal. An investment in this will fail within a decade. Oil will be dead once your local utility converts to non-fossil-based fuels, and the majority of cars no longer use gasoline. The decline of coal has already laid out this blueprint. Coal mining collapsed once electric companies converted to natural gas. Looking for oil by tearing up the ground will become nothing but a massive bill for municipalities as they look to clean up the toxic amount of waste that was pumped into underground streams. Only fools would poison their own wells. But that is what Dr. Salesman and the rest of the Red Scourge are selling you.

What Democrats need to do is vote. Grab your kids, give your neighbor a lift and get to the polls. A Red vote is against your own interest.

In 2008, a bumbling George Bush was incapable of making a decision to save every job in the Automobile industry. They issued almost $1 trillion to bail out the banks. Almost none of that money came back. Our national bank, The Federal Reserve, bought nearly every dollar of bad loans from them, which is still on their books. Somehow, Dr…
