My blue collar grandfather doing assembly at Eberhard Manufacturing, back in the day.

Okay, let’s be honest, I am a relatively liberal guy and I have been voting mostly democratic my whole life.

Now it is incumbent upon me to vote the straight ticket. It will not always be easy as I have a few democrats I would like to send packing.

I feel as if I have no choice in the matter.

My roots are democratic; my family was and still is relatively blue collar. My grandfather lost his job with the railroads when strikebreaking was the thing of the day and he, rebellious person he was, was striking.

Why straight democratic?

Take a look at our situation and see that our government is in a shambles and its decisions are nothing short of frightening. Are there good republicans? Yes, one of them just passed away recently, a true patriot and leader, John McCain was. There are also many republican collaborators. Collaborators they are and we must thus call them.

I hope that they rot in hell. Too bad I don’t believe in the existence of this hell. As Jean-Paul Sartre said, if I may paraphrase, Hell is the people we are surrounded by. Look at these individuals as they act like toadies and cozy up to a leader whose clear idol must have been German and with the first name of Adolph.

Take Paul Ryan, who has vacillated back and forth in his love affair with our fearless leader and allowed the horrible things like children being taken from their mothers, never to see them again, and did NOTHING!

So, as far as I am concerned, my current major effort in life is to do all that I can to see the powers that be put into the cabinet of history where their malignant behavior will be put to shame. They have nothing to be proud of and deserve to relegate the rest of their lives to total atonement for the atrocities committed against the American people and its system.
