Republicans, time to “put up or shut up”. Are you serious about preventing mass shootings? Are you serious about mental health as the true cause? If so, are you willing to spend money (without increasing deficits) to address that issue? Democrats, can you look beyond gun laws as the only solution – and avoid advocating radical proposals (like confiscating legally-purchased weapons)? Can you instead support a bipartisan solution that might actually WORK? Final question: do you both have enough courage to DO something together – before mentally ill mass shooters kill HUNDREDS MORE innocent Americans?
Recent mass shootings in Atlanta and Boulder focused U.S. attention again – temporarily – on gun issues. More have occurred since then (in California and Texas, among others), but received less attention; maybe because numbers of deaths were fewer – or maybe because Americans were numbed by the carnage, yet again.
Recent shootings in Atlanta and Boulder remind us innocent people (potentially, any of us or our loved ones), simply going to the grocery store or to work, might never return home. Boulder police officer Eric Talley never did, to his wife and seven children – after bravely confronting a shooter to save others.
America now needs moderation and healing, requiring bipartisanship. Joe Biden seems uniquely suited to lead us toward that – if Democrats will let him, and Republicans will join him. If they won’t, let THEM be the ones who blow it.
Does Perdue’s reluctance to debate indicate he has something to hide? You would think he’d be eager to tout all the positive things he claims he’s accomplished for everyday Georgians.
There is a lot at stake in the January 5th runoff elections for Georgia’s two senate seats. No surprise, both sides are launching expansive ground games and spending hundreds of millions of dollars on these campaigns. Incumbent Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler alone is reportedly spending $20 million of her own money.
Moderates, don’t allow political fiction to become political fact. Visualize an emboldened, unleashed 2nd-term Trump – then VOTE accordingly.
TMM reminds Moderates that candidates’ positions rarely match 100% of our own. A better question: all things considered, which candidate is more likely to lead our country in directions I want us to go? Ponder that one, Moderates – then VOTE.
TMM believes America needs TWO truthful, believable parties to balance each other and compete in the political marketplace. Unfortunately, while the once-proud GOP remains the newly-rebranded COT (Cult of Trump), that’s not the case. Moderates, consider that – and VOTE.
President Trump and Republicans, time to “put up or shut up”. Are you serious about preventing mass shootings? Are you serious about mental health as the true cause? If so, are you willing to spend money (without increasing deficits) to seriously address that issue? Likewise, Democrats. Can you look beyond more gun laws as the only solution – and stop advocating (as one presidential candidate has) radical ideas like confiscating weapons Americans purchased legally? Can you instead support a bipartisan solution that might actually WORK?
