Discord & Dissension – Part I – Intro

As a retired educator, I have a great passion for political news and commentary. This new project by two blogging friends in America will, I’m sure, be a great success! Bravo!

Filosofa's Word

The year is 2020.  Ten days into the new year, and so much has already happened that we cannot keep up.  The world is teetering on the brink, and all thanks to one ‘man’:  Donald Trump.  Yes, that Donald Trump, the ‘man’ who sits in the White House, in the highest position of leadership in the nation, despite the fact that he lost the election by nearly 3 million votes.

The year is 2020, and the United States will be having an election on November 3rd, in just 298 days the people of this nation will head to the polls to cast their vote for their representative, some for their senator, and all for the next president.  Or will they?  In 2016, between 58% – 59% of eligible voters actually voted.  WHY?  Because …

  • Hillary Clinton was a woman
  • Hillary Clinton was not “warm and fuzzy”
  • Hillary Clinton…

  1. Hi, John. I went for many years without voting because I was convinced that our votes don’t count (as is evidenced by the man in the white house with 3 million votes less than his opponent.) I’m still not convinced it’s a worthwhile effort, but you can bet I will be voting this year! At least then I can bitch!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jan. I’m afraid many voters in democratic countries like yours and mine feel that voting is a waste of time. In 2016, the low voter turnout resulted in Trump’s victory. If there is a big voter turnout in 2020, then Trump and his Republican enablers will be buried! We citizens need to be more active so that the autocrats don’t get a free ride.

      1. I try not to mix my author page with political drama, but this is the venue in which you and I connect., and I appreciate you sharing this. I am now following them. I, too, hope we can change the vote this year. I can’t say “before it’s too late,” because we past that point. So, I will say, “before more damage is done.” 🤞🏼🙏🏼 ☮️ ❤️😊

          1. I don’t necessarily think he stole the office. I think the Democratic party made a poor choice in putting Hillary as his opponent because she had too much baggage with her husband and Benghazi and her emails and…and… Lol! I think the Republican citizens made an error in choosing Trump in the primaries because they got caught up in his fame and showmanship of not being politically correct. And I believe our independent citizens, who choose not to be part of either party, hated both choices, but they fell for the manipulations that took place through social media and the Russian interference and the news media. They felt that the government needed to be shaken up. Well, it’s definitely been shaken. Lol! I think those who voted for him who are not indoctrinated by him have seen the errors of their ways. I think they realize that he has divided our country more than it was before he entered office, and I only hope that they choose not to vote for him this time around.

            1. I don’t argue about your analysis, Yvette, but the Russian interference allowed him to steal the election. Funny how he repudiated the findings of the Intelligence community about the 2016 election but used the same folks to justify his recent assassination in Iraq. You’re right, he’s got to go before he starts a war.
