“Now we have Black and White elected officials working together. Today we have gone beyond just passing laws. Now we have to create a sense that we are one community, one family. Really we are the American family.” John Lewis
With so much happening around the country- protests FOR racial equality and protests AGAINST police brutality in virtually every major city, a pandemic that has killed 200K Americans, 33.3 million Americans unemployment, stocks plunging, and a circus-like political environment-America is in a state where things aren’t making much sense. But to me, there is a common denominator in all these occurrences -poor leaderSHIP from the current president. After all, he created and continues to contribute to ALL of this chaos and division. It was his divisive rhetoric that widened the racial divide that has led to these protests across the nation. It was his consent encouraging police officers to use extra force that has caused an increase in brutality cases. It was the precious time he spent convincing Americans that the pandemic was a hoax that caused the death of hundreds of thousand Americans. To me, it makes NO sense that he is even being considered to serve four more years. So for today’s blog, we are discussing why you can’t Make It Make Sense to me that we could even consider re-electing someone who has created chaos and division throughout the country. Let’s get at it. Let’s talk SHIP about why you can’t Make It Make Sense !!!
Make It Make Sense to me that before we allow someone to work on our cars or our home, we check their credentials to be certain that they are certified to do the work that we need to be done. Make It Make Sense to me how before going out to eat at a restaurant, we check their ratings and reviews to ensure that they serve quality foods. Make It Make Sense to me how before considering someone a friend or a mate, we check to see if they have shared qualities and beliefs. Make It Make Sense to me how before we proceed with decisions that may affect our lives, we do our research. We check. We do our due diligence to ensure that these services and/or people are compatible with our wants, desires, and needs. So Make It Make Sense to me why we don’t use these same exacting standards to elect a president. Based on the current president’s morals and qualities, Make It Make Sense to me how Americans could ever consider re-electing a president that doesn’t possess ANY of the qualities they’d require for most of their personal relationSHIPS. You can’t!!! You can’t Make It Make Sense !!
You can’t Make It Make Sense how a man who mocks persons with disabilities, is suitable to be president for 4 more years. You can’t Make It Make Sense how a man who incites fear and promotes racism, is fit to serve as the commander of chief in America. You can’t Make It Make Sense how a man that put a bounty on the heads of the military, and calls soldiers that have served and lost their lives defending this country –losers and suckers, could possibly be re-elected as president. You can’t Make It Make Sense how a man who speaks about women in a condescending, derogatory, insulting, and demeaning manner, could possibly serve another term. You can’t Make It Make Sense how a man that doesn’t know the definition of honesty and who has lied over 20,000 times since he took office, has a chance to be re-elected. You can’t Make It Make Sense how a man who colludes with leaders of foreign countries and is considered a traitor, may be re-elected. You can’t Make It Make Sense how a man who has had 12 of his top administration jailed because of criminal and corrupt behavior is not considered a criminal himself, is up for re-election instead of jail. You can’t!!! You can’t Make It Make Sense to me!!
As I get older, I realize that there are some things I’ll never understand. Things that I just can’t Make them Make Sense and considering him for re-election is at the top of that list. But, I know HOW we CAN Make It Make Sense. We can Make It Make Sense by voting for a president who reflects our morals, values, and beliefs as Americans. We can Make It Make Sense by voting for a president that is comprised of traits that lead to a sustained and mutual sense of honesty, empathy, comfort, love, and understanding. We can Make It Make Sense by voting for a president that will be truthful with us. One that has empathy. One that has walked in the shoes of the average American and understands and can feel what others are experiencing. We can Make It Make Sense by voting for a president that will focus less on differences and MORE on building harmony. We can Make It Make Sense by casting our vote on November 3rd, 2020 for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Let’s restore order to America. Let’s Make It Make Sense again!!!
