Two weeks until election day and there are still undecided voters?

Two weeks until election day and there are still undecided voters?

It was early on the morning of November 9, 2016. I was too distraught to go to sleep. The sun was still a few hours from rising. Even in that dark time, I knew who I would be voting for, or actually against, in the presidential election of 2020. I had no idea who would be the Democratic nominee. It could have been Bernie, Elizabeth, Kamala, Joe, maybe Hillary again, or possibly one of ten or more other choices. It didn’t matter. I was voting for whoever and really it was against the man who just became the President-elect of the United States….Donald Trump.

You’re probably thinking, ‘way to give the man a fair chance’ and under normal circumstances, you’d be right. But, there was nothing normal about Trump back then. He showed us who he was during the year-long campaign he ran to win the presidency. You think it’s normal to ridicule a handicapped journalist? You think it’s normal to trash a Gold Star family. You think it’s normal to talk about dick size with a sitting U.S. Senator during a debate? You think it’s normal to call another Senator’s wife ugly and accuse his father of being a participant in the JFK assassination?

You think this is normal:

 “I moved on her, actually. You know, she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and fuck her. She was married. I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look. 
Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Nothing normal about any of this, we knew all about it before election day and he still won.

They say that when someone shows you who they really are, believe them. Donald Trump showed us then and I believed him. I still do. That’s why I made my voting decision early. Extremely early!!

With Donald Trump, it’s an either/or thing. You either love him or you hate him. There’s nothing subtle about him. There’s no nuance with him. He doesn’t have layers that you have to unfold to figure out who he really is. Who he is is right in your face.

So, how is it possible there are undecided voters at this stage of the campaign? Two weeks left to go and people are still making up their minds? REALLY?! Is there anything that can possibly change your mind about either candidate? If it turned out that everything about Hunter Biden is true, would that change your mind about voting for his father? If you heard that Donald Trump was leaving all his money to a children’s health organization, would that change your mind? Do any of the candidate’s rallies have any effect on the voters? Will anything you hear at Thursday’s final presidential debate make any difference at all, or will it be a two hour waste of everyone’s time?

At this time, almost forty states have begun the early voting period. Almost twenty-million voters have made their choice. It’s a record breaking number of early ballots being cast. People are waiting in hours long lines to vote. Some of it is because of the pandemic, but much of it is because most of us have already made our voting decision. But there are apparently some undecided voters. You see them on cable news channel focus groups.  I can’t figure them out. The choice is clear….on both sides.

So, if you’re really undecided, what are you waiting to hear? What is going to help you make that ultimate decision? You better make your mind up soon. Two weeks is a short amount of time. It’s just going to feel like it’s two years.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
