The 2020 Presidential Election; the Candidates, the Campaigns, the Conventions - a Thorough Vetting

I took an interest in Politics at a very young age. The Goldwater-Johnson race fascinated me and I've been paying attention ever since.

They both have very nice smiles.

They both have very nice smiles.

Joe Biden

Throughout the campaign, I heard the words "integrity", "tried and true", "trustworthy", among many other complimentary adjectives...when Joe Biden was the topic of discussion.

As I channel surfed, checked social media and the current headlines, while waiting in line at the grocery store, Biden and Harris were definitely all the rage, the hot topic of newsrooms everywhere.

It got me to thinking...if that were the case, if Joe Biden was all of the wonderful things that his biggest fans {mainstream media} continually try to convince us he is, wouldn't Joe Biden and his handlers have spoken out against the destruction and mayhem which was taking place in many cities, by his supporters, over many months?

Shouldn't a "man of integrity" and an "accomplished woman", have spoken out against the atrocities that their voters/supporters were out participating in, subjecting their base to, in many democratically-run cities?

Wouldn't you think a "tried and true" Biden team would have spoken out against the looting of businesses of the people...people of all races, creeds and colors - as their American dream, their life's work...was being destroyed, oftentimes, in the course of one single day?

Wouldn't you think.....

  • Mr. Integrity, Joe Biden, would have spoken out against the constant targeting and relentless harassment of our Police Officers?

Wouldn't you think.....

  • He would have come to the aid, "in a tried and true" manner, of the many innocent citizens; whether they were just attempting to have a peaceful dinner at a street cafe or whether they were trying to save or salvage what was left of their looted businesses, from being yelled at, threatened, spat upon, cursed and assaulted by their 'neighbors', paid agitators...whatever they were?

Wouldn't you think....

  • As good Samaritans were mocked and pummeled, for attempting to do the right thing, by protecting innocent bystanders from angry mobs, wouldn't you think that Mr. "Trustworthy" Biden, might have been trusted to have something to say about all of the madness long before...

he finally did speak out.

The hate groups, in the streets, which continually terrorized many cities, go by many names; primarily, Antifa and BLM and rest assured, for there is no doubt, they're Biden/Harris supporters!

They made it more than crystal clear, worked into a tizzy by the corrupt media and the Dem Party, as all of that hate was directed at President Trump

All of that hate was directed at President Trump's supporters and they still hate everything that makes America, America and if Biden/Harris supporters are/were indirectly affected along the way, by their hate, so be it!

They are anarchists and Marxists and social justice warriors first and foremost and they totally and fully support the Biden/Harris team because they know that Team Biden/Harris has no intentions of standing in their way or stopping them in their 'Destroy America' efforts!

They (Biden/Harris) had the biggest platform with the biggest audience, all eyes were upon them, at their convention (most likely, the biggest audience they ever had throughout the campaign) and yet, they didn't speak out against it, by calling it what it was, what it is, contemptible!

In fact, they didn't say a single word about any of it

They were much too busy doing what the left does best, bashing the President (now former) tearing down America and insulting Trump supporters.

There were no glowing endorsements of America, nothing in particular, seemed to stand out, shine through, as something great pride may be taken in.

All they could manage, were weak attempts at portraying President Trump as the boogeyman and of taking the boogeyman out!

There were no new ideas expressed, no excitement whatsoever, only negativity

What better way to wrap up my thoughts on the Democratic Convention, other than to say - 'This was your sign' America!

Donald Trump

Yes, I am biased, I am a lifelong conservative, I'll not pretend otherwise, but what a contrast, once the Republican Convention got underway.

Around the same time, over four years ago, I had no interest in either Convention, I was not a fan nor a big supporter of Donald J. Trump, I was all in for Senator Ted Cruz and I was disappointed.

That wasn't meant to be...and so, I kept an open mind and waited to see what Trump would do next.

Was he in over his head?

Did he truly want to be there?

Well, he did not disappoint, I was won over right away, especially when witnessing the lengths that the establishment, D.C. swamp dwelling, sponge-like career politicians, sucking all of the life out of D.C....were/are willing to go, to get rid of him!

Their criminal behavior and belief that they were/are somehow above it all; certainly high above the people and the people's wishes for the best interest of this country, only managed to turn me into one of his biggest supporters, one with a voice and a pen, that I have never been afraid nor the least bit hesitant to use!


All of that being said, the differences between the Democratic Convention and the Republican Convention were like night vs. day, darkness vs. light. Hate vs. love!

The differences between the two parties and the two men running for the office of the Presidency are as reflected, in the two conventions.

Donald Trump, from day one, gushed over this Country!

He and Mike Pence are proud and patriotic, lovers of America, no doubt about it and that was displayed throughout their four years.

Their pride and patriotism was on full display throughout the Republican Convention.

Thankfully, for us, the President wasn't so busy gushing that he neglected his duties. Quite the contrary, every single day we heard the stories; we saw just the tip of the iceberg, with the parade of citizens sharing their real life stories and giving the {now former} President full credit for the turn-around in their very real lives.

It should be evident to everyone at this point, that he was not a fluke, he didn't run on a dare or because he lost a bet. It wasn't a bucket list thing to do, he felt as if he could do it better than failed career politicians ...and he did, in spades!

It was evident from the get-go and throughout, how he feels about this Country, the greatest Country that God gave man and it is evident that millions of us, feel the same.
Proud of what we have built here, not wanting destructive transformation or any form of socialism/communism.

We know history and we know there isn't anything on the dark side that will bring anything other than...pure misery!

2020 was a tough year...we were knocked down a couple flights of stairs by a pandemic and the chaos that did bring, but I believe that most individuals are resilient and so...they get back up, they dust themselves off and they keep working to gain or regain, that which has been delayed or stalled, their partiular American dream!

The Death of the Democratic Party

The Death of the Democratic Party

The Demise of the Dem Party

I think it is fair to say that the Democratic Party is no more; (not sure what to call it... there are a few figure heads, but that's all they are at this point!

They have succumbed -

Wittingly or unwittingly, they have allowed for a takeover; one that is moving at warped {and I do mean "warped" on many levels} speeds, flying passed socialism, right smack dab into the eye of a full-blown communism storm a brewing!

That in which, the greatest majority of this Nation wants no part of, will not stand for and most definitely will not fall in line with...far from it!

If this is allowed to will not end well!

I am sad to say that we did not nip it in the bud as I prayed, hoped, believed we would in 2018 and in 2020

  • We must never stop speaking out against the party formerly known as the Democratic Party, whenever and wherever we can!

I know for a fact, that all lifelong Democrats are not on board with this drastic move to the far left and completely understand that none of this, can be easy for them, but where are they?

Are they speaking out now?

I can't hear them.

Those in denial...pretending that this was just another election, no different than any before, with plans to support their Party no matter what...for that mindset, I have no sympathy for whatsoever, in what you have brought upon yourselves.

What else do you all need, a firm plant upside the head with the Communist Manifesto!?

Our choice this past year, (Election 2020) could not have been any more clear and Trump should have won by the largest margin in recorded history.

No contest.

I am praying for all involved in the handling of future elections and for the citizens of this Country to be prayerful and mindful of what is at stake....if it's not too late already!

God Bless America!

Sorry T, I didn't realize that Admin. denied all of your comments (with the exception of one) and left it to appear as if I am talking to myself....

This is STILL America is it not? Oh that's may not be the right person to ask.....

Don't see anything controversial about anything you have written, but what can you do.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on August 28, 2020:

Oh gosh! I think Mrs. Harris settled down with time...well, with that aspect of her life, that is! There's definitely nothing "settling" about Kamala Harris! She is as radical as they come and poor Joe is just along for the ride.

Oh...and then, there's this, more from BLM, aka: Biden/Harris supporters in action:


A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on August 28, 2020:

Thanks T, appreciated! I had to tone it down a bit, my real rant was on FB this morning ;) (are you on FB?)

Did you see this by chance, Biden/Harris supporters, in action....aren't they precious?

T on August 28, 2020:

Sorry AB, I meant to say this but I had to run when I posted that last comment.

Your article is superb, you tell it like it is, brief and to the point! To disagree with anything you said would beg to ask the question “What are you smoking?“ although I would think even a pothead would have to admit everything you say is right on!

The writing is on the walls of the homes and businesses the “protestors” destroyed, Trump 2020!
