Critical race decisions

I mean local political races.

On the national and state levels, progressives have hijacked the Democratic Party and gone the Full Monty on naked socialism; and their “emperor” has no clothes. Biden and his administration have managed to crawl beneath my very low expectations by digging a trench. It shows in their current budget “omnibuster” bill: It’s their way or NOT the highway. Everything Biden and the Democrats have done is flies “on” the face of logic.

Wherever “Democrats” are in complete control at the national and state levels, disaster reigns or is on the horizon. My October 11, 2020 letter, “All elections are local” warned about that: “An impotent Biden presidency would be catastrophic enough, but a progressive Democrat-controlled Senate plus House would have cataclysmic consequences for our country. Look how progressive Democrats have run New York and California into ruin.” Look how they’ve run Seattle into ruin. This progressive cancer must be stopped.

Spokane already has a veto-proof progressive majority on our city council. We desperately need Mike Lish and Jonathan Bingle elected there for some balance. For similar reasons, we also need to elect Kata Dean and Darryl Geffken to the Spokane School Board.

Then next year we need to replace Patty Murray in the US Senate. The Washington State Republican Party has endorsed an outstanding candidate, Tiffany Smiley. Visit her website, and watch her video. She fought for veterans care reform; she’ll fight for us. Please donate.
