Choice to make at poll obvious

To say I was taken aback by the first presidential debate would be a severe understatement. While all three debaters left much to be desired, I was stunned that pollster Frank Luntz, who watched with a cadre of unsure voters, tweeted, “This debate has actually convinced some undecided voters to not vote at all.”

If you’re waiting for the outcome of a Democratic National Committee media-rigged presidential debate to decide who to vote for, you haven’t been paying attention to: the three-year special council investigation and impeachment circus, funded by President (Donald) Trump’s political opponents in 2016; the three years of historic economic growth; the record low unemployment, especially for women and minorities; and the economic bounce-back after a pandemic that blue-state governors exploited to seize political power by wreaking havoc on their states’ economies.

If we could clone Boulder City and repopulate America with its DNA, what a great country we would have. President Trump would overwhelmingly be re-elected with the highest voting turnout in history. Naturally, this is not possible. However, if every voter votes in person or via absentee ballot, I believe President Trump will win in a landslide.

The major problem facing our country this election cycle is the mail-in ballot. The Democrats scream that if President Trump can mail in his ballot, so can Joe and Jane Citizen. Therein lies a nuance (a subtle difference in or shade of meaning).

The Democrats want you to believe a mail-in ballot and an absentee ballot are the same. They are not. One must request an absentee ballot and verify their identity. Mail-in ballots are being sent to millions of folks unsolicited. Furthermore, ballot harvesting these mail-in ballots is an ongoing process fraught with fraud and political chicanery.

The choices this time are obvious. A vote for Joe Biden to be 46 is a vote for Kamala Harris to be 47. In my opinion, Biden doesn’t have the stamina or the mental acuity to last more than a few months. Do you want three different presidents in 2021? I don’t.

Abraham Lincoln said, “How many legs does a dog have if you call his tail a leg? Four. Saying that a tail is a leg doesn’t make it a leg.” Just because one names their organizations “Black Lives Matter” and “Antifa” doesn’t mean black lives matter or “antifa” means anti-fascist. However, it is ironic that Antifa tactics are fascist in nature.

Black lives matter, but the Black Lives Matter organization is a self-admitted Marxist organization that has violently inflicted mayhem on many cities this summer. If BLM has improved the life of one black person or one black-owned business, I haven’t seen it.

If Biden-Harris win the White House, their party will eliminate charter schools and other choices in education. Furthermore, your children and grandchildren will be indoctrinated by BLM and their like-minded confederates within the teachers’ unions and other organizations.

A Biden-Harris White House will undo the economic gains of the Trump-Pence White House and push us to the brink of socialism. Their policies will give a caste-like system a solid foothold in our society. Few will have an opportunity for upward advancement.

Abraham Lincoln also said, “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

I believe that most of the American people see through the Democratic Party and their stenographers in the media.

If you’re part of the majority that have made up their minds this election cycle, please remember that in addition to voting for President Trump, we must flip the House of Representatives to a Republican majority. (Neither Nevada senator is up for re-election).

Early voting starts on Oct. 17. If you haven’t made up your mind yet, please do not vote.

Appointment raises questions

Last week, City Council members terminated the employment contracts for City Manager Al Noyola and City Attorney Steve Morris.

Mail-in ballots problematic

If you don’t believe mail-in ballots are a problem, think again. My wife and I became permanent Boulder City residents when we moved from California five years ago. We own property here and have Nevada driver’s licenses. We have no connection to California whatsoever and haven’t for five years.

City must move forward in unity

What Boulder City needs right now is a giant bandage.

More than two parties needed to effect change

The first ballot I cast in a presidential election was in 1972 — Nixon versus McGovern. I also served as an election judge, which is what they were called in Illinois. In Nevada, the term is poll worker (also known as election board officer). Times were different then — no computers, no voting machines, only paper ballots in my precinct.

Importance of newspapers celebrated

Make your vote count

From the very beginning of our country, voting for those who will govern us has been an intrinsic principle.

Fight against virus must continue

As we enter into the fall season, the number of new COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations in Clark County has been decreasing gradually over the past few weeks. Gov. Steve Sisolak has issued new guidelines as a result that allow the few businesses still closed in Boulder City to reopen. The governor is closely following the advice from health experts when issuing the guidelines. Our city government is then following the guidelines to slow the spread of the virus.

What are you going to vote for?

I’m not asking “who” you are voting for. I’m asking “what” you voting for. When we cast our ballots this November, we won’t be casting our votes for an individual, even though it seems like it. We will be casting our votes for an ideal, a concept of democracy for our nation’s republic.

Congress has way to fix unemployment problems

Folks don’t like to face problems. They’re much easier to ignore. Everyone chooses. Face problems and find a solution or have them blow up in your face. Or, maybe you’ll get lucky and the problems vanish. Or, you carry them around and suffer the consequences day by day, usually for far too long.
