How the heck do Republicans get elected?


April 15, 2021

To The Eagle:

Once again, I am going back to the Big Lie, 45’s big lie of fraudulent and stolen election. As I said before, it lives on in the form of voter suppression in almost every state, including this one! Washington State has had all-mail voting since 2012. Republican lawmakers put forward two bills to curb or end all-mail voting and require voters to affirmatively request absentee ballots. How the heck do the Republicans keep getting voted in? Republican lawmakers are against so many proposals, which have, even a majority Republican voter’s approval.

H.R. 1: For the People Act of 2021. To require a background check for every firearm sale, 84% of voters, including 77% of Republicans, support requiring all gun purchasers to go through a background check.

H.R. 6: American Dream and Promise Act of 2021. Voting rights legislation named for John Lewis stalled in Congress.

All of those, because Mitch and Republicans refuse to pass anything that smells Democrat. End the fillibuster; give Mitch his due. He has installed over 300 right wing justices, with lifetime appointments, many not qualified, and mostly young, without 60 votes!

Can someone tell me what the Republican platform was in the last election? No, there wasn’t any, seriously. The Republican National Committee dispensed with producing a new platform, instead offering wholehearted support for 45! 45’s administration cut hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, because thousands of their citizens had sought asylum at the U.S. border with Mexico. This aid has been restored, to hopefully make a difference for their people to stay.

I’d like to once again thank Biden for taking the virus seriously, unlike 45; 45 did though help get the vaccine produced, while not promoting it, getting the shot in private, why?

Thank you also Wahkiakum Health Department; my wife and I have both our shots. Hope we can all band together and finish the covid battle, we are close.

Spring is here; news is once again tolerable, enjoy life. God is good.
