For Trump voters and those that are still undecided:

Trump is calling for the arrest and prosecution of his political opponents based on his "feelings" and without any kind of credible evidence of wrongdoing. This is the norm in places ruled by authoritarian strongmen like Russia, North Korea, Saudi Arabia and the Phillipines, not the USA!

The only thing restraining Trump is that here in the USA, is the so called "deep state" created by our Constitution, has created a nation framed by the rule of law.

Please think about this before you vote.

Boston Herald Endorses Trump!

By BOSTON HERALD EDITORIAL STAFF |
PUBLISHED: October 27, 2020 at 5:14 a.m.

The 2020 presidential election is about what people don’t want as much as what they actually do want.

For the left, getting Donald Trump out of office tops the wish list. It’s been that way since the day after the 2016 election. For them, everything the president has done is bad, every move sinister, and every policy one more nail in the progressive coffin.

To be fair, Trump hasn’t done himself any favors with his incessant Tweets, revolving door cabinet and mixed messaging on the coronavirus.

Biden allegedly offers a return to “normalcy.” But, what’s normal in 2020?

Biden’s platform is a risky love letter to social justice warriors and those who believe capitalism is the root of all evil.

For starters, Biden wants to increase the corporate tax rate. The Hill cited an economic study by Kevin Hassett and Aparna Mathur which concluded that corporate tax hikes lead to a substantial decrease in wages and spending, and spurred businesses to move out of the country.

That’s not what we need, especially as a report by Yelp found that 60% of businesses around the U.S. that shut down due to the coronavirus will remain closed forever.

Biden has big plans for spending, some $5.4 trillion for universal pre-K, free community college, clean energy and other programs. The wealthy will foot the bill, thanks to eliminating the Republican tax cuts and making the rich “pay their fair share.”

But a look at data released by the Congressional Budget Office analyzing 2017 household income shows that the top 20% of households already pay 87.1% of federal income taxes and 69.2 % of all federal taxes; and the top 1% of households pay an average income tax rate of 24.4% while the middle 20% of households pays an average income tax rate of 3.3%.

Biden has also pledged to create “one million new, well paying jobs in the American automobile industry” — a neat trick following massive job cuts in recent years by auto manufacturers. Part of the reason for those cuts can be traced to a decline in global light vehicle sales, fueled by drops in demand in China and India. As the global economy has taken a wallop due to the coronavirus pandemic, one wonders how demand will shoot up to the point that job cuts can be reversed, and jobs added.

Most disconcerting is that Biden’s platform is a potluck of agendas pushed by far-left party members such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Sanders and Biden hashed out a Progressive Unity Platform this summer, and AOC joined other progressive lawmakers in telling Biden who he shouldn’t have in his Cabinet.

All this, of course, ignores the fact that pre-COVID-19, Donald Trump’s economy was going gangbusters. Last year, the jobless rate dropped to 3.5%, its lowest reading in 50 years. The jobless rate for Hispanics hit a record low of 3.9% in September 2019, while African Americans maintained their lowest rate ever, 5.5%, according to CNBC.

The Dow hovered around 19,000 when Trump was first elected — last year it hit above 26,000 — good news for everyone with a 401(k). Trump didn’t spend his way to a robust economy — he cut regulations and got tougher with trade negotiations.

He’s against defunding police, for holding China accountable for COVID-19 negligence and putting America first on trade, defense, the courts and, again, the economy.

He’s what America needs right now, decisive action to get us back to pre-pandemic strength — not an unfeasible spending spree in the name of a progressive utopia.

The Boston Herald endorses Donald Trump for president.

Exactly. The Murdoch-owned New York Post also endorsed Trump:

Some Trump campaign workers set up a fireworks stand type booth selling campaign merchandise in an empty lot the minimum distance from an early voting site here in Tucson. They are from out of state and are selling MAGA hats and t-shirts. 

However, there have been complaints from neighbors as individuals from the booth have removed Biden/Harris signs from their front yards and tore them up to the cheers of other imported campaign workers.  Complaints were filed with the police and the Trumpers have been warned.  They would have been arrested if the neighbors had taken photos.  Sadly, most of the witnesses were elderly and don't usually think to pull out their cell phones and start filming the way younger folks do.

  Lois, I agree with you, those 'hooigan' political sign stealers should be punished, along with all political sign stealers who enter on property not their own, to remove or distress signs posted by the property owner, for any election, ever.

  If the Warning was the extent that responding Police could deliver, then so be it, and just wanted to say we agree about "Sign Stealers", regardless of the election, or politicians involved.

  Finding a Trump Sign in the District Of Columbia is very rare, not only because DC will faithfully deliver it's total of 3 Electoral Votes, for the DEMOCRAT on the Ballot, dead or alive, lol... as DC has since gaining the vote in National Elections.

Even McGovern got our 3 Electoral votes when he ran.

Still, knowing those passing by my house, if not my neighbors, would find ways to deface, or remove any Trump sign, and perhaps deliver a additional defacing to my home, or car, or windows, there are no Trump Signs outside my home, or even in the windows.

Those days have long passed in my hometown, when one could show her support of any but a Democrat Politician expressed in Yard Signs, without expecting trespassing, violent treatment, by passers by... is it organized... IDK, just seems a pity, that it is "allowed", and "expected" in the Nation's Capital.

Will fly the American Flag above our Front Doorway on Election Day... and take our chances, I suppose.

I visited my home town in a rural area last weekend.  Typically these last couple years when I go home I see numerous homes decorated with Trump banners, flags, etc., more decorated than anyone would do for Christmas actually.

I was pleasantly surprised to see about an equal amount of Biden/Harris signs this past weekend.  Of course it’s a simple and usually single sign rather than a grotesque gaudy display, but then we’re not in a cult.

A month ago I drove through rural Virginia and saw the same, nearly equal number of signs on properties Trump vs. Biden.

Trump is barely holding his own in the rural areas around here let alone making any inroads in suburban or urban areas.  That’s even with Trump appealing to suburban women by telling these women (who probably work unless unemployed due his botched pandemic response or are single), that "we're getting your husbands back to work."

That ought to get those women in his corner, patronize them?  What a dope.

I was in the upper portion of the lower peninsula of Michigan in mid September.    The yard signs ranked appx as follows:   Trump 34%, Biden 17%, "Deer Processing here" 49%

There are really only 3 counties that Biden will win in Michigan.  The people up north are not in that group.

A Michigan judge struck down a ban on open carry of guns at polling places on Election Day.

"Judge Christopher Murray granted the pro-gun-rights groups who filed the lawsuit a preliminary injunction, effectively reversing Benson's October 16 order and eliminating a universal ban on the open carry of firearms at or within 100 feet of polling locations or absentee counting boards on Election Day."

I sure hope the folks threatening violence at polling places on election day are all talk, because what could possibly go wrong?

Yep, that’s my home town.

And I process my own deer.  Which is easy if you’re not turning it all into Slim Jims and bologna.

I am seeing all these polls showing Biden in the lead, but polls showed the same four years ago.  I cannot wait until this election is over.

I think if they took a pill on it the majority wishes it was all over.

Sadly I fear it will end up in the courts for weeks. At least the horrid attack ads will be done.

The ads are terrible. Never knew there were so many evil people. One is a slumlord, another is a crook and another wants to curtail the use of your fridge.

More people have already voted early in Texas than voted in the entire 2016 election. Texas also leads the nation in the youth vote 18 to 29-year-olds. There’s a massive struggle for the character of our country underway; however, I can’t help but be paranoid. We got burned in 2016. We got burned in 2000.  We’ll know the score by January 20, 2021, I predict.

Dan is in a pool with his former co-workers as to the date that one candidate or the other will concede to their opponent.
