Local opinion  on this Election  which is like no other 

While the Chinese Covid virus is a serious issue, it has rather stolen the spotlight this

election cycle. Complaining abounds about how it has been handled but ultimately it is behemoth, government bureaucracies (CDC, NIH, etc.) which decide & execute policy &run the show. The ‘ball’ … and the blame are in their court.  In many ways they have failed America, displayed their ineptness & generally lost credibility/reliability as ‘experts.’ They should be held accountable…along with some state & local authorities/politicians.  It is myopic to think Covid is the biggest issue in this election. Ever more doctors internationally are contesting the wrong ‘science’ related to the Chinese Covid virus. (search: World Doctors’ Alliance). We are being distracted from other, more serious issues: the very survival of America as we know her; the preservation of our Constitution, Bill of Rights, our representative republic, our rights and freedoms. The moral chaos & rote/pc drivel which defines the Left’s concept of freedom is far removed from the superb vision of freedom established at our founding…one based on faith, personal responsibility & the innate worth/dignity of all people. A wholesale attack on our nation is underway…not just on Donald Trump – via corrupt/biased/ignorant social media, a vicious/deluded main stream press, Big Tech, the Deep State, Hollywood, one world government proponents, etc. Is Covid a sudden, manufactured crisis designed to create a sense of urgency? To what end – if not for use by Leftists & global elite power brokers? Would you vote for a feeble-minded candidate who holes up in his basement refusing to answer policy questions – a corrupt, plagiarizing person of diminished mental capacity? One who practices character assassination (Clarence Thomas/Robert Bjork hearings) & has never had a real job in his life? Would you vote a ticket boasting candidates verifiably tied to the Communist party? (Kamala, et al?) Would you vote a party sold out to China, supported by the Chinese Communist Party & whose candidate & family are neck deep in Chinese/Ukrainian corruption? Would you elect a regime offering dystopia masquerading as utopia … & one offering their worst candidate ever Biden, this election is our nation’s most important ever. If you value your freedom & that of future generations, vote to stop the designs of the ‘hate America crowd,’ vote to stop the dissolution of our republic by power hungry ‘progressives’ & the Marxist radicals now controlling them. Beware the march of tyranny. Beware the continued demise of a healthy and free society where we may “secure the Blessings of Liberty for ourselves and our Posterity.”

A PRO-AMTRAK

Endorsement

I,Merlin Louis
Marlowe have lived most of my life in south central Minnesota. I grew up in a conservative Republican household. When I was thirteen in 1969, I fell in love with travel. I became a railroad advocate! In the 1970’s I became a member of a National Association of Railroad passengers (now called rail passengers Association). In the 2010’s I started Torta (Tri-Otas Railroad Travel Advocates). “Torta Territory” consists of Western Minnesota (Current congressional District 7), North Dakota and South Dakota. I will always posses the belief that AMTRAK railroad passenger service is a vital transportation necessity throughout the entire United States of America! AMTRAK connects to big city, America to small town rural America. I call myself a combination of Pro-AMTRAK Republican and right-wing Democrat. Amtrak is supported on Capital Hill in Washington DC by virtually every Democrat and roughly a third of republicans. Thus, AMTRACK benefits from bi-partisan support. As for all ground passenger transportation, I hope that in the years ahead that more buss routes (Greyhound or otherwise) will be more connectable with AMTRAK routes. There are already many cities where busses and trains share facilities. Therefore, I wholeheartedly endorse for Tuesday November 3, 2020 the re-election of U.S. Senator Steve Daines (R-MT).
