Here we are, two weeks after the 2020 election and we still don’t have the official declaration for our next President. Instead, we have ongoing lawsuits and cabinet picks. Heaven forbid the two candidates should sit down and come up with some kind of contingency plans for a smooth transition, should the legal battle fail to overturn the election. The hate between political parties and the Coronavirus decided the election and are the root of our other problems.
Our country is divided so much that there are whispers of civil war on the airwaves. Since the Civil War 1861-1865 solved nothing, such talk shows the real breakdown of communication between Republicans and Democrats. Before someone attacks my opinion of the War Between the States, I want to add that while slavery was abolished on paper, Blacks or African-Americans, still fight for equal treatment, even though the war was over 155 years ago. Our forefathers compromised and allowed slavery to continue through the signing of the Constitution. They delayed trying to solve the disparate treatment of human beings, and even a war failed to make a difference. Democrats and Republicans still argue over how to approach racism. I think they just make it worse and neither really wants to address it.
The 2020 elections led to an apparent Joe Biden victory because people hated the way President Donald Trump handled the Coronavirus. I dare say that Joe Biden, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, or Ronald Reagan, couldn’t have done a better job. It is all politics. A divided political system couldn’t agree how to address the Coronavirus. Instead, politics interfere with wearing masks, lockdowns, vaccine delay, and stimulus funding. Politics is the enemy.
Yes, politics is the root of all evil in 2020. It has led to more suffering under Coronavirus, expanded civil unrest, and left an election fight in the courts. I believe our nation will never unite unless we stop trying to use political power to rule instead of reign over people’s lives. Who is chosen our next president is important. However, the differences between the two should not be so great. Biden and the Democrats can’t force more regulations, restrictions, and their views on Americans. Trump and the GOP need to stop trying to undo everything of past administrations. They must work together, not compete. Neither party has all the answers on racism and the Coronavirus. Politics will not solve either issue. But again, maybe politicians of both parties don’t want serious problems solved. How would they continue to pretend to be needed or relevant?
