Vote for Doug Jones
Letter to the Editor
By Rowland Scherman –
CAPE COD, Ma. — Somehow, strangely enough, the fate of the entire planet Earth has boiled down to whether the people of the beautiful state of Alabama will vote for a legitimate senate candidate, or a candidate chosen by the most dangerous United States President in history.
This is not hyperbole. The country has entered a downward spiral, triggered by a man whose qualifications for the office (at least the office as we know it) are non-existent.
It has long been rumored that the U.S. would someday drift into a form of Fascism “waving the flag and carrying a Bible.” So said Upton Sinclair in the 1920’s.
That time has come and the people and the Congress in America are allowing the drift to continue, caught up as they are in disbelief and cowardliness.
The only way out is to loosen the grip that the current majority holds in Congress.
Roy Moore has been selected for the Senate seat by Trump and his sidekick Steve Bannon (an eerie reincarnation of Josef Goebbles if there ever was one).
Up here in the Northeast we don’t get a lot of news about the Alabama election, except about the number and the ages of the teens that have been molested by Moore.
That said, even if Roy Moore is totally innocent of all the charges, he is still by far the lesser of the candidates running for this important seat. Doug Jones is the best chance Alabama has had in many years to elect an official that is not a national embarrassment.
For Trump to add another rubber stamp to the majority will become an important nail in the coffin of democracy in the United States of America. Do not let this happen.
Vote for Doug Jones, and get everyone who ever came to Joe Bar (on the Southside of Birmigham), all your pals, to do the same.
The weight of this election is more important and more serious than any event at this moment in time.
