Some thoughts on the upcoming presidential election next year, 2020.

All the Democratic candidates throwing their hat in the ring for next year have only one thing on their minds, being popular and getting votes. You notice they are not saying anything about religious freedom, family values, speaking against abortion or homosexuality, because if they did they would be finished before they ever started.

The sad fact is, however, the most popular things are legalizing marijuana, the me-too movement, women's rights and the other issues I have mentioned. Nothing is being said about health care, the needs of our elderly, or senior citizens squat diddly. Period.

Ben Franklin once said at the time of the Constitutional Convention more than 200 years ago, "You now have a republic, but only if you can keep it." Today that republic is in extreme danger.
