This is bizarre. A story out of Washington, D.C. where business owners have begun to board up their windows and secure their doors in preparation of the election on November 3rd. Think about this: Washington D.C. is preparing for rioting and looting ahead of the election. When was the last time a Republican carried the District? Ever? Not that I can think of so are these shop owners believing that Trump will win? There really wouldn’t be a need, would there, if Biden wins. Of course there may be people out celebrating a Biden win, but does that account for what’s going on tthere?
I also heard on television that in some areas of the country (New York City, anyone?) people in the higher income areas are hiring private, armed, security. That’s right, the rich folks are hiring armed security. Why? Everyone is so confident that Biden is going to run away with this election, why would there be a need to board up shops or hire armed security? Who are they afraid of, right-wingers? Who’s been doing the rioting and looting since the end of May? Oh yeah, Antifa, and BLM, hardly right-wing affiliated groups. There must be some lack of confidence in what the mainstream media pundits have been saying, daily, for the past few months.
It doesn’t seem that there’s a good deal of confidence by the Biden campaign. A representative, on television recently said that Ohio was not crucial to a Biden victory? I almost fell out of my chair. Really? Ohio has been, at least in my adult lifetime, one of the key states to win for any candidate of any party. Now they don’t seem to care? It doesn’t seem like this election is necessarily a lock for either to cede a very important state, or at least imply they are. Bizarre? Yes. Or is it confidence of a victory, no matter what?
I think that when candidates spend time in states that they are picked to win, overwhelmingly, maybe not so much confidence exists. Therefore, we have people preparing for violence. That’s troubling and should be for everyone. We’ve never experienced anything like that in this country. I hope the preparations lead to nothing, but my sense tells me that it’s already baked in, no matter what happens. The left just want to riot and loot – BLM calls it “reparations”. I am truly sorry for those business owners that will inevitably be affected and more so? Those that will lose their lives. Yes, we can expect a number of people, mostly innocents as it usually is, to be caught up in the violence,
I hope I’m wrong but I see a tough few days ahead, post election, for a lot of people around the country.
