Last week’s mid-term elections brought about interesting results and confirmation that a measurable level of voters are uninformed, unaware and/or apathetic.
I noticed a large percentage who were deliberate in their intention and direction when it came to supporting a political front – either policy or person. There was nothing that would assuage or derail their mindset. This applies to both parties.
However, I am compelled to site the following, to wit:
- AZ Secretary of State running for Governor did not recuse herself
- Abortion is lauded as a Constitutional Right;
- Anyone fleeing a country lead by a despot and rogue government has a Right to enter the U.S. on Humanitarian basis, illegal or not;
- Gender identity surpasses social ordinances and etiquette;
- A baby born alive, after surviving an abortion attempt, will not receive any medical attention if required (MT);
- Voting machines encountered “operational issues” early in the voting day, problem attributed to a print-sharing protocol (AZ)
And here’s the crowning factoid:
State Representative Tony DeLuca, died at age 85 on Oct. 9 due to lymphoma. He received greater than 21,000 votes from his district – over 85% of the vote. His opponent – very, much alive and mobile – received under 14%. Oh, DeLuca is a Democrat and was a State Rep for greater than 39 years.
To temper the faux pas, Pennsylvania House Democrats tweeted: “While we’re incredibly saddened by the loss of Representative Tony DeLuca, we are proud to see the voters to continue to show their confidence in him and his commitment to Democratic values by re-electing him posthumously.
What’s the difference between ignorance and apathy? …I don’t Know and I don’t care!
