The people of this nation have positioned themselves to flow blindly with their binding political views. No one is ready to have the conversations needed to build a better future for our country. We've got a giant slab of land, a person with hardly the qualifications to run it, and millions of mindless sheep soaring through life as if today is "normal." We've an election coming up with two men at the forefront, neither qualified, neither appropriate enough to run even a daycare. We are currently stepping into the shadows, risking the loss of everything if either one takes office.
America is a melting pot and we all should respect those who are different and with whose views we do not agree. Those who hold public office should be fair to all American citizens they have sworn to represent. Unfortunately, a lot of hate and vitriol has been coming down from the president since he first ran for office and it has negatively affected those in his party. A growing number of Republicans have been openly expressing racist views. The latest is far right candidate Laura Loomer who has said publicly that she is a proud "Islamophobe." Loomer, 27 who says Islam is a cancer recently won the GOP primary for Florida's 21st precinct.
From the day that Donald Trump began running for office and during his first term as president, he has expressed intolerance of those different from himself. He continues to call the coronavirus as the "Kung flu" and "China virus." He recently referred to Senator Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas and said that Mexican immigrants were thieves and murderers. He continuously gives winks and nods to the far right and White supremacist groups and has said disparaging things about women, blacks, Muslims, and basically anyone who is not an older white male. After Michelle Obama's passionate speech at the Democratic National Convention, number 45 now has his worst nightmare staring him in the face.
Senator Kamala Harris was already well known by some who follow politics. However, there are some interesting things that people might not know about the person who will be on the ticket along with Joe Biden for the 2020 Presidential Election.
The following is a collection of quotations, the words of two people. They are not talking to each other, but their comments have a certain commonality. One of the people was a world leader. The other is a world leader. The comments of each tell us which might be more fit to lead. One is an extraordinary person; the other is not. The idea of this exercise is not to determine who the speakers are (that’s easy) but to understand the skill set of a successful leader.
There was a story about General Washington when his troops were just trained for the Revolutionary War. In the event of their graduation as military troops, Washington would have them watched the play about the man, the Roman Senator who made Emperor Caesar. The play, Cato, would show all the lengths of knowledge that the senator possessed and how he could easily persuade the Roman Senate to listen to Caesar. Cato was a longtime serving senator who could not gain enough popularity to become emperor even though he had all the knowledge and leadership skills. Roman was possessed with Caesar's divisiveness and military prowess. For example, Cato created the first easy to vote system so Romans could vote easier and support his campaign. He tried numerous times to be Emperor but failed to Julius Caesar. Caesar was a magnate and center character, too hard of an opponent to defeat. Cato's ultimate fall was that he placed his trust into the hands of the dictatorship of Caesar. Cato would cover all the misdoings of Caesar and plotted with Caesar to control the Roman Senate until finally, he could not take it anymore. He died in what they identified as a suicide yet the facts remain a mystery. However, this completed the downfall of Caesar because he could no longer control the Senate and the Romans were distraught over his terms of peace and Cato's end made the Senate fear the power of Caesar and the Senate tried to honor Cato with a coin and his invention but it was too late. Eventually, the Roman Dictator's end was on its eve.

In the realm of Australian politics no other seat is more hotly contested than Eden-Monaro. This seat is geographically located within New South Wales and the Nation’s capital, Canberra. For decades it’s been considered a “bellwether seat” and one of the original 62 seats of the Australian Parliament. If I were to say the seat of Eden-Monaro was the Mecca of Australian Politics, I’d be selling short the importance of it. Traditionally no government has one won office in Australia without first winning the seat of Eden-Monaro, until recently.
