Postmaster Should Be Helping Create Solutions to Assure Voter Mail
I am just a regular guy but if I was Postmaster General I would be thinking this is my time to shine. I would create special envelopes (like the electric company) that reads and tracks the vote. An envelope with a little window in it will allow vote tracking. Just like every package. You know your vote was received and then again when it is read and counted. Sent to email or phone.
Is Purposeful Negligence Mail Fraud?
Louis DeJoy has done nothing to help or enhance the voting during a pandemic. For the first time in decades the Postmaster is not a career postal employee. So is this purposeful negligence to help the Trump campaign? Is doing nothing and looking the other way at a time when we need postal enhancements and postal leadership a form of negligence?
Louis DeJoy Has $100M in FedEx Stock
I cannot ever recall a time when the Postmaster was in the news, or moreover an enemy of the postal system. And Louis DeJoy has reason to be an enemy of the post office. It was revealed (not by Louis DeJoy) during a hearing in paperwork that the wife of DeJoy had 100 million dollars of Federal Express stock. These rich republican hacks believe the postal service should be privatized, i.e driven out of business and we the people should be paying 10 dollars to mail a letter using UPS or FedEX. No competitors will be left to keep them in check..
A Note About Republicans
The Republicans have ALL been silent at every Trump grab for power. They are supposed to be stewards of Democracy and the stewards of the Congress, but they are neither. They act impotent. They are traitors to our democracy and traitors to the spirit and intent of the US Congress.
Entire Republican Party Culpability in Pandemic Deaths
The Republican acts of looking the other way makes them culpable for all the crimes, negligence, death and mishaps that came thereafter. Even now, in witness to Trump getting everything wrong, they continue in lock step with that ignorance. They are not dumb but believe they are cunning, so they will be HELD accountable. In a concerted way the Republican Party is far more culpable that Trump. Instead of oversight they act with conspiracy to NOT PERFORM OVERSIGHT, and as a group they conspired to further falsehoods that caused lots of death AND confused the entire country. They have delayed the re-opening of America because they refused to wear masks in the Spring. They got it wrong. They thought their brains were better than scientists and experts. This demonstrates that ALL Republican lawmakers are not that smart. Sure – they can get elected, but only stupid people think they know everything. Educated people are the opposite; in awe of ALL there is to learn.
Republicans have gotten everything wrong.
