The pandering of Perdue

Perdue mocking Kamala Harris’s name at a Trump rally made me cringe. He knows what her name is because he’s served in the Senate with her. Yet, he drew the racist bully card in front of a crowd who cheered him on.

Loeffler’s one-note attacks

Drawing from the same playbook, Ann Coulter’s more evil twin, Kelly Loeffler, continually called Reverend Raphael Warnock a “radical. ” Her main political talking point, she said it at least 14 times in their last debate because she had no statements of substance to make. She couldn’t defend opposing relief to individuals at the beginning of the pandemic and offered nothing but deflection about her profiting off her COVID-19 briefing.

A “radical,” Socialist agenda

Rather than stand on a record of service, both Perdue and Loeffler stoke the flames of fear of a phantom “radical” agenda that will take away our guns and turn us into Venezuela. Meanwhile, we already have “socialist” programs in place like Social Security and Medicare.

A new agenda

It may be time for the people to be focused on their own agenda, their own interests. From there, they can choose the candidate that serves those interests. Instead of blindly following what any leader says, they need to look at facts to draw their conclusions.
