I was disgusted with most of the other GOP candidates for INCD5 in last evening’s virtual town hall (indianatownhalls dot org). D.C. Stephenson - who moved to Indiana 100 years ago and put Indiana on the map with the KKK - would be proud.
Because of the size of the GOP field, the 14 candidates were split into two groups. The more blatant racism was expressed in group 1. Brizzi blames COVID-19 on Chinese communists. Then again Beckwith sees Commies in Michigan.
Asian-Americans - who were singled out - should watch both groups, but especially the first. In their capacity-challenged brains, and despite evidence (a/k/a facts), the COVID-19 crisis has been capably met by trump, after it was, launched by China.
White supremacists control the Republican Party (a/k/a GOP). They are a minority even within the GOP, but are well-financed and have an advantage: control of one of the two major political parties.
The Indiana GOP is a non-profit corporation. Its Articles of Incorporation state no ideology. The party was the target of a hostile take-over in 2010. Forces alien to knowledge, compassion, justice now control it.
This GOP has produced an administration that bungled COVID-19 crisis, caused the deaths of tens of thousands and brags about its success in the matter. Both “major” parties have canted the electoral field to render nearly impossible a challenge by a “third” party.
The idiocracy that has become the GOP must be fought - but within as much as against. I have previously written that I don’t have a secret decoder ring from the Deep State, but we need to take over the GOP.
If you live in Indiana’s 5th Congressional District (INCD5), your vote can make a difference. The dozen or so candidates for the GOP nomination running against me try to out-trump each other. Indiana’s primaries: quasi-open.
A registered voter may request a ballot of either major party. A voter overcomes challenge as a “real” R or D if s/he says s/he voted for a majority of the party’s nominees in the last election or promises to vote for a majority of the nominees in November. I.C. §§ 3-1-10-6 and -9.
If you live in INCD5 and are eligible, please make sure you’re registered to vote. Any voter can request a GOP primary ballot. We face a constitutional crisis. The GOP has to be taken back from the minority that jacked it a few years ago.
Interesting that Beckwith crowed last night about his extensive knowledge of The Constitution and its history. He agreed, weeks back, to debate me, then backed down. Abernathy challenged any candidate to debate him - I accepted but then: crickets.
Neither Beckwith nor Abernathy should open his mouth again. Each extols the virtues of a “free market” when it comes to anything else, but the surest test of truth is its acceptance in the free market of ideas.
No one - as in nada, zip, zilch, zero - has responded to my challenge on health care: if “socialized medicine” is so bad, why do 34 of the 36 countries ranked ahead of us do so well - with socialized medicine?
If you live in INCD5, please watch both segments from last evening on YT. Warning: have a barf bag nearby. And Micah and Kent - either of you, both - feel free to e-mail me to set up a debate. Impartial moderator, no interruptions, and I’m cool.
I am Mark Small, GOP candidate in the June 2 primary for INCD5. I am pro-choice, anti-NRA, pro-environment, anti-war and anti-dt. My secret decoder ring tells me to drink Ovaltine. I approve of this blog. Hell, I wrote it.
