First off, I am so appreciative of everyone who has interacted with this blog and has taken time to read my perspective. It means a lot! I so much enjoy the conversations that this blog has started and continued. And, you know, conversations go both ways. So, I have realized that it is now my time, my turn to listen to you and learn from you.
With that in mind, below are some questions that have been rolling my mind. I would love for you to comment or DM/PM me your answers and/or takes on a question or two (or three or four).
I want to hear from you! It’s your turn to give me your insight and your opinions!
- Are two political parties enough to cover over 328 million people (and their many opinions) in the United States of America?
- If you could pick any person to be the president (and they not necessarily be a politician) who would it be and why?
- Why is the United States behind in Covid-19 testing? (Why does the United Kingdom have fast-response testing and the US does not?)
- Is the Electoral College fair (in the voting process)? [There has been five times in our history where the presidential candidate won the popular vote but lost the election: Andrew Jackson in 1824 (to John Quincy Adams); Samuel Tilden in 1876 (to Rutherford B. Hayes); Grover Cleveland in 1888 (to Benjamin Harrison); Al Gore in 2000 (to George W. Bush); Hillary Clinton in 2016 (to Donald J. Trump).]
- Will the Census be a valid representation of our nation and our communities?
I cannot wait to hear your perspective and to hopefully have a conversation.
