Do we see a light at the end of the tunnel, or is it a train coming the other way? If the President gets reelected does everything continue as the status quo and the next 4 years are an effort to stop him from accomplishing what he intends? If he is thrown out of office, will the next President make 4 years? Will the tide of racism ebb and lives of POC in the urban cities start to change? Will police shootings drop because departments have been defunded? Will our cities be any safer? Will there be immigration reform? Will there be more hearings to get back at the other party? Will we get the pandemic handled and get everyone back on their feet? Will your life be any better when the election is over? Or will we just start the cycle over again? Truth be told, the only thing that will really happen is the politicians will be given a few more years to run game on all of us and pit us all against each other in their ever reaching quest for power. If you don’t know, now you know!
