Trump — More Desperate, Dangerous,

& Authoritarian!

      How bad can things get? We are living in unprecedented times. We are in in the midst of a global pandemic, the worst in 100 years. The US with 4% of the world’s population has 25% of the world’s Covid cases with the death toll mounting. In addition, working people and small businesses are facing an economic crisis like nothing seen since the Great Depression, while the wealth of Billionaires soars. On top of all this are the growing visible effects of planet climate catastrophe, deadly blatant systematic racism, and escalating US tensions risking war with China, etc. War today, either through accident or design, could result in global nuclear destruction and the end to civilization as we know it.

      In a few months, amid the pandemic, elections will be held. In the interest of protecting the public health, it seems common sense to provide mail in voting so people do not have to leave their homes and risk their lives to vote. Trump has been making baseless mail fraud allegations. It appears to be part of a clear attempt to suppress the vote. Trump seems to realize that the fewer people who vote, the better his chances of winning. There is nothing new about suppressing the vote in minority areas, providing fewer poling places and voting booths, etc. resulting in long lines and hours of waiting. But sabotaging the Post Office vote by mail in the midst of a pandemic appears unprecedented. Trump did not mince words on his intent. He made clear he’s blocking postal cash to stop mail in votes. It’s been reported widely in the media on 8/13/20.


      There now appears to be major push back in support of voting by mail and funding the Post Office, but damage may have already been done. Mail processing machines and mail drop boxes have reportedly been removed in many places. Keep pushing for justice, peace and a livable planet.

Beware of More Coming Surprises to Hold on to Power!

Who would have thought the need to defend the Post Office?

1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
