Vladimir Putin's war on Ukraine is a byproduct of Donald Trump's big lie about the 2020 election. Putin, Trump's ally, knows that America is divided between Trump's Republican Party and the Democrats who are currently in control. He knows Fox News and other Right-Wing propaganda media will do the work for him and attempt to undermine our resolve toward Ukraine. The Russian president knows if he can get America to doubt their own election through the lies that are being told, he can do whatever he wants in Eastern Europe as we bicker among ourselves over silly causes like vaccine mandates and mask wearing. It all works for him.

I believe that Putin has miscalculated. Donald Trump's own words have come back to haunt him as his praise for his buddy Putin has been met with revulsion by all but his most faithful admirers. His hatred of the constitution is evident as he longs for an autocracy, like what Putin enjoys in his country. I believe Americans are finally waking up to the fact that this man is a dangerous liar, who hates democracy. His approval rating is rapidly dwindling even among the faithful at the Conservative Political Action Conference, that hard core sect that has worshipped him so much. His numbers are down from the past two years there. This is good news.

In the coming elections in Arkansas, Sarah Sanders will be running for governor of our state. It is imperative that we defeat this woman, who enjoys Donald Trump's support, by a wide margin so it will send a message to the rest of the country that Trump is irrelevant. She has no qualifications to be governor outside of being Trump's "spokes liar" for many years. She has already stated that she is more interested in bringing down Joe Biden rather that helping Arkansas cope with the many problems in this state. Her agenda is the same sick agenda of Donald Trump: Destroy America.

Let's defeat tyrants here and abroad and keep democracy alive and well. If we let the "Trumpers" back in office, we will descend into a dark age for this country the likes of which we have never known. Don't let it happen.
