Americans cannot let Trump lie and scare them into voting against their own interest by using a vile form of racism and xenophobia. Guest: Sri Preston Kulkarni
You can also find previous episodes on YouTube here.
Donald Trump is at it again. He is trying to bring out the inner racist element that still resides in some. He has released Trump’s version of the George Bush Willie Horton ad. I won’t show it, play it, or talk about the ad specifically because none of that will provide Americans with the health care they need, the wage increases they are owed, or the myriad of other things the GOP has failed to provide while in complete control of the Federal Government in Washington DC and most of the state governments in the country. Texas provides a good example of a government that is legally murdering its citizens by denying them access to healthcare every Texan is already paying for. This is repeated Red State after Red State. Criminals legal and moral must pay a price at the polls. And that can only be done if you vote.
If you can early vote as people can in Texas until tomorrow at 7:00 PM, please do so. But on November 6th, it is imperative that the polls are overwhelmed with voters. Some would say that irrespective of one’s party affiliation or ideology, a Progressive vote is necessitated this time. It will be ones personal human malpractice if you don’t vote to save this state and country.
Our special guest today is Sri Preston Kulkarni. I read some articles this morning about the Kulkarni race which has attracted some national attention. One has to be impressed with Kulkarni and Progressive and Moderate candidates that decided to challenge the reactionary form of government in place throughout the country. Kulkarni will tell us about the state of his race and about the big picture in Congress.
