Thank you Jesus! They have seen the light! Jonas Farthingale Leap Of Faith
Just s little something that I wanted to share with you to brighten your day, and hopefully your mood. I know some of you are getting sick of my rosy outlook towards the result of the 2020 election, and I get that. But with all of the positive news, there is something that nobody else has bothered to mention yet, and I just wanted to share it with you.
By now, if you’re watching television at all, then you are well aware that the early signs going into the election are strong for team Biden. Early mail in balloting is springing with a heavy Democratic tilt, even in Florida, which normally shows a modest GOP advantage in early absentee balloting.
And if you’re watching, you’re seeing record first day turnout in early in person balloting all across the country. Whether in Democratic or GPO held states, lines are off the charts, and people are waiting anywhere from 2-11 hours just in order to exercise their God given right to cast a ballot. Those aren’t Trump supporters you’re seeing out there, they’re largely Biden supporters, and the Biden campaign is busy logging those early votes in the bank. But there’s one thing that you’re not seeing yet.
Let me briefly take you backwards a few months. Let’s look back at the early days of the Democratic primaries, once the voting started. Coming out of Nevada, Joe Biden’s campaign was on life support. He had yet to finish higher than third in any primary. He had all along proclaimed that his firewall was South Carolina. That was where his momentum would turn, and he would start to pick up steam.
Do you remember that? And do you remember what happened in South Carolina? Influential congressman James Clyburn made an impassioned plea to his home town voters, cracked the proverbial whip, and Biden blew the doors off in South Carolina. That victory unlocked a tsunami of African American support for Biden, and he never looked back.
Now, back to the current moment. With all of the positive signs for the Democrats in the early voting stages of this election, do you know what you haven’t seen yet? Here’s a hint. It’s four simple words. Souls To The Polls.
In Ohio, in North Carolina, in South Carolina, in Florida, in Alabama, in Mississippi, in Louisiana, in Texas, Souls to the polls is a long standing black tradition. It means that African Americans go to church, and then, once the services are over with, they hop on board church buses, and are driven over to the polls to cast their votes. And when they’re done, they’re driven back again, often to a pot luck lunch.
And traditionally, the Souls to the polls drives take place in the last two weeks of early voting. I don’t know why, but it just seems to be the way it works out. And with all of the other early voting positive news for the Biden-Harris campaign, that’s the one thing that nobody has remarked on yet, and the sleeping 800 lb. gorilla in the room.
Remember, it was the African American vote that powered Biden to be able to force an early victory in the primaries, starting with his behemoth showing in South Carolina, and following forward into Super Tuesday. And they’re still out there. And if they were motivated to vote in the primaries for Biden, they sure as hell will be motivated to vote for him in the general election. And nobody has even seen them yet. That won’t occur for about two more weeks yet, depending on the early voting rules for the states.
So, that’s my good news for you tonight. They’re out there, And they’re not going anywhere, They’re keeping their powder dry. And while you watch all of the positive results coming out in early voting, just remember one thing. Biden’s strongest base of support hasn’t even reared their heads yet and shown up. But they will. 20 days. GOTV!
