The Man Who Thinks He Can! - by Walter D. Wintle

Arnold, CA...2020 will be a year many of us would like to forget. History also tells us that when things look darkest the tide may have already turned in our favor. A new day starts before we see the light. Growing up I always loved this poem from Walter Wintle. Not much is definitively known about the author or even which variation is the real one. This poem was first published with his name in 1905. Lets make this a great day!!




If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but you think you can't,
It is almost a cinch you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you've lost;
For out in this world we find
Success begins with a person's will
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you're outclassed, you are;
You've got to think high to rise.
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win the prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the person who wins
Is the one who thinks he can!

At the end it is not all about winning.

Saddest thing to me is how many people never even really try. They get to the end of their days not ever knowing what they might have been capable of.

    From Darkest To Brightest

    History also tells us that when things look darkest the tide may have already turned in our favor.

    The Dump tenure has been a disaster,environmentally internationally, economically, and our health security trashed.

    Out of this disaster we have a bright future , as the misguided, criminal policies of the Republicans will be reversed by Democrats , once again as once again A Democrat will repair the damage done by reckless greedy Republicans. Remamber bush? Reagan? A Democrat came to the aid of America to undo the misguided policies of the Republicans.

    Once again, we must let the Democrats reverse the corruption ,greed , and slide into fascism Dump has been hell bent on. America must say NO!

    Biden has spoken about what is needed, especially a Green New Deal, a FDR like New Deal which got Americans working again. In polls Americans -80% say climate change is a near top issue for them.
    A Green New Deal would solve many of the current problems we face.
    It would employ Millions of unemployed in jobs of the future in Construction, engineering, and manufacturing.

    Biden also will reverse the never ending transfer of wealth from the middle class to the Billionaires,.
    Billionaires pay littlt to no taxes. The IRS will not even audit them. Trillions in unpaid taxes are waiting to be repaid by them. Biden has said the tax code will be reformed way long past due.

    America can be great again and regain it's place in the world lost under Dump.
    America must be a partner with all countries, and work with them to solve the problems the world faces. The policies of the Republicans only sow division, and only enrich the few at the loss of the 99%. America must rejoin the world and forge partnerships with the Democracies of the world.

    Biden will be a step in the right direction America needs desperately.
    We must decide on a positive change, not more division , hate, and inequality the Republicans offer.

      In my experience, the woman usually wins. He must’ve been a bachelor...
