The USA midterms elections 2022 is tricky and slippery as al USA past elections and politics .
Many are asking if faith leaders of the Republican party like Franklin Graham should be using God,s names for partisan politics that gave America Donald Trump for president ?.
In the Social Psychology conference in New Olearns , participants were told that political sociologists who studied political behaviors in the USA , have noticed that Democrats have resorted to using the games and strategies of the Republicans to beat them in their own games .
Houston Democratic leaning and supporting Bishop Dixon of the NAACP appointed by democrat Lina Hildago to the post of Chairman of the NRG is doing all in his power to play social justice debvelopment political communication with the fight for democracy campaigns .
The unsuspecting would be surprise to hear Al Green say vote all democratic candidates on the ticket as if all democratic candidates in the 2022 midterm elections are fit to be elected and or returned to office .
It should be noted that certain democratic candidates stayed away from the campaign though they are the brain behind them because of possible questions from those who know why certain events take place during elections seasons .
Though the NAACP is suppose to be non partisan and an umbrella for all parties where blacks associate , fight for democracy rally looked more like a Houston Texas Democratic event using NAACP and the Church Bishop who may and may not be representing the Church of Christ in Partisan political speeches like those said on said day .
While some blame democrats for using the misery of blacks and or minorities to remain as congress persons for 30 years and above , most of the so called tax break money that Trump made was used to create minimum wage jobs which white Americans never apply for nor want to do .
As Americans continue to cast early votes for 2022 midterm elections , confusion and manipulations are going on using campaign contributions and God may not be on the ballot as many are fooled to believe .
The other parties accuse Democrats and Republicans for the mess that is the president day USA hyper partisan politics and calls on Americans to fight for Democracy by voting out both parties .
Like the present Confusion in the UK where in just a few weeks, Britain has had three prime ministers , the USA politics where the popular votes winner in presidential elections has not become president like Hilary Clinton and Al Gore may just be heading to a different direction with the storming of the capitol by Republican inspired Rhetoric.
All parties are calling for Americans to fight for democracy though the major parties are accused for killing democracy .
Politicans in the USA like those in Africa have found that even pastors love appointed positions and power and are helping them " Fight for Democracy " .

The Houston Base ball team , Astros , have qualified for the final rounds of the USA baseball season play against the Philies of Philadelphia .
The jubilation is every where not because baseball is the major sports in the USA like American football but because the Houston Football team the Texans and the Basket ball team , the Rockets are not performing as good as expected .
The so called World series in baseball is a misnomer because it is not world games nor global games but limited in the USA to USA teams and also Canada .
To say you won the world series is like saying you competed with other World teams like the FIFA world cup and won the finals and that is not true .
The Astros came out of the 2017 national success to deal with a great so called sign stealing scandal that tarnished the image of the Houston team . Let is be known that fraud and or stealing in sports did not start with the Astros and will not end with the team . Athletes in and or from many other countries use banned substances to enhance their performance and occasionally caught and punished .
Coaches have been banned for illegal behaviors and suspended .
National players in different sports have been caught sexually abusing women using the money they get from gate fees from especially fanatics who support any and or every thing sports .
Houstonians as the residents of Houston are called are cautiously optimistic that their team will win the final games and are rushing in great numbers to the Minute Maid park to buy the newest wears and or merchandise as a show of financial and or public contributions for their team .
No matter the outcome of the final games which may be seven in number depending on the performance of both teams , Houston remains proud of it,s only sports shinning spot , the Astros . Sports business is bringing huge tax dollars to hosts cities which are used by local , state and national or federal governments for development .
