We Could Have Had a Better Man Than Fetterman

We Could Have Had a Better Man Than Fetterman

By Bob Small

Alternative history can be a tricky concept. I suspect both major parties, if they had use of a Tardis would want to redo the 2022 PA Senate primary, and select different U.S. senatorial candidates. Dave McCormick comes to mind, and you can fill in any name for Fetterman. Watching the one lone debate between Fetterman and Oz made me glad we only had one to watch.

There were any number of alternative-party and write-in candidates, who, unfortunately, had the same chance as any Republican running in Swarthmore — that is, zero to none.

We Could Have Had a Better Man Than Fetterman

However, when I came across one Everett Stern, I had to stop and wish it were possible. This is the same Everett Stern who blew the whistle on his employer, HSBC Bank which was discovered to be only aiding drug dealers and terrorist groups. The story was profiled in the Netflix documentary “Dirty Money” and in a  Rolling Stone  article.

Stern is also the founder and director of Tactical Rabbit, a private Intelligence agency.

Stern’s postions were:

On gun control: I believe in keeping weapons out of the hands of criminals and in the hands of law-abiding citizens.

On national defense: It also means not getting into wars that are not in the interests of the U.S. and its allies, which he sees as “a waste of blood and treasure”, that diverts “funding and investment” from our critically important problems and challenges”.

On personal responsibility and rights: It is not the responsibility of government to pressure corporations like Facebook and Twitter to restrict the speech of those of whom they do not approve.

However, Stern “decided” not to run, in favor of endorsing Fetterman. Undoubtedly, there is some hidden history there.

It is to be hoped that some of the better candidates who were defeated, such as Frank Agovino and too many others to mention, will choose to run for office again.

Full disclosure: I saw the line “a better man than Fetterman” on a Dr. Oz sign.
