Unite to fight the monster


 

You may think by my previous posts, that I'm absolutely sure about which way the country should turn--you'd be 100% wrong--I am not certain of anything, except about current path, it's disastrous, and if we don't do something different, and what it is I'm not sure, although I have my opinions, our country will be in a world of hurt for a long time, if it's not already too late. The people who can't see that, who think we're headed exactly in the right direction, are willfully blind to reality. I realize my preference of a President Hillary Clinton is one not shared by some, if not most of you, which is fine, you have a right to disagree, but I think not to the point of ending up in the terrible mess the country finds itself in now. I keep hearing that there's going to be a constitutional crisis if Trump fires Robert Mueller--I would argue we are already in one, if it doesn't rise to a constitutional crisis, then no one can argue it rises to a moral one.

 

It distresses me to see the Democratic Party unwilling to compromise enough to stop the degrading of our government. The Republicans certainly are able to stick together, even if they're absolutely wrong, so, while I hear Democrats saying they'll show the Republicans, I don't see it. Now is the time we Democrats need to stop fighting among ourselves, and pull together to save human dignity. I've heard it said that we need to show what we stand for, that hating of Trump's not enough, and while that's certainly true, I say it's reason enough.
