This is a good and timely reminder for all of us. For every right we have as a citizen of this great country, we also have responsibilities. We must never forget that the freedoms and the rights we have been given can be erased in a generation. Democracy only works if we take care of it and make sure it isn’t intentionally eroded.
It is up to us to take charge. We have to make the changes necessary to save our republic. We can do it, but we have to work together to make it happen. Get involved. Know the issues. Be proactive and above all, VOTE.
The Republican Party is complicit. The judgement of history will not be gentle nor kind to those in power who refuse to curb the lying pig we now have in the oval office. Those Republicans that shamefully continue protecting the president by refusing to honor their oath of office need to be treated like the traitors they have become. They will get the dishonor they deserve.
This is only too obvious when one looks at the present leadership of our country. The already legendary ignorance of the racist, self-avowed whore-monger in the White House is matched only by his fear, greed and intolerance. It is a volatile combination that is a true existential danger to the values on which our nation was founded.
