DJT in all his Glory
The past four years were shocking, frightening, and depressing, even long before the Covid disaster.
The previous occupant of the White House, with the help of a feckless, power-obsessed Senate and House, and an overtly biased Attorney General, disproved the founding fathers’ assumptions by taking every advantage of the excessive powers of the Presidency. He abused EVERYONE, behaved corruptly, without honor, and thus far got away with it! To top it off, he still petulantly refuses to accept the results of a fair, certified and ratified election by claiming, against all evidence to the contrary, and every court ruling, that HE actually won.
As a result, we have seen just how many vulnerabilities there are in our system of government. The founders obviously took too many things for granted – presuming that character, honor and integrity would prevail in (most of) those we select to represent us. They also assumed that if any weaknesses or malfeasance might crop up, these were addressed when they instituted the “balance of power” between branches of government.
Now that this growing predilection toward abuse of power has become rampant, we as honest citizens MUST insist these issues be addressed in great depth, and with the utmost seriousness. The status quo is no longer acceptable in ANY branch of government. We MUST demand that our “representatives” in every branch muster all their courage and and integrity to rise to this challenge. Not doing so risks our very democracy!
