Many of you, from around our great nation, will have received your ballots by mail. So, fill them out and vote. In past elections the choice came down to perceived differences in policy. That is, reasonable minds could differ on the policy objectives of a particular party that would dictate a common objective – to build a more perfect union. The sole objective in our democracy is to “form a more perfect union” as that goal is embodied in the preamble to the Constitution:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution.”
Our Union supposed to get better over time, not worse. When the president ignores the Constitution and destroys the fundamental underpinnings of it’s validity at every turn we all lose our freedom. These past 4 years are demonstrably worse for America by all measures – economy, health, racial injustice and inequality, individual rights, the general welfare of all citizens, voting etc. All of these failings are the symptoms of a failing democracy. These symptoms are caused by the personal failure of Trump to be a President for all people. The disease is Trumpism. Notably, the current occupant of the office of the President is a corrupt pathological liar incapable of executing the office of the President or carrying out the duties of the office i.e upholding the oath every president, upon assumption of the office, swears:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
If the past 4 years portends the next 4 years then America is truly lost if Trump is re-elected. So, regardless of your view of the perceived deficits of Biden, vote as if your life depends upon it, because it probably does.
