Sometimes it's all too much...often it is...

There are times when I want to scream in the face of every human being I see that they don't need to take our democracy for granted, that many nations have fallen into fascism in the past. Why can't people see that is what is happening to this nation? They are so worried about socialism, they ignore the grave danger of corruption that is steering the once greatest nation in the world straight into the abyss of fascism. I can become quite despairing, knowing that democracy is hanging on by a thread.

But then I remember that yes, nations have fallen to corrupt leadership before. But nations have also risen up against those corrupt forces, demanded and received justice and accountability for acts against their freedoms. And the ones who corrupted and exploited were sent to prison or death or some other venue of accountability. I will hold onto that thought and remember it when Trump's blatent disregard for law again screams in our faces.

4. Taking The House of Representatives in 2018 is not chicken counting.

That stoped it. And in November the Blue tsunami will finish them off hopefully for a long time.

3. This experiment isn't over yet

Take heart. We know this is a relatively young experiment, and we've survived so far. Of course we are at danger of losing it, that is built into it's very nature. The important thing is that we have not yet lost it. We will always be on the edge of losing it, which means we must fight for it continually. Take heart, and keep fighting the good fight.
