We are about 133 days to go until our November election. Can we endure this time period? If the news reports and polls are any way to judge, Trumpee is doomed to be eliminated in a convincing way. So, we can expect the fool to try the most egregious methods to distract our attention, and desperately hold on to power. There are some signs that his political support is slipping, but not enough to get giddy about. It seems that Orange screed machine is now reduced to finding solace in right-wing triggers and racist memes. His refusal to stand before the public and address allegations of complicity in the bounty killings of American soldiers is despicable. There are no excuses for him. His cowardly inaction as a war time leader against the Corona virus is a stain that has endangered public health and reduced the USA to be rated as 3rd world. Hoping that "it will all disappear, like a miracle" is not effective public policy. We now know that being a citizen of the United States of America goes beyond raising one finger up in the air and yelling "We are Number One". No, No, No.... being a citizen in this Democracy means that we must work hard to preserve our liberties, freedoms, and safe communities by staying alert to people and ideologies that corrupt. We need to be educated, informed, and work to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box, and to elect those from among us who are guided by the political savy to preserve the Constitution. Today, HCR takes us into the Swamp of those who do not represent the best of who we are, who are in fact a menace and a danger:
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.
