To really understand what is at stake in 2020 I strongly encourage you to listen carefully to the last 14+ minutes of Adam Schiff’s 2:20 hour address to the opening of the impeachment trial.
This new pride does not erase my personal responsibility for the apathy and lack of attention that I have paid in the past to the threats that have been developing over the past several decades. In a very real way, I am responsible too.
I did not look. I did not see. I intentionally blinded myself to the reality that slowly but surely the wheels were falling off the wagon. I was wowed by the intellect and governing of people like Obama and a congress that seemed to be keeping everything in check and balance.
Does this sound familiar - no, I mean really - does this ring any bells for you? “We” must now recommit ourselves to fight for who we are due to the democratic freedom we enjoy.
Now - I / we must act to safeguard the constitution and restore confidence in our government that is so severely eroded.
Act now - please, we cannot again be part of the 30% of eligible voters who did not vote due to our apathy.
