Are there things wrong with the way our government works? Yes, many. Are our politicians perfect and blameless? No, not a one. Do we have economic and political equality? No!!!! Do we need to work harder to live up to the promise of our nation? Without question! Should we make perfect the enemy of the better? Really?

Do some people not realize what a real threat to democracy Donald Trump represents? A second term for Trump, aided and abetted by McConnell and Barr, could mean the end of all the (imperfect) social progress that’s been made over the last century. The people behind Trump — not the Trump dupes at his rallies — want an America far different from the one we want. They have no respect for rights other than their own and want to guarantee their wealth and political power at the expense of the rest of us. For the sake of us all, don’t let that happen!
