America: A Republic in Search of a Savior


                                        Good Day World!

In these stressful times under a wannabe tyrant, Americans are looking for relief from the daily chaos coming out of The White House.

The only possible answer to ending that chaos and protecting our Democracy and values, is to vote Trump out of office in November.

In the search for a savior, the Democrats have narrowed it down to five presidential possibilities: Joe Biden; Mike Bloomberg; Pete Buttigieg; Amy Klobuchar; Bernie Sanders; and Elizabeth Warren. 

Meanwhile, while the search narrows down, Trump and minions are having a grand old time degrading the Justice Department by flaunting laws and traditions.

The fate of a nation based on laws and equality is at stake.

The question is whether the Democratic party can get behind the eventual winner of the primary process and present a united front against Trump?

If, for instance, Bernie's (infamous Bernie Bros) followers refuse to accept anyone but him, even if he loses the primaries, that will be an incalculable blow to a unified Democratic voting bloc. 

There's no room for errors, or re-does.

If the Democrats don't get it right this time and motivate the maximum amount of voters in every state, Trump will be reelected.

Our republic won't survive, as envisioned by the founders, with four more years of depredations in every branch of government. 

As it is, the new president is going to have a real challenge undoing the damage Trump's already wrought on all of our intelligence agencies, the Department of Justice, the State Department, the Treasury Department, and Congress.

There is hope. There's always hope.

I believe there's enough Americans who want to end the reign of our reality show president that they will turn out in record numbers to vote for his Democratic challenger (whomever that may be).

As someone who came of age in the 1960s, I've seen this country meet every challenge and continue to move on with the challenges each decade presented.

That we're a republic that needs a savior every so often, is nothing new under the sun.
