I was having a telephone conversation with my youngest son and was complaining that this country might be headed down a very black hole. His comment to me was this, "Dad, you won't be around to see the worst that is coming."
I am old enough to remember the looks on people's faces squeezing those pink tabs to make margarine look like butter. I can remember the gas sticker on my aunt's 1938 Chevrolet. I can also remember helping with a 5c that would buy one stamp for one US War Bond. The country was united. It is no more.
The Supreme Court of the U.S. is now the central government. No longer will the majority or the minority have much say. We are dealing with the likes of a person similar to a mafia don urging people to believe his lies about the election; about people he dislikes and ruling via electronic messages and outright lies so numerous counters have stopped trying.
We have a Texas Senator named Ted Cruz so beholden to an entity, not his constituents, that he bows and scrapes for the millions he gets from the the NRA. Cruz is just one that seems to giggle along with his many friends that taking away is fine and taking away not to help the country but bring us all closer to rule by fiat.
I noticed this morning that Chuck Fleischmann is up for reelection. If that is true we hear from him only when it is time to gain a vote. The United States needs to take a collective deep breath and decide where to go and with whom? Worse than a blind date, the country sorely needs leadership and leadership for the people and not for more power for an individual.
Ron DeSantis so wants to rule by fiat he has stated just recently that health injections for small children now available cannot be brought into Florida. He decides that Disney World in Florida can no longer operate as a company solely responsible for all its roads and upkeep. Instead his decree now includes billions owed by Disney and assumed now for Florida citizens. Does power corrupt and in this so-called representative government can one man or few men rule for the rest of us?
