We Can Only Hope?

​This is one significant similarity between our moment in time and one of the past.

In that time and ours, the question on everyone’s mind was, will the elected leader do what everyone should expect them to do based on how they got to be elected? In our time, as I believe it must have been then, the hope of most was that despite what everyone knew about the new leader, the leader would distinguish between how they got to where they were and what they would do going forward. We know what happened then. Do we have any good reason to suppose, pray, that now will be different?

  1. We have indeed set a bad course, but have not begun to repent. Let’s all stand up and petition and persuade those now 306 electors not to let this happen.

  2. What he says is Republican platform, then he slides toward tyranny and fascism left to himself. Russia and Bright Bart are above him and below him, with the Republicans thinking they are the only ones putting policy into his head. Impeach Trump immediately: election fraud, intimidation of the press, foreign interference, emoluments, and no Teflon raincoat! Our nation is at stake, and the Republicans do not even need him.
