voice for democracy

Christina Kauffman: Trump and his supporters still threatening our democracy – Greeley Tribune

Today we find ourselves in a serious pickle.
Some of our fellow Americans actually believe the election was rigged.  It was not.
Could the relief of DJT leaving the office he trashed be more palpable than thousands of Americans celebrating in their city streets in jubilation?  He lost and he is a bully so he will not leave us be.
With that in mind, I offer the following quote from author E.B. White, who brought us the beloved children’s books of “Stuart Little,” “Charlotte’s Web,” and “The Trumpet of the Swan”:
“(Democracy) is the line that forms on the right. It is the don’t in don’t shove. It is the hole in the stuffed shirt through which the sawdust slowly trickles; it is the dent in the high hat.
“Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half of the time.  It is the feeling of privacy in the voting booths, the feeling of communion in the libraries, the feeling of vitality everywhere.  Democracy is a letter to the editor.  Democracy is the score at the beginning of the ninth.  It is an idea which hasn’t been disproved yet, a song the words of which have not gone bad.  It’s the mustard on the hot dog and the cream in the rationed coffee.  Democracy is a request from a War Board, in the middle of a morning in the middle of a war, wanting to know what democracy is.”
The insurrectionists goaded by DJT, his cronies and gross misinformation need to know that their mission is without merit and endangers our children’s future.  The unnecessary recount of votes in Maricopa County, Arizona, is selfish and evil in intent.
All true patriots  need to come to the aid of our country.  Speak up before the voices that threaten our democracy win the day.
