How do we respond to rediculous political maneuvering? We vote. But we vote for a person, not a political party.
This backlash has been festering for sixty years, and now we are worried?
I’m no fan of either political party, but the anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers and conspiracy weavers are not originals. Hitler used the same playbill.
Their prejudice runs deep and primordial—its etiology in our genetic history stretching back to pre-historic times. I’m not surprised and not optimistic, unless our national leaders can stop pretending they know who the enemy is and address the real problem—us.
Legislators can make all the voting restrictions they want, but in the end, it is up to each of us to get to the polls and cast our ballots.
It feels like the shot is giving us a time-out rather than a cure. Something impermanent and vague.

Give us back news worthy of our attention.
“Peace on earth, good will towards men, and spare us from the tyrants of this world.”
Unless we challenge the lies, we will continue to suffer the consequences.
