MEMORIAL DAY is set aside to commemorate those who sacrificed their lives in the service of this country. We all know they were not defending the president, any one individual, or even a piece of real estate, but the principles enshrined in our Constitution. Now is the time for all truly patriotic Americans to stand up to a Republican Party, which watches complacently as Donald Trump shreds our Constitution. Alexander Hamilton cautioned us to be on guard against such a scenario in Federalist Papers #68. He said it was to be expected that the “….most deadly adversaries of republican government might… make their approaches from… foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?” our “… most deadly adversaries of republican government…” And isn’t this exactly what has occurred? Donald Trump, “a creature” of a foreign adversary has been raised up to destroy us from within.
On this sacred day when we give thanks and remembrance to those who gave their lives to protect our Constitution and with it We the People let’s all take the pledge to save our nation by doing two things:
First, each of us must take one action a week to push back against the anti-democratic forces working full-time to destroy our precious Constitution and with that our democracy; and
Two, help in any way you can to get your friends and neighbors to Vote Local to reclaim our local governments as well as our Congress. Take the EQUAL pledge: https://www.facebook.com/votelocaltaketheequalpledge2017/
