I am coming to the conclusion that perhaps I was not meant to be on the ballot this round for reasons yet unknown. Unless someone, somewhere, has 1500 signatures in their pocket in the next 3 weeks!
I now see it as an opportunity to continue on in my quest for common sense and civil discourse in our politics. I may be able to accomplish more as an untethered protagonist in my writings than to be a low-man-on-the-totem-pole legislator. As long as you don't rehire Bruce Poliquin!
I will try to hold (along with all of you) whoever is elected to the values of the majority of Americans, and that is decency and fairness for all. We may be what others are saying about us, lazy about our involvement in our politics. If the past 2 years didn't prove that to you, I don't know what will. But change is coming, one way or another. We must persist!
To surrender to the thought of the present situation staying the way it is and progressing to a higher level is not an option! I will not and I hope a great many others will not!
My time will come, and I will be much better prepared for it, having gone through what I have and learning what I have.
I can only hope that the giant in the room, who has been awakened by 45, does not go back to sleep! Please keep prodding it every waking moment.
To the many people who read my posts, you have given me hope that we will overcome this political disaster. We must see to it that Republicans no longer control Congress after November! The only way they know how to govern is a reverse Robin Hood, take from the poor and give to the rich! It's what we do afterwards that matters, as this country has a long way to go to get back to where we were before this disaster struck us.
May peace be with you all.
