When people vote…

It would take a book to detail Washington’s tragic turn, since January 2017, toward racism, classism, bellicosity, isolationism, jeopardy to our relations with long-standing allies, indifference to the daily-life needs of Americans, and just plain incompetence (with agency heads moving in and out at record speed).

But the moral is: When people vote, ultimately the government has to pay attention. It may not be fast enough to suit us, but it’s what we have to do.  -Nathaniel Smith

PS  One of the penalties for
refusing to participate in
politics is that you end up
being governed by your
inferiors.

              -Plato, circa 400 B.C.
