The secret to inner peace is to learn to accept that.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. -- Helen Keller

growing up in America, where I knew we were a democracy that followed laws. that's out the window. i don't mean the daily normal insecurity. i know better than most people that we can die at any time for instance. this is different.

It's so damned discouraging, watching these clowns make a mockery of our Constitution. How far are they willing to go? How far are their enablers willing to allow them to go?

I guess we'll all find out soon enough.

we're about to learn whether America will slide into Autocracy.

Trump "joked" about ruling as a despot yesterday. He used that word, which I'm shocked he knew.

This isn't funny. There will be blood in the streets before the end.

i don't think we'll have an all out war, but i definitely agree that regardless of the outcome there will be violence. i know i'll be in the streets marching and protesting until he's not president any more.
