Well put! I have had hope in the Progressive Caucus and so many women, BIPOC and others (LGBTQ+) winning office; but we are facing an immediate crisis that is already too far gone. I hear you, and so many other disenfranchised people. I mean most of us, really! In fact, this was the cause of Trump in large part. But he was a con & a grifter & far worse. On the other hand, when has government ever been perfect or even very good at all? I suppose there are instances in history and even now, but the big question for us is what do we do? Do we push and become activists as I have actually been for some time or do we give up and organize our communities to prepare for the worst? What do you say? :)
