Our Constitution begins with “We the People.,” not “I the person.” It says, “promote the general welfare,” not the individual welfare. Sadly, far right voters seem unwilling to address their responsibilities, and rant instead about their rights - guns, vaccines, free speech, small government…

After the first several hearings from the January 6 Select Committee I am even more fearful for our democracy. Hearing former Trump conservative allies describe the disgraceful actions to block the peaceful transfer of power and overturn the results of a free and fair election was chilling. …
