Legislating from truth, integrity and love. Wow. What a notion. These precepts hold for those of us supporting legislators of truth, integrity and love as well. This is the simple context for being a World Five Politician. We see that we are all here together, sharing life at this moment, and we side with truth and love. Which means we live in integrity.
So it's come down to one of this group of three leading our republic for the next four years, if they can keep breathing that long. Seems sad somehow. Not that we've ever been the Great Nation the government public relations people claim, but we seem to have reached a new low in our 'democracy'.
Trump, Biden and Sanders. Clearly old, clearly white, clearly men. At least one is a sociopath, caring for nothing beyond himself, he's clearly unable to see beyond his own interests, even in the midst of a pandemic.
November's Midterm Election ushered in the beginning of a new era - mainstream progressive politics. Right here in the good ol' USA. We haven't seen this kind of energy since the 1960s, which gave us the Equal Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, the women's liberation movement and the EPA, for starters. Resistance to war and meme's like 'Free Love' filled the air.
As we wind our way to Election, 2018, there is a wide variety of possibilities to unfold. From Trump's 'there may be a red wave' to the possibility of a blue tsunami where Democrats take the Senate as well as the House.
This year's election is surely crucial, the stakes never higher in my lifetime. If we get more of the same, we will hopefully survive, but we do not improve our fare or our Earth.
