We must restore balance in capital
The occupier of the White House has sown seeds of discord through tweets and rage-raising rallies which recently reaped a harvest of hate at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh and pipe bombs targeting those who invoked presidential venom. Almost daily Trump demonstrates he does not comprehend the Constitution he has sworn to uphold, claiming he has the power to overturn the 14th Amendment, wrenching citizenship away from Americans in selected groups he abhors.
Unfortunately, we have lost the equilibrium of the balance of powers envisioned by the founders. This Congress rarely stand up to his worst instincts and he has tipped the balance of power in the Supreme Court.
I would have supported Josh Harder for District 10 because he is the superior candidate, but I am now inspired not just to vote but to work tirelessly to elect him because of the clear and present danger Trump represents to American democracy.
