Daily Camera (Boulder)
This democracy will heal
The political leadership of our nation has descended into abuse of power and rule of power and ignorance, and not rule of law as our founders intended. Power corrupts and is corrupting. We are concerned about the divisiveness and dysfunction and dishonesty and subversion in our current political leadership. This is not the Nation well conceived by our founders.
But this inability to govern well and honorably will pass, and our democracy will heal. It always has.
After our War of Independence that pitted loyalists against revolutionaries, after our Civil War, that pitted brother against brother and deeply divided this nation, after the Great Depression, after the viciousness of Mccarthyism, after the deeply dividing Vietnam War, after these and other bad times emerged very good leaders.
Our democracy will again heal. It will just require good people to once again come forth and lead us. And it will take time … and our involvement, our commitment.
