Normally, I have what is called a political aversion, meaning I don’t want to participate in one of the three conversations that you are taboo in public. As of the last few months, my feelings have changed obviously. But I can no longer stand idly by and watch the anger, violence and the inflammation of our society being harnessed for the purpose of one person’s objective to be the President of the United States. The prejudice in this election continues to be unchecked by the leaders of one particular party. Too much is at stake and by staying silent in this contentious election then I would consider myself an ethical and moral coward.
Not to many years ago another man prayed on the frustration of people, they wanted someone to save them, protect them, and they elected Hitler. Throughout the millennia, megalomaniacs have been freely elected and the outcome has been even more division, anger, and violence.
In 1770 the Irish statesman and philosopher Edmund Burke wrote about the need for good men to associate to oppose the cabals of bad men.
No man, who is not inflamed by vain-glory into enthusiasm, can flatter himself that his single, unsupported, desultory, unsystematic endeavours are of power to defeat the subtle designs and united Cabals of ambitious citizens. When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.
