n.e.s. #160 of 480: TRVTH

2020 0926 nes160

I live in the city of Phoenix, Arizona, in the United States of America. It is the fourth year of the Trump administration, and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just died. Our nation’s Flag is at half mast, a sign of respect, yet Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish, that her replacement not be chosen until after the 2021 inauguration, is being disrespected by the leaders of the Republican-majority Senate, even though honoring her request would also be honoring the word of these selfsame Republicans, who said back in 2016 that a new Justice ought not be chosen until it reflected “the will of the people,” i.e. the election.

It is a sign of the times in my country that Honesty and Decency have been discarded by those in power for the sake of retaining power, “will of the people” notwithstanding. We are in danger of becoming a dictatorship.

A dose of Truth–REAL Truth–and acceptance of Truth, however contrary to what people WISH were the Truth, would do a lot to put my beleaguered country back on track. But too many of us think we can vote for Truth the same way we vote for our candidates. And that, Friends, is insane.
