All we hear about these days is hard-lined partisan bickering, centered around party and individual self-interest. Now we face the possibility of a mutually agreed upon “stalemate”, technically a “shut down”! In the meantime, COVID-19 cases and deaths are still soaring, businesses are hurting, and people are starving and threatened with more evictions.
My response is easier to state than explain in short space:
Shut Down? Shut up!
Step up or Step Down!
Run the country, not for election!
“We the People” didn’t default,
But we’ll be looking for
Those at fault!
See you next election!
