Under My Hat: Don Sarvey's Blog

February 23, 2020


It has been more than three years since I last posted in this blog. The election of Donald Trump in 2016 was so dispiriting that I lost the desire to keep commenting. Unfortunately, our fears were not groundless: Donald Trump turned out to be as bad as we thought he would be -- and much worse. So much worse.

Now, Americans have a second chance coming. Whether we can fight through the tangle of Russian meddling, Trumpist lies, and outright Republican criminality remains to be seen. The outlook can be discouraging, to be sure. But last week I watched the documentary "Washington" on the History Channel. Circumstances were almost hopeless when George Washington undertook leadership of the colonial army. But prevail he and his soldiers did. The story was a reminder that things don't always come easily (a today problem), and it was sufficient to ignite in me a tiny spark of optimism. Can we revive the spirit and the will to win that energized our forebears?

It's going to take everyone jumping in with both feet to beat Trump, no matter which opposition candidate we're backing right now. In the end, I'm all in for whoever runs against the mobster whose presence is besmirching the Oval Office. I hope you will be too.
