Blog Post # 266 – Us, Defenders of the Constitution

Strange being in our nation’s capital today.

Preparations are being made for a candidate that I voted against.

Voted against with passion.

I kick myself because I could have done more.

I could have paid more attention.

I could have worked for his opponent.

I could have done a lot more.

Yet, here we are.

In about six weeks, a demagogue will assume the Presidency.

A man who built his campaign on divisiveness.

On waging war against “the other.”

A man who received 2.5 million less votes than his opponent.

A man who has absolutely no clue as to how to run a country.

A buffoon. A delusional, conspiratorial buffoon.

But I don’t have a time machine.

I can’t go back and do more for his opponent.

All I have is our new reality.

So I came to the District of Columbia for the future.

For I anticipate filing lawsuits here to keep the government accountable.

To challenge the coming abuses of power, as well as those that are already occurring.

When I was sworn in today, I promised again to defend the Constitution.

That is what we do when we hold Presidents, bureaucrats and Congress accountable.

We defend the Constitution.

I fear we are going to be very busy.
