The 25th Amendment is clear when it comes to the peaceful transfer of power.
However, that does not mean that you know who understands or respects what our founders laid out when it comes to transitioning between Presidential administrations.
The question we have to ask, is this a sign of things to come?
I would argue that it is. As far back as I can remember, the more extremist among us were pushed back to the corners of our society. But you know who has given them the impetus to become more mainstream. When asked at the Presidential debate two weeks ago if he would call out White Supremacist groups, his response was “stand back and stand by”.
Thankfully, the authorities were able to stop the men before they could act on their plan. What bothers me is that things like this do not and should not happen in a thriving democracy. Will there political and social disagreements? Of course. We in the United States hear in the news about political uprisings and underhanded methods of stealing political power. But they happen in other countries. Knowing that it happened within our borders is a chilling message about the direction this country is going in.
You know who claims that he respects this country and everything it represents. He talks a good game, but his money is never his mouth is. We need a President who puts his money where his mouth is. That President is Joe Biden.
