Papa’s gen speaks…

Here’s an eloquent, sobering assessment of the current disaster that is U.S. politics, from one of my father’s generation.


Democracy can die a slow death from a thousand cuts, inflicted by a few small men, wielding deadly little knives, drawing blood one drop at a time, on a slumbering people, who take their freedom for granted, and let it slip slowly away.

Even today, after 2000, after 2002, after 2004, there are stories in the news about abuses against the right to vote, committed by the same people, for the same reason, done the same ways, and yet the people who should care, don’t, and the people who should be fighting against this, aren’t.
