Today I thought to myself: I no longer want to be a Democrat. (Actually the thought was much harsher than that, but I’m sure it will pass, like not wanting to be related.)

I can be a strong team player, but I’ve never been one for loyalty–beyond the heart…
And teams, like tribes, often demand it–at any cost–
winners/ losers
in/out
above/beneath
relevant/irrelevant
right/wrong
All of which gives way to the sneering & pillaging & rape–
of “other.”

This morning we drove behind a car covered in bumper stickers about “Truth.”
I’m old enough to know that two things can be true at the same time.
For example, Trump can be an abomination of our Presidency,
while serving as a rallying call to democracy–
around the world.
