Harper, I do know that you and many men are on the side of women. But, far from enough. Most men I know, even those who claim to be feminists, think women are inferior physically, mentally, and emotionally — bundles of uncontrolled nerves and emotions.

We’ve lost the Supreme Court for decades. Voting can’t change that. We will be on the losing end for the rest of my life. I’ll certainly be dead before there is a reclamation of the Court IF we still have a Court or a democracy left by then.

You mentioned Mueller and the investigation. Now, it’s a joke. Kavanaugh was the last nail in that coffin. Nothing will happen to Trump and in the extremely slim chance he does get convicted, he will never pay for his crimes. He will be pardoned but I doubt we get to that point. Impeachment? Even most the Democrats in the Senate are not in favor in a drawn-out impeachment process. NOTHING WILL STOP TRUMP.

Honestly, I feel like my senior year high school government class was a waste of time. Never was I taught that the president has as much power as Trump wields. Call me ignorant but many well-educated people say the same. There is so much he decreed that I thought had to be passed by Congress. Even if Democrats take Congress there is still so much harm Trump can do.

The years of Trump have taught me I know much less about my government than I thought I did and that the power of the president is much wider and deeper than I ever knew. I now know our votes are just a small cog in the wheel, a wheel that will continue running over us for a very long time to come.

Just stating the facts.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
