Darkness falls on the republic.

Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Leonard Cohen

 

So very many reasons to vote no today.  Chief among them the chance to save the Supreme Court.  So many people chose not to do so.  You don’t get that many chances in a life to be a hero.  Don’t squander the one that comes your way.  Don’t be a Ben Sasse, a Jeff Flake, a Susan Collins.  For god’s sake, don’t grow up to be Lindsey Graham.
