Americans are facing multiple crises due to COVID19 and the cascade of issues that stems from a failure of leadership. We have been asked in the past ‘Who do you want to have a beer with?” to choose a leader. The question was always disingenuous because it asked people to feel comfortable at a level that disregarded the capacity to manage something as complex as the executive branch of the US government. It used to be said by politicians such as John F. Kennedy that you could not trust someone who did not drink. Donald Trump doesn’t drink, but too many Americans chose him because they felt he was a change. Now we exist in an absurd time where people at home and abroad are shocked at the incompetence of an America that has no rational answers for anything. We have a president that adversaries want to see victorious because he strengthens their goal of being dominant in the world as American influence collapses. We do not lead or trend in the right direction on climate change, response to COVID, race relations, or anything important. America faces a defining choice in the election of 2020. Make sure you research and vote your values in this and every election!
