Okay. Maybe just participated in one.
Shortly after 6 a.m. I scraped the frost off the minivan windows, drove down the road, and stood in line to vote.
For over two hundred years we have been doing this. Has it been perfect? No. For some time it was only white, male, property owners. For a time it was only white males. For a time it was only white people. It’s been a struggle to get it right. But it has been, for the most part, a peaceful struggle.
There was no echo of artillery fire this morning. No enforcers making sure you voted for the “right” man. No “ballots” with only one candidate. No riots. The only thing mumbled against was the lack of coffee. (And come on, we’re standing in line at 6 in the morning!)
No this nation and its history is not by any means perfect. As a nation it shares the fate of all other kingdoms not Christ’s: utter destruction. But I think history, whatever may be left of it, will judge that we gave it a valiant effort. It was fun while it lasted.
