We will have to see how this Supreme Court pick works out. Maybe she’ll be the shill that some conservatives hope she is, maybe not. But here’s the thing, the branches of government might be designed to be a check on each other, but the American Citizens are a check on the branches of government. If we want healthcare for all, there will be. If we want equal rights, there will be. Changes to our immigration, Supreme Court and infrastructure? There will be.

If we do our jobs then those we employ to do their jobs, will. What we’re experiencing right now is several generations of American Citizens not doing their jobs. This doesn’t end at election time, not if you want a better country.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
