Thanksgiving 2020

In October, I made the campaign to elect Joe Biden the focus of my attention: we accomplished that goal, so, now it’s time to check-in with my friends on WordPress to give thanks.

First, I want to acknowledge the more than 260,000 Americans who are not alive this Thanksgiving because of the outgoing president’s criminally corrupt enablers.

Each death represents a family in mourning.

I pray the Republican Party can find its way back to the land of fact-based governance and the Rule of Law.

The untold story of the 2020 election is of the coalition of liberals, centrists, and conservatives who united to preserve our democracy.

Thank you to the more than 80 Million Americans who voted for Joe Biden; we turned out in numbers #TooBigToRig.

Thank you to the Lincoln Project; we couldn’t have won without you:

Thank you to people who understand that the United States is not a perfect democracy and who never stop striving to perfect it.

Thank you to my family of life long friends; your patience and love make me a better man.

Thank you to my partner for decades of friendship and love; you are a gift from God.

Thank you to my doctors and therapists: I am so much healthier because of you.

Thank you to the many friends I have made with this blog; your honesty, talent, and skill inspire me.

Thank you to the people who wrote to ask me how I’m doing.

Thank you to President Biden and Madam Vice-President Kamala Harris for proving that we can continue to make progress in the darkest of times.

Thank you to the millions of Americans who spent the Trump years resisting white supremacy, homophobia, child abuse, and outright lies.

“Democracy is not a state; it is an act.”

And thank you to the folks at #DemCast; let’s win those senate seats in Georgia!

Have a safe and loving Thanksgiving.
