Thanks very much for this article, Elliott, very thoughtful. Also discouraging. The fact that Congress and the DNC are focused on closets full of fantasies instead of reality just makes me keep my passport ready. How can they be so unattached to reality? I have no clue what "woke" means and neither has anyone else. But we should all know not to let the enemy define us with their terminology. Like "woke." The reality of people today is it's impossible to buy a house, the climate is killing everybody, there is no good news, and there is no common cause, as you point out.
My proposed sentence for DJT, Putin, deSantis, McConnell, et al: paint them black and make them live out their days black people in St. Louis.
