WE JUST ABOUT HAVE SEEN/HEARD IT ALL, INCLUDING A NEAR PHYSICAL ATTACK ON A CANDIDATE. No one knows for certain, who planned and organized the near-riots in Chicago, but I am hoping that no one HERE, takes any pleasure in another 1968-style Chicago type revolt. I watched that one unfold on TV, 48 years ago. It was VERY scary, and told a lot of disappointed people around the world, we were a big, incipient Cowboy lynch mob, instead of the Leader of the Free World. Luckily, LBJ's AG did not over-react, and I am hoping our Justice Department will similarly keep their cool.
I believe the so-called "debates" have done us a BIG favor, if only in holding up the mirror to us and showing us the sheer ugliness that has permeated our society------the sheer frustration and anger that seems to have transcended REASONABLENESS, and is now pushing our descent down toward almost pure aggression. VERBAL aggression does not seem enough-----Physical aggression, it seems, MUST be resorted to. I will risk your almost universal contempt by saying we are a sick society, and we had better focus on HEALING, to become our own saviors, before we figure out HOW and BY WHOM to be governed.
I pray that the Almighty will renew the shining potential of this USA; I pray that the Almighty will REMOVE the deep polarization that exists between our peoples, for our own sakes, so that we may get on with our healing.
