“PATRIOTIC OPPOSITION TO DONALD TRUMP” (ANOTHER IMPORTANT PIECE BY CHARLES M. BLOW)

Another great piece by Charles M. Blow in today’s N Y Times (12/12/16

And, within this important N Y Times Op-Ed is the following:

In a 1780 letter written to a fellow revolutionary considering “retiring into private life,” staunch abolitionist Samuel Adams — a man strongly opposed to slavery and therefore one of my favorite founders — wrote:

“If ever the Time should come, when vain & aspiring Men shall possess the highest Seats in Government, our Country will stand in Need of its experienced Patriots to prevent its Ruin. There may be more Danger of this, than some, even of our well disposed Citizens may imagine. If the People should grant their Suffrages to Men, only because they conceive them to have been Friends to the Country, without Regard to the necessary Qualifications for the Places they are to fill, the Administration of Government will become a mere Farce, and our pub-lick Affairs will never be put on the Footing of solid Security.”

There is no other time to which this could apply more perfectly than now. This is not the time for the “retiring” of “experienced patriots.” A “vain and aspiring” man now possesses the highest seat in government and the administration of the government is on the verge of becoming a farce.

America needs you … now. Speak up.

And below, please sign this petition to stop all Trump appointees.
