With the recent exchange of definitions of the events of Jan. 6, 2021, and the continuance thereof, I thought I would inject another important word regarding our nation — democracy, which is "the principle of equality of rights, opportunities, and treatment."
Are we there yet? It seems not.
We legitimately elected a new president; but that doesn't seem to have sunk in with the Republicans. Why? Is it not the idea to treat all Americans equally?
Why is it then that the Republicans don't want to support our new leader in his efforts to be of value to all classes of Americans and not just the upper-class, rich citizens?
Just when do the Republicans think it will be a time to recognize the fact that America is made up of all kinds of people, you know, those who they're supposed to represent?
If the equality of rights is supposed to be with us, then why are our legislators choosing to only represent a few?
Who has the answers that will please all Americans?
