These are the times that try men’s souls

Thomas Paine

Read Harvey J. Kaye’s article on Thomas Paine, Let Them Call Us Rebelscourtesy of Bill Moyer’s site.  Then read Thomas Paine’s Common Sense.

Here’s Paine on George III:  “…I should suffer the misery of devils, were I to make a whore of my soul by swearing allegiance to one whose character is that of a sottish, stupid, stubborn, worthless, brutish man.”

If that resonates, then get fired up.  Because Trump is coming and he’s unleashing the dogs of hate – racism, bigotry, xenophobia, gratuitous nastiness.   CNN is “trash”.  “Lock her up.”  “Get him out of here.”  Mock the disabled.  Trump has given license and it is in the air, in every internet Troll.  So read Kaye, and Paine, and Common Sense and get your blood boiling.

Stand up, protest, disrupt, march on the 21st.

Because we are better than this.  And Trump is almost here.
