Presently, I am viewing an historic moment in American history; the confirmation of the first African American woman nominated to the highest court of the land. Baring a cataclysmic event, such as an asteroid hurtling toward the planet and landing on the congressional committee, or Senator Lindsey Graham having a case of the vapors, Judge Katanji Brown Jackson will be confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice. Nonetheless, regardless of Judge Jackson’s exemplary credentials, including decades of experience, clarity, integrity, and awe-inspiring intellect, a number of Republican policy makers will object to her nomination. These narrowminded individuals seemingly relish being on the wrong side of history, again and again. Fortunately, decent Americans have the ability to kick these racist, xenophobic, obstructionists to the curb by voting them out of office. Therein lies the difference between democratic forms of government and dictatorial regimes. In Russia, for example, voter’s deposit their ballots into a shredder and the current despot remains the ruler of the land. At the end of the day, Thomas Jefferson said: “Eternal vigilance is the price of Liberty.” I believe eternal vigilance requires voting at the local level, voting in the midterms, and voting for a good and decent President. Vote!
