I miss not having to check news sources every few hours

This constant barrage of news, speculation, what-ifs and maybes is just exhausting. Even during the worst of the criminality of George the Lesser, I did not feel compelled to check multiple news sources at least a dozen times a day. The calm of the Obama years, even with the obstruction and dirty tricks of the repugs we were reassured that the man at the top, and those around him, had our backs and the interests of the majority of our citizens.
Here we are in the midst of the concerted efforts of seemingly every single person with and R after their name to reshape our beloved democracy into the wet dream of a wannabe dictator with delusions of epic grandeur.
I trust that our elected Democrats are doing everything possible to get our country back, and to get right with the world.

1. Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom;

Most of us were unaware we lost 1000 seats from 2010 forward so maybe we needed to check in and not stick our heads in the sand.

We also did not pay attention to those warning about Russian interference until after the 2016 election-when it was too late.

Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom

2. This is surely the most exhausting time period of our lives. Want a break, Americans? Vote 'em out.

3. When this mess started, I remember someone posting

About how it was kind of exciting and people jumped all over him/her. I actually kind of agreed to a small extent, but also knew the dangers that lurked in the future and had no idea the destruction he could do in such a short amount of time.
Bonus: When he was elected, I thought for sure he would get us nuked within a couple of months, so there's that.
