What Democrats should embrace in their soul.

Reading the Bhagavad Gita this morning, "A Walkthrough for Westerners" by Jack Hawley, i was struck by the following paragraph when Arjuna is dejected and does not wish to fight (his own family for that matter) and Krishna says to him...

"I know you are astounded at My lack of commiseration, but you must not yield to this feebleness! Truth and right can never be obtained by the weak. You are a great warrior, a proven winner. Cast off this faint-heartedness. Stand up, O scorcher of enemies!"

I do believe our President Joe Biden understands this and will go big without reservation. The time has passed for attempting unity with those whose actions do not match their words. The reThuglicans have lost all sense of decency and should not be considered as any type of rational or reasonable adult with whom we can find common ground. Just saying.

1. We need to govern like we KNOW we're right.

We have a damned mandate and need to use it. People overwhelmingly trounced the republicans in the presidential election and we ARE right. Trump and his minions are wrong. About everything!

2. I think you're right

However, I do think he'll offer to let them act in good faith. He has to let them prove how utterly dishonest and unwilling to act rationally they are.
