51. The all-or-nothing philosophy is one that continues to do more harm than good.

Those who abide by that way of thinking more frequently end up with the "nothing" end of the equation (and for some bizarre reason, appear to be quite satisfied about it.) In the end, the effect is to sabotage, cripple or kneecap the Biden agenda. They have no real power to accomplish anything meaningful, so instead they end up being a disruptive force.

All I'm trying to say is that we remain in an ALL HANDS ON DECK moment... now is not the time to rehash petty grievances or to demand "perfect" legislation at the expense of losing it all. The time for grandstanding and nit-picking Joe Biden (and his administration) is OVER! Progress (no matter how small) is still progress. It may not be "perfect" but any movement at all is closer to "perfect" than we are now. One step at a time. Building and growing along the way.

We'll get there... BUT... in order to do so, we and our elected representatives MUST come together and support EVERY bit of legislation, EVERY initiative, EVERY policy, EVERY executive order; EVERY appointment... WITHOUT FAIL!!
