Ever since his arrival in the Oval Office, his prevalent behaviors have devalued the office of the president. Few people feel ambivalent when it comes to the nature of the man, and anyone who values the survival of the American republic and who takes the time to objectively evaluate the damage he has done — and is continuing to do — knows that the only way to bring about a revival of the country we once cherished is to act decisively to ensure his removal from office at the election in November.
My fear, however, is that, even though his overall approval rating is low, he and his rabid loyalists will believe his election loss to be invalid and will rise up against his rivals, and create an upheaval of our democracy so deep into the valley of medieval chaos that it will never be restored.
I hope I’m wrong.
Written for today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill. Our assignment is to “find a word that starts with ‘val,’ or if you’re not doing the A to Z Challenge, find a word that just has ‘val’ in it, and use that word any way you’d like.” I am doing the A to Z Challenge, but I have found words that both start with “val,” but also contain “val” in them.
