Diary 205

Friday, October 9th

Today I placed my ballot in the special box provided by the town. The ‘president’ may oppose mail-in ballots, but this was hand delivered. Unlike some of his henchmen I believe in democracy. I’m thinking of Utah senator Mike Lee (R), who declared that “democracy isn’t the objective’ in the US system. He was, I suppose, democratically elected. If he opposes that, then it would be logical to suggest he step down forthwith. 

Lee also stated “we’re not a democracy”. He clearly hasn’t read a certain famous document that begins, “We the people…” Most of know it as the preamble to the Constitution.  He also has tested positive for Covid, which may have some bearing on the matter as he’s probably been taking one of the ‘president’s’ touted cures, and is therefore likely to be as daft as a brush.  And yet….strangely enough Lee seems to have described the present state of the US accurately.
