To me, being an American means you can live in a country with the same rule of Rule of Law which affords every person the right to be the best that person can be.

Regardless of skin color, sex, or sexual orientation it means this country will give you a shot if you’re willing to pay the price.

It means rich, old white men shouldn’t have a vote which means anymore than the the Average Joe.

Democracy isn’t apartheid.

It means we all play by the same rules of engagement.

It means we honor the law and what our democracy and the Rule of Law should provide to each and everyone of us.

All of us…not just rich white guys on Mitch Mconnell’s donors list for special projects.

All of us.

In my mind…that’s why all of us should vote even thought at times it seems maddening.
