Our democracy is under institutional deconstruction and severe attack by an entertaining autocrat because the Republican Party and Republican political leaders have abdicated democracy’s gate keeping responsibility! As the 2020 Presidential Election unfolds it feels necessary to outline an image of the American “character” we are working to evolve. The desired result: to facilitate voting for a political leader who can lead our democratic Nation. Here is a “character” perspective…
