In his “Citizenship in a Republic”, Theodore Roosevelt stated that “the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.” The republic, what of it may remain, is now a polarizing place full of extremes in every facet of our lives.
There can be no question where America stands now. It stands on the precipice of something altogether different from what it once claimed to be: a republic.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) filed a federal lawsuit (pdf) on Dec. 27 against Vice President Mike Pence in order to give Pence exclusive authority over the electoral votes that will be counted on Jan. 6.
My greatest worry regarding the retention of our Constitution isn’t the federal government getting too big, though it is massive and continues to expand.
This is a redress of grievance.
