At The Denver Post, Air Force Major General (ret.) Irv Halter points out that “it’s not the economy, stupid.” Here’s a bit from his article (emphasis added):
We’re Americans. We do not swear an oath to a leader or to a political party. We are a nation of laws and owe allegiance to the Constitution alone. We have fought for it, died for it. When the Constitution is subverted, the danger to our Republic reaches far beyond our disagreements about politics and culture. Within it, we can accomplish anything, debate anything, fix anything. Outside of it, the American enterprise dies.
What happened leading up to Jan. 6, 2021, was an organized attack on our founding document and nation. Despite overwhelming evidence, people who should have been saying “no” to the lie and the liar, instead marched in lockstep behind him.
