What do we have to lose from a landslide of Second Amendment salutes shooting down First Amendment rights, by rebuffing the embellishment of You're a Grand Ol' Flag's Red, White and Blue, with shades of brown, black and yellow -- Liberty and justice for all means, freedom is not limited to those of us resembling Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and a wannabe Birther-in-Chief.

Merely speaking one's superman mind to twits with tasteless tweets, can't transpose trending truth: government is the problem transformed United We Stand into Capitol Hill dung heap. When a people feel bullied, left behind, forgotten, deprived of the means to provide for themselves, hopelessness can express itself in a multitude of violent ways.

Surviving our Great Recession, by creating our great economic divide, we shouldn't be shocked that, Shock and Awe, has been the light upon our pathway to a Divided We Fall potential.

Even the .1% are searching for an out-of-this-world exit from what they've created: an electorate triad of the enraged, the repulsed and worst of all, the undecided. Our elections have not always been a choice of the lesser of two evils, but what justification is there for choosing, by default or acclamation, the worst of two evils?

We're taught, before crossing the street, if we don't look both Left and Right, we could lose our life. As adults, not choosing forward over reversal, we could lose our nation.

Truthfully, progression is better than regression, Constitutional gender equality beats income disparity and Marijuana can heal while opioids kill -- so what the hell do you have to lose"

There is no greatness in Misogyny, Xenophobia, Islamophobia or Homophobia -- and The Trail of Tears, Anti-Catholic, Antisemitism, No Irish Need Apply, Japanese Internment, racial segregation and Jim Crow gerrymandering remain historical antagonists to our greatness. -- and those who elect to re-inject these nightmares into our American Dream, are not only deplorable, but delusional.

Which is worse, a bout of email pneumonia or being trumped into that which decays from within? Hate is a boomerang with tentacles embedded by the embittered, blinded by nefarious nationalistic nonsense, aided and abetted by a media so hungry for notoriety, it's easily nonplused into free press for the treasonous.

What do we have to lose: Talent, Wisdom, Culture, Courage - Humanity!
