Perhaps Saturday Night Live returns just in time to remind us, you really can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time -- and just like that, 2016 elections aren't funny anymore.

Soulmate, my aging cat, born on the streets, with a bad liver, a bad leg and now kidney issues, reminds me, like a Sons of Bill lyric, for some of the people some of the time, existence has been, dragging your life across the sands of time -- from Food Desert to College Loan Debt -- whether individual or nation, from dinner wine to morning after joe, The Twilight looks a whole lot like the Dawn.

It's not how little Trump, Stumpf, Romney and Koch brothers pay in taxes. It's the lawmakers we elected allowing this systemic imbalance to increase and multiply in all areas of American life.

Let's reassert, we hold these truths to be self-evident, and reconnect to an all-inclusive oasis, where no matter how many, he speaks his mind, excuses, or clueless about Aleppo and foreign leaders or even sincerity regarding democracy -- most still gravitate to the center of reason.

Casting our precious privilege in a way that enables the election of a dangerous thin-skinned angry old snake oil salesman, neither preserves, protects nor defends democracy or the American Democratic Republic. Such a hard right turn, turns us back to a Supreme Court failing to embrace, counting all American votes as the constitutional way forward.

In the wake of Bush v. Gore, America has been Shock and Awed into

Preemptive strikes against a country that had nothing to do with 9/11

Perpetual war creating ISIS (Al Qaeda on steroids)

Global financial instability

Worst national unemployment since The Great Depression

The Great Recession

2016 gives us an opportunity to help America think again by voting to prevent fears, frustration and anger from transferring our belief in each other, to faith in GOP hypocrisy, Gary Johnson ignorance and a Machiavellian Trump.

Only rarely in America has it been acceptable, to give belligerency, misogyny and bigotry a free pass, but now that Trump is no longer a reality sideshow, but mob pleasing improvisation staged as semi-scripted nominee of the ultra-Conservative Right Wing, that rarity has exposed its fangs once again.

As an ardent Sanders supporter, I understand crushed dreamers and frustrated activists, but joining the deserting non-voters or giving into hopelessness that denies America mature, rational pragmatic voting booth judgement gives neo-cons the legitimacy they crave.

As citizens, it is up to us to vote to imprint the U. S. Supreme Court and impact the U. S. Congress. Hold the feet of Democrats to the fire, insisting on, an Attorney General Bernie Sanders, an Elizabeth Warren heading SEC, a Supreme Court Justice Barack Obama, a Treasury Secretary Melinda Gates -- all while keeping James Comey as FBI Director to keep the next President Clinton on the straight and narrow.
