Awaiting a new era

By JOHN KANELIS / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

Critics of this blog will have to bear with me for just a few more days.

I truly am looking forward to the day when I won’t have to devote so much of my emotional capital criticizing the actions, the rhetoric and the record of the current president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Moreover, my fondest hope is that the day will arrive sometime on Election Night early next week, or maybe in the next day or two afterward. That would be when we can declare Joe Biden to be the next president and the current one can start his transition back to private life.

Until then I will keep up a steady stream of rhetorical fire aimed at Trump.

He is unfit for for the office he occupies. Trump won the 2016 election by portraying himself as a “populist” who allegedly cares about the little guy. We have learned from the get-go that he is nothing of the sort.

The litany of strikes against Trump are virtually endless, so it is daunting in the extreme to list them here. I trust those of you who have read this blog over the years understand where I come from.

I do hope the day of calling Trump to task for all that he has done to this country is coming to an end. He will be rendered irrelevant eventually. I hope that moment arrives next week and not four years from now.

My final concern about a potential Trump defeat at the polls will be that he won’t go quietly. That he won’t accept the results as legit. That he’ll mount that challenge that could end up in front of the Supreme Court’s justices. Then, of course, he remains a target of this blog. If he decides against all of that and surrenders to reality, well, then we can move on to the next era.

I hope the day after the election dawns brightly.
