The fascists among us hate us
because we are not fascists.

The fascists feel safe 
only among other fascists.
Everybody else exists to serve them.
If they can be of no service,
they are fit for nothing other than death.
That is how fascists think.

The fascists are arranging things politically
so that they win every election.
Gerrymandering works that way.
It is a slick trick
for defeating democracy using the tools of democracy.

When the fascists own the polling places
and own the courts
they will own the country.

Our only hope is to vote in large numbers
in every election,
and to not vote for the fascists
in any of them.

Fascists call themselves "Republicans,"
thinking the rest of us
are too stupid to know the difference.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.

  1. Thank you for addressing this topic, which has been on my mind all week. Voting is about all I can do these days, and I do that faithfully. You speak Truth—my opinion, of course.
