What can an old man do?
He has already lived his life.
He cannot take another path.
He cannot make a new plan.
He can only hope,
His children will prevail—
While he watches at the gate,
For the enemy to arrive.
“But, I will not wait
For death to come to me.
I will make it my last campaign.
I will go up to meet it on capitol hill.
I will ring loud—the liberty bell—
Until this body is spent,
And carried down to the valley—
Where my generations remain free!”

Opinion: Why is it, that the mind of a Patriot can’t seem to fathom, that the only reason Biden ran for president was to rescue them from the clutches of a “cult of personality” and his wannabe autocratic party? He didn’t need to come out of retirement, he had already fulfilled his duty to his country. But he looked around and saw that he was the last man standing—who could possibly take out fascism, before it got a foothold on America. Joe isn’t seeking power and glory or narcissistic supply like Trump. He’s just trying to save democracy for his grandchildren.
“Though liberty is established by law, we must be vigilant, for liberty to enslave us is always present under that same liberty. Our Constitution speaks of the ‘general welfare of the people’. Under that phrase all sorts of excesses can be employed by [authoritarian] tyrants—to make us bondsmen.” By: Marcus Tullius Cicero
