The tumultuous year of 2020 is upon us, and trying to figure out what will happen in the next year is a major challenge!
In many ways, this could be the most difficult year in American politics since 1968, when the nation suffered through bloodshed, violence, and assassination.
There is great fear that if Donald Trump loses reelection, we might see similar bloodshed, violence, and even assassination, with the latter being even before the election.
We have not had a serious threat to a sitting President, eye to eye, since 1981 and Ronald Reagan, and reminding ourselves of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, makes one fearful that some Democratic contender could face such a dire threat, as well, in the new year.
Constitutional government and democracy are at stake in a way not seen since the era of Fascism and Nazism, leading up to World War II.
Let us hope we make it as a nation through the year 2020 with our government stable and in safe hands after the election!
Hope everyone has a Happy New Year!
