Rick Steves: For the Love of America, Vote

A timely message from travel writer and enthusiast Rick Steves:
 Excerpt from the video summary: 
As a traveler and a student of history, I've seen how strong societies can fray. And I fear for our democracy. It’s more fragile than we realize. And it is at risk.

That's why, this year, I believe our choice is more fundamental than partisanship. Four years ago, Donald Trump pledged to "Make America Great Again." When I survey our national life today, it's clear to me that we've lost so much more than we've gained in that time.

If we truly want to make America great again, we need to elect Joe Biden to the White House on November 3. Please join me.

Did you see the comments on the YouTube site under this video? Rick was very courageous to take a public stand on a divisive political issue. I'm sure it will hurt his program and career to some extent.

I hadn't looked at the comments until you mentioned them. Yes, Steve was brave to speak out - but I am glad he did "come out" so to speak. (I had supposed a world traveler would likely be on the liberal side of the fence, but wasn't sure.) Just looking at the comments this morning, though, it seems many more were approving of his remarks than disapproving.

Like Steve, Michelle O., Cindy McCain, and others, I suppose all decent people feel the need to speak out now, doing what they can to help the cause. We might not all agree on every little point of what needs to change, but we don't have to. Just getting a sane, intelligent President in the White House again is the only thing that counts right now.
