Election Day 2022

David Cowles

“Whatever we do, each of us is commenting on the current state-of-affairs, advocating for some future state-of-affairs, or rejecting the political process altogether.”

Today is the day when every citizen of the United States (age 18+) makes a declaration.


Today, you and I will go to the polls and vote, one way or another, or we have already voted so that our votes can be counted tonight; or we will not vote at all. Whatever we do, each of us is commenting on the current state-of-affairs, advocating for some future state-of-affairs, or rejecting the political process altogether.


In preparation for today’s vote, Aletheia Today (AT) published two Thoughts While Shaving (TWS) last week, both reflecting on Lincoln’s Gettysburg address, and focusing on Lincoln’s call for government ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people’:


The Gettysburg Address

Gettysburg Too


Today, in consideration of the hurt and anger that today’s results will inevitably generate, it might make sense to return to Mr. Lincoln one more time: “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”
