American Democracy — Signs of Life

Some high-ranking present and former military officials have very recently made clear that their loyalty is to the Constitution of the United States and the values it represents rather than to a man who is the commander and chief of the armed forces but flagrantly violates his oath to uphold the law under which he holds his office. That Trump’s behavior has become unacceptably revolting for many who are traditionally inclined to be unquestioning of authority indicates that American democracy is showing signs of life.
