So we’ve survived the November 3, 2020 election. Pat yourself on the back! While challenges and lingering declarations will no doubt rest, rather than all the poo-hoo and complaining and apoplectic commentary that will be common, we should take note at the vibrancy of American democracy. Voter turnout increased in 2020 compared to 2016 and 2012 and 2008! In fact, estimates show that this was the highest voter turnout percentage-wise since 1900 at over 67%! For all the talk of a decaying democracy, 2020 proved America’s democracy is still vibrant, growing, and will grow in the future. That should be something all Americans, and even the world, should be proud of and breathe happily about.
