Today, we had yet another opportunity to exercise our first amendment rights. We took to the streets, once again, with thousands of our fellow New Yorkers, to demand transparency and accountability from the current administration.
Why are the tax returns of the current occupant of the Oval Office important? Because the individual holding that office, and responsibility, is bound by honor and law to serve the citizens of the United States FIRST. The operative word here is “serve.” The Office is not a pass to unbridled individual enrichment. At its best, it is about the enrichment and prospering of its constituents. His tax returns are the only evidence We The People have that we are not being defrauded.
Full disclosure: I do not trust the current occupant of the Oval Office as far as I can throw him. While I’m a strong woman, I admit I can’t throw him at all.
The streets were filled with concerned citizens, standing in their own power, holding one of their employees accountable. There was a feeling of camaraderie and fellowship in the crowd. I didn’t meet a single cranky person.
…the Truth Fairy looked a little worried. But definitely not cranky!
