Appreciation Thread: The Rule of Law

We are the original inventors of the modern democratic republic and I'm convince that we are going to prove to the world that when challenged, our 240-plus year old institutions can survive such an undemocratic attack and crisis.

We've done it before and we're doing it now and I remain hopeful that we will emerge from this current crisis stronger than ever before.

That is all. Please k/r to voice optimism that our institutions are strong enough to survive this serious crisis. For me, the alternative is untenable.

5. I get it, but I have to remain optimistic.

After all, we have weathered some serious storms before.
