A relief from insanity

Thank you, Preet! Listening to your thoughts and insights into what a properly run justice system ought to look like is like therapy that helps me cope with the brazen madness that’s become the norm. Knowing that people like you are still able to speak out and maintain a large audience is a sign that America, as the founding fathers had conceived it, still exists and there is hope yet. But if things don’t work out in the almighty USA, please know that Canada is a great place to live and I would personally sponsor you if you ever needed asylum, and I’m not even rich. I just think that people like you are essential to have a civilized and functioning country and with the US in decline Canada and the rest of the free and open societies will need the best people to help protect ourselves from the same fate. I hope it’ll never come to that though.
