Electorate witnesses wounded beast

Electorate witnesses wounded beast... flailing, lurching, and writhing in throes of agony Trumpets blare acknowledging crack hunters lucky strike, i.e. bullseye salvo shot at innocuous yet brutish and nasty looking *****sapien courtesy elite militia incapacitates, (yet doth not kill) mortal enemy. Tis a moost dangerous threatening president (assailed all points of the compass) able, eager, ready and willing to loose anarchy, chaos, entropy... sabotaging, sacrificing, saddling every precious life (yet those unborn) within ethos, diktat, and credo of brinkmanship. His indefatigable stonewalling campaigning stage lumbers with increased rage taking out apprentice playbook, a page titled how to win at all costs - even Pyrrhic victory (bang... bang... bang near fatal reportage). Part and parcel of Democratic brigade I aspire lobbing metaphorical brickbat enfilade to stoke public disgust at United States incumbent president more incompetent than student in fifth grade (apology extended for any unintended insult exhibited by whip smart kids genetically custom tailor made). Though madly thrashing across his barren domain all manner of expedient strategy to defeat him, I will try to explain for no citizen of voting age ought not remain complacent one humble human (me) smugness doth not feign cuz, day of reckoning spelling boom or bust, Joe Biden moost gain as commander in chief lest... the following blather I readily admit might seem pointless, futile and inane yet fools rush in, where angels fear to tread, while America crumbles to ruins, a fate moost loath to witness if apathy prevails nary any trace left, where glory throve and inevitably strews once fruitful plain inviting twenty first century Vandals to usurp millennial reign thus on two hundred and forty fourth anniversary when original thirteen colonies set figurative sights to track and train democratic experiment, within which history (yours truly, a generic hypocrite) admits instances where tentative existence graphs sinusoidal curve, which plotted path waxed with promise, boot now prospect for continuity doth wane. Shameless to allow lofty ideal regarding hard won enfranchisement amendment gifted upon all citizens, yet inalienable right still far reality exercised (née thwarted every step of the way towards those whose very flesh bled) with justice once and for all for many across land from sea to shining sea (line excerpted from America the Beautiful accredited to Katharine Lee Bates) penned during 1893 trip to Colorado Springs, Colorado.
