(The Pearcey Report) -- We stand on the eve of one of the most profound moments in our nation's history. I mean this, and I affirm this, with all of my heart, soul, strength, and mind.
That is what Election Day 2016 is. For good or for ill, E-Day Nov. 8, 2016, presents us with a choice that will decisively impact every single one of us on the very deepest of levels of who we are.
The results of this day will affect us immediately in the concrete realities of our daily lives -- reaching even into matters of life and death. Even more, the results of E-Day will immediately and decisively affect the very structure and direction of who we are as a people and as a national community, whether we shall stand for great good and beauty or for great ill and ugliness.
