Have you ever tasted the sweet essence of air? 

Have you ever felt a refreshing lightness on your tongue that was so delightful, but seemingly without mass or structure?

When writing this piece several months prior to the November 2020 elections, a Republican U.S. Senator was interviewed by CNN as to why he is not only against Trump, but also openingly stating that he will vote for Biden. When questioned further, he stated that the outrageous acts of Trump and his administration were actually working against the conservative principles of the GOP.
