For Those Who Imagine It Gets Better Post Election…… November 6, 2016

For those who imagine it gets better post-election;  I believe it is just the start of worse. The GOP obstructionists have now honed their cones on the eight years of Mr. Obama.  They have perfected roadblocks,  diversions, subterfuge, lies and blackmail to an art and if that’s what we get – then we have also done it to ourselves.  Democrats talk the talk but they don’t always walk the walk. Dealing with a con man (more accomplished than Mr. Madoff at that) requires more than we could or should have done. We relied on experience, professionalism, common sense and dignity.  What were we thinking ?

 The GOP are so fucking focussed it scares me.  Tunnel vision unfettered by those tiresome and ridiculous socially important agendas .  And the rank and file buy into the fast talk of a Three Card Monte dealer.He repeats their worst nightmares in every GOP speech.  Ignorant, stubborn, religious, too white?  Bigots. Urban poor.  DJT/the GOP’s finest doesn’t speak with a forked tongue he speaks with a forklift encompassing so many groups of citizens  whom, by the way, all hate each other, it’s damn near simultaneous translation  time at the Tower of Babel.  But they let him loose.

I do think the GOP could have stopped DJT;  but confused, they refused.  They couldn’t dredge up a single appealing candidate to run. A name picked from a hat would have been better.  Are they humiliated?  I doubt it ; because if DJT wins – they win (in their tiny minds) and we reap the fouled fruit of their techniques.   And this is the year, lined up and ready the true believers pay to slide down the razor blade ride of the 2016 Sideshow and Snake Oil Offers. The Year of the Bigot, Bias and Buffoon.

Top kudos, though, should rightly go to social media as the fountain from which this swamp of slime and sleaze oozed. Bi-partisan rock throwing,  braid pulling, pussy grabbing, deniability; because we too – every person, every opinion, every tweet and post have enabled this to happen. BOTH SIDES.  Oh and the entire world.  Surprised – don’t be – turns out we have proven – beyond a doubt that the pen is mightier than the sword.  It simply has been upgraded to a keyboard and send button.

No Matter Who
Here is a screed from the Screeder in Chief – just a heads up for my Blue Buds. Many of you have heroes in the race. Many of you shout the names and wear the shirts and rally at the rallies. There are two choices that I can see. Each one speaks different things to each of us. We hear what we want and we decide based on what we perceive are truths. Remember that politics consists of wish lists and promises by the candidates that cannot always be realized without many others horning in on the deal. “She is stupid. He is stupid. He lies. She lies.” You forget that this is how the game is played. I love your loyalties and arguments but I remind you that we MUST put Democrats back in charge. We MUST vote Blue. No matter who. We cannot abdicate our responsibility to this country by declaring for a candidate who may not wind up in the running. We are running for our lives. We cannot pout.
Support your choice and stay loyal right up until he or she is nominated. Then allow common sense, self-preservation and unity kick in. When the candidate is declared -if you must grit your teeth – grit them. But when you enter that private voting booth – consider all that your vote can do to change the morass the Loyal Opposition has created in the last 16 years. How they wasted the efforts of a good, decent and honest man because he was a good, honest, and decent BLACK man. How the Loyal Opposition released the bigots from the trees and hills and streets and police stations of this country and incited riots and violence and misogyny. How some were chosen – but most were excluded. Because of race, color or creed.
Speak your minds, support your choice, expound, extol and put forth your favorite but allow this fact stay in the mix: This is NOT a personality contest. This is not a nitpicking bee. This is not a horse race  ‘place or ‘show are not options.  This one is for the Rose Garden. So please, when election day arrives, VOTE BLUE. NO MATTER WHO.
