It is time Democrats quit pussy-footing around and call out the snow flakes that tend to throw elections to the Republicans. 

Donald Trump just nominated his second Supreme Court Judge that will skew the High Court far right for decades to come.   I am not shocked by this.  Republicans have never keep a secret of their goals: to do away with Social Security and Medicare, overturn Roe vs Wade, oppose gay marriage and gay rights, enact biblical law and give massive tax breaks to the mega-wealthy and mega-corporations.  This is who the Republicans proudly are

Republicans play hardball – Democrats play Scrabble
Republicans fall in line – Democrats meander
Republicans demonize Democrats – Democrats talk about their friends across the aisle.

There is only one way to stop this bullshit.

If we believe in democratic socialist principles – that the government has a responsibility to improve the lives of its citizens – then we must give up our milk toast, politically correct demeanor and our fear of offending people.   We need to call it as it is.

If you could not bring yourself to vote for Hillary Clinton because of her e-mails, or you could not vote for Republicans or Democrats because both parties are imperfect, or because of your desired to appear pure and independent to your friends and neighbors you voted Libertarian or Green Party - then I don’t want to hear your lamentations when Roe vs Wade is overruled, when the Affordable Health Care is rolled back, Gay rights are no longer constitutionally protected or children are being taken away from their mothers …

There are only two viable parties in this country and in a Presidential election - either a Democrat or a Republican will be elected.  If purity required you opt out of supporting the Democratic candidate in the past election, then by default you enabled the Republicans.

So, if you did not vote for the Democrat in the past presidential election, then shut the fuck up.  You own this.

  1. You're right, OB -- splitting the vote only helps Trump.

  2. I'm wondering how the country will survive the rest of his time left in office. I don't think for one second he will be impeached. As I see it, it will take decades to undo what he has done to all of us, if we are still here in the future.

  3. I am convinced the POS is shooting for being the first U.S. Life Time President. Everything he has done has been testing the waters to see just how much he can get away with. Being the cynic that I am...I have a sinking feeling that he will get away with it...IF, as you say, we don't toughen up and get over looking for perfection within the Democratic Party.

  4. In my fantasy we make the GOP the Whigs of the 21st century and then fix the Democratic party, get rid of the old dead wood.
