Democracy is like that.
Sometimes you get the Bear other times the Bear eats you. Of course they'll try to undo all of the recent progressive trends. Queer marriage Planetary Climate Change measures stop what little equal pay, and abortion, and medical rights women have...the usual.
Oh yeah the really want to overturn the Civil Right Act of 1964.
That little sweetie ended legal race segregation, and assorted crimes in this country. They say it's not needed anymore since there's no more separation of races...right.
Ya know I'm not really that upset about all this. Sure these folks will try to do as much damage, and mischief as possible, but time history, and most of all demographics are solidly against them. In their internal agenda memos they even admit their only chance at power is voter suppression.
They're out numbered know it, and hope the traditional apathy, and profound stupidity of the American people will work in their favor...as it always has, and did again last night.
Mind you these folks are just folks like you'n me, ...Americans as I go on about below. They just have a slightly different view as to what this country is, and should be...fine. Others have another view.
We'll work it out.
Btw in 2012 more non-white babies were born in our Blessed Republic that white ones. Our brethren know this, and it freaks them the hell out. Hence the Tea Party, and the years of obstruction.
They know their time is running out.
(I wish the Angry White Guys could finally understand that we'll be far kinder to them than they 'ever' were to us,...and we will. Hey we're just folks ya know.)
It's likely the Republican/Tea Party never without serious change ever get the White House again so they figure they'll rule from the back seat. Heck Democrats did this for years during the Republican hegemony. So turn-about is fair play.
All I'm saying is that this country has moved on. It's including more, and more folks into the mainstream. Folks that were ignored or outright persecuted once...and still to a degree. So last light was just another confused angry passionate step on our National Journey towards what we Dream this Country to Be.
A House of brawling pissed off deranged Big Hearted Generous Brave United confused people. Yep that's America...I'd know her anywhere.
