COUNTDOWN: There are still 1,183 days left in this thug’s administration. He MUST go soon!!!!!
“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.”
– Theodore Roosevelt –
Halloween is but 5 days away, and the current political scene in America is definitely scary. President Donald Chump is still supported by a huge majority of the Republican Party, despite having had NO legislative achievements to date. He has dominated headlines with his continual bluster, much of it found in his demented daily Tweets. The rest of the world correctly views him as being a crazy, unstable bully. He is so insecure and thin-skinned that he cannot allow even the slightest bit of criticism to go unchallenged. That is why he has taken it upon himself, using Twitter, to blast any and all who oppose him in the least. In has own party, Senators Bob Corker, John McCain, and Mitch McConnell have experienced his wrath via Twitter. His latest victim appears to be Senator Jeff Flake, whom Chump has been bludgeoning incessantly for a long time.
Within the past 10 days, both Corker and Flake have announced their retirement from the Senate at the end of their term. Both have been justifiably critical of Chump. Both are considered to be pragmatic moderates to conservative. In a trend which has been building for a long time, their Republican Party has moved far to the right of where it had previously been. The once right-of-center party has morphed into a reactionary CON-servative Republican Party heavily supported by deluded far-right billionaires like the Mercer family and the Koch brothers and their corporations. The Mercers, who basically bought Chump the White House, are reveling in their new sense of power and are funding like-minded far-right types like Arizona’s notorious and overly ambitious stooge Kelli Ward. Without a serious primary challenger, this opportunitic and cold-hearted bitch will undoubtedly waltz hetrself in to the senate seat currently held by Flake. She has received a huge level of support from former White House propagandist Steve Bannon, who himself had previously wormed his way into political prominence in the Chump administration courtesy of heavy funding and lobbying from the Mercers. The seemingly unending financial support from these far-right extremist billionaires places all but the very reactionary few in the GOP at a distinct disadvantage. It has nullified any chance moderate Republicans and Democrats may once have had at gaining political office. It is a dangerous and anti-democracy phenomenon which MUST be defeated in the 2018 midterm elections, or democracy as we have known it will vanish completely – and along with it, all vestiges of economic fairness. That is why it is becoming CRUCIAL that Republicans at every level of government be defeated in the next 4 or 5 elections, so the stranglehold they are placing on working and middle class people who make up the overwhekming 99% MAJORITY of the voting public be lifted and completely destroyed. The Democratic Party also needs to end its impotence and renew itself as the true party of the poor, the marginalized, working people, and the middle class.
The time has come for ALL Americans to throw off Trumpism completely, and to end this suicidal ever-rightward spiral of the Republican Party downward!
