Trump Is Our National Mistake So Democrats Unite Or Cede America To Republicans

by David P. Greenberg

I don’t care that Trump bombed Syria. Some would argue that it was the right and necessary thing to do. Many would say, “I despise Trump, but he did the right thing this time.” Others would be quick to point out that Obama also bombed Syria, and that Hillary planned to continue in what was not only Obama’s policy but “W’s” before that.

But, I don’t care.

I don’t care that Trump paid off Stormy Daniels. Or that he has “Fixers” on his payroll, who work out of hotel rooms.

I don’t care that Melania was pregnant while Trump was shtupping a Playboy bunny.

I don’t care that he warned Putin and Assad before the bombing. I don’t care that the best way to help Syria – if we even give a shit – is to provide a safe harbor for the refugees. Something Obama and Hillary DID want to do, and the Republicans obstructed.

What I’m saying is we need to stop dissecting each move Trump makes – each non-sentence that spews out of his face-hole.

Trump is wrong.

I don’t mean he’s wrong in a given policy. I don’t even mean he’s wrong in his belief system or personal philosophy. I mean he’s just fuckin’ wrong.

An anachronism. A national mistake. A bad dream you can’t wake up from.

Trump wasn’t “elected.” Trump “happened.” America was proceeding through the intersection when Trump ran the red light.

So, what to do now?

Well, we can just keep on living in this “Evil-Biff” universe we’ve created, and wait for Armageddon – which is why the Evangelicals support Trump, thinking they’re going to heaven and you’re going to hell. Or we can work to restore our country to normalcy – to take the asylum back from the inmates. But if we choose the latter, we’re going to have to make some hard choices and face some difficult facts.

Like it or not, America is basically a two-party political system. Now, that was never the intent of the Founders. And yes, speaking in strictly legal terms, there are more than 2 parties. But the Legislature is divided along Republican/Democratic lines. Independents must caucus with one or the other. When Bernie votes, he either votes with the Democrats or he votes against them, but he’s still playing on their board.

The only way we’re gonna take this country away from the Republican nutters is to vote Democratic. And it has to be done because the Republicans have spent decades rigging the game.

Take a close look at the recent Special Election in PA. The map was so badly Gerrymandered, that even the Gorsuck Supreme Court had to force them to redistrict. The thing looked like a Pothead’s eyeball. Tiny little blue pupil, surrounded by a sea of red. But what happened? We took that seat. Why? Because a literal horde of Democrats turned out and voted. And because a much smaller group of Independents voted Democrat.

Now, the guy we got probably isn’t Gandhi. He isn’t another Mandela. Another Tutu. But he also isn’t a Kool-aid drinking gun fetishist who believes that abortion will ruin God’s plan of birthing the Antichrist. The “Obama’s just as bad as Trump” argument is what got us here.

We’ll never be able to convince the Paul Ryans, the Mitch McConnells, the Roy Blunts, or the John Cornyns of anything. Much less their supporters. Those people are gone. They’re zombies. Pod-people. “She’s not the girl you knew. Now she just wants to eat your brain.”

But, the simple fact is, you either side with Democrats, and have infinitesimal power, or you side with somebody else and cede everything to the Republicans.

There is no third choice.

    I don’t think dems can unite David. Too many wings and factions. There’s the Bernie Wing, and the Hillary Wing, and the Jill Stein (of all people) wing. There are more I just can’t recall them right now because I’m old and tired and cranky because the external HD I bought just wants to work as a backup and I can’t figure out how NOT to have it do that. What? Did I wander off topic? Oh. How Democrat of me.

      I agree, but we have to figure that shit out before the skies start raining fireballs.

      You should be able to use “Disk Utility” to format the drive in HFS+. Then the Apple will see it as a normal drive. You might need to partition it too. Apples are happiest with 250G partitions.

      Jill Stein was just another Russian shill.

    It will take more than just dems uniting. It will take independents and moderates, and maybe even liberal republicans.

    It is possible democrats have forgotten how to win.

      I think you’re right Les, although they remembered in 2008, but forgot again in 2010, with a brief recovery of memory in 2012 and losing ever since. They are just too fond of eating their young.
