When the Occupy Wall Street came about, I had some concerns. Sure, they caught the attention of the media, but where was the tangible option? I remember hoping that the movement evolved into something I could vote for... a person to run for office. The movement lasted awhile, but in the end, and as I predicted, it petered out.
Enter the Tea Party...
You gotta give it to the Right-wing... those bigots sure can get motivated. Tea Party candidates were elected into office and caused real damage.
The Right has gerrymandered districts, has caused voter suppression and has struck down of the Voting Rights Act. Hate sure is a great motivator.
Now that the Alt-right has managed to elect an orange-haired, daddy's boy billionaire, the future doesn't look so bright. Once again has the Right organized itself and voted into office a tangible candidate to enact change.
Say what you will, the Right has once again enacted real change, yet they can only win if they lie and cheat.
The problem with the left is that we're so concerned with making sure everybody has a hug, a lollipop and a rainbow. Here we are arguing about preferred pronouns and bathrooms, while the likes of Steve Bannon has successfully implemented his devious plan. We seem to forget about electing a person into the system.
I fear we're going to once again send out "good vibes" while letting the Right take over our country.
WILL ONE OF YOU FUCKERS PLEASE RUN FOR OFFICE?
AND VOTE IN THE MIDTERMS!
