(or how the republican leadership is fucking it all up.)
Republican politicians in Washington are wrong on just about every issue I, or anyone can imagine.
How can that be?
How can any sensible thinking person not want to talk about the violence in this country?
Not talk about healthcare? Or the mentally ill? Or have a real conversation about immigration? Our failing education system? Even the political process itself which is being removed from the people’s hands?
I don’t get it!
Yes, I’m concerned with what is happening in the Middle East, with ISIS, with terrorism in general, but the thing is, none of this shit is anything new. Terrorism was a global mainstay back in the day. ‘Red Army’ anyone? As in Red Army Faction, Japanese Red Army, Red Brigade, Baader & Meinhof, Black Panthers, KKK, SLA, Munich, PLO, and Hijackings galore.
Yep, the 60s, 70s and 80s were a lot different.
Not so much so.
For Republican Politicians who want to radicalize their own party against Muslims, against Islam, and make no mistake, that is what they are trying to do, you’re not getting the message, your fear mongering is helping those who seek to destroy our way of life. In fact, Republicans are doing more to destroy our valued freedoms than any Terrorist ever could.
Really, don’t you want to snuggle and cozy up to the Donald with all the love and freedom he exudes?
The truth is, Terrorism has been around a long time, in a lot of different forms, and it’s not going anywhere soon. We cannot live in fear, we cannot distance ourselves from the other troublesome little details in our lives like income inequality, gun violence, poverty, healthcare and education.
Republicans are doing just that, distancing their party from the problems we face, and in their place, creating a brand of citizens who are scared shitless, and they are wrong in doing so!
