Nineteen days since less than half the American voters imposed their will upon the rest – revealing some pretty ugly shit about the land of the free. The two major parties remain comically fragmented – which make the republicans more dangerous and the democrats less effective. A majority left of center country, the USA, prepares for domination by the extreme right. Still, the republic stands.
Much to the chagrin of the Donald, the Green Party, bless their hopeful hearts, just forced a recount in my native Wisconsin. The Clinton campaign, ever ready to lead from behind, got on board with the recount right after the Greens won the issue. Sure would be nice if the Democratic Party grew a backbone, but I don’t think they remember how.
The Donald, of course, it livid. He’s tweeting like a three-hundred-pound canary. It’s reported that frequency counts on the Trump tweet keywords sad, Trump and scam are shooting up. (Ever notice how often he refers to himself in third person? Must think he’s a rapper.)
Let’s extend thanks to Dr. Jill Stein for taking the politically aggressive road. We need more of this. The Dems don’t appear capable of fighting for themselves no less for us. Perhaps another look at the Green Party in order.
While I don’t expect a recount to change the election results, I do recognize the value of resisting in every possible way. If the recount diminishes the Trump win at all, it’s worth it. And you never know what might be revealed once we start turning over rocks. Perhaps they’ll find that the Waukesha County elections have been fixed for years – we just don’t know. (Yes, we do.)
That’s all I got today. Take care of yourselves and each other,
