Nobody Is Above the Law—Mueller Firing Rapid Response | MoveOn.org

I just signed up to go to an event tomorrow night. I strongly encourage you to keep up the momentum that we generated going into these midterm elections and show this corrupt administration that this battle has only just begun and no one is backing down.

The Democrats’ Undeserved Gift

I was reading an article just now about a potential “Democratic reckoning” for Donald Trump after the election results are tallied today.

Let’s be clear, people: if the Democrats were to win back control of Congress it would be an undeserved gift, bestowed upon them by those who are rightly fed up and outraged over the mismanagement of this civilization in the hands of elites of both stripes who live in far away, detached, lost islands of indoctrination while the citizens of this country must toil every step of the way every day of the week. It would be the Democrats’ responsibility to rise to the occasion and show that they actually deserve to have the confidence and faith of the citizenry of the United States of America. And with that must come an avalanche of Democratic humility, erasing any inkling of hubris and superiority on the part of Democrats and every indication that they are done with doing things the old, wrong way, stifling meaningful progress with every cynical, overeducated, milquetoast policy non-proposal.

The right kind of change is going to happen eventually; one way or the other; either the easy way or the hard way; mercifully sooner or painfully later. The Democrats can either help usher in that change or they can continue to protest defiantly while they fade disgracefully into historical oblivion, replaced by a new, socially just movement that we may already be seeing take form.

To All The Christians Who Do Not Observe Christmas In The USA…

Check out @BernieSanders’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1059915604767977475?s=09

If a country were truly a democracy then voting day would be a national holiday. It would be a sanctified occasion for sure. To do otherwise would be like being a Christian and not observing Christmas or Easter. 🙂

So let’s just make up our minds and decide if we want to be a democracy or if we do not want to be a democracy. If we’re going to do it let’s do it well, go all in for God’s sake! Otherwise just stop pretending and do something else.

Opinion | The News Is Bad in Hungary – The New York Times

It’s important that we understand what actually goes into making a free, vibrant democracy or else we won’t know how to preserve it and help it flourish. Simply accepting that things are the way they are and they will continue to be that way forever is foolish and childish. It’s important to see that things are always at risk of destruction. Nothing is predetermined. Nothing is permanent. We must strive to preserve what is best about ourselves and to nurture and create more goodness or else other things will spring up as weeds in the garden. Another way of putting it is if you are not part of the solution you’re part of the problem. If you can’t look at your life and see ways that you are actively promoting goodness in the world then you are actually promoting and facilitating negativity.
