The extreme arrogance and hubris that is continuously radiated by characters such as these is due to this: they now realize that they allowed throughout their lifetime the circumstances to exist that brought us to this moment; that they failed in their own eyes to prevent the problems that are before us now; but instead of simply stepping aside, acknowledging the truth, and getting out of the way, leaving it clear for others to do the necessary work, they entrench themselves, embittered, and seek to pretend that the problems couldn’t have been prevented, or that they are not as bad as they seem, or that they are beyond the ability of others to solve, or that they are unsolvable by anyone, or, lastly, that they don’t even exist.
Yes, it might seem obvious that Uncle Joe Biden is already our next anointed one and you can check out of this mess and go to bed already.
But by delegating actual, deliberate thought and action to these stunningly moronic poll-jockeys you are abdicating your right and abandoning your responsibility as a being who is consuming air and other shared resources that could possibly be better utilized elsewhere…. 🙂 But maybe you could decide to do it differently this time (yeah!) and research what is important to you (heck yeah!), figure out which candidate best fits that profile (holy guacamole, yeah!), and then cast your one, single, solitary vote (BOOM).
That would feel very rewarding, wouldn’t it??? 🙂💜
The fact that Tulsi Gabbard is not mentioned at all in this article says much about how wrong the mainstream media are, how wrong the punditry/fuck-sticks are, how wrong the “educated” class are about what democratic elections are supposed to be about, what’s wrong with our country’s hamfisted approach to them, and what needs to change in order to save our species. These people who supposedly know something are masturbating with spreadsheets and graphs and poll numbers while truth is staring at them in the fucking face.
You’re not so smart. None of you are. The vast complexity of politics (oooo, scary!!) is a shared delusion that you must perpetuate in order to sustain your fraudulent reality.
In the end, the emperor is naked and stands before you while you don’t even notice him anymore because you are too busy noticing how knowledgeable you are.
Courts likely to strike down Republican lame-duck power grabs, experts say
Republicans aren’t only anti-Democrat. They are also anti-democracy. As Paul Krugman wrote the GOP is authoritarianism in waiting.
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.

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.
