Tuesday was a sad day for our nation. President Obama’s voters deserted him. This feels like a repeat of 1998. Democrats need to learn to show up at all elections.
I am getting too old to continue to fight to save our nation. This election was about the future for the Gen X’s, Gen Y’s, and Millennials. There will probably still be enough food and clean water to drink until I get planted in the ground. I’m not sure that I can say the same for my children and grandchildren.
So, will the rich keep getting richer? Will we be returning to the feudal system? Is this the end of democracy? Sadly, America now has the worst government that money can buy. The “kooks” will be running the nation financed by the greedy likes of the Koch brothers.
Just a word to the younger generation, if Social Security is dismantled, your parents and/or grandparents will be moving in with you. You will be straddled with student loan debt because the Republicans use your money to finance their wars and war machinery. You will have the country that your apathy and lack of voting will provide. I wish you luck with that. As I said, I am old and for me, “everyday above ground is a good day”.
This is our Open Thread. I’m sure there will be plenty to Speak Up about.
NB: I cried when Reagan got elected and I came close to crying on Tuesday night.
