Well thank you Gandolf for that reasoned response.
At this point, what with the absolutely stunning corruption from the GOP, I’d like to see some good old Kennedy-style nepotism again. Hell, I’d like to see some good old style Tammany Hall Democratic machine corruption. Since the Trump fascists are pushing us to a civil war, we might as well resign ourselves to fighting fire with fire. They will never stop, even as thousands die on the streets; their greed is bottomless. They will never stop, not until they have taken everything of value, including our lives. They will never stop.
I am a single issue voter: whoever raises taxes on billionaires gets my vote. For whatever his faults, real and perceived, Bill Clinton did that very thing and since 1994 has suffered the consequences of deliberate, orchestrated corporate media character assassination, which Al Franken well articulated in his great book “Lies, and the Lying Liars Who Tell them.” When Clinton left office he was wildly popular with the young. My son’s generation hate the Clintons despite the fact they were barely teenagers when he left office. The difference is, my son’s generation has grown up with 25 years of that genuine “vast right wing conspiracy” of Clinton media character assassination/hagiography of Reagan Bush. They have no direct knowledge of what 12 years of life was like under Reagan Bush. Decades long generational deceit on the part of the One Percent and their media control.
Anyway, thanks for listening.
