I think it’s awesome. In fact, I bet they can “change the dialogue.” Like. Wow.
Seriously, I really do think it’s cool, and commendable, and I sincerely wish I could be a part of this, and many other marches. What bugs me this morning is that I keep hearing all these people in the MSM trying to send Bernie’s supporters off to bed while the sun is still shining. "Tomorrow is another day, Sweetie, and you’ve changed the dialogue for years to come… " BULLLLLLSHIT! Your lip service to my agenda may be delivered directly to my buttocks, thank you very little…
It’s all an enormous crock. Campaign finance reform could happen in less than a week. There’s no mystery about how to write the legislation. Don’t hold your breath-- It’s not ever gonna happen. Maybe if the people spending all this dough decide that they don’t want to be in the business of paying for elections if they can’t engineer the outcomes… Maybe then? I doubt it. They seem to be doing pretty well thus far-- there’s room for growth in the political sector! Still, I suppose anything is possible in the twisted minds of the oligarchs… Unfortunately for us, they’ve used their fortunes to buy power, and I don’t foresee them giving away an ounce of it-- Not without a big bloody fight (among ourselves, of course.) Folks… The system has been bought and sold, and We the People have never held the keys. The Constitution wasn’t written for the little man. It was written to protect the business interests of the wealthy.
So, let’s change the dialogue… Yeah, like MLK, and JFK, and RFK… In all honesty, if Bernie loses, I’ll be somewhat relieved-- I genuinely like the guy. I’m deeply inspired by him… And, revolutionary thinkers don’t fare very well once they start threatening to alter the system. So? We can organize, we can educate, we can agitate, we can march. It’s all part of the sanctioned game-- A rite of passage for people (of all ages) who sincerely care about their country and their fellow man. It’s all well and good as long as we play by the rules and understand that the system isn’t broken. It doesn’t need reform. It’s working more or less as intended.
Now stop all that reading and thinking and marching and speaking, and go get a job you worthless, rudderless, unrealistic, ungrateful little shits!
