Apparently this country thinks that going backwards is the way to move forward. Thankfully, California was smart enough to recognize the two charlatans. Naturally I received Jerry’s “victory” letter. It contained the following quote:
“What we need is a larger sense of agreement and the only way we can get beyond where we are — which is polarization, division and hostility — is to get past these partisan divisions.”
The word that jumped out at me is hostility. I’m sick and tired of the outright bullying from the Right. It’s ok to disagree. As a matter of fact, some of my best conversations are with Conservatives. Intellegent Conservatives. Conservatives that want to discuss ideas not shout me down with bullshit numbers. Not these brown shirted puppets of the current Right, who are more incapable of independent thought than the liberals they vilify. I blame Reagan for gutting our public schools and making the population as a whole stupider. We’re all up in arms right now about cyberbullying and bullying in the schools. What’s the difference? Seriously. What’s the freaking difference?
Getting people to go vote is not voter fraud. It’s what we do in a democracy. Just because the people don’t embrace your ideas doesn’t mean asking them to vote is fraudulent. It really just means you have crappy ideas and are full of shit.
Speaking of full of shit…
Just for shits and giggles, the text of the First Amendment
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Right there. And look at that! Coons could quote the Constitution. I’m just glad that Delaware figured that one out. All we need is another Michele Bachman.
I remember. And I’ll be watching.
