Election’s Over, Primaries Rage (Part 3)

Part 1: Hillary Sucks & Bernie’s Not a Democrat
Part 2: Hillbots & Bernie Bros

TRUMP FUCKING WON. Everyone was blown away. It was a living hell, watching 538 update it’s projections, not comprehending what was happening. It didn’t seem possible, I don’t care who you supported in the primaries.

There was a dangerous lunatic in the White House with a GOP Congress in charge of checks and balances.

It was a tragedy of epic proportions – the Hurricane Katrina of elections. You’d think we’d all come together to save our country from disaster. But no, not us.

We’re still whining and bitching and screaming and blaming and belittling and demeaning and disrespecting each other. Like a bunch of middle school kids.

Could it be anymore embarrassing? Could we do anything more to help Donald Trump and the power-mad Republicans?

A Dr. Phil Moment

Time to grow up and accept reality.

  1. Hillary Clinton has her pro’s and con’s.
  2. Bernie Sanders has his pro’s and con’s.
  3. Both of them were allowed to run for the nomination. (This is still a democracy…for the moment)
  4. Both said and did things during their campaigns that were not helpful.
  5. The primaries have been over since July 2016.

If you believe Hillary Clinton and any number of credible sources, there was Russian interference that impacted the election results. 

So stop blaming Sanders for running, for being an alternative to Clinton. Stop pummeling Sanders supporters for her loss.

If you believe in Bernie Sanders, start following his example.

So stop bitching about rigged elections and whether or not he would have won. Stop attacking Clinton supporters and pushing RW talking points.

NONE OF US CAN CHANGE WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST.  BUT WE MIGHT LEARN FROM IT IF WE STOP ACTING LIKE SPOILED BRATS.  

BOTH SIDES HAVE VALID POINTS. MAYBE WE SHOULD BE LISTENING TO EACH OTHER, INSTEAD OF TEARING EACH OTHER DOWN.

So Cut the Crap

Grow up. Move on. Get counseling. Whatever you need to do to get past all the bitterness and resentment you’re carrying around.  It’s baggage you don’t need and the democrat/liberal/progressive agenda doesn’t need it either.

News flash to Sanders & Clinton folks:  This is not about you.

This is about our country.  Our values.  The civil rights of millions of Americans.  Food for poor kids and homebound seniors.  Women’s reproductive rights. A living wage.  A good education.  The right to vote.

Freedom of  (and from) religion.  Health care for all people, but especially for those who will die without it.  Protection for our planet. A warm welcome to people fleeing violence and terror.  Rejection of systemic racism and bigotry.  Recourse from profiteering.

So stop fighting each other.  You don’t have to agree, but you don’t have to provoke either. Stop attacking people. It’s childish, shortsighted and divisive at a time when unity is essential.

This war wins us nothing but a MAGA hat. Our country expects more from us than that.
