For all those who did not vote for Hillary —
— who couldn’t stand her because she thought she was anointed
— because she was a tool of Wall Street
— because Bernie or Stein or some other fool was the REAL progressive
— because I really don’t have a choice so I’ll sit it out
Whatever your excuse, goddam it I hope you are happy now. I also hope you are under 55 so you will spend the rest of your life knowing that YOU are the reason this nation is fucked. I’m 73 so I’m fairly safe. If you’re under 55 you are screwed and your children and grandchildren are screwed royally.
And please don’t insult me with some bullshit about how Senate Democrats will force a “moderate” onto SCOTUS.
Not gonna happen. Trump will nominate a Neanderthal Nazi and he’ll breeze through confirmation.
In the next five years, all the following will disappear — and this is only a partial list.
— abortion will become illegal.
— birth control pills, IUDs, and every other birth control device except condoms will be illegal — because life will be determined to start at fertilization.
— unions, 40-hour work week, overtime pay, minimum wage, workplace safety regulations: GONE.
— clean water, clean air: GONE.
— one man, one vote: GONE. Only Republicans will be able to vote.
— gay rights, same gender marriage: GONE.
— public schools: GONE. Tax money will pour into church schools.
— taxes on corporations and the uber-wealthy: GONE.
— social security, Medicare, Medicaid: Are you kidding?
— affirmative action: GONE.
— don’t stand for the national anthem, go to jail.
— immigrants? No more immigration and deport those who are here.
So — if any of these every came out of your mouth: “Hillary stole the nomination.” “She’s too much of a hawk.” “She’s tied to Wall Street.” “I love Bernie.” “Jill Stein is the real progressive.” “Trump can’t win so I’ll just sit it out.” — if any of that bullshit ever came out of your mouth, you are responsible for the death of this republic. I hope you are proud of yourselves.
Alright, alright . . . I have removed the offending last line. Won’t change anything. If you didn’t vote for Hillary in 2016, you are responsible for this. Stop trying to deny it, stop trying to justify it. Of course, if you didn’t vote for Hillary in 2016, you likely won’t vote for whomever we Democrats nominate in 2020 —
