Yes Tink, and the difference I would have with your comment is that I don't think the Republicans offer a way out, they do not offer a way forward, they take us deeper toward the left-wing drama you describe. I remember one of our conversations, your observation I believe to be correct, something about the extreme left wing and the right wing meeting around behind at the back door.
All those problems you (accurately) pointed out with the Dem? What if the only difference is that the Republicans have not yet been caught out? I think so, don't have any real doubt.
So, I see the way forward as coming from below...adversarial political partisanship a dead end...instead, something basic and essential happening through you and me and my cousin us the Great Unwashed, with all our diverging views it happens through the foundation of our good hearts. Not sure what that will look like, but it's not the Republican Party that will bring it off, I feel quite sure.
Here is one point I hope we can start: Apparently, what I read, there are already attempts to get rid of cash -- digital currency only, with its immense potential for completing control of the populace. Maybe we can take a stand there, as a place to start.
The First Amendment also hugely watershed, but the Nomenklatura has been able to polarize us against Assange, creating hatred of him, then using that hatred to sneak through dismantling the First...however, I am still hoping enough will see through that...begin to create a momentum toward freedom...sooner rather than later now, non-violence no bloodbath.
Well, it's a lovely morning here on the Pacific raincoast...hope you are too...I truly tend to imagine LI as harboring wooded glens and creeks where fairies play...is Long Island kinda ritzy some parts? I saw that the Vanderbilts had a summer house there...Consuelo loved it as a child...I was about to dash over and take a look...but it burned down. She lived to age 87, that was 1964 -- eventually married the love of her life, hurrah for her!
