Fandango asked the question yesterday and I realized, it’s a more important question than whether or not we keep or get rid of the orange baby-knapper now or eventually.
It’s about America. It’s about keeping watch. Making sure the many “bad guys” don’t take over.
Make no mistake. There are plenty more where he came from. They may be slicker-of-tongue and brighter than he. They undoubtedly have better grammar and hopefully, a better grip on reality, but they are no less evil. No less mean-spirited, cruel, or rapacious.
Our need to keep watching the state of the state should never have ended. We forgot. Life got comfortable. We relaxed and let things slide.
Now we know better. We need to keep watch. Regardless of how long it takes us to extract ourselves from this disaster, we can never go back to figuring “it’s just fine” and paying no attention to what’s going on in the ranks of power.
When we un-elect the big orange one, there will be another and another and another. That’s the reality. We just weren’t paying attention.
And when we get rid of “him,” how long before everyone goes back to sleep and it happens again?
Fifty years is the usual cycle.
That’s how long it takes us to forget the last disaster.
I can see the future. I guarantee, it will happen again and will never stop happening as long as the people who live here think their government has nothing to do with them.
