1. Money, lobbying, post political careers for politicians and military generals

3. Because those who have held primacy for so long are getting more and more threatened.

Because the fights to get the things we need began a long time ago, and younger people think things could never go back and be as bad as we know they could be.

5. Because we have reached the point where too many psychopaths are holding positions of

responsibility in both government and private industry. Psychopaths are interested only
in their own welfare and making financial profits -- and at the expense of everybody else,
including their deaths.

If it should ever happen that Right-wingers should run the White House for 5 terms in a
row, as it had happened under FDR and Truman, the USA will definitely have become the
bottom member among the Third World nations.

Psychopaths in positions of power can only bring death and destruction to our nation.
Their character traits and consequent behavior can lead to nothing else.

6. as our expanding numbers increase the stress on the planet, and on us,

as systems that support society break down under the weight, as natural systems break down from the human need for resources to survive, we can expect increasing violence from stressed out people who act out their rage. ALL those who are weak and vulnerable are at risk.

Remember the saying, "Good fences make good neighbors"?
What do you think happens when there are so many neighbors that your fence offers no privacy, no space?

No space, no beauty, no peace.

7. This shit is scary...

as of this past year these fuckers really mean it. The carping about abortion
and the race baiting is no longer just about winning the votes of evangelicals
and crusty old white dudes. The last generation that had a problem with
enfranchising women and minorities is having some nasty ass death throes.
Fat Tony and and the transvaginal probe crowd are more powerful versions of
that racist, misogynist, all-around bigoted uncle you try to tolerate at Christmas.
Well, these people shouldn't be tolerated in their positions. If these assholes aren't
defeated, Jim Crow will return and the Handmaids Tale will no longer belong in the
fiction section. FUUUUUUUUCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKK.

And everything that goes with it. They are so viciously evil and retarded and they want to destroy this country.

9. Because that is the only direction. The toggle determines the rhetoric used to explain why.
