21. I doubt the media will, they'll still be owned by the same people, who don't respect truth or us.
As far as the DOJ, they can't, no matter how movie history portrays them, cannot ride in to avenge the wrong. This is still a state matter by the Constitution. And that means standing up to the wrong-headed, hateful Teahadists on a one-on-one basis in every state, county, city, town, meeting, everywhere.
This is the equation. We must support our poorly funded great Democratic candidates running for office. My neighborhood, which was probably the most liberal and civic minded in the state for generations, is suffering an influx of Libertarians, Paul supporters and Teahadists. They vote against all progressive measures, taxes for firemen, police, on the basis of 'liberty,' resisting the evil government, etc. They want public schools, everything sold off. They hate anyone getting helped.
I've met some of our great young people running for office without funding, walking and knocking on doors, but they could not overcome the money the GOP used for their candidates, who persuaded voters. People say there are no progressive or liberals in the Democratic Party, who want the same things we do. Yes, there are, but you have to pay attention to these 'little' races.
'If it's going to be, it's up to me,' will have to be our motto. I get flak for resisting Democratic Party and DOJ bashing. It's easy to blame them, but 'we are' the government. From our neighborhood, churches, city meetings, schools and every other place. Not fussing at you, but I really want this to work!!
