Response to babylonsister (Original post)

14. This is a good sign for future elections, of course, but . . .

it also means that 1 in 4 of us are goose-stepping supporters of the very fascism and plutocracy that the rest of us despise and are fighting. 1 in 4 still remain loyal to a Party that stands for the extremely wealthy, for the extremely racist, for the authoritarian rule of “strong men”; they are constitutional contrarians who regard that document as an occasionally useful but never binding piece of parchment.

And I find that disconcerting.

Still, if 3 out of 4 of us eschew those fascist values represented by the modern GOP, that’s a sign of health. So, if America were a physical body, its health would be OK, but the doctor would recommend annual check-ups and eternal vigilance.
