43. The battle lines are interesting

 


and the wheels on the bus go round and round

some buses go forward on round wheels
other buses have square wheels and remain stagnent or fall behind

but always

slow and steady wins the race

ask Lincoln, ask FDR, ask LBJ, ask Jimmy Carter ask Obama

Probably the greatest this country ever had it freedom of all kind wise was 1977-1978 to early 1979. (right up until AIDS stopped it all).

then it was backwards for most of the next 29 years while people attempted to deny what was good.

Now its forward again.

slow and steady wins the race

(like anyone halfway sane actually thought Eugene McCarthy, John Anderson, Ross Perot, Ralph Nader, Ron Paul, George McGovern, etc. actually stood a chance of crossing the finishing line ahead.

btw-how do you think people got their jobs in the first place?
It took a Kennedy NOT to run in 2012 to have an opening.
IT took President Obama to actually give Ms. Warren a job in his cabinet, and when that didn't work, encouragement and lack of a serious challenger in the primary (not to mention his coat tails in the general).

Sheesh. (just like Bill Clinton helped the ensemble in 2012 yet was shunned in 2000.)
You don't shun assets. And you don't expect assets to do things in politics out of the kindness of their heart either. They do it to further the cause they are backing.

Much as I love Al Gore(the liberal Al Gore), not embracing Bill, who gave him the VP nod in the first place cost millions of votes.
Not embracing in past races past heroes(like Jimmy Carter) showed a party divided is a party without victory.
(which is why in 2016, Jeb will be back as nominee, because his name was shunned this time).
And I am not going to bring it up, but there is another name that is probably very important in this discussion, but one that will not be put on this thread and veer the thread to a different angle.(an angle, like everybody has who is in politics. None is 100% pure.I always think 1/2 the problem is thinking some are without realizing that compromise is what makes greatness)

Forward.
we know what was backward.
Never again(like my forefathers said).
