This is their ONE chance, and they are going all in [View all]

Last edited Mon Jun 3, 2024, 11:23 PM - Edit history (1)

This 2024 election is the Retrumplicans "kill-shot". It's their silver bullet, wooden stake through the heart, Photon Torpedoes into the ray protected particle vent and underwater rifle shot into a SCUBA tank in a killer sharks mouth, all rolled into one.

The "Unified Reich" has been methodically and relentlessly working to this point since Roosevelt defeated Hoover. They are NOT going to give up their nefarious plans for some quaint ideal like the "rule of law".

They know that they either seize power NOW, or face the fate of the Whigs.

The demographics of the country are against them. The young people want nothing to do with them. The majority of women (those opposed to a crotch grabbing moron) are done with them.

Hell, in 32 years they have won the popular vote for president ONCE!...ONCE!!!!!

Oh! And that ONE TIME was after the worst terrorist attack on Americans in our entire history happened, on their watch!

They only have the limited power they have now due to meticulous gerrymandering, voter suppression, and some arcane, asinine system that says the 600K people in Wyoming get the same Senate representation that 40 million Californians receive.

Oh, and they have power due to the "Press".

It's fucking madness!

That craven, orange Nazi fuckstick gave some rambling shambling "press" event following his conviction on 34 felony counts that could only be described as FUCKING insane!

And, what does the "press" do? They treat it like it should be fucking taken seriously. Are you fucking kidding me?!!!

Why? It can't be what they claim. It can't be "well, we have to cover him because millions follow him"

Really? President Biden got 8 fucking million more votes than that crazy asspickle and has millions of supporters. he can't get a damned word in edgewise.... despite being the most powerful man on the planet with real serious shit going on.

The "press" foists this asshat on us, and normalize fascism from the Retrumplicans, because they know that you and I, and the folks coming home from a day of work, turn on the tube as we're making dinner, see that ignorant buffoon at a podium and wonder; "what stupid Nazi/KKK fever dream is he going to spew now?"

Next thing you know, some annoying women screaming a stupid song at the top of her lungs is trying to sell me Allegra.

It's not news. It's infotainment.

I don't know how we fix it. But, I do know that I am tired. It is exhausting! Democrats aren't perfect, but the people in blue states need some help.

It's time for the people in Indiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, Wyoming, Ohio and other red states to reject this fascist shit.

Retrumplicans won't change a damned thing, until they start losing elections in those states.
