9. Nothing that won't be wrong with a bunch of OTHER STATES should we have single party controlling all

branches of govt on the national level. Do you understand that once you have single party govt, comprised of a group of thugs who are not afraid to ram through a dizzying array of pre-written radical right legislation, much of it repressive and meant to consolidate political power even further, within fewer hands... extreme gerrymandering, voter suppression, eliminating the former non partisan election board in favor of one heavily favoring partisan Walker appointees.... I could go on.... do you understand that all that, combined with untold billions of dollars to spend on propaganda and screwing up elections.... its not like we can hit the un-do button and turn back the clock to 2010.

Its classic Shock Doctrine, USA style.

That is why the petty bickering betw HRC & BS supporters & threats to stay home on election drives me up the friggin wall. Probably the same bunch of yall that sat home both times and didn't bother to go vote for Barrett.

Trust me, we do NOT want single party government on the national level, in perpetuity. We might have survived it last time w/ the Bushes or whatever but trust me its a whole different ballgame now.

Just one other interesting tidbit for your consideration - the repressions under many repressive regimes happened quite legally, within the frame work of their existing govts - Nazi Germany of course the most famous. (And no, Im not comparing Republicans to Nazis - puh-leeze.)
