Message to republicans.
And an explainer for democrats and independents. Why they're so anti-science, anti-"other", anti-law and order and turn everything upside down. The mask is off. I suspect many adherents don't understand what they've become. Sometimes things are hard to see.
Don't take this to mean I think the majority of the democratic establishment are democratic. Taking corporate bribes (campaign financing) and acting on behalf of the 607 billionaires who have a stranglehold on all our lives is what allowed Trumpism to rise in the first place. But we're taking our power back. The mask is off them as well.
Nobody claiming to represent the general public has any business taking money from corporations, banks, fossil fuels or tech.
And any institution that’s oppressive and not in service to the people ought to be held accountable to us to regulate, improve, change, dismantle, or rethink.
That is true whether it’s Dupont, congress, the IRS, ICE, the criminal justice system, the federal reserve, Facebook, a political party, the constitution, the health insurance industry or the presidency. That’s what democracy means. People rule.
So it’s in our best interest to give us all the best education we can. And an equitable participation in our economy. Regardless of what family you’re born into. That’s what real patriotism looks like. A humans first approach.

This is a message to democrats. As the wise have advised, before we look at the splinter in another’s eye, we must attend to the log in our own. This is tough love. It may be hard to hear but it’s necessary.
The purpose of democracy is to maintain human values over materialism. A democratic government must be fully accountable and devoted to the people and their well-being every day.
Let’s get this crime family out of our government buildings.
Share it if you feel it.
