Today thousands upon thousands showed up in Washington DC to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s famous speech,
It was gratifying to see the mall so packed full of peaceful but getting angry people.
It was reminder that when you attempt to suppress the public from their right to vote you take the risk of have grabbing a tiger by the tail… A tiger that will roar and will not be silenced by bigotry and by stupid fake laws that try to stop the people from voting which is their constitutional right.
Today will be a watershed moment for the rest of the country that, in some areas, is now trying to suppress the vote of minorities in order to try to stay in power when they actually know they have no power but the power of money provided for them by their corporate masters.
When a political party feels weak enough in their hopes for electoral victory they would try to make it difficult for any eligible American to vote then that party is not “of the people” or “for the people.”
It is for something very different and worrisome. It’s for injustice and narrow framing of a society to be molded in their image.
And we thought we were over all that and moving on to as more enlightened experience…?
No we didn’t !
We looked in the face of Mitt Romney and the face of his elitist wife and the rest of the so-called “Christian” Republicans and we saw the blank stare of the people who think they are the ruling class. That they’re smarts make them special, their money makes them untouchable…
YES….THESE PEOPLE STILL THINK THEY ARE RIGHT AND THEY WILL SPEND A BILLIONS DOLLARS TO PROVE.
They will lie, they will cheat ,they will gerrymander, they will filibuster and they will fake scandals and cause scandals and threaten government with disaster to attempt to get their way. They will even kill sooner or later…
They are the enemy of you and I ..make no mistake about it…they want you enslaved, they want you poor , they want you uneducated, they are the bastards who will stop at nothing to take down Democracy as we know it and make this country into their playground for big business.
But you know all that ..so what the fuck are you gonna do about it?..
I’m just an old guy with a computer and a soul that needs a rest.
