First you headline your thread with "Dear Liberal Friends" Nice approach. Your headline speaks of reconciliation. You call your previous adversaries
friends. Good start.
Then you post up a video of a young woman who speaks out and basically supports all that I have heard Trump supporters saying through out the election
cycle. I found the video insightful enough and possibly common ground for both sides of the political spectrum to open dialogue with one another. All
good and worth building upon.
Then, one of our staunchly 'conservative members' replies with "Progressives aren't Liberals! They are Authoritarians! " adding nothing to the tread
that offered peace in it's headline. Great way to mend bridges over the chasm of political divides that the social controllers have led us into. But
as I said, that statement was from one of our 'staunch' conservative members.
But then, to even further derail from your headline of friendship, from the video that clearly shows that even though there are people to the left of
'staunchly conservative' can see the fallacies of the liberal shortsightedness, you then applaud the off the cuff and ignorant statement. But then
you say that the majority of rational hard working US citizens are sick of the status quo.
That I agree with completely. I am a hard working US citizen who has been sick of the status quo for decades. And I am progressive. So, do we work
together to continue this revolution? Now that the control freaks in both parties have been set back on their heels, do we try to work together to
keep them from gaining back their power?
Will that cause be served by alienating others who can just as clearly see the the rot of this system?
Because here is what I see Realtruth. The only reason that the Republican Party bosses did not want Trump was that they did not think that he could
beat her. Not because of the things he was saying, not because of his uncustomary approach to political power, but simply because they thought he
But now, that has changed. His victory has opened the doors for not him so much, but rather for the well hated Republican 'old guard' to reassert
themselves and take control of the party once more. How do we know? Because of the people he is putting in high positions. Once this has been done,
Trump will no longer be of use to that group and he will be conveniently, in one manner or another be set aside. One way or another. Maybe even just
let him sit in the WH so his fans still think he is in control.
But the real irony of your thread is right in our faces. The rebuke that that woman placed upon liberals, how they just sat back with Obama and let
him and the Democratic Party run the show, can now, at least to us progressives, be seen as a WARNING to those on the anti-corporate, anti-bankers,
anti status quo side of the Republican Party to NOT fall into the very same lethargy as did those who wanted change in 2008.
