Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 04, 2018

When the Dems embraced the corporate neoliberal agenda in the 1980s and 1990s, the Republicans watched their key agenda vanish, free trade, deregulation, school privatization, the destruction of welfare, the War on Drugs ... were adopted by the Inauthentic Opposition Party. So Republicans shifted further to a racist and sexist platform to look different. A widely despised white-nationalist GOP is now united under the rule of a malignant narcissistic authoritarian monstrosity, a brazen racist-sexist who tears up nuclear missile treaties and critical environmental regulations for breakfast and lies to the public at least ten times per day. This malevolent party now controls all three branches of the federal government and most of the state governments, many of which are wreaking havoc all across the land. The dismal Dems get the nod on every count. Acknowledging that doesn't make you a neoliberal or even a Democrat, fellow workers and citizens. It just makes you an adult.

The only real solution to America's ills is a mass, ongoing, and highly organized popular rebellion against the Whole Damn System (WDS): class rule, racial oppression, patriarchy, empire and ecocide. Want to be able to safely vote for the things you believe in – peace, social justice, democracy, worker rights, civil rights, environmental sanity, and end to class rule, and more? We desperately need to draft a new governing charter including full public financing of elections and proportional representation mandating a fair and democratic, multi-party elections and party system beyond the big money winner-take-all first-past-the-post system that reigns in the U.S. today.

In the meantime Vote Democrat.

Some people aren't going to like the in your face reality offered in that piece. But it is reality, like it or not. Voting has consequences, it isn't something to use to demonstrate philosophical purity.

Voting is a meat ax, not a paintbrush.

Voting is each person's right to use as they choose.

"Voting is each person's right to use as they choose."

Does that make it okay to vote for Sharia law, if that's your thing?

Why not? You'd have to find it on a ballot somewhere first though.

Or a willing politician. For example, folks aren't voting to put kids in cages, but they're voting for folks who are okay with putting kids in cages.

Sounds like some people are already making preemptive excuses for a poor showing on Tuesday. Curse those evil states and their laws! Curse them, I say!
