I am perplexed by this. We know that liberal/progressive policies and programs are the only ones that have lasted the test of time and through logical evidence we know most all these policies and programs have improved our societies. Yet we are on the brink of letting conservatives have all the political power in our nations to dispose of these successful programs because...I don't know why. I am ashamed of my fellow citizenry who cannot find the will to be logical and think with common sense. It will be one of the most egregious intellectual and physical outcomes if we somehow allow a republican here in America to become president while republicans also currently control both houses of Congress.
Surely it will do me less harm since I am on the backside of my life but for all the younger generations to come this would be a disaster to democracy and enlightenment in epic proportions. Living in a metaphorical "dog eat dog" world where the survival of the fittest determines quality of life is thuggish and brutish. Is this who we are here in America? Are we just a bunch of delusional privileged beings trying to have our way like spoiled children? I can only say that my loyalties are to democracy and intelligence so when both of these are laid to waste by republican destruction it will be a struggle for many whose loyalties are the same just to survive.
