clarion call

this may come as a complete surprise to some- perhaps not- but i am a patriot...yep...i am old fashioned and follow the traditions of my family and i believe that the idea of america can be realized...in short, if you didn't know better, you might think i was a republican...they firmly believe that democrats are liberal heathens who don't give a damn about god and country and believe that they have cornered the market on patriotism and traditional values...

i am here to say YOU ARE WRONG....

what we sane folks need to start doing is actually voicing those words- YOU ARE WRONG...because the republican party is wrong...people who vote republican or libertarian are wrong...now, i know i'll take a wrath of shit for that- but it's true...

consider the right wing platform:

make the rich richer
take away any and all safety nets
take away affordable health care
take away women's rights
take away worker's rights
steal elections through voter suppression and fraud
take away civil liberties
deregulate, privatize and put profits over people every time
marginalize and discriminate against women, non whites and gays

the right in this country are at war- they are at war with the rest of us...anyone who doesn't lock step with their ideology...we cannot continue to allow them to 'agree to disagree' it is far too late for that...i am not being melodramatic i am speaking the truth...one only has to listen to the propaganda from the media- not just fox noise- or watch a network tv show thinly disguised but propaganda too...one only has to listen or read comments by republican voters who buy into the rhetoric...

it is not enough to vote...the right is taking over state and local governments through stealing elections and redistricting and they are passing restrictive laws against women and other minorities...they are passing shoot to kill gun laws, open carry and concealed carry laws...the corporates have their own security forces...the militias are traditionally rightwing hate groups and even the bible thumpers have their soldiers for jesus...

seriously- folks....putting your heads in the sand doesn't make the problem go away and neither does one election...these people have been fighting the rest of us for over 30 years....they have set aside their guerilla tactics and are openly engaging and we sit back and take it...it won't be over in one battle or 10- we must always be vigilant because the moment we don't take these folks seriously- this country is done...and we are close to it now...

so- i will say- if you vote for any right wing party- you are wrong...you are a selfish, paranoid, fearful, racist, misogynistic, homophobic bigot who only cares about profit over people- and you are wrong...
