08 Apr PARTISANSHIP IS KING.
Republicans and Democrats just gave trillions to corporations that haven’t even begun to feel the pain of this pandemic. They threw crumbs (a one-time payment of $1,200 and modestly increased unemployment payments) to the 99% and guaranteed a far greater economic Depression than the last one.
Millions of Americans have lost their jobs and their employer-provided health insurance. Millions more face bankruptcy and eviction, foreclosure, and homelessness.
Scores of thousands (at a bare minimum) face death.
Already, essential workers — those who bring us food and healthcare — are dying.
Does the entire country need to collapse for Americans to recognize that no Republican or Democrat is worth a damn? Not Trump, not Biden, not Pelosi, not McConnell — none of them?
If this country had any sense at all, no Democrat or Republican would get a single vote in 2020. Whether it’s Covid-19 or the collapse of the rule of law and biosphere, these courtesans to power have doomed us all. They’re history’s worst fascists, by any standard. In the last few decades, they’ve butchered millions of Muslims, like the 21st-century Nazis they are. They’ve torn down the rule of law and erected a system that permits global war and assassinations anywhere.
Vote for anyone else — of any party. But stop voting for the “lesser” of two unmitigated evils, both of which serve the same masters.
A vote for the duopoly is a vote for the extinction of all life.
But then again, partisanship is the order of the day… Go, Team ______!
(Red or Blue, either way we’re screwed.)
