American Brown Shirts
Screw Godwin’s law… let’s cut to the chase. Friends of mine just got vandalized. They are big Democrats and decorated their yard along the highway with American flags and pro-Dem election signs. It all got ripped out and stolen last night. These are Brown Shirt tactics.
WE NEED TO FIGHT HARD TO KEEP THE ULTRA-RIGHT OUT OF POWER.
I am not a Democrat. Like many progressives, I am deeply disappointed in the Democratic party. I am nevertheless urging you all to vote; in close races I am urging you to vote for the Democrat.
There are party differences. Here in New Mexico we fought off oil wells in my little valley with great difficulty. Our Republican candidate for Governor pledges to make our state more “business friendly” and put New Mexicans back to work. That is code. She means she will strike down what few weak environmental laws we have and let the oil rigs in. Drill baby, drill.
There are Republican calls to abolish minimum wage and more than just a few. They are talking about child labor laws and Public Schools and so much more being Unconstitutional. That’s the spirit. When you get an open wound, rub salt in it.
If cutting taxes for the rich, and waiting for trickle down worked, after 30 years we would have a strong and prosperous middle class. Instead we are sitting here in the middle of the ruins listening to the glassy eyed right beating the same tired drum.
