To The Pompous Liberal Class - Shut Up For One Cycle

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the tax bill has passed. After a few minor cosmetic changes in conference committee, this travesty will be law.

During last year's election, the most irritating comment that people (supposedly on my side) kept saying to me is "it doesn't matter, there isn't any difference between the parties."

If you would dare to say that to me today, I would turn seven shades of red, blow up and take you out with me.

There is a pompous liberal class that complains about the Democratic Party ad nauseum without seemingly having the slightest clue that Democrats are the ones holding the finger in the dyke. Well, the dyke is breaking up right now.

Susan Sarandon, a card carrying member of the pompous class, said recently that "if Hillary had been elected, we would be at war." Well, spoiler alert - we ARE at war and now the war has spread with attacks on the middle class.

I used to believe that at some point the Democratic (or liberal) party members would come together and fight the common enemy; instead of fighting among ourselves. But, even now, that doesn't seem to be happening.

2018 is an off year - but it is vital...crucial...consequential. If we do not unite the Democrats, the opposition, and the independents - this country will be changed forever. I am not kidding around here. We are in deep trouble.

If the pompous liberal class can hold off on their uppityness for one cycle, maybe, just maybe, we can put that finger back in the dyke. If we can, by some miracle, create a Democratic wave with enough force to bring back a check on all of this madness - then you can go back to your pompousity and go back to your criticisms. At least, then, you will have some elected officials who will actually choose to listen.

This is not a drill. We need to be at battle stations. And we need to be one voice. I knew that this tax scam idea would be possible with an all Republican government - but I never thought it would be this bad. To transfer wealth from the bottom to the top takes us into a country of oligarchs. The Putin governing method with the Putin puppet President.

It is time to elect Democrats at every level. If they hold office, then we can hold them accountable. But we do not have the luxury of nuance. Work to get the best possible candidates in place - but once the ballot is set....vote like your life depends on it - because it does.
