I'm still surprised and amazed at how many people support president Tramp. Certainly, it's not 50%, not 40% that believe Tramp's bullshit. I don't follow polls much, and Americans ARE that stupid (our schools lag behind the developing world), but the majority of this country can't be, just can't be that silly.
I think you are correct - progressive values are inevitably going to win. Case-in-point: the state of Michigan has some very regressive politicians, who are in power due to Gerrymandering. We have 3 proposals on the ballot. In summary:
Proposal 1: Legalize recreational marijuana [I'm predicting it will pass; we already have legalized medicinal marijuana]
Proposal 2: Establish an independent citizens redistricting commission [I'm predicting it will pass, because... FUCK GERRYMANDERING]
Proposal 3: Voting Rights Policies Initiative [This proposal will make it easier to vote in my state. This one might have a tougher time passing because of the right-wing FARCE/MYTH of voter "fraud", even though every study in the history of this country shows minimal-to-no (<.001%) voter fraud]
So even though our Michigan politicians are ass-backwards, regressive, worthless, old white men, the people still have the will and the ability to amend our constitution, and we will, until the crusty old white men try to take that away from us.
Speaking of which, this has happened many times in the past decade, and each time it happens, I become angry: http://www.michiganradio.org/post/lawmakers-lansing-back-referendum-proofing-controversial-bills
The politicians in Michigan are criminals. So what else is new? How else do you end up with a Flint Water Crisis?
>...and they have ever since we started cooking humans instead of eating them raw...and it's been progress ever since. Of course those who fear change and want things to remain as they are mount a backlash, it's normal....but eventually the world moves on...women couldn't vote since forever and then they could....children of nine were forced to work and then they weren't....people had to work 60 hours a week and then 40...the Progressive agenda ALWAYS wins in the end...if it defeats a backlash is due to how prepared progressives are to meet the backlash...even there, even though we may be slow to respond, when we do, we win yet again...
>The day the South fired on Fort Sumter was the day slavery ended...the Confederates turned out to be the biggest Abolitionists of all!
>Same with Hitler...the fact that he did so much damage was only due to the slow response to his rise...had progressives been motivated they could have shut him down easily...
>Once upon a time racism was more respectable because there were avowed intellectuals and scientists and professors who championed it...it was much harder back then to challenge its ditzy notions because there was a certain level of high-minded support for it.
>These days it's very different. The proponents of racism today are greasy and feebleminded...there are no scientists (except that one at Stanford) and the low-brow intellectual Jordan Petersen...the rest live in trailer parks, if not in reality then in their heads....and Trump, of course...but he's such a shyster and dimwit he does the cause no credit...
>We have to keep reminding ourselves that Trump lost the vote by over three million votes..so the idea that "America" wanted Trump is another lie...he won by 70,000 votes due to a system which, not surprisingly, was instituted because of a fear of the Black vote.
>Don't despair....he can easily be defeated...although we should ever be grateful that he won and helped bring out the puss of American "values".
>...the planet will get us all in the end anyway.
