I would never advocate violence against our politicians, no matter how insipid they are, no matter how despicable their actions.
But there are times when I see what they do for political points, or to push their agenda , without regard to the effects on people, and I think I hope someone else has fewer scruples. I wince thinking that. But is it too much to hope that some kind of non-violent action will get these bastards and their gleeful wrecking of us and our ideals out of office?At the moment, it certainly feels like it.
I know - "Wait till the next election, vote them out. If they aren't voted out, it means they're acceptable to most people". And I know that Trump has a solid 25% of the voting population who would support him no matter what he did. Some would do it if it meant damaging their own families. Others would say well, its the Democrats fault for not just going along with us. The number varies, from 24 to 26 percent, depending on the issue, with a high degree of overlap. But its consistently right around that core number. As long as the opposition is disorganized, thats all he and his crew need to continue, because with that number, the politicians -- thinking first of themselves -- will not bail on him, will not resist. Some will. Most will not.
It sucks and it sickens me.
