It’s pretty self-evident that the Democratic Establishment in Washington is completely useless right now, at least for people like me. I’m a high information independent voter who was among the first in my district to vote Election Day because I wanted to vote for a Democrat. I felt that if a Democratic majority in Congress simply showed up to work in January, we’d have impeachment hearings by the middle of February.
Sooooo… here it is nearly the end of January…and nothing.
We’re set to have the Cohen hearings in early February, but that’s pretty meh. Why is it so hard for Democrats to be as fucking bloodthirsty as Republicans when it comes to investigating the president of the other party. What is wrong with you dumb-dumbs?
I guess I’m radicalizing in a strictly ideological manner. In other words, I’m NOT one to, like, start building pipe bombs in my apartment. Fuck that. I’m a man of peace and I don’t wish physical harm on anyone I disagree with politically. Even punching Nazis, while cute to talk about, makes me queasy in any real terms.
But I do think once you establish what the ideology of the Radical Resistance is, that the rest falls into place pretty easily. Massive peaceful protests are pretty much the only weapon the people have at this point, apparently.
Yet that’s not going to happen as long as the economy is doing well. So, all I can do is just vent online and hope the FBI doesn’t knock on my door — even though I’m definitely NOT advocating violence. Using my Constitutional rights to public assembly, yes, violence, no.
I am very frustrated, regardless. And I can talk and write fairly well, so it at least makes me feel better than I’m playing little drummer boy in that regard. But probably what’s going to happen in a best case scenario is at some point between now and August 2019, the economy will go south (because of No Deal Brexit?) or the Mueller Report will drop or something REALLY bad will be reported about Trump.
I don’t know. I’m just frustrated and I find myself thinking up different angles for the topic of Radical Resistance. So, that’s what’s happening. I wish people would start to talk about this concept, though. That would be pretty cool.
If we could get the center radicalized then we could get rid of Trump. But, alas, it’s surreal how cagey Democrats in the House are about even looking into Trump at all. Fuck that. Come on guys take a stand for once.
