Books deals are the Democrats’ new excuse for hostile takeover. Publisher employees attack Pence over a book deal, now the whole Supreme Court needs an investigation commission because they get book deals. Of course there are other details. Of course there are problems that need fixing. But, some people are angry that an election doesn’t mean total domination. They aren’t only attacking a former Vice President from an administration they couldn’t control, nor are they only attacking the only Supreme Court that can hold them in check; they are attacking the idea that anyone can write a book—they are attacking free speech.
And, they don’t have the power to change the Supreme Court. If they try, their ability to change the Court will be decided by the Court—which always rules in favor of itself.
While Democrats bark up a tree of books, rich and greedy people are buying up land. Locals are freaked out. And, it seems the rich want to buy the world without anyone knowing. At one point, Zuckerberg told some Hawaiian locals that he’s sorry. No, he isn’t. He’s back at it. Another billionaire drew attention buying buildings in a small Colorado town. Locals are freaked out. Shouldn’t we all be?
Maybe we shouldn’t. Space travel continues. That’s funded by billionaires too. So, when we get to space, we won’t need to worry about billionaires buying up the land on Mars. They think they already own it, you see.
Liberal leaders’ ill preparation of their voters should be cause enough for suspicion. Ongoing disappointment is one of the best-kept secret evils of the two-party system. If Liberal leaders truly cared so much for their voters as their never ending empathy implies, they would have made sure that Liberal voters were ready for the inevitable losses associated with bipolar politics. But, they didn’t. Why?
Ill preparation from Liberal leaders isn’t the biggest cause for question.
The Republican compromisers in Congress over-reached. For decades, they have condescended and lectured their voters on “why having a majority means they must lose”. They didn’t seem to realize that, while Left-wing voters were sissified and setup for dismay this past election, Right-wing voters were strengthened and beat into confidence. As Tolkein writes of Morgoth, “his cunning overreached his aim; his words touched too deep, and awoke a fire more fierce than he designed.” Had the Republican Congress not passed so many Liberal laws on the Bush agenda–stiff FDA rules, the added bureaucracy of DHS, Common Core and centralized education, the Patriot Act, to name a few–the Religious Right would have gladly accepted his brother as the likely-to-lose nominee.
But, this raises the deeper question that Liberal voters also are just now considering: Why do Republican politicians, ostensibly controlled by so-called “Big Wall St. Money”, vote for Liberal ideas against the will of their voters? Wouldn’t that indicate that the so-called “Big Wall St. Money” wants Liberal things to happen? Given the evidence in plain sight, Liberal voters have every reason to question their own political talking points because those points all agree with “Big Wall St. Money”. It’s only a matter of time before they finish mourning their first failure and realize what they already knew.
