So all the progressives I know (other than myself) are cheering the election results, patting themselves on the back for a job well done. This is despite the fact that to get the job done, even in the face the christian coalition fucking up in every possible way, is to invite conservatives into the party. Pathetic.
So, I’m making my new year’s resolution early this year: I am going to be apolitical. Being aware of the constant flux of the political landscape simply divorces you from the brutal reality, that despite the platitudes that we are dealt, we shift further and further towards third party control over our daily lives. The political spectrum is static filling my screen, and I’m just letting go.
