Once Upon A Time: a political fable
Almost immediately after the honeymoon of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election was over the nation was ready for a divorce.
At first the Trump supporters of the various Gooberville's in every nook and cranny across the nation responded with unrestrained glee as did the supporters of Trump on Wall Street. Gooberville is no longer happy but Wall Street is delirious, like a drunken queen hosting a party.
What happened to bring about this cataclysmic change was the waking up of the electorate concerning the complete sell out of both major political parties to their benefactors in the corporate world. The result left the American people penniless and hopelessly in debt and feeling like they'd been bitch slapped. Donald Trump and the Republicans and the Democrats joined together to declare the program a success. But now the people were awake and ready to take charge.
The wake up call came in the spring and summer of 2018 when the electorate gradually became aware that the ideology by which the Republicans and Democrats make decisions with was designed to extinguish the hope and dreams of the common person on Main Street. This realization was evidenced by the appearance of so called far left ideas, which in common ordinary practice were actually in the dead center. The dead center being the common areas of human need. Food, housing, employment, and healthcare, just ordinary things people need. Why the Republicans and Democrats have made it so tough on the people is for you to decide. But there is no question the present condition the people find themselves in is due to Republicans and
Democrats making laws.
Democrats making laws.
People did want jobs, did want healthcare, did want college education and most of all they wanted their hope restored and it was plain to all that the Republicans and the Democrats needed to be shown the door in order for hope to peek through the gloom and enter the room.
The flaw that was so carefully disguised in the language of MAGA along with the stoking of the fires of fear with incendiary xenophobic speech suddenly became evident.
It became evident in mass shootings and Nazi Parades and murders by Nazis in the streets of the U.S. many of these incidents done by Donald Trump's followers. Trump's appearance on the world stage has given the nation and the world a big bad bellyache.
As it turned out the American people, enough of them anyhow, came to the understanding that the Republicans and Democrats no longer serve the interests or share the same concerns and neither are they possessed by the same desires as the people who vote. In other words the people determined that neither the Republicans or the Democratic parties give a rats ass about Main Street and the families trying to make a living. It is evident in the laws they've made and have refused to make.
From the way it looked to the people in the Spring and Summer of 2018 it was time for a change and people from the center spoke up. There were oodles of them all making noise and stepping out of line and taking charge of their own destiny. Hearts were aflame with visions of peace and prosperity for them and their children and grandchildren. It was amazing. It was like seeing Ezekiel's old dry bones come to life. Some of them decided to run for office and there were so many of them their voices were like the sound of many rivers rushing together.
It was glorious and when election day came not a single Republican or Democrat was elected, and never again in a future election was a Republican or Democrat put in office and the people lived happily ever after.
