No Blue Wave

I hope I'm wrong, and I put this off a long time, but tomorrow has come


There won't be a Blue Wave Nov 6.
The Democrats won't rule Congress, and rhose sack of shit Republicans will claim a mandate from Heaven and People that doesn't exist.  In other words, the GOP will lie and gaslight and create a fantasy world and those of us living in reality will say "What the fuck?"

Why no Blue Wave?

Well, the obvious

  • Gerrymandering
  • Roll culling
  • Unnecessary voter ID laws
  • Closing polling places
  • And general hurdles to being allowed to vote
I mean, for fuck's sake, for the third election in a row, I'm getting told my signature doesn't match the one on file even though I called a month ago and did exactly what they told me to do, and still my ballot may not be counted because why? And I live in fucking libtard central Western Washington.

But, the bigger and more insidious reasons:
  • Apathy
  • Ignorance
  • Hatred
  • Pettiness
  • Fear
  • Greed
  • And the NEED to believe the lies, no matter how they collapse like tissue paper at the slightest sneeze of truth and reality.

People want to believe the lies so badly, they ignore what the GOP have done to them. They ignore reality.

Given what Sen Ted Cruz has done to fuck Conservatives and America, there is zero Christian or ethical excuse to vote for him, yet the sick creten is polling 50%, because people want to believe in the lie that he gives a rats ass about anything they care about.

There are literal Nazis openly running on the GOP ticket.

There are millions of people openly voting for accused child molestors and rapists and those voters scream "Fake News!" except when it was Sen Al Franken, when somehow one woman's claims were enough, but a dozen are not enough to stand against Kavanaugh or that dirtbag in the Spring out East, whatever his name was.

People are selfish, petty and stupid. People want comforting lies about the magic of guns instead hard truths about dead kids.

That's why there won't be a Blue Wave. The shit hasn't gotten deep enough yet for people to admit they're being drowned in it by the Republicans and their oligarch masters.
