Well, It's Official – We've Been Betrayed by Progressives, Yet Again!
Nancy Pelosi is on her way to being Speaker of the House. This is because, yet again, our so called progressives seemed to have been elected to congress to go along to get along, and not really fight for "the people".
Queen Pelosi has held that position since 2003, and I must say, her horrible track record rather proves she does not care about the American people. And the so called "progressives" that gave her their vote, BETRAYED, all of those that help get them elected.
If feels like a big, long knife in the back I tell ya.
The so called "progressives" in congress have proved they do not have the conviction of their principles. Something the Tea Party has in spades, which enabled them to take over the republican party in congress in just two years.
Ironically, all under the stewardship of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, under whose leadership saw the Democrats lose over 1,000 state legislators across the nation.
Not to mention losing the super majority they wasted on bringing about the worst Neoliberal healthcare plan, which seemed to be fresh from the Heritage Foundation's facelift of something resurrected from from Nixon's closet!
We didn't elected these people to congress to start a new career, but it's looking more and more like that is exactly what we did.
And it's rather understandable after all the time, effort, energy, not to mention our money wasted helping these people get elected, that many are rather upset and using foul language to express the deep sense of betrayal.
I don't blame them, I feel that deep sense of betrayal too. I just want to scream FUCK as loud as I can. And that's what this really is, a betrayal by these so called "progressives" to "we the people" that help get them elected.
The bar of expectation is so low, they themselves are making all kinds of excuses to continue to deny the American people, Healthcare for All! My goodness, we have had to endure a string of betrayals and the accompanying gut punches that go with it for years now. (It's abuse I tell ya!)
It was bad enough in 2016 to have Senator Sanders capitulate to the establishment and campaign for Hillary Clinton. And not once raise the issue of being tossed out of the presidential race by an entirely rigged Democratic Primary. Gee, and what did we do, voted for Hillary only to have her totally screw it up because she so god damn arrogant!
Then we elected some "progressives" to congress, for the sole purpose to take on and challenge the establishment, because the establishment hasn't been representing "we the people", and to help support Saint Bernie's political revolution, by electing more "progressives"!
Hell, Bernie told us, if we want to change the system, we have to come out and vote, and by golly vote we did. Gee Saint Bernie, do we have to show for it? We did what you asked but the so called progressives keep failing to deliver, falling all over themselves to go along, to get along.
We got some "progressives" elected to congress, but their voting record, like AOC's whose has only voted against the party less that 6% of the time, which looks more like they have voted to go along, to get along. How does change happen, if you don't fight for it?
Did Mama Bear share that "secret" with you AOC?
Heck, they have supported the most horrible legislation. The Patriot Act, endlessly voting for the NDAA, and the horrible crap that piece of legislative bovine droppings contains. Heck, they have voted to give Trump just about everything he has asked for. Even going to far as 180 democrats voting to give him MORE money for the military budget, 120 billion more than Obama's last military budget. It's absurd!
These are not "progressives", but careerists. More worried about committee assignments and back room dealing than engaging in actual "Democracy", and fighting for the people who got them elected in the first place!
Is that really too much to ask of people we elect to congress, to actually represent us? To fight for us, like they said they would do on the campaign trails?
I am so tired of being betrayed by those who claim to represent us. And most especially by the so called progressives. They have proven themselves to be all talk and no conviction what so ever.
Firey speeches don't mean a hill a beans if you don't have any convictions, which the #ForceTheVote brew haha has exposed. You've lost my trust, my faith, and my support.
You'll now have me, and the Republicans to worry about, because I'm going to be on you like stink on poo poo, holding your feet to the fire, because you lack conviction!
We see you now with eyes wide open!
Apologies but from now on, this is my motto!
(I'll be nice to my fellow people here at C99, but everyone else, well, STFU and GTFO!)
Let the chaos begin!
