What’s Happening 11-1-16

November 1, 2016

If you are just now sitting down at the election table, you need to know that this is a very high stakes game. The highest since 2000. The parties are playing for control of the Executive and the Judiciary for the next 4 years, 8 if Hillary runs again, and probably 20 if the Dem candidate in 2020 or 2024 is a Progressive such as Warren. That would mean (starting in 2008) 20-24 years, straight, with a Dem president. Meanwhile the Senate majority very likely would be Dem (at least most of the time), and the House majority, too, no later than 2020.

They are playing, furthermore, for a significant weakening of sexism, racism, xenophobia, and addiction to money in our national personality, plus a holding action against fascism (AS). Or not.

Meanwhile the R Party is on the verge of fragmentation, and possibly self-destruction. At the least, it is faced with becoming a “permanent” minority party that no longer has the ability to achieve minority rule

Still want to play? You bet!
