Hello, world, from Millennial Democrats! Today a number of millennial observations have been collected and given a voice about what is going on right now in America. We wanted to know how people are feeling about the Republican decision to end their congressional probe relating to Russian meddling into our election in 2016. So we asked around and asked for some opinions.
As always, the opinions expressed therein are not necessarily the views of the organization as a whole.
But they’re pretty close.
The Republican congressional panel had barely finished announcing that it had found no evidence of collusion between President Trump’s campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 election before the Russian embassy was on Twitter boasting about it.
One Millennial Democrats contributor said to another, A lot of this posturing is all because Putin is up for reelection. The response was, “Lol, what election? You mean that day that people go out in the streets and move around randomly in Russia?”
Yeah. In other news, Rex Tillerson has been sacked as Secretary of State, replaced by CIA director Mike Pompeo.
“I think Rex will be much happier now,” Trump said, hilariously.
That makes five top Trump administration officials to have resigned or been fired, in the last two weeks. It’s absolute chaos in there. Trump’s entire circle is in total meltdown.
Director of the National Economic Council Gary Cohn, who was Trump’s top economic adviser, resigned from the White House last week after a dispute over new tariffs on steel and aluminum.
Hope Hicks, Trump’s communications director and longtime confidante, resigned late last month.
Trump’s longtime personal aide John McEntee was fired and escorted from the White House on Monday, sources tell CNN.
And Josh Raffel, a senior spokesman who worked extensively with Trump’s daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump, left the White House last month.
In other news, the GOP, as the majority party in the House of Representatives, has shut down their probe into the Russian interference into our election. Tom Rooney(R-Fla.) came out right away in condemnation of this, saying “We have lost all credibility”, but only now that it’s safe. They came in, hit their lick on the tax cut, and bounced.
This is what has come of all the shouting for revolution that far-left extremists did in the last few years of the Obama administration. People really need to understand that progress can be slow. When you try to force it, you end up creating chaos instead.
To not vote, or to in a close election vote for the long shot and throw away that vote, is reckless and stupid in the most extreme senses of the word. Let’s make sure to cover this point thoroughly.
The abhorrent, abominable, anathema to common sense decision of a few thousand people to vote third party in 2016 is the reason Donald Trump is in the White House now.
Never vote for pure evil like Trump by abstaining. We must vote smart.
One of our contributors had a conversation with a self-proclaimed anarchist the other day.
“Oh, all governments are fascist. It’s all just levels of fascism, blah blah blah.”
That’s what you call a cop-out. It’s a way to get around taking sides because you’re afraid of the intensity people bring to the political table. If you are not capable of seeing the difference between the U.S. and Russia, it is because you have never really suffered.
The political fulcrum of America is swinging back left again, but it will not help if the youth of the country allow themselves to be hornswoggled. Particularly in 2016, a great many on the far left ended up walking down a path of smarmy arrogance without a clue as to what they were truly up against.
By not voting, and by helping to spread around the pernicious myth that our votes don’t matter, they’re giving up the only power we have. If votes do not matter, then why do Republicans spend so much money every year to keep us from using them?
It would be nice if extremists on both sides of the aisle took a step back to really look at what they are doing. Realistically speaking, though, it’s only on the left that there’s any chance of this happening. It’s time to make a choice. There’s not going to be a free college Utopia. There will either be a democracy or a fascist theocracy.
A fascist theocracy is nothing but a form of chaos. It’s a gigantic step backward for mankind. It reduces us once again to tribalism, controlled by a Mafia-type structure of feudalism. And all feudalism is, is an endless war. Hence the meaning of the word “feud” to describe a long-running conflict without end.
It would essentially mean a return to the tribal State of Nature. It’s hard to understand why anyone would want that, but there it is.
At the end of the day, there’s no place like Switzerland. Your rights to neutrality will not be respected. The decision will get made for you. You can side with order, or you can side with chaos. The latter is a really bad idea.
