  •  Yep, the truth, she can hurt. (3+ / 0-)

    But we can't keep running from it in the interest of maintaining a myth about America that is increasingly, just a myth.  

    IMO, we are in a battle to save the best of what America can be.  And we're not going to do that without acknowledging the worst of what America can be, and how the right wing exemplifies that.

    We need to man up, become educated, and take the fight to the polls.  We DON'T need to believe in an America that always comes together, when it just ain't so.  See the last four years of Barack Obama's presidency, after the second worst financial crisis of modern times in this country, AND a republican party that put its own party and ideology over the best interests of this country.  So obviously, that it hurts.

    God, can ANYONE imagine the Democrats politicizing 9/11 in the shameless way the republicans did, AND are trying to do again with Bengazi.

    NO. NO. NO. We are not a united country, and we have often NOT been a united country in our past.  The story of this country, is and will always be,  who fought the hardest to move us beyond our worst selves.
