  •  Mars and the stars. (14+ / 0-)

    This election was the turning point between two possible paths.  One led down the road to A Handmaid's Tale.  The other leads down the road toward Starfleet.  

    Rational policies, new respect for science, dealing with the climate crisis, and sending humans to Mars.  The latter being the very first step toward permanent colonies on the Moon and Mars, the exploration of the outer solar system, and ultimately the many-generational voyages of colony ships (plus or minus new physics making it faster) to other star systems.

    We now have a renewed shot at eternity.

    Had it gone the other way, we would more likely have ended up as a footnote in the history of natural selection.

    This election was the turning point toward a future with a future.

      who would have thought the only path forward was not "bipartisanship" but democrats going their own way?

      DGOTW... That's something they're going to learn to be terrifed of. Let's steal from the men's rights activist ....the festering nightmare that is... a term from their playbook If the dnc dscc or dccc send you mailers, send that link back to them and tell them you won't send money to people who defend democrats who betray progressive principals! up yours!

      I think we would've been more likely to see something like The Road or Mad Max.

      Romney flip-flopped far more than Kerry ever did.
