So we've won. I feel like I've personally screamed my head off at my computer, the TV, and the radio in an effort to really GOTV. Yeah, I realize that no one other than my dog heard me, but that's not the point. The point is that we won and that I can lie to myself by pretending that my yelling helped us win in some small way.
Now it's time to follow-up on that win.
In case you thought it would be by more yelling, you'd be wrong. What I'm suggesting, however, will ruin the Republican party for the next 40-80 years!
The Republican party are currently in a retooling process. They are trying to find new lies to spin, and new forms of pollutions that will better impact your health (so they can buy an insurance company to treat you, of course), so that they can take your money while killing you, the whole time telling you that you need them in no insignificant way and that the relationship is one-sided.
So what do you do? We need agents. We need people to stand up and say, "HEY we didn't hear enough about what you boys REALLY think of rape. Please do go on!" We need to convince them that every single thing they think went wrong, did. We need them on a multi-pronged multi-faceted and multi-various line of attack that spreads them so thin that poking them tears their hide. We need to get them and keep them second guessing what it would take to pick their poor party out of the crapper now that they've had it handed back to them with the words EPIC FAIL emblazoned upon it for all throughout the lands to see. We need to make them keep their sad. That is how movements are forced to fall apart - from within, due to discontent.
They would do the same thing. They do the same thing now. So it's okay. Give in to the urge. Do the subtle victory dance at work while you know the Repub-work-dude is looking, and then maybe even look over your shoulder and catch him looking and play innocent. Go ahead, it's your life. You can. It will feel good. They do it even though we won. We should never be like them. Never...go ahead anyway though, back into the sign that's still out for the R/R Bobsey twins on your neighbors pock-stained yard. Tell them that the socialist bogeyman is coming. Tell them that now they'll have decent medicine when they get old and some money to retire to and that this should scare the ever living crap out of them. Go ahead. Seriously. Twist their heads around until next cycle when they start their election process. By then we should have found a way to implant ideas deeply enough that we'll already know what angle they'll be playing and have it and the next three follow-ups countered before we even get started.
Just make sure to follow up. It's not something our party is known for and it has to be a systemic, long-term, broad-based approach so that the pressure doesn't let up. I realize there's almost no time to enjoy the win, but that's the thing they keep doing that we don't, and how they've managed to take it back after a short amount of time. I'm just proposing we try it instead this time.
