Motley Moose: Real Change Takes Time
The stakes are high, but it’s evident to anyone who’s even remotely paying attention that the GOP are willing to sacrifice the nation, over the well being of citizens, in their quest to achieve and maintain political power.
What’s harder for me to stomach is the bizarre intransigence from the left of center folk who decry ‘incrementalism’. We saw this all throughout the healthcare debate; we saw it again with DADT, and again with FinReg. Nothing has been good enough for these people. Nothing.
Again and again, over and over, issue after issue. I’m not talking about the general swath of leftward-leaning people who have disappointments. I have a few of my own. I’m talking about the self-absorbed, holier-than-thou lefty [filter-unfriendly word] who are willing to hand control back over to the aforementioned power-mongering GOP, purely out of spite.
SRSLY people, let’s get a [filter-unfriendly word] grip. Change takes time. Given the challenges we face as a nation, now is most assuredly not the time for poutrage.
