it is exhausting pretending to be interested in things other people are interested in. I am an alien in this place. Night. Rectify is a great show, by the way.
The biggest hindrance to our progress as a nation is not the Republican party. Its is willful political ignorance. The Republican told you that he would cut social welfare programs. He said he would not support equal pay for women. The Republican said he was against raising the minimum wage because it would kill jobs, even though this is not the case in progressive cities across the country. You knew this going in and you still voted for him. You say you are not into politics. Well, politics is into you. It digs you, so much that it affects the majority of your life. I don’t blame the Republicans for our sluggish economy, immigration crisis, or our collapsing infrastructure. I blame the ones who vote against their own interests. I blame the ones who won’t pick up a newspaper for five minutes. I blame the ones who claim that both sides are doing nothing. This false equivalency is maddening. One side shut down the government. One side is holding hearings against the IRS and complaining about their out of date computer systems while at the same time refusing to raise taxes on millionaires. One side refuses to deal with immigration and blames he president for acting unilaterally. I don’t believe the President wants to do the work of the entire federal government. The ones sitting on the sidelines not voting, are who I blame. The Republicans said exactly what they were going to do so I don’t blame them. They are what they are. You are to blame, the one who’s just not that into politics.
