A step back in time to see what we are fighting for.

As we open a new primary season today in Iowa, I decided to take a stroll back down nightmare lane. I found it to be a very sobering reminder on why we absolutely 100% MUST reclaim the presidency.

WE have got to get our collective heads out of our asses, get behind a candidate and get him the fuck out of there.

Strolling through those god awful post-mortem threads, and remembering how i felt after that election... sobering reminder for me of where the focus must be.

I don't know about you, but I sure as fuck don't want to be going through that period again... this time knowing 100% exactly what lies ahead..

It was kind of funny how some of those threads tried to rationalize how it may not be so bad.. I think we know better now.

1. I don't want to ever live through anything

 

like that again. I was shell-shocked for quite some time. As bad as things seemed at the time, it just got progressively worse. Yes, Trump was far worse than I could have ever imagined.

I suppose some people thought that saner, more experienced voices would prevail and control some of his impulsive behavior, but we all underestimated him and his ability to manipulate and intimidate people. I naively thought that there would be some republican members of congress who would push back on his decisions and maintain some semblance of order and dignity. Obviously I overestimated them.

There are still days that I wake up and have a hard time believing it is all real.
