Response to boston bean (Original post)

Wed May 15, 2019, 09:08 AM

12. I'm not interested in starting an argument here...

...but the whole "complacency" notion annoys the hell out of me. We have not been complacent. We have complied with the laws, protested, written to our lawmakers, campaigned, donated, got out the vote, voted, and challenged the results when suspect. We have NOT violated the law, elected those willing to, or made end runs around the Constitution to get our way.

I know you're mad and disgusted. We all are. But the "complacency" idea plays into the theme that Democrats are weak, scared, even lazy. Bullshit. We respect the law and respect our fellow citizens. We don't cheat. There is nothing weak, scared or lazy about respecting norms and respecting laws and the rights of others.

But I agree, there is a lot of work to be done. Let's get women into every fucking office we can from dog catcher to POTUS.
