33. Split Party

So, there WAS no other outcome.NEWS FLASH: Global money power rules. Real world. No "elected" official can buck them and survive to do further positive work. It is all a trade off. Always has been. To suggest progressives should "leave the party" is just what the Right Wings wants (again)... It is always a trade off. It is like that piece of pie on the floor Homer Simpson wants to eat. We all knew this was coming. Don't bite. Chill. We do not live in a representative democrazy. We live in a Global Economy.

We had no power to change this. Accept the Things we Cannot Change. And continue on to change things we CAN. Taking our ball and going home to self destruct does nothing positive for anyone.
Tantrums do not work. They self destruct us and steal what little power we have. Which is just what they are intended to do.
I am not biting.

I do not argue. Or bicker or bitch. Or get caught in the little fights we have here that are scripts from "reality" Tv. I DO NOT "debate". I have grand kids of color on the streets. That comes first. I will not be distracted in any way.

So... here we are.
One thing age gives us is staying power.
And cold acceptance of What Is. UNITY works. Fighting and bickering does not. WE are facing down the biggest human economic power in the world. All that they want is not healthy for us. Yes I see that. But that will not stop me from my focus which has the ability to change it all. I "KEEP MY EYES ON THE PRIZE".

I am not naive.
I am street smart. We are fighting an Organized Crime Model here.
So splitting our Unity plays into their hands. Have none of you studied Organized Crime History?

There are two kinds of being pissed off.
One is ego based from feeling "powerless". Enraged by it. That is a trap. That is frustration born of fear and an urgency to "do something" even if it is self destructive. It alienates us from our focus. It destroys our UNITY. It pisses our power and energy away.

The other kind is accepting what we can't change and keep going.
I will vote for who ever is nominated by the Party. It is our only real world shot to push things forward for our kids and grand kids.
It isn't perfect. It isn't all we want. I accept that. It isn't about ME.

Change is made ever so slowly. It is made by iron determination to not be distracted, to not breaking apart, to keep going.
Even murder, lynchings, all manner of corruption can not stop this.
The only thing that stops it is hissy fits because it is not exactly what our rage, ego and fears want. I can't afford that anymore.
For me it is truly Life and Death for the kids on the street.

This endures through generations. We are in this for the long haul.
So at 70 I do not piss away my energy and strength on arguing.
Or self destructing. I do not do "floor pie".
I LOVE Bernie. He is saying everything we want to hear. Everything we hope for.

I do not believe he will be allowed to be elected. I do not believe we have a representative democracy. I do not believe elections are clean or work. I believe they are shows, they are a dance done to keep the traditional beliefs in place. To keep business going globally. To keep domestic populations feeling they have a sense of "control".

I believe Civil Rights/Human Rights are needed by this global economy and those who resist this will be and are being crushed.
The old anachronistic ways of the past that get in the way of business ARE being slowly phased out. I do not feel this way of running a planet is healthy or good. But first things first.

The truth is we don't have much control. And getting us to self destruct and de-power ourselves is a functional tool. Like, arguing and debating I don't do that. I just keep going quietly and in a focused way. Like Gandhi. But with a irreverent sense of humor.
I will vote for who ever the Party nominates.
