Buck Up, Democrats: It’s Time to Fight

Since I began paying attention about 15 years ago, I have been continually dismayed by the lack of fight shown by the Democrats over and over. Whether confirming Alito, a man completely lacking in compassion and any kind of concern for his fellow human beings, to letting the Republicans steal a Supreme Court nominee, the Democrats are, as Harry Reid said many times, continually “keeping their powder dry” and “taking the high road” for “the good of the country.”

How’s our country doing now, Dems?

The American people have shown with their votes that they much prefer fighters, even if they are fighting to take things away from them, than navel gazers. So let’s fight!!! Fight every inappropriate nominee. Fight every crazy appointment Trump has made, and most are crazy. Stop waiting for that “really important issue” to fight for. Fight everything!!! Especially fight against Trump getting ANY nominee into the Supreme Court. The Republicans said ahead of time that they would block ANY of Hillary’s nominees if she won. Turnaround is fair play. Block any nominee, take those gloves off, take that dry powder out, and FIGHT!! Cause every time the Democrats try to be “principled” or “go high,” the Republicans kick us right in the teeth. Enough.
