The elections of 2018: good news and bad news

The good news is that the dark side of the universe, the modern Republicans, have been pushed back and are limited in the new future damage they can do. The bad news is:

  • The deficit will swell. Their tax cuts will do terrible future damage in the next recession and beyond if not repealed.

  • Donald will still push to undermine environmental protections.

  • Donald is still tearing apart treaties that took years to put together with international cooperation.

  • Healthcare will be limited to the remnants of Obamacare. Deterioration will continue. Single payer will not get through the Senate and Donald’s veto.

  • The NRA will have it’s way on gun control.

  • Trump will continue to try to trash women, blacks and immigrants.

The struggle is far from over. It may never be over. We can stand before God and say we will fight the dark side forever if need be. Voting is not enough. Democrats and good private organizations like the Sierra Club, the Audubon Society etc need donations of our time and money to protect our sacred planet and throw more Republicans out especially Donald. 

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good people do nothing.
