I didn't think we were here to fix things.
The way to fix things is to fight for solutions. To fight for better candidates. To fight for better policy. The continued belief that Democrats will actually fix anything has worn thin. Their rhetoric implies they will, their actions imply they won't.
Republicans believe that it is not the governments job to fix anything.
Democrats believe that it is the government's job to fix everything.
I'm not trying to fix politics. I'm with Bucky:
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.”
Fingers crossed - maybe folks will like the new model enough to get on board. It surely does take a lot of organizing, though...
