When legislators let you down, there is blowback. I don't fault any of the hard working, dedicated activists who have announced they're quitting. Hearts can only run on empty for so long. These people all have hearts that are so big... it's tough when the return is so rancid, as in the case of the Iraq funding vote.
The dems in the senate and the house who voted for the funding were cowards. Add the F word if you like, to more accurately understand my feelings on this.
But just because these spineless losers sold out their constituents doesn't mean we have to give up. It must galvanize us to work harder to make the changes that we need, because it's not just us. The world, the USA need us to save the future.
It's not going to go smoothly. Some will fall along the way. Some will fall and rest, then get up and get back in the fight.
So... don't give up, get even. Keep going There are more dragons to slay. We will prevail, but the price will be high.
