I also want to thank my brothers in arms, the Brawler and Sir Zachary the Blue Knight and the Lady Gretchen for trying to show the poor choice Walker was. A special shout out for Ma Brawler, who was right all along--Walker is a weasel.
I know a lot of you, my dear people, are upset, angry and disappointed at the losses suffered to the dishonest campaigns of Walker and Gableman. That is a normal reaction. I fear too, that I felt despair. Not for me, but for all the good people that will suffer from these choices.
But, with the thanks of a good friend, I realized that this was but a minor skirmish in the grand scheme of things. It truly does make our quest more difficult, and much more labor intensive, but it comes nowhere near being impossible. We must simply carry on, and keep striving to bring justice, peace and liberty back to the country and to the world. One step at a time, good people, one step at a time.
Let the right caw like a bunch of carrion-eating crows. We are not dead, not even defeated. Tuesday was just a set back. Something that happens to people every day. There are still many good justices on the Supreme Court. There are many fine legislators in the state government. The County Board is still relatively intact. I had overheard that one supervisor just sighed, and said that it just means that have to keep working to prevent further damage to the County.
I agree. We just have to keep them honest (they hate that) and try to prevent any and all harm that they would otherwise try to wreak upon us. And upon those that depend on us.
I will leave off with a quote from a wise man, a good man. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:
"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant."
Who could argue with that?
Now, let's pick up the pieces and get ready. November's chill winds are already coming.
