Before I type another world let me say republicans could not have gained control of the Senate without the help of democrats who would rather lose than support a black man, or black people. As a matter of fact, that's kinda how we got into this mess in the first place. Remember when the Congressional Black Caucus tried in vain to contest the 2000 election results and not one white Senator would support them? I'm just saying...
Black folks were made to believe if they got out and voted in massive numbers like they did in 2008 and 2010, they could save the Senate. But it was a set up. Between gerrymandering, court sanctioned voter suppression, and Citizens United, black voters didn't stand a chance of saving the Senate. Black voters were being set up to take the blame. But that dog won't hunt.
It's not black voters fault white voters can't stand the idea of an African American male being President of the United States of America. The only African Americans republicans like are republican African Americans.
The person who could have saved the Senate is soon to be Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D.NV) who could have pulled the nuclear trigger on the filibuster, putting an end to the organized GOP obstruction, but that would have been too much like right. Pun intended.
We have to give the white, male dominated media their props too. Thanks to the dark (pun intended) money, republicans were able to fund an effective, methodical, truth-be-damned 24/7 media blitz. The public airways were filled with republicans, unfair and unbalanced, distorting what we decide, with all spin all the time.
So now that the Suckers have spoken, what are they going to do?
Are they going to start impeachment proceedings, or are they going to dismantle the Affordable Health Care Act?
Are they going to send our troops and treasure to war to spread freedom and democracy to the Middle East?
Are they going to shut down the IRS, the Department of Education, and the Energy Department?
Are they going to send all them there illegals back to Mexico?
Are they going to bring back Slavery?
Are they going to take away a woman's right to have a safe legal abortion?
Are they going to privatize social security?
Are they going to ship jobs overseas?
Are they going to let the banks fail and the stock market crash?
Or, are they going to work with the man and the party they ran against and govern?
Time will tell the truth.
