This is an exercise in reasoning.
In the same fashion, we can say, “Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 Election, in part, because millions of voters weren’t motivated to vote at all. They were loathe to elect her.”
And: “American Intelligence officials have confirmed that they have proof that Russia interfered with the Election of 2016 and that they had a clear favorite -Donald Trump. Senators from both sides of the aisles are alarmed by these findings.”
It can be true that Hillary Clinton lost because people weren’t motivated enough to get out and vote for her.
The two things can be true and be totally independent of each other.
The fight is no longer about GOP and Dems. It is no longer about Trump and Hillary.
It is about Russia and the US.
If you want to still be around to enjoy those Georgia peaches this summer while thinking about the snows of Oregon, you best be sure of who side you really are on – Russia or the US?
Because as long as you keep acting like you can only hold one truth in your head at a time, you will likely never see what’s coming.
“There I was, Bertha, in my kitchen peeling onions, thinking about how good it felt to see all those young girls crying, when the doorbell rang. I wasn’t expecting nobody. I never seen it coming. I thought it might be the UPS man, it being the holidays and all. So I was looking down when I opened the door. All I saw were six pair of shiny black boots. They didn’t even give me time to turn off the stove, grab a coat or kennel the dog. They took me away right then. I never saw it coming.”
“Me, neither,” Bertha said, shaking her bald head. “I wish I’d paid closer attention. All this time I thought Trump was the one I had to worry about.”
“Yeah, I know what you mean. And I thought it was Hillary. Turns out we was both wrong, Bertha.”
“Scooch over here a little closer, would you, Sugah? I hate the cold worse than I hate the starvation.”
“Will you sing to me again if I do?”
“America, America, God shed his grace on thee and crowned thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea…”
Call or Write your Legislators and tell them you want a full bi-partisan inquiry into Russia’s interference of the 2016 Election. Do it. For all our sakes. This is our country.
