We Shall Continue Fighting the Republican Onslaught

without comments

Donald Trump is NOT Hitler or Mussolini. Republicans in Congress are NOT Nazi Storm Troopers. The Republican tax scam is NOT the blitz over London.

But the Republican tax scam IS an attack on most people in the United States who do not fall within the upper 10% on the income scale. It IS an enormous give-away to rich individuals and corporations. It IS an attack on the already fragile safety nets of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. It IS an attack on the small progress we have made on affordable health care. It IS an attack on our environment, especially the oil fields of Alaska. And it IS an attack against the possibility that the African proverb, “It takes a community to raise a child,” can become a reality in our country.

Therefore, for those of us in the Resistance, and because we may have lost a battle in this seemingly intractable radical conservative war, I take solace in the great words of former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, in portions of his now-famous speech delivered to the House of Commons on 4 June 1940:

“Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender….”

To my compassionate and tireless compatriots in struggle, we will ultimately turn back the onslaught.
