Listen to any conservative on TV, the radio, or your old man, and they’re likely to say something like, “The fact is that we need someone to shake things up in D.C. ’cause the status quo is not working and both parties are to blame for the status of the world.”
Or they say, “We need to go back to the old ways when everything was peachy. Tradition! Conservation!”
Let’s go back to the Roman days when democracy was born. Let’s adopt their gods, their plumbing, their science and their sexual freedoms!
Oh wait, you want to go back to the early American days, when women were crapped on. Minorities were shit on, and there wasn’t freedom of information that we enjoy now.
And why go back? It’s like the conservatives are all meathead, high school glory day dorks getting older. They’re collectively hoping to get back to when their bodies were taut, their wives were one hot chick among their girlfriends and their innocence of life was naive. Or they are women who are fighting to keep their dirty secrets … secret.
Why do glory day-minded folks want to go back? Because they LOVED those times and hate what the future means … which amounts to nothing more than death.
We can’t have gays marry … because they couldn’t marry when I was young! Ahhh, GLORY DAYS!!!
We can’t allow women to be free to choose … because they had little choice when I was little! Ahhh, GLORY DAYS!!!
We can’t allow freedom of religions in the US … because all I knew were Christians growing up! GLORY!!!!
Don’t tell me to go back. Don’t tell the future that they have to adopt old ways. They want NEW ways. We need progress. Progress means I can have the science of the future. And you and your children can too.
It’s most important to fight for the future with embrace of the present and with the past in the back of the mind.
I say put it in the colon and shit it out. Flush it and forget it … forget it just like all those glory day lovers forgot that the olden days weren’t that great.
