It is a reflowering of the classical liberal, as opposed to a totalitarian, era.
Lots of s***-for-brains Socialists matriculating through the Public Schools and Universities.
Tyranny never, ever rests.
Not really liberal in the classic sense. The leftist propaganda era maybe.
“We are witnessing the end of the liberal era”
I hope so.
Spot on... when the republicans begin to grow a pair, and the 47% who vote for Santa Claus begin defecting I’ll believe we’re on to something...
End of the liberal - start of the insane, extreme, post-modern Marxist era.
Burn them off instead. :)
Yeah, don’t count your chickens.
If only Millenials had voted Hildebeast would have gotten 503 EV’s.
I expect them to seize control of the Dem Party and nominate someone at least as radical as Bernie.
A few of us go off to that Great Polling Booth in the Sky every day. This is a hearts-and-minds battle we have on our hands.
