After today I will no longer have to get up at 0300 to open the store. And, after today I will only have 2 more closings. Isn't life grand.
Not if you're a Republican, however.
You see, the country is Centrist, no matter how much they hate that word. They began lying to themselves years and years ago, when Reagan had the serendipitous re-election. We are not a conservative country. We are a Centrist country which leans either right or left. Like men in boxers, sometimes we dress to the left, and sometimes to the right. The GOP doesn't understand this. A popular president can move the country to either the left or the right. Reagan moved us a bit to the right, Clinton centered us again, W moved us a bit to the left with his failed policies, and Obama moved us a bit to the left. We are, taking all voters into consideration, Centrist.
An unpopular president will do the opposite. Look at Nixon, a president whom today we would call conservative... he moved the country to the left a bit. Now we have DT and the GOP and they, without understanding how the majority works, want to forcibly turn us to the right. We are comfortable dressing to the left. They want to reach in a grab us and shove us down the right side. Well, it ain't gonna work. Never has. No matter how much they hate the word, we are a democracy. And in their stupidity, they will moves even farther to the left. This is life.
