Suffragettes

One of the more irritating consequences of Pantsuit Nation’s loss early this month is, there’s been a lot of yucky badinage about us losers. “We won, dodohead,” is what I’m hearing. “Nyah nyah, eat my border wall, you stupid libtard.”

Well, uh, okay, thou dignified Emperors of Win. Here is what Alexander Hamilton had to say in 1775 about people like us snowflakes, idiots, SJWs, cucks, or whatever term of nasty art you may deem us so-called losers to be:

The origin of all civil government, justly established, must be a voluntary compact, between the rulers and the ruled; and must be liable to such limitations, as are necessary for the security of the absolute rights of the latter; for what original title can any man or set of men have, to govern others, except their own consent? To usurp dominion over a people, in their own despite, or to grasp at a more extensive power than they are willing to entrust, is to violate that law of nature, which gives every man a right to his personal liberty; and can, therefore, confer no obligation to obedience. –Alexander Hamilton, The Farmer Refuted, 1775

As Trump has so far grasped at a more extensive power than we are willing to entrust, he may soon have to face some civil disobedience. To the extent that he does a power grab, for example, to deport the “dreamers,” spend $25 billion on a xenophobic border wall, de-equalize our people, destroy our health via denial of health care and destruction of the environment, and keep whatever other hideous campaign promises that demonstrate provable inconsistency with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness by all Americans, he will certainly have to face more dire political consequences than a mostly courteous lecture to Pence at a really patriotic show.

Last I looked, we the people (all of us) hold these truths to be self evident…

That all men (all of us) are created equal. That they (we) are endowed with certain inalienable (even for aliens) rights. That these rights include Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness (check, check and check, new Administration, or you are in trouble).

If the so called winners don’t uphold these values, they may find themselves next time to be the recognized losers, and I pray that when they are in that position once again, we treat them as respected equals.

If ever they do decide to step up, though, everyone will be so very nice to them. Really. Part of being a libtard is knowing how to recognize any new ideas that are, um, good.

§ One Response to We, The Losers Of The United States Of America…

  • Ben says:

    Even before taking the oath of office the president-elect has taken aim at our First Amendment right to freedom of expression. “Apologize!” The Orange One demanded after a group of actors expressed their concerns to the veep-elect.

    In a follow-up tweet the prez-to-be did get at least one thing right: “The Theater must always be a safe and special place. The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to… Mike Pence. Apologize!”

    Our theaters are safe. Our theaters are special. Our theaters are safe and special exactly because for centuries our Constitution has upheld the right of theater companies—and artists, writers, the faithful, protestors, citizens of all kind—to assemble and petition, to address leadership and express their views, without fear of reprisal.
