We aren’t fucking there yet. I’m not going to say it can’t happen here. After Tuesday, who the hell knows what could happen so I do think it’s important to go forward with our eyes open.
That said, as of November 2016, we do not yet live in an autocracy. And to say that’s where we are 100% going feels like we’re surrending even more power to these people than they’ve claimed so far.
This is not about having blind faith in institutions to save us. It’s about saying I will fight like hell to preserve these institutions and I’m not willing to call them dead yet.
I want to take my country back from these assholes and I’m not yet willing to call that a dead dream.
