“The Flight 93 Election”

by Susan Olsen

2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die. You may die anyway. You—or the leader of your party—may make it into the cockpit and not know how to fly or land the plane. There are no guarantees.

Except one: if you don’t try, death is certain. To compound the metaphor: a Hillary Clinton presidency is Russian Roulette with a semi-auto. With Trump, at least you can spin the cylinder and take your chances.

    OMG, its like I wrote it myself! Great find Susan, thank you. At least I know I’m not only one out there that understands the reasons that I keep saying this will be the ‘last election’ for a Western Civilized America. I cannot believe that more people are not able to see above their own petty grievances they hold against Trump and recognize the basic truth of the big picture.

      republicans and conservatives haven’t been “big picture” for a while. we have no long-term incremental game plan like the progressives do. we have a long list of all-or-nothing demands, but that’s a poor way to negotiate. we end up with nothing, and the progressive cause marches forward, legislation or not.

      5% of a cake, is better than no cake. and next time, you negotiate for 10% of the cake, and end up with another 5%. you now have 10%. and so on.

      this is exactly how we got into this mess, and it will be the only way out of it short of a civil war..which anyone who understands exactly what that means wants no part of except as last resort.
