LR the Liberal Redneck here, coming to you from a country that is afraid. Very, very afraid. While fear is not usually a good thing, it is capable of providing some startling results. That is certainly the case with the fear currently pervading our country.

It has awakened a sleeping giant in the form of The Resistance. Americans from all walks of life, from every religious group, from every political party, from every ethnic group, from every geographic section of the country have used their common fear to unite and declare, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this shit anymore!”

The Resistance was started primarily by women who were outraged that the man who was crushed in the popular vote still managed to get into the White House. Their numbers have swelled because his subsequent actions have scared even those who originally supported him, and all that fear has created a level of activism rarely witnessed in the history of our nation.

Another motivation instrumental in fueling the passion of The Resistance is disgust. Disgust at the artificial class system created by the phenomenon known as, Income Inequality. It is outrageous that a small handful of individuals have the bulk of our nation’s wealth while so many are hungry, homeless and sick. Disgust that a nation of immigrants has a government at war with the same kind of people that created our nation.

The Resistance is also fueled by a common embarrassment that our country is being represented to the world in the form of an orange turd that is either mentally challenged or just a total fucking idiot who sold his soul to the Russians for fame and glory.

Fear, Disgust and Embarrassment have created a juggernaut that will no longer tolerate the status quo. Things are going to change because the people have had enough. They are seizing control and their demands will be met, one way or another!
