A losing battle

Shell BeachSeptember 17, 2013 

The world is getting darker, more educated and more tolerant, and this state of affairs works against one of the political parties in power in this country today.

Politicians representing this party have been fighting the change with three effective tools:

1. Spinning lies

2. Trolling (to get attention)

3. Refusing to govern

They might win some battles, but they are destined to lose the war. Time, demographics, and education are against them. You cannot live in the 21st century and think and act as if you were living in the Middle Ages.
