The Spell Is Broken

Bullying can work for a time, as we’ve seen with both the NRA and Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform.  But eventually the very rigidity and absolutism that give you so much power become a liability, and those who were cowed into submission by your irrational demands turn on you.  At first, just a few, and then the numbers swell, and your days of stealing lunch money are over.

The ballots of November 6  and the bullets of December 14 finally, finally ended these two interconnected (Grover sits on the NRA’s Board) reigns of terror.

Fairer tax laws and firmer gun laws are coming.  Neither the NRA nor Grover will ever have so much power again.  The spell has been broken.  The lost children of Newtown understood that once a spell is broken, you are free, and you see the world as it really is.
