what pulling on plastic has led me to.

There comes a time in everyone’s life where they must stand up for what they believe in. This recent election cycle has brought about a great schism in America. Progressive vs conservative; a small fraction of conservatives has America by the balls. The house, the senate, congress and the presidential oval office are all held by money grubbing, oil burning, capitalism endorsing republicans who want to drill on public lands, sell off the public’s trust and destroy what progressive America wants to be.
