Ted Cruz has as much of a chance at winning the Presidency as Liberty University’s founder Jerry Falwell does in having a snowball fight where he currently is but anyone who knows anything about Republicans knows that to them, reality is just a liberal/socialist/anti-colonial plot.

In the end, no one can maintain their power because of the inverse property of power, every action creates an equal and opposite reaction. And that is our eternal job as the majority of human beings on this planet, to be that equal and opposite reaction to those who accumulate power and use it to gratify themselves at the expense of the lives and well being of others.

It is one thing to be a black man and fear the police but it is another more intimidating thing to see the justice system protect and insulate the police from any harm when they murder unarmed black men.
