The motion of history waits for no one. As time moves on, what will become of the ultra-right wing members and supporters of the Republican Party, who are now being dragged, kicking and screaming, into the rest of this century?

Many of them will whine and mourn the loss of unearned, and therefore unfair advantage, as did most Southern Democrats, (they called them Dixiecrats) and other backward folks lament the end of slavery, the smashing of the Confederacy, the death of Ol’ Jeff Davis, Reconstruction, women winning the right to vote, the gains made by the modern civil rights and labor movements and the numerous successful international movements for independence and national liberation, etc.

But eventually, most of them, after a period of stiff resistance, will ride the multi-hued, multi-polar train of world realignment into a more democratic future. As their numbers dwindle, nearing the end of empire, they will find themselves faced with the choice of either riding on that train, as fellow travelers, with no special privileges or packed into a tiny RICH WHITE MEN ONLY caboose, tended to by a handful of battered Nazi porters humming Wagner, as they cross over the River Jordan; angry, bitter, sentimental and unreconstructed
