The idea planted in our mind that the Democrats are going to wreck the economy with “free shit” now grows nothing but Kudzu that is smoothing everything. Here in the South one can see sections along the highway covered by this Kudzu where trees, even. houses are covered and turned into weird fantasy parks that remind of a 50s horror movie. Once thought to be a good ground cover, removed from its natural environment that kept in in check, Kudzu has no checks and balances. If don’t don’t keep moving it will bury you.
After the 60s, the Republicans held “spend, spend” liberalism in check, but where the liberals expanded the safety net, the Republicans began to shrink it, but the wealth they saved went to the cream at the top of the bottle. Unchecked, the shrinking began to cover the middle class like kudzu. Like The Avatar and the Voyage to Pandora said, The Mother (people) always comes to restore balance. The kudzu has found its check. Thanks Alabama.
The great Kudzu Madness of the Trump ground cover is that he makes madness normal. The lies grow so fast that we can’t keep up, so we shrug our shoulders and say Kudzu looks okay. We quickly forget what the landscape looked like before the Kudzu came. Like Kudzu, there are no natural checks and balances to this invading organism. It got planted because some thought it would prevent weeds from growing. The American Soil is balanced by the Constitution and a sense of decency and compromise.
Kudzu has only one desire, to cover everything so it is the only plant in sight. There is no compromise with Kudzu. Kudzu is not an American plant. It comes from Japan and there they eat it. Here it eats us.
