10. All my representatives are Democrats.
County Commissioners, the county Sheriff, both members of the state legislature, my Governor, my US House rep, both US Senators, my President. All there is to do is ensure Democrats get re-elected.

I helped vote in my newest US member of Congress, Senator Manchin. He is the worst DINO in the Senate. I supported him only because his Republican opponent is worse. There is no chance that he would be defeated in the Primary when he runs for re-election. Same thing with Obama. The Republicans are worse, that's about the best reason I can come up with to vote for him.

My point is, today's elected Democrats are not that much better than Republicans and I don't see anybody better waiting in the wings. And so I have engaged in this self reflection - which does not go to say that this is a GBCW post. It's nothing like that. I've had a lot of fun at DU and I've learned a lot but I'm thinking I've wasted a lot of time too.

Thanks for the kind words of encouragement all the same.
