33. Well, you're safe. We won't have the courts. But I'm fine with holding all 3.
Yeah, I'm fine with the Democratic party ruling all three branches. Why? Because the traditional Democratic and Republican parties are ALREADY REPRESENTED within our party. The Republicans have largely become the party of neo-conservative extremists who want to bomb the middle-east into a fascist strip mall and theocrats.
