14. Just curious, how old are you? Because I've been voting for Dems for over 40 years,
and all I've seen is the Republican party growing bigger and stronger and more malignant and the Democratic party moving further and further to the right and growing weaker.

The moneyed powers behind the Republican party have taken more and more control of our country, and they are on roll with all the momentum behind them. They have the power to frame all of the political and economic and social debates in this country and the Dems have gone along with their framing for so long now that we old time Democrats can't even recognize our party anymore.

Wake up to what is really happening and stop expecting electoral politics to solve anything. It doesn't work, it hasn't worked, and it's going to continue to not work.
