My dreams of rainbow colored unicorn farts.

I was raised in the eastern hills of Kentucky on a 200 acre generational family farm near a dinky little town not even most Kentucky people ever heard of. We just got a stop sign last year.

I have a LOT of wing nutz in my family. Some even believe Obama killed Scalia and plans to start up a war on our soil so he'll never have to leave office. Otherwise sane, functional human beings. Obama the big black boggieman will live on in infamy with some of the racist jerks in my family. Nothing said or done will convince them. Alex Jones is a prophet.

But - nearly all of them are disgusted with the Republican party. A good many now agree Bush lied us into war. They agree the corporations and wall street is a menace. They are sick of DC politics that reward investors and speculators and punish actual work. It's their biggest issue this time out. Not guns, not gays, not abortions. Even racism is secondary. It is all about the economics. Even the healthcare debate is all about the economics.

They mostly like Trump but some of them, astonishingly, are listening to Bernie. Undecided, but listening. Most are in the anyone but Hillary camp, but they don't seem to mind Bernie "the commie socialist" to quote my sister in law.

And so we get to my fantasies of rainbow colored unicorn farts. Where we actually end up with a Trump vs Bernie general election. Turnout shoots up to 80% of registered voters and the lines of cars waiting to find a parking spot at the polling place go for miles. No matter how you slice it, it puts DC on notice the American people are pissed as all get out. Bernie wins. America wins.

You may now laugh or flame as is your pleasure.

1. It does seem unlikely

 

But the Berlin Wall would never come down, either.

3. I also know R's who are listening to Bernie, and actually like him.

Bernie v Trump is not so far fetched in my view.

7. I'm not as surprised as you would think I'd be that they are open to Sanders and ABBC.

 

This is a clear trend with his support.

"Some even believe Obama killed Scalia and plans to start up a war on our soil so he'll never have to leave office."

"Obama the big black boggieman will live on in infamy with some of the racist jerks in my family."

"Alex Jones is a prophet."

8. Awesome post! * K&R * Thank you

 

One of the many things I love about Sanders is his ability to speak candidly, clearly,
and respectfully, even to people with whom he fiercely disagrees. Like how he spoke
at Liberty University. He's had lots and lots of practice, being in DC for decades
speaking the Truth to Power and fighting the corruption going on all around him.

He'll make a fantastic President, of ALL of We the People.

btw - I was born in KY, but moved to Oregon when I was 3. lol.

9. I love unicorns and rainbows.

In real life I have one of these on my desk at work:



I am prepared to go after and defeat Trump (or any other R) when the time comes.
