57. Learn from democratic history which years we won, and which years we didn't

 

(and won means a SITTING PRESIDENT, not a theoretical win but not seated one, which in essence moved the causes back 100 fold.)

The jettising of LBJ, the jettising of Carter said it all.
(Same as the jettising of Al Gore after 2000 and Al's jettising of Bill Clinton during 2000, the jettising by Al Gore of Mike Dukakis indirectly), the jettising of Howard Dean, and the backbiting and jettising of John Kerry after he took over for Al Gore and Howard Dean.

and the realization, as Spielberg's Lincoln showed as to how America moves forward.

When it does, it ain't pretty, and it ain't perfect but its better than holier than thou losing and going backward like happened in 1968, 1980, 1984, 1988, 2000 and 2004.

Politics is ugly, but ugly is beautiful when it's done correctly.

everything I write is imho of course.
