Response to Lodestar (Original post)

Sun May 1, 2016, 12:43 PM

22. A Star Load from Lodestar - from a Baby Boomer....

I totally agree, I'm 70 years old & have watched the Democratic Party go further and further toward the ring wing agenda.
It all comes down to power & money versus the needs of ordinary people.
All you older folks must support the Millennials and the fight for what's right, You stand to lose a lot also, look for example, at how desirable all that Social Security money must look to Plutocrats - they would love to get their hands on it.
Also what we're doing to other countries and the environment is a crime & must be stopped.
I traveled around the world for 20 years, staying in various countries for 3 months to 2 years. Some were Communist, some were Socialist leaning. I can tell you that the people of those countries have been very warm, friendly and helpful. They actually like Americans & want to be friends. The more socialistic country citizens are for the most part happy with their medical care, educational opportunities, etc.
But they despise the US Government's actions, whom they consider to be the world's worse terrorists - they're right.
I at one time was going to help put the first woman in the White House - fortunately a friend, an 80 year old woman who had worked with HRC strongly advised me to read all I could about her before voting. I did and as a result of that I can't in good conscious ever vote for her.
Of course I can't vote for anyone in the GOP either. We really need a complete new party, the old ones are worthless and corrupt.
None of this has happened by accident, rather it is a result of the decisions made by the politicians.

Also to vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil and things will stay the same or get worse - unless we stop them.
I'll write in Bernie... or go Green.

Cliff
