The Republican Party is Dead on Arrival..thanks in part to the Orange reality TV star, Mitch McConnell, all of their associates, the Cult following masses of sheeple who continue to show up for the rally's, and anyone else Stupid enough to vote for this idiot a second time.
Pretty much agree with this. The GOP has been a steaming pile of feces since W., and they stink worse and worse every year.
So why has the Democratic Party failed to step up to the plate? Obama wasn't actively bad but he wasn't that good, either. Hillary was a fucking fiasco.
How about this novel idea - the Democrats champion some positive reforms to fix what's broken in this country. Starting with health care. ACA might have been a convenient placeholder, but it's time to get serious about covering 100% of Americans and protecting people from medical bills that force them into bankruptcy.
Promising to give away free college and free houses to everyone just plays to the far left. Let's get practical and deal with the serious issues like healthcare, non fossil fuel energy, and perhaps try to make an effort to reduce the annual deficits and not spend money like it grows on trees. Both parties have been criminally irresponsible with our budget and it will bite us in the ass if we don't get our spending under control.
Most importantly, close the loopholes that allow rich individuals and big corporations to avoid paying taxes.
Democrats have a golden opportunity to win the White House in 2020 and perhaps control both House and Senate. If they piss this away again, they're really no better than the Republicans.
