We need to refocus our attention on the Republicans.

I realize during primary season we focus more on our own candidates, but I really wonder if we will ever be able to come back together as a party to win the election in the fall.

My focus will continue to be the Republican party and the terrible damage they will do if they have complete power. My Grandfather who was pretty active in Illinois politics in the day, always said that Democrats and Republicans will spend the same amount of money so it isn't about spending, it is about what they spend the money on, wars vs. people, the rich vs. the middle class and the poor, corporations vs. people. It is also the difference in who they work for, the rich or the rest of us.

I am sure I will be slammed for this, but after spending months reading the nasty stuff we are throwing at each other during the primary I can actually see a Republican in the White House. I just want to focus my attention on the big picture keeping those assholes out of the White House, the State House and the legislature.

2. Yes, that's kind of what a lot of us are getting at and very well said
