The division

Warning post might be controversial and remember this is just my opinion so please be civil.

As a Bernie supporter and as an American I am very disappointed in this election. For the first time since the Reagan administration we now have a true progressive candidate running. Also sanders is the first candidate since Reagan to run his presidential campaign solely focused on the economy. He is also one of the few politicians that doesn't believe in that Reaganomics bullshit that both parties insist helps our economic. Imagine that a real candidate for progressive economic reform. Not no. Trump decided to make this an election about race. Fuck that white supremacist pig! Because for a while the democratic platform was about the economy. But Hillary saw an opportunity and stole some of Donald's platform of race. I'm not saying it on the same level by any means but the conversation of the entire election is about race and it's really pissing me off! We were actually talking about real issues until don became the racist candidate which Hillary in part then decided to change the conversation. We should not meet him with violence. We should show the world how crazy and intolerable his racism is! For the first time in the Democratic Party because of Hillary I have seen some racism coming from this party! We need to stop that shit! For the first time ever! I don't want to be a democrat!

Also it's ok to disagree with me or this post. I would love to hear different options with either view point.

1. Good rant but please break up that wall of text!

 

Paragraphs please.

I was motivated to wade in but it's hard enough to follow on a cell phone where the text is tiny.

7. We could have had it all

I'm very disappointed that we nominated the wrong candidate. There is nothing positive to say about Hillary.

8. I feel like both

Hillary and trump are bad choices. The anti semitism and anti welfare stuff I've seen lately is not ok. It's like a right wing site sometimes.
