20. There's a great quote

from Senator Eugene McCarthy, from about 1965, in which he compares republicans to bacteria: there's not a lot of life to be found in them, yet they are very difficult to kill.

The republicans have mutated over the years since, of course, and pose an even greater threat to the health and well-being of our country. In order to combat that threat, we need to change the tactics that we have been using in recent years.

(On a personal note, while I appreciate you kindness, I am fully aware that I'm not a "leader." Not a follower, either. I try to think for myself, which is what everyone should do.)
