27. Nope

 

It's not that I want a pony. It's not that I demand purity. It's not that I insist on 100% agreement with all candidates or nominees.

But I'm flat out done enabling the Democratic party's rightward drift. I will always vote, but I've cast my last "Straight Dem ballot regardless of candidate".

I'm partly to blame for this mess by having done so for almost 30 years now. The party knows they can do any thing they fucking want and folks like me will still pull the lever for them simply because the other guy is worse. I'm done with that thinking.

And please spare me the lectures. I've given those lectures myself over the years. I know every word and every in and out of those lectures. But it's done. I'm done.
