Response to ismnotwasm (Reply #30)

Fri Dec 30, 2016, 03:33 PM

33. Thanks.

I have family, friends, and associates who are politically active, but not registered with the Democratic Party. Most of them were excited with Sanders' run, though in our state, they could not participate in the primary.

A few years back, in a "local" incident that received national and international attention, a Town Supervisor -- from a mutant tea party group -- attacked a tiny Sufi settlement. In response, area people put minor differences behind them, and joined together to elect the first democratic majority in the town's history. This included Democrats, Greens, Independents, and republicans, joining together.

I'm not sure that same coalition of voters could have been created, without the toxic threat of the mutant. Yet, it would seem to be equally important, if only to prevent diseased minds from winning office.
