17. Look, I'm not going to debate this with you -- but no one is more weary of slogans than I.

I would have personally picked up everyone I knew who wasn't going to the polls and driven them there, I would have asked friends and family if they knew of anyone who needed a ride. I would have gone to my local Indivisible pages and offered to shuttle --I would have done what I PERSONALLY could have hands on done. I would not have just said "well, it's not ours". I LITERALLY meant whatever it takes, and I would have PERSONALLY done what ever it took to try to make a difference.

And I'm so tired of this shit.. "a district that hasn't voted for a Democratic candidate in 40 years " The country wasn't ready for a Black guy as POTUS, remember? The country would NEVER vote for a mentally ill madman, remember? I don't buy the status quo but if you want to wrap yourself in it, feel free.

And don't tell me I'm just using a slogan -- that's what I took a several year hiatus from DU -- just more of the same, very little action. And I'm about ready to bid adieu again -- we won't miss each other. I'm right/you're wrong or vice versa, or we can all pat each other on the back.

Nice chatting with you and better luck to us next time.
