in 2020 Especially with drumphf in office!
Around early June with the x anniversary of losing RFK
that much more painful I had to find a more active liberal political site.

Somehow I remembered DU which I only looked at briefly here and there in the 1st, or 2nd year they launched, at a Net Cafe. Without a computer & internet at home I forgot about it .
And there about 19 yrs years later - there it was!

Humphrey was your first vote? As in real vote, or if I was old enough to vote. I turned 18 in '71 - my first vote as part of the first wave of 18, 19 & 20 yr olds.
