14. There are too many groups and people who want to topple the government

they are anarchists. Of course, except where their Medicare and Social Security payments are.

You say that the current Democratic Party is not the party of the future. Will neither is the Republican party.

We need a functioning government. Our lives are too enmeshed in it.

Yes, it would be nice to start from scratch, perhaps in 2017 and actually propose a real framework to make a functioning government of 321 million people.

But right now, I will take Hillary for the simple reason that she is our only hope for, at least, keeping the Supreme Court from further tilting to the right. We need her to preserve and, perhaps improve ACA. We need her to keep our sanity.

Yes, I know. We have our own faction of "staying on principles" by not voting and letting the other side win. We've seen it in 1968 when Humphrey was not anti war enough for many and we got Nixon.

So I appreciate many here who agree with you, but in the final analysis, we have to stop the Republicans at the gate.
