73. Yeah, I do.

 

The question is, do YOU?

oh boohoo Ds didn't vote in the midterms...WHY didn't they vote in the midterms? maybe they did not vote because they didn't feel they got what they voted for. Ever consider that idea? If not, why not?

Speaking for myself only, I was wildly enthusiastic in 2008, long before the definitive financial meltdown in September (clearly it was tanking before then). I wanted our government to stand up for ME: I wanted it to enact laws that benefited ME, that reined in banksters who tanked the global economy while playing with our money in a virtual casino; I wanted it to enact laws that targeted in the greedy and immoral pigs in the health insurance industry and put those assholes on the road to oblivion; I wanted it to condemn the fuckers who started an illegal and pointless war based on lies, ego and greed, that did NOTHING for our national security, that resulted in the deaths of uncounted innocents, that fucking tortured people in my name.

I didn't get any of those things. I got a president--an exemplary human being btw, but one who apparently thought he could heal all the rifts, all the ills, all the evils on this country just by being a good man. He was wrong. "Looking forward and not back" was a disaster. Protecting the banks was a disaster. Protecting the insurance companies was a disaster. Protecting war criminals was a disaster. And look where it got us. Not just in 2010; in 2012 (even though the exemplary human being won again), in 2014, in 2016 too.

In 2018 we finally began to address the damage and to recoup our losses over the last decade. Finally--but it is only the beginning. We have a LONG way to go to make good the losses of the last 40-ish years...and sorry, but returning to the Obama years will not be enough.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren
