How many liberals do you expect to find in the GOP?Yes, he's incompetent and bigoted. Yes, impeachment is now virtually inevitable. Yes, it is great fun to kick a bigot.
But.....the people running around saying "See! We should have elected Hillary!" are as wrong as it is humanely possible to be.
Domestically, we need a progressive POTUS who will really protect the poor, revive the middle class and restrain the 0.01% to a reasonable degree. (Probably not Bernie. 81 is an unreasonable age for a POTUS, IMO.)
Maybe Warren, but the problem there is, although she's a math and economics genius, I can't recall her every demonstrating any proficiency in justice or social issues.
But no matter. Stop saying "We need to save Obamacare!" No, we are hideously injured by Obamacare. We need universal care.
We need a POTUS who will attack our stupid drug laws and dismantle the prison industrial complex. We KNOW that is not Hillary, as she is the main architect of it. No Democrat of her corporatist type is at all acceptable.
Trump refocused attention on the HUGE pockets of poverty and despair in this country. The Rust Belt. Appalachia. Etc. We need a POTUS who will carry out his trade agenda. Or something very near to it -- not another TPP proponent.
So, as we throw the baby out with the bathwater, can we please exercise some care not to kill the middle class and bring about a Depression that never ends?
We need REAL liberals. And the one place we know they won't be found is the Democratic party.
