  •  It isn't enough to have Hillary... (3+ / 0-)

    While I am a Hillary voter, I don't think that will really change the dynamic all that much. We have a good President with Obama and the lengths the GOP will go to dismantle his power to make change is ridiculous. Put Hillary in there in three years and I still see more of the same. This isn't to say I want us to give up on anything. I just think besides having our chosen candidate we need a better plan on changing the reality the GOP are living in.

    These conservative politicians need to have their reality bubbles destroyed utterly.

    Take down FOX News as "news outlet". Have the FCC pull their name as it is false advertising and their programming as literally "lies" given false airs as "news".

    Remove the big money influence from Citizen's United and take individuals to court to publicly display this level of greed and avarice that is controlling our system.

    Call out Congressmen that LIE in Congress or in front of the press. Campaigning is one thing. But obvious lies should be dragged out into the public square and flogged so they don't get thought of as truth ever again. We as a society accept these lies and it is distorting our reality greatly. We cannot have a representative that isn't grounded in the true facts debating and discussing real world issues in Congress.

      Hillary is the closest thing we have to a sure win.

      A sure 8 years following the current 8 years will be impossible for the Repubs to dismantle, assuming we're able win some midterms and statehouses and undo the gerimanders.

      Remember: At this same time the Dems are sitting in the White House, demographics will be pushing the population to the left.
