So you are a Democrat then?
The Democrats return to original form ... rebels 1861, rebels 2017.
Yes, I was a true Red Democrat (irony in that nomenclatura) ... social progressive, fiscal/foreign policy conservative, from 1974. Wife (more liberal than I) and I got invited with others to the governor's mansion, for all we did for The Party (see Democrat Manifesto by Groucho Marx) back in 1988. Went all the way to the State Convention. Politics on the ground is dog work, particularly since we were just about the only Democrats in our precinct.
By 1974 ... it seemed that our long national nightmare was over, Nixon was out, and I could forgive Ford but my dad couldn't. By 1986 it seemed that the Evangelical nuts had taken over the Republican party ... so fewer cross over votes for me. By 1996 it seemed that the Clinton cancer was terminal, and the DNC had buried FDR forever ... and still have. So I stopped voting for awhile, since I don't have a time machine to go vote in another century. Well after awhile, we were in a new century, I resumed voting and Hopey Changey took my hope and stomped on it, just like Clinton did in 1994 (NAFTA). Dropped dynamic duo permanently in 2016 ... will never vote for either party again (on national ticket). Otherwise I vote against all incumbents. Stomp what cockroaches I can.
