LR the Liberal Redneck here, coming to you from a country that desperately needs to have every municipal water source in the nation tested for the Dumbassis Virus!

Never in my 69 years have I seen two political parties engaged in a presidential election who are fighting themselves more than the opposition. Bernie and Hillary basically want the same things, but they disagree on how to achieve them. I am amazed and grateful that Bernie has motivated younger voters to participate in the process, but so far that participation has not included voting and has included the petulant cry, “If Bernie doesn’t win, I’m not voting!” Hillary supporters have responded similarly in self defense. This is a scenario the Koch brothers would have paid a billion dollars to acquire and they got it for free.

The Republican candidates spend all of their time with personal attacks against each other and have yet to even remotely discuss the issues. Mainstream Republicans are so disenchanted with front runner Donald Trump, that they are turning on their own! Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said he would support Hillary over Donald!

This is a golden opportunity for Democrats to pull off a classic landslide victory similar to the one LBJ had against Barry Goldwater in 1964, if they can get their shit together and get every registered party member to vote!

The Senate and the House can both be re-claimed, if all Democrats put aside their differences and support the party the way they support their favorite candidate. Republicans are reeling. They are on the ropes. It is time to deliver the knockout punch! Do not let petty differences undermine the chance to take our government back from the 1% and focus on the needs of the 99%.
