LR the Liberal Redneck here, coming to you from a country that has taken the presidential election process to depths never before deemed possible.

On one hand you have the Bernie-bots and their undying belief that Hillary “stole” the election from them, because they can’t stand the idea that they were outsmarted. She couldn’t have possibly beaten their dear Bernie without “cheating”. But she did, and without cheating or stealing. Now they are trying to unite the “millions” of Bernie supporters behind Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Those “millions” currently have Jill polling at about 1% nationwide. Bernie has moved on for the good of the country. The bots should follow his example.

On the other hand you have the Trumpeteers. It is an extreme irony that the new base of the Republican Party wants to overthrow our black president and “Make America Great Again” since he is the only reason they have any kind of an existence. They fail to realize the very thing fueling their hatred, our unchecked income inequality, is the result of too many years of Republican control, and has absolutely nothing to do with illegal immigrants. When the KKK and other white nationalist groups say your candidate is one they can support, isn’t it time to say “What the Fuck”! The one thing possibly more offensive to them than a black president is a woman president. In their blind hatred, they have gone so far as to target homes with Hillary posters in the yard, by pouring bleach in the gas tanks of their cars and killing their pets. You would think that after all these years we would be better than that as a nation.

If you need more reasons to vote for the Blue Tsunami that will be sweeping our nation in November, remember this: Democrats WILL tax the piss out of the 1%, WILL raise the minimum wage to a livable wage, WILL guarantee anyone who wants it a decent education without crippling debt, WILL provide for our seniors and our veterans, WILL feed our hungry children and WILL NOT build a fucking wall.
