Democrats pulled us out of the Great Recession that W got us into, brought 100,000 soldiers fighting in far off lands home, and passed a law that guaranteed every person in this country has a right to health coverage.
I want single-payer more than anything else in this world (I'll remind everyone that was my college thesis project), but Obamacare is a shit ton better than what we had before. People seem to forget that.
So I understand that it's easy to be discouraged, but John Kasich is not the "moderate" knight in shining armor that will save our country.
"Democrats fall in love while Republicans fall in line." It's cliche as hell, but it's also true. I guarantee you there were plenty of Donald voters who hated that they voted for Donald, but they hated the idea of a Democrat being President even more. On the other hand, many Bernie supporters decided that a vote for Jill Stein was the better option.
That's what drives me nuts about ideologically pure so called liberals. They let the perfect be the enemy of the good every single time and then blame everyone but themselves when the shit hits the fan.
*Update* - I was in no way trying to accuse you of being an ideologically pure so called liberal. I should have been more clear that I was upset with Bernie/Stein voters and not you.
