How can it possibly be about the money? The morally bankrupt GOP just saddled us with over a trillion dollars of debt to placate their Koch brothers masters. They're not worried about money. Money for health insurance for children, however, "Sorry, we just don't have it." That's what we need to vote out in November.

Republicans are sick people. Sick. Sad. Deplorable.They are going to end up with a situation they cannot effectively, graciously, harmlessly solve. The Democrats will vote them out, then implement healing. At what point in a Republican’s life does a Republican realize, all this, presently, is just damn wrong.

Well Republicans do excel at public piety ,bible waving , praising Jesus while ignoring the Gospel of Matthew ,but the function of the GOP since Hayes has been to protect and promote the wealth ,power and privilege of the rich, the holy grail of republicans.

WGT, your party will have to come up with a coherent platform first. THEN a candidate to articulate that platform well enough to unseat said Republicans.
Neither will happen.
