It's a good read but it kills me that almost everybody misses the point that neither Democrats nor Republicans determine National Elections.  It's the 41% Independent voters that swing them and you barely hear anything because there is no formal Independent Party.  The silent majority and people like Stacey Abrams, smashing through Jim Crow laws, is what will rise up and choke states like Texas much the same way as they did Georgia.  More than one GOP Congressperson has admitted that if they don't turn to helping the common people, they are finished as a party.  Even big money doesn't get them all elected anymore.

Yeah, maybe. But much like Groucho Marx, "I refuse to be a part of any organization that would have me as a member."

That is a really good point, I hadn't thought of that. I have been an independent since Waco.  Fucking Clinton.
