Thank you for convincing me that there are thoughtful former Republicans, and maybe even current Republicans. I may not agree with some of your positions, but I heartily agree that there is a process to debate and select alternatives. If we ever get through this epic 8-year long election season, I can only hope that persons of good intention will finally get down to actually working on solutions, instead of trying to score points.
I can assure you that the collection of neo-fascists that loose this election (oh, I surely hope so), and their confused followers, will torture the body-politic for at least 6–12 months about the “rigging of the election”.
At least the Democratic primaries had some (although limited) policy actions for a platform. Maybe that can be a nucleus for actually policy building?
Hope springs eternal, or democracy would not exist…
