I’ve written much about this. Yours is the best forensic summary on the internet because of its clarity and succinctness. I’m presently recording a song called “Doomed from the start.” It should drop as a Holly Nichole release before Summer 2017. Guess what it’s about ?
One thing you missed though — Bill Clinton.
I know Republicans and independents — Professionally and personally. They hate him, for right or wrong. They would have crawled a mile on broken glass to prevent him from ever getting into the WH again. That’s why it didn’t take a rocket scientist to see this clusterfuck coming from a mile away. I predicted it on Twitter in summer 2016. Thousands of of others did too.
Silver lining. Dems won’t runs corporate democrats / GOO lite in 2020. They will be forced to run a populist / progressive. Tulsi Gabbard is my pick because she mobilizes Bernie’s army. Only way they can ever win the electoral college making states again.
