A better platform

Liberals and moderates are in trouble. They have almost nobody recognizable to run at the national level. It’s time they revisited their platforms and started being serious about compromise and their country.  It’s also time to put the DNC back in the hands of its members and get rid of… Continue reading

Running for the Republicans
