I could not possibly agree more.

I’m from Ohio myself, from a working class, working-middle-class family. They mostly all voted for Trump because they bought his con. They believed he was working for them and had their interests at heart.

It seems so crazy, but what alternative do they have? The Democratic party is supposed to be the party of the working people. It’s supposed to stand up for them and champion them.

But it looks like the Democratic party has given up. They’ve bought the moderate idea that progressive values kill campaigns. They collude with other centrists who care more about technocratic policy than the lives of the majority of people whose votes they need.

A Democratic party allied with Kasich and people like him is already dead.
