I work with Democrats all the time. I have no choice. The city I live in is governed exclusively by Ds. It’s been that way since 2006. In that time, the d-party has presided over a rather sad gentrification of formerly working class, mixed-race neighborhoods, including mine, pricing people like me out. Real estate developers own the place. So, while I work with dems to battle developers, I don’t vote for them.
If you want to stop the slams against the d-party, you might want to hope, wish, and pray that they desist from drumming up hope for change while moving ever rightward. We ran out of time for that stuff long ago – the climate crisis is a lot more urgent than incremental half measures can address. That’s partly what I referred to when I threw out the term ‘status quo.’ That won’t cut it.
At any rate, I appreciate reading your thoughtful comments.
