Here is the message: Democrats, many Independents and disaffected Republicans are fed up with the current Trump administration, the do-nothing Republican Congress (except for lining the pockets of their big corporate donors) and to be fair Democrat congressional leadership who have been around too long and need to retire.
The pundits are right about one thing. The current occupant of the White House is a lightening rod of anger with most in The Resistance. There are not enough adjectives to describe this malignant cancer at the helm of our nation. Suffice to say that he is the epitome of narcissism, self-aggrandizement, and total incompetence.
If you or someone you know has ever considered running for office, this is the year. You don’t need the approval of the county party. While many of these folks have labored in the trenches for years and are decent people, continuing to field the same old candidates with the same old message will result in the same old results. Nothing will change. We need new people of all races, ethnicities, ages, progressive causes and lifestyle preferences who will bring fresh ideas on public policy and governance. People who have the energy, commitment and passion to communicate them to our constituencies.
