Oh brother. The Democrats are trying to set us back another hundred years. Most Democrats are mentally ill and are thieves and liars. I hope the voters look through that and vote Republican. I wish we had another Party. The American Party. Neither the Democrats or Republicans give a rats about our country and the people. They’re just for power now. But the Republicans are a lot better all things considered!
