1. this is the empathy ticket

...with two policy wonks running together. Both proficient in serving the people with intellect and innovation, not for politics sake, but to make a real difference in people's lives.

The contrast on the republican side is an on-brand, middle-school conservative who came to power on a corporate dime, cynically playing on social themes and hiding sins behind a piousness devoid of spirituality.

What Trump has accomplished is to strip the veneer of reasonableness and morality from what have always been cruel and heartless attempts by the right wing to take away hard fought-for protections and defenses Americans use to fend off republican corporate masters' chicanery and greed. It's gotten so bad that republicans have come to believe their nonsense about supporting smaller government, freedom, or democracy.

Trump called their bluff and took republicanism to it's logical conclusion: anti-American (as our population stands), isolationist, and fiscally irresponsible. The emperor has no clothes, and his court has stripped themselves bare as well.

All they know is hurt, how to take from Americans with one hand, and stuff taxpayer money into their pockets with the other. All they can do to support their avarice and greed is tear down and dismantle what they don't yet possess.

The contrast will be like a ray of sunshine illuminating a moldy wall.
