27. It's a long story.

The Democratic Party - both state and national - has a lot to answer for. They dropped the ball.

There was corruption. The Koch Brothers saw an opening and took it.

We need help, and so far none is forthcoming. The DNC is ignoring the crisis as far as I can tell. The state party is in disarray. Our only strong leader is the head of the NC NAACP. I look to the Reverend William Barber to help lead us forward. He could use a little help. Where is the DNC?
