Sorry Dennis -- but I've already thrown in my lot with the "FASCISM IS
COMING, THE WORLD IS BURNING" crew ---- I know that this is a (miniscule?)
minority position on this list ---

I know that the majority of people here do not accept the analogy to the
refusal of Communists and Socialists to make common cause against Hitler
--- but that is the (heretical?) reason why I am "toadying" for a worthless
party ---

So that is why even a horrible corporate democrat is to be preferred to
Trump ---

That person would owe his/her presidency to the energized youth and people
of color --- and unlike Obama will have to deliver in order to get
re-elected --

Lessons learned by the disappointments of the Obama administration MIGHT
actually lead to an upsurge in activism that will keep the ball rolling ---

We know what we'll get with Trump -- more judges, more support for
polluters and fossil fuels, more validating racism and xenophobia --- the
planet may already be too far gone but it will DEFINITELY be with four more
years of Trump ....

Therefore, I think almost any Dem alternative would be qualitatively better
than Trump ---

But you're probably right --- such sentiments are probably not very useful
on a Marxist discussion list ---
