I'm a Democrat...

And I am so relieved that there are sane Republican thinkers who can see what a horrible leader Trump is. I hope they can get the word out to their party and straighten things out.

Everyone needs to listen to this!

I, for one, have always chosen to vote for who I think would do the least harm. Democrat, Republican, that never mattered to me in the past and to an extent it still doesn’t. This podcast shines a light on a very real problem in this country. Republicans against Trump is huge and they need to be heard. When many people turn against their own political incumbent, there must be a reason. These people are not celebrities or random Twitter users voicing their opinion. They are Republicans who have been loyal supporters of that party for 30+ years and now they are sounding the alarm about this political candidate for the Republican Party. That alone speaks volumes. Listen to what these well educated, well spoken, intelligent people have to say. As a voter, it is your responsibility to review ALL information and make your determination based on facts. Not just to follow along and vote Democrat or Republican because that’s what you’ve always done. Now more than ever, people need to see this from all sides and make an informed decision. This is a much needed format to reach millions of people who will be deciding the fate of our country in November. Please listen and bring an open mind.
