Candidates and Parties

I think my issue with all the parties and candidates that my fellow progressives claim will “save us” from this dark time is that the members talk big but don’t offer any explanation of how they’ll accomplish their promises. I had hope for Obama once when I was 16, but I had no idea about the hurdles he’d have to go through to “fix” things. Now that I do, if you don’t have a plan to jump those hurdles rather than just charge the track (which for Trump seems to be working), then why should I support you?

Then again, I feel like I’m in the minority who’s actually pragmatic and skeptical of my optimistic peers.
