About the Voters

It occurs to me that this election is about the voters, more than the candidates. The Republicans are now the party of conservative rich old white guys. The Democrats are the party of everyone else. If the party of the conservative rich old white guys wins, everyone else will be shut out, possibly even denied the vote. Seen that way, there's a clear and simple choice. We are fighting over the basic rights of citizens of a democracy, and while the major parties have moved closer together, their voters have not. In the voters, I think, the hope lies; not in the party leaders.
