A lot of Americans spent 2017 bailing on the Republican Party

Apparently the Democrats had a similar problem with Barack Obama (because he's black). But then, historically more people identify as Democrat than Republican anyway... they just don't vote.

Here's where I spend my money

That's a good cause. I spend my money here. I've never donated to any candidate before, but she's an old friend of mine who's trying to turn a solidly red district around. The current rep, Dave Trott, reportedly worth over $177,000,000, has already decided against running in this climate. A few GOP slugs who hang around Michigan politics have entered the race, but they're obviously scared. Even though we're friends, I wouldn't be giving her any money if I didn't think she had a chance to win.
