We can fantasize all we want.

If you can't sell your idea to red-blooded guns'n'god'n'nothin' else folks, it won't get off the ground.

We have our feet nailed to the ground by the combined spikes of Evangelical Christianity and every other flavor of Trump supporter.

Yes, but we are only beholden to them because they are scared and generally poor. If the money flowed in, and the medicine got cheap and doctors were abundant, and a food was cheap in the stores, and everyone could have a job they WANTED, rather than NEEDED... I expect they'd change their colors right quick.

That would require the blue team to change their tune, and they won't.
