Choose: Dystopian Hellscape or Powerful National Facing Real Problems

Conservatives have always played the politics of fear and hatred.   
Even Especially Ronald Reagan, who announced his candidacy for the presidency and promised to restore "states' rights" while standing not 3 miles from the spot where "defenders of states' rights" murdered three civil rights workers not 15 years earlier.  Reagan, who rode the lies of "welfare queen" and "buying vodka with food stamps" to victory.
Which side are you on? 
Republican America is a dystopian hellscape in which evil, violent foreigners are trying to kill us in our beds while rapacious jackbooted government thugs try to wrestle our guns from our cold, dead fingers and Planned Parenthood sociopaths are committing mayhem on children and selling the body parts. And that’s just for starters.
Democratic America is a very powerful nation struggling with a declining middle class and economic insecurity at the hands of the ultra-rich, requiring some energetic government intervention to mitigate income inequality, solve the looming crisis of climate change and manage global crises without plunging the nation into more wars. They also must hold off that anarchistic opposition which sees the world as a dystopian hellscape and that may be the greatest challenge of all.
