17. Probably. It won't happen in the years that I have remaining...

... but it's likely to happen before what would be the "tri-centennial". That's why it's important for certain individuals (and groups, pundits, candidate spouses) to stop trying to sabotage and diminish the Democratic party. People like Sarandon, Yang, Nader, Turner, Moore, West, Stein (and many others) are doing their level best to split the vote, act as spoilers, and to kneecap and "punish" Democrats all in an attempt to fulfill their "burn-it-down" strategy and philosophy.

It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt". It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "feeble". It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "corrupt". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is the "party of Coastal Elites". It's NOT TRUE that there's "no difference between Democrats and Republicans." It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "do-nothings". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party "doesn't care about climate change." It's also NOT TRUE that the Democrats who "are very big into diversity" aren't "particularly sympathetic" to the working class. It's NOT TRUE that Democrats don't care about justice.

What useful purpose does it serve to promote this fiction? It's just another example of how people are oddly willing to do and say things that create an atmosphere of fear and hopelessness and negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.
