"Vote Blue, No Matter Who" What a resounding battle cry. Consider this about placebos:
“The mind can have a powerful influence on the body, and in some cases can even help the body heal. The mind can even sometimes trick you into believing that a fake treatment has real therapeutic results, a phenomenon that is known as the placebo effect. In some cases, placebos can exert an influence powerful enough to mimic the effects of real medical treatments.”
While there is some resistance to the concept of the placebo effect in certain medical quarters, I suspect there is enough empirical evidence to justify the placebo effect on the political level; that if we elect a certain person, things will get better, no matter what the candidate’s real history is.
Or… that the Party can be essentially bankrupt in every manner and still expect to win elections when the candidates are out of their own strongholds.
I see this with the Democrats; no matter who they offer up as candidates for whatever office at whatever level.
The destruction of the Democratic Party was seeded in 1973, with Roe v. Wade; abortionists killing decade after decade of future Democratic voters.
Even Hitler was not that illogical.
Kill your upcoming supporters?
Yet, Democrats cling to this group of pro-choice people who work like political parasites, destroying future generations of the Democratic Party.

It is mathematically illogical to expect the old Democratic Party to survive.
The Abortion Plank makes the old Democratic Party numerically unsustainable.
They must become socio-communists and destroy the US Constitution and the Electoral College for its current leaders to stay in power.
Amongst this internal chaos, Democrats look for someone that can put them back into power at all levels of government.
New York citizens elected Cuomo to Governor, only to have him slaughter nursing home residents.
But he may have, at least, killed old Republicans instead of unborn Democrats.
So this is the future of the Democratic Party; they look for someone who can lead a party that is destroying itself, trying to pump up their numbers through ballot harvesting, immigration, felon-qualifying, and buying votes from all they can.
And they are looking to placebos as leaders; people who give an illusion of competence while piloting a kamikaze plane.
The main reason they have succeeded as long as they have is the weakness in the Republican Camp.
I wish Winston Churchill were cloned and was the Republican leader in both houses. Things would be far different.
Too many Republicans in Congress got used to getting along with Democrats while Obama was in office.
These 'get-alongs' are as much of a curse to America as the Democrats in Congress.
Anyway, Democrats are looking for a placebo to run against the real thing, Donald J. Trump.
They can’t win honestly.
