Dems and GOP are both rotten at the core

What this election has demonstrated to almost all of us is that the Republican party was rotten at the core.

I'm of the belief that the so-called "elites" of the GOP (some of whom I know) are generally rational, competent, open-minded people.  I know some will disagree with that, but that's my opinion.

So, what I've seen come about in this cycle is a Republican party that was like a piece of fruit that looked ok on the outside, but was full of maggots and rot on the inside.

It's got a nice chunk of anti-immigrant, racist, bigoted, closed-minded people.

That's definitely not something I want to consume and it's why I think Hillary will win.

However, here's my other concern.

The same rot has infected the Democratic party.

It may be one election cycle behind, but it's there, albeit in a different form.

The heavily Socialist economic policy and the BDS/anti-Israel philosophies are expanding at a rapid pace.  It defies my understanding why Israeli flags are burned at the DNC or why Black Lives Matter needs to state its alignment with BDS.

I have the same view of the so-called "elites" of the party (again, some of whom I know) as the GOP, but I fear that we are seeing a growing hatred and intolerance of another kind that the party leadership, like the Republicans, will not be able to control.
