Let’s talk about emails. Today, to start the new year off right, I had the bright idea of tackling my emails more vigorously. Mind you, during down time over the holidays, I had already fought my way through 7,000 of the 20k sum I had just sitting in my Inbox(es); but now, I Read More
I want Democrats to do so much better than they have done over the past 40 years. From what I’ve seen from the majority of Democrats is the willingness to fight against #Progressives and others who might be to the left of them. But that same energy does not exist in fights with Republicans.
They are more apt to try to prove their conservatism than to show a willingness to vote for progressive legislation for the American people. And then comes the handwringing.
If you learn nothing more, nor do anything else—leave Progressives alone. There is a reason I am no longer a Democrat or Republican. I am not a fan of the two-party modal. It is disturbing to see progressive candidates vilified. I’m also sad to see Progressives and Independents run as Democrats. Please stop. The primaries is technically your time to shine. Even if Republicans and Democrats don’t want to give you oxygen in their rooms, take it! Get online. Use all the social medias. Ask your supporters for a ‘post’ or a ‘re-post’ instead of just going for the cash.
What candidates want and need is traction. A re-blog or a re-post would both encourage the supporter to learn more about the candidate and show support for the candidate. Two years until the next election, use every second wisely.
For the record, some of these people in the Democratic Party lost their race in 2022 because people didn’t know where they stood. A Democratic Republican look-a-like isn’t worth electing for many.
To my #Progressive friends, let’s face it, not voting is not an option. And voting for #Republicans is opposite of everything we want. My solution is to keep pressing #Democrats to do better as we continue to try to add #Progressives and their allies to the Congressional ranks.
Other things we can do is start distinguishing to the mainstream media on every opportunity that you are not a Democrat. Be bold about your decision to be progressive and explain why it is important to have options other than Democrats and Republicans. And, although you may decide to vote for Democrats, until more progressive candidates can be elected, let your preferences be known.
The goal is to change the make-up of Congress… fewer non-progressive Democrats and way fewer Republicans. If we want better legislation, this will be necessary. It is always better to have liberties and not exercise them by choice, than be in a strict society where any perceived infraction will lead to imprisonment or some sort of punishment.
We have waited far too long for change, which on occasion looks like it is going to occur, only to be delayed until… next time.
Confession time. Literally, for several years now, I’ve dabbled with the website but have always placed my trust and confidence in trying other options as my main sources of income. They work for a while. But I always end up coming back here.
And, here is blogging, writing, podcasting, …creating… Restarts are a bitch. And yet, I find peace in letting out my thoughts and opinions.
So, for the umpteenth time, here we go! Anything and everything are going to be my topics, and I’m loving every minute of it. Join me. Support me. Tell your people about me. Let’s go.
Have you ever had someone tell you “Don’t take it personal”? My response is, How can I not?
You are personally talking to me. I am the one standing in front of you. I am the one you are addressing. So, if we are being real, I think it’s a cop out to say “Don’t take it personal”. Because, they probably don’t want to address what is coming as reciprocation.
I’ve heard the term used especially in business. As if, them, adding that little jewel of a phrase, is going to emotionally detach you. No, sir… It was me personally putting in the time, thought and effort into doing whatever it was that needed to be done, so I am personally invested.
As a matter of fact, it is my belief that everything we do is “personal” … that’s why when someone offends you, or says or does something that you don’t agree with, you want them to take “Personal Responsibility“.
So, please– speak your truth, but don’t try to patronize or belittle the situation by dismissing the personal. You said what you said, or did what you did… So now, just be prepared for the follow up.
Peace and blessings.
