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.
