I will remind everyone not to get their hopes up. Democrats have lost elections that should have been no brainers for them to win. The Republicans might be able to rev up their supporters by badmouthing the opponents and fear mongering, but some of us aren’t that easily manipulated. The Dem candidates need to make a case why they’re the best for the job, not just less bad than the Republican. I want to know what that candidate is going to do to make voters’ lives better, not just make our lives worse more slowly than Republicans. This election needs to be about policies that will improve voters’ lives, not the same ol’ distractions. Your candidate doesn’t have to be pure as the driven snow to win my vote, but they have to be a whole lot better than the establishment status quo.
Also, before anyone tries to bully me into backing the status quo with the same tired out argument that I owe my vote to a Democrat who’s only slightly less terrible than the Republican, remember that I consider your argument to be part of why the Dems keep running candidates who barely lose in elections that should have been won in a land slide. YOU are part of the problem, not me.
