Democrats, I ask that you read Rick's thread. He offers advice to Democrats that we desperately need to hear.
Unlike, for instance, Bernie, Rick actually wants to see sane Democrats take over the government, for the short term at least.
2. Rick and I disagree strongly about how a government should go about governing, but we agree that a democratic republic is the proper form for arriving at the answer.
Right now today we do not have one. Rick knows that it will take a Blue Wave to save his party, and he's ready.
3. It will also take a blue wave to save the republic. Several years of them.
Observing the voices and words reported in the media to be coming from Democrats, I am not confident.
I have a couple threads and an essay. I beg you: Paint the big picture.
4. Don't run down fifty different rabbit holes. Paint One. Big. Usable. Picture.
I lay it out in my pinned tweet. Here:
5. I believe that, besides the big picture I recommend above, we should be courageous, and take on the biggest threat facing humankind face on. I don't think, "almost like always, with adjustments" will fix one damn thing.…
6. Rick wrote many of the ads that carried America from Ronald Reagan to [name deleted]. Ignore him at your peril.
We absolutely must present one united front and one understandable, big picture message.
We quite decades ago.
It's a losing proposition.
7, Before you start telling me about gerrymandering and voter suppression or suppositories or whatever:
We had to lose about a zillion elections to give them the power to do all that to us.
Thirty-some states.
You know those red states you talk about?
The didnt' used to be.
8, We've got a helluva lot of work to do. Arguing with each other and campaigning against each other is an absolute guaranteed way to lose.
Personally, I'm not very optimistic but I'd love to be proven wrong.
