The Repugnicans have nothing left.
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 03:03 PM by longship
The Democratic Party has all the issues on their side, now even national security. A huge majority think the country is going in the wrong direction. A substantial majority think that Democrats will do a better job in Congress. Iraq is taking yet another nose dive. Even more Repugnican scandals are coming to light. Almost every single candidate poll movement is going in Democrat's direction. The only polls moving the other way are not close anyway.

This is what has happened. The Repukes have painted themselves into a corner. They have no where to go. That's why they've now flip-flopped on Stay the Course, and even been so bold as to outright lie about it. That's why they are making personal attacks, "Hillary is ugly", Michael J. Fox is faking Parkinson's, etc. That's why they have nothing substantive to say. They are totally and politically bankrupt.

What can we do about it? Exploit it.

  1. Work GOTV
  2. Make phone calls
  3. Walk precincts
  4. Volunteer as a poll worker/watcher
  5. Give until it hurts
  6. Volunteer at a candidate or Democratic Party headquarters
  7. Vote for the Democrat of your choice


We can do this. No race is unreachable this year. With the Repukes in total meltdown there's no practical limit to the number of House seats we can win. Every day there are more going into the competitive column. My last estimation is upwards of 80 House races or more. Chairman Dean's fifty state strategy is going to pay off greater than we ever expected. We could easily take fifty seats or more in the House.

Work! Work!! Work!!!

Pick a Democrat candidate and do what you have to do.

7. Bush is going to pull some kind of a stunt
to throw our country into a tailspin..

I hope his is arrested before he has
the chance to do more damage to our people.

3. Except for the voting machines and a shit-load of money.
I'm in the Molly Ivins camp; optomistic, but not celebrating a damned thing.

4. Who's celebrating?
We need to earn the celebration. We need to work even harder to make sure that we can have something real to celebrate.

We need to make sure that Repugnican electoral games won't take away the people's right to have their votes counted. That's precisely why I framed my OP the way I did.

The stakes are all too high to let up. If we all work hard, we can do this.

8. Hopefully Americans won't forget
And we can count on Democratic sanity for a good 50 years, like after FDR won.
