About Me

Coffee addict. Political progressive.

Here's why challenging voters to vote is a winning strategy for Dems. It serves two major purposes.

1.
It will embarrass the GOP, nationwide. Imagine if our party ran ads on social media(youtube etc), TV, and radio that condemn the Republican Party's efforts to threaten your right to vote.

Regarding the GOP's anti-voting efforts..
This is a fascist, authoritarian power grab. In every way, Republicans are willfully attempting to undermine your right to vote.

Say that in your ads. Expose them for the authoritarian power-mongers that they are.

They are the anti-freedom party. Their attempts to limit democracy are a blatant example of modern day fascism.

Expose the GOP's power grab. Take your case to the people.

U.S. citizens don't really like power-grabbing politicians. Embarrassing the GOP can bring a ton of swing-voter support our way and engage Dem voters to turn out and vote by lighting a fire under their asses to do so.

If someone told me I can't vote, I'd run through a fucking brick wall to try prove them wrong.

2.
Challenging voters will engage them. Speak the truth. The GOP is trying to take your right to vote away.

Are you going to allow Republicans to prevent you from voting?

Voters will turn out if challenged.
..........................................................................

Democrats, take the gloves off and swing back. Nail their party to the wall by exposing them for what they are.

In your ads,
call them authoritarian

call them Fascist

call them power-mongering

Ask voters nationally,
Are you going to allow the Fascist Republican Party to prevent you from voting?

Expose the GOP as the national embarrassment that they are.

Democrats, challenge voters. Ask them, Will you allow the GOP to prevent you from voting?

Take your case to the people. And trust me, you have a bonafide argument.

I'd like to see Democrats run social media(youtube etc), TV, and radio ads asking that question.

Will you allow the Republican Party to prevent you from voting?

The GOTV response will be amazing, fellow Dems.

I f-ing guarantee it.

Global warming hastens microbial evolution. Get ready for more pandemics.

Science has proven many facts. Among them, the smaller the organism, the faster it can evolve to adapt to its surroundings.

In the past 25 years we've seen new pandemics explode..

SARS

MERS

MRSA

COVID


Global warming is hastening the rate of evolution of these microbes.

New diseases just don't pop up out of nowhere.

The scariest part of global warming isn't rising oceans or weather events.

It's the proven fact that modern pandemics are directly traced to global warming and these new "bugs" that are growing from their free energy source.

Warmth.

Biden is the next FDR.

I'm 50 years old. I've been actively engaged in Democratic Party politics since 1992.

The only Republicon that I ever voted for was in 1990. I immediately saw the error of that choice because the fucker cut state spending on college assistance. Arnie Carlson Rethug gov of Minnesota. He tried to undo Minnesota's high quality of life by undoing our states progressive policies such as high standards of public education, health care, social programs that work etc.

Since that folly in 1990, I have moved far to the left. Today, I consider myself quite far left. Just to give an idea of where I come from on a political scale. IOW I'm an old crotchety left-wing yellow-dog. Kinda scary to look at, but get to know me....

I support left-wing causes because they invoke compassion for our fellow human beings.

I support..
Universal Health Care

A $17 federal minimum living wage

Employee Free Choice Act

Major federal police reforms

Banking regulation

Carbon emission regulation

Environmental protection

Taxation for the super-rich and a taxation on accumulated super-wealth

Balancing our budgets(once we recover from the pandemic)

Cleaner, sustainable energy solutions

A New Deal-like infrastructure rebuilding program

There are so many more progressive topics that I could rant about all day but these are just a few to give an idea of where I come from.

President Joe Biden is fighting for much of what is mentioned above. He's fighting for a $15 minimum wage, albeit implemented slowly, still a major step in the right direction. He's calling for a New Deal-like infrastructure program. He's calling for price-controls on prescription drugs, so very needed. He has a great plan for environmental protection and carbon reduction. His plan to tax the super-rich needs to happen.

In 3 months, Pres Biden has already written an incredible progressive legacy. On par with FDR.

(Fun Fact: The New Deal took several years to implement fully. The New Deal 2 was signed into law by FDR several years after the New deal.)

IOW, give Biden time to heal this nation and the mess left by Trump.

He's the most progressive political leader of my 50 year old lifetime.

In closing, I'm not ranting this OP at fellow DUers, I get it, we're all Biden fans. Just want to chat about my very favorable view of my beloved Pres, Joe.

He's doing a great job in spite of the shit-show he was handed by Trump.

"And the population of Puerto Rico is bigger than 6 of these states COMBINED." PR needs statehood.

In regards to this OP I posted..
https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215366436

It's probably bad form and/or a DU rules violation to call out fellow DUers in a post in a negative way, but this is to say thanks. A positive shout-out!

A wise DUer by the name of Mackdaddy called out the fact that I left out PR when calling for DC statehood. Mackdaddy is right!.

His reply..

"And the population of Puerto Rico is bigger than 6 of these states COMBINED.

With a population of about 3.2 million it is bigger than any of these states listed by several times.

But no real representation for all of these US Citizens?"

So very true.

The point, PR and DC need statehood. Anything less is a violation of the human rights of all of their citizens.

Washington DC's population is larger than the state of Wyoming.

DC 705,000

Wyoming 578,000

Let that sink in for a moment.

DC needs statehood.

Ask an anti-vaxxer, where are the dead bodies from the covid vaccine or really any vaccine?

10's of millions of people in the US have already been vaccinated against covid with the latest figures approaching 100 million. I've done my own extensive research and deaths due to side effects or possible reaction from covid vaccines are extremely rare. Almost non-existent compared to the near 100 million vaccinated.

So, to anti-vaxxer neighbors, coworkers, maybe even family members..

Where are they hiding all the dead killed by covid vaccines and Bill Gates micro-chipping us?

Where the fuck are the dead bodies?

Because there ARE 500,000 dead bodies from Trump's failure to respond to the global pandemic. He called it a hoax for the first 2 months when we instead could have responded early and saved hundreds of thousands of deaths by taking it seriously. Mask mandates, distancing, more available testing, stay at home etc..

500,000 dead from covid and these antivax assholes still question science with ZERO evidence to back up their stupidity.

If the covid vaccine were deadly it would have killed 10's of thousands of people by now.

Trump's covid is deadly.

Our vaccines are safe.

Ask the anti-covid-vaxxer..
Where are all the dead bodies? Hiding in some Bill Gates bunker somewhere?

Bonus question..
Ask them, why is science never on your side in any argument? Where is your anti-vax science? What's your highest level of science education?

Why doesn't Norway, Sweden, the UK have daily gun/shooting deaths?

They all have smart gun control. Gun control works.

The US is the epicenter of the gun death epidemic.

Because we lack the same sensible gun-control laws that work in every other nation that has implemented them.

Democrats, ask the GOP why does gun control work so well every where it is enacted. It can work here at home with the same effective results.

Gun control works. That's why it scares the GOP so bad.

See the UK, Norway, Sweden, Canada, Japan...

Then see the daily mass shootings in the US.

The proof is eye-opening.

Once per congressional term, require an 8th grade science test for every federal office-holder.

With questions regarding human evolution from lower life-forms to the science behind man-made global warming to the science behind vaccine effectiveness. More topics would also need to be added but this is just a baseline suggestion.

This puts congress-critters views on paper, front and center. Make every elected politicians political "beliefs" regarding science a clear issue by making these test results public.

When the GOP idiots deny global warming, these test results show the US citizens the kind of ignorance that the GOP represents, and why they should be removed from power.

When the GOP denies evolution, they deny one of the most important parts of modern human physiology and health. We evolved to be healthy from certain foods and we get sick from eating bad diets. Science explains this. The GOP denies it. Its all in God's hands, according to them. Live for today and not tomorrow.

When the GOP denies vaccine efforts, they prove themselves unfit for any elected office. They are a dangerous lot. Vaccine denial should become a federal crime.

When global warming creates the next super-pandemic bug, science will be our saviour, not the GOP's ignorant denial and prayers.

Science will save us from covid, GOP prayers won't.

Put their scientific views on paper so we can show their stupidity to the world.

Almost the entire GOP is made up of 8th grade science flunkouts.

Once every 2 years, every elected officeholder should take an 8th grade science test. One day, 4 hours to complete it.

Put their scientific knowledge or lack thereof on paper, for all the world to see.

To Sen Joe Manchin, please join the rest of the party.

Or you sadly might find your party in the minority after 2022.

Democrats are fighting the good fight and need you. Filibuster reform. Protection of voting rights. Minimum wage reforms..

The protection of voting rights may very well decide elections in 2022.

To Sen Joe, we need you. Again, you may find yourself in the minority party after 2022 if things don't change at the federal level.

Sen Joe, join us. The other 99.99999% of us Democrats who want to inch the US forward. Protect voting rights and democracy.

To Sen Manchin, you have a chance to build the legacy of a senate hero if you would just get behind our president and support a Democratic agenda.

To Sen Manchin, join us. You won't regret it.
