8. Democrats spent 2 years "focusing on issues"

People know the platform.

The bigger thing that needs to happen is get people out to vote for Democrats - and not just at the federal level, but at the state or local levels. All politics is local and some of the Democratic platform "issues" are not really "issues" at all in some localities.

What IS the "issue" is motivation to actually show up and vote. And if being suppressed from voting, to get the help TO vote however best one can and THEN get people in place who promise to make it easier for them to vote in the future. It's gonna be like a bootstrap thing here to get access to voting opened up by having a massive assistance system to get those able to vote, to vote, so that changes can happen to make it easier for others to vote.
