Response to Jakes Progress (Reply #107)

110. It dampens the vote...Gillibrand is one person...she is not my senator nor yours if I remember

correctly. She was also not the only one that did that...my guy Sherrod Brown is up for reelection in 18. As for Democrats...I doubt a racist Democrat could win a primary... but this particular year, we are fucked if we don't win and the same is true in 20...this party won't stand for anything if we don't win...consider that we have the best platform ever...and not a snowball's chances in implementing it. I would vote for Satan himself this year is there was a D next to his name because to allow Trump unfettered access to our government is political suicide...nice opinion you have of Dems anyway...I know no Dem who is racist. And if we don't win in 18 and 20..the GOP will have the courts and then liberalism is dead for a generation. Vote for the Democrat as if your life depends on it because it does...much of what you said seems to me to be one of the reasons we lost in 16. That some Democrats just are not good enough to vote for...well as we watch Dreamers deported which is likely to happen think about that for a minute.

Elections have consequences. When you vote for a Democrat, you are voting for a democratic agenda even if the person you vote for does not agree with every aspect of it. if you vote Republican, third party or sit home you are voting for a republican agenda. Again they have control so whether they are moderate or hard core, they support Republican agenda. If you primary a sitting Democrat and then lose the seat...a Republican is put into office. Time to consider that a vote for any Democrat is the way forward...and it always was.
