4. I hear you!

That's a possibility that we need to crush. We need an overwhelming victory in November, since the closer it might be, the more likely a theft becomes. And that crushing victory is actually more of a real possibility than is a theft.

One of the things that I think is most important regarding Iroquois history is that they recognized that in many instances, an opponent from yesterday can become an ally today. This was frequently case-specific, with no implication they would remain an ally in the future. I think of this when it comes to the Lincoln Project, etc. I respect their abilities, although I recognize that, other than in 2020, they have been the opposition. They are now a case-specific ally, though I do not think that will hold for long. Not unless they actually take ownership for planting the seeds that eventually sprouted into Trump.

Likewise, I try to focus on convincing independent voters, especially the leftists, that 2020 is a case-specific contest, and that it is in their best interests to vote for all Democratic Party candidates, especially Joe Biden.
