4. We Can't Just Try to Win the Presidency and Call It A Day

During the Obama years, I think many progressives bought into the Republican/right-wing talking point of punishing Democrats by staying home or voting for the Green Party.

Now, more than ever, we have to work for every race to elect Democrats and punish Republicans for their repeated efforts to subvert Democracy. If you do not want Republicans to even entertain the idea of stealing the election, then you need to vote them out at ALL levels. Even if Biden were to win, but if he was stuck with a Republican Congress, then they would just stall for years on end.

Of course, with a Republican Congress, there is nothing to keep Trump from continuing to act in ways that literally leads to deaths of thousands of Americans.
