30. The bigger lesson is that the electorate is far more energized to GOTV when they

 

are given something to vote FOR and not have it assumed that they will be as motivate to simply vote against something else.

I'll vote for whoever is the nominee but unless Democrats provide me with a candidate to vote FOR who I really believe in...I won't be donating time or money. Democrats are not entitled to anyone's vote, money or time. I can't really afford to donate and my health is not good to voluneer...but for the right candidate...I will sacrifice because i trust and believe in them. If Democrats want this Independent to go all in for them then they need to give me a reason to want to be. Again...I will vote against Trump either way. But whether or not I do anything more will depend entirely on if he nominee is someone I believe in and am excited to vote FOR.

No party is entitled to anyone's vote and if Democrats operate on the presumption that they don't have to earn votes then they are very likely to be rewarded with the re-election of Trump. I truly hope that doesn't happen, but I really fear that is exactly where we are headed.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
