22. I don't have any illusions of there being a "path to victory" at all at this time.
Until progressives get a majority, a REAL majority, with half+1 members in the House and 60 members in the Senate, all true progressives, then all this talk about "victory" is utter fantasy BS.

But in the meantime, we still have a god damn country to run. And its one controlled by voters. And a lot of those voters are in fact, as you said, stupid and disengaged. Regardless, those stupid and disengaged people gave Republicans enough power to do a lot of damage. And until there is another election, there really isn't a damn thing anyone can do about it. Its the cards the voters dealt the country and now we have to play them. Thats reality and all the hard headed, principled progressivism in the world is not going to change that dynamic. Only the voters can do that and for now, they have not.
