Put those 40 democrats on the DINO list and get them primaried out! We must hold our elected officials accountable by voting them out in the primaries when they have been bad and voted against our wishes. The government can never work for we the people unless many more people get involved and educate themselves about our government and studies both sides of every issue thouroughly, pro and con. More of us need to care and never give up. Giving up will only mean loss, we can’t win if we ever give up.
Try making politics a hobby and devote some real time to doing whatever you can about issues you care about. We cannot afford to give up. Any candidate can easily be primaried out if even just a few more concerned citizens turn up and vote in primaries. Get to know the candidates better. Get them to agree never to sell out and if they do then get the word out and primary them out in the next election. Also try to pay more attention to bills coming up and contact your representatives frequently on issues you care about. Perhaps we ought to make a simple basic handout about how to be a good citizen and do the basic things that everyone can easily do, and hand them out to new graduates and all people. We could also add on how to do more and more things to help with our self government, or just put the few most important very basic things on a card as a reminder to vote and vote in primaries, and refer them to a website or phone number for more ideas.
Don’t give up on the democrats yet. Changes are coming. We are going to have a big change this November. Even if the best candidate did not win the primary we could also start a write in campagn and tell people to do that instead of voting in a DINO, all of those 40 democrats are up for reelection in November. So vote them out in November, write in a better candidate, and get others to do so also.
All we can do is to do our best to do whatever we can do. Perhaps in some cases, even bad democrats still might be better than a much worse republican. We must vote them out if we can and keep up the pressure on them by barraging them with letters and petitions and phone calls, etc. on issues we care about, and try to vote them out next time. Every bit counts. This is a long and arduous fight for the long term. But it’s the only way save Civil War and we don’t want it to come to that.
We are behind, way behind on organizing and getting the massive job done on every front. We need more free radio exposure and better programs to the public. Democrats are bad at media and bad at getting our message out to the public. More good candidates need to run to compete with bad candidates. It will just take a lot of hard work and all the money we can get without being beholden to it. Campagn reform and voting rights and free and fair elections must be our top priority because if these things are not functioning properly, then neither can our government.
Also our civil servants are neither a swamp nor a Deep State, this is a hideous right wing lie. Some of our best and most patriotic people in government and the least corrupt members of our government are our civil servants. It is the contractors and the corrupt elected officials and the lobbyists that need watching and investigation instead. This is just a ruse and a deflection. The republicans want to eliminate all the watchdogs in the civil service, so that they can raid the henhouse and get away with it. Mark my words this is the truth! The Trumpites are just jealous of their jobs that they cannot qualify for without a better education that they are loathe to undertake. It may seem fun to put down people whom you envy and are jealous of for awhile, but envy and hate are poor foundations for any kind of decent life.
