When voters have a legitimate choice – we win

Filed in National by on November 29, 2018 20 Comments

The last unresolved House Race Of 2018 was won by the Democrat. The Dems flipped 40 seats. A huge wave. The aggregate Democratic House vote this year is 90.6% of the total votes cast for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

See collaborationist Democrats? When voters actually have something to vote for during the midterms, we win. Imagine what we could have done in 2010 and 2014 had voters been given something to vote for. Save the House in 2010. The Senate in 2014. We would have stocked the court with liberals. Replaced Scalia and Ginsburg with liberals. Oh well. Let’s never ever go back to watering down the Dem message again, ok? Always make the affirmative case. And voters will always vote Democratic. Always. For every office. In every election. Always. Forever.

  1. We also would have won the Senate in 2016 if we hadn’t run so many retread losers. Including the retread loser who was our presidential nominee.

    I would have even considered voting against Carper if the Republicans had run someone who wasn’t a pandering used car salesman religious nut opportunist supporting the carnival barker

      That said, your only practical course is to primary. Pubs will never run a candidate who is not batshit crazy.

      • mouse says:

        Yeah, agreed. And I did vote against him in the primary and supported his challenger. Name recognition is impossible to defeat with such an uninformed population.

  3. what did you say? says:

    you wackos never support anyone but extreme leftists, the ones who have ruined the state

  4. RE Vanella says:

    Which ones are the extreme leftists and how did they ruin the state?

  5. nathan arizona says:

    A lot of the winning Democrats were not leftists. There’s more than one way to beat Republicans.

    • jason330 says:

      Yes and no. Ocasio can’t win in every district, but “we are less bad” will always lose in the long run.

      So, I hope we can agree that a Conner Lamb (PA18) for example needs a Democratic Party with a coherent message other than “we are less bad.”

      I hope we can agree, at least, on that.

  6. RE Vanella says:

    Yes. Easy way to say it is beating Republicans is an electorial strategy. It’s not the only game to be played. It’s a small part of the larger game.

  7. Hmm says:

    Standing for something matters.

    That said everything you stand for can’t be out of step with your electorate.

    I agree Lamb is a good example.

    • jason330 says:

      Ok. But the big picture. Let’s agree that the handful of “persuadable” voters in Lamb’s district are not more important than the hundreds of thousands Dem voters left on the sideline by a Democratic Party that historically put chasing the so-called “middle” above having a coherent message.

      If these mid-term results teach us anything it is that Dems win in conservative, moderate, and liberal districts when they keep the message affirmative.

      We are slightly better versions of Republicans

      vs…

      Democrats make sure access to health care is more secure and affordable.
      Democrats think women should not be second class citizens.
      Democrats support tax fairness.
      Democrats are science-based.
      Democrats support teachers and schools.
      Democrats don’t sell out to corporations by taking donations from corporate PACs.

      No contest. That all works in PA18, in Texas, and Brooklyn.

        “Democrats don’t sell out to corporations by taking donations from corporate PACs.”

        unless you consider half the caucus and Big Pharma and the insurance industry.

    How do you convince folks that funding the maintenance of medicare, medicate, SS, educational funding and clean water are more important than stopping Guatemalans in diapers from attacking us? When people want to believe obvious lies that panders to their tribal bigotry, democratic processes fail.
