VA Democratic voters- Vote with some thought and do not sit out please

I have lived through Clinton and Obama years and off-year elections. During Clinton, democrats were "not enthusiastic" during off-year and first mid-term because they did not get everything promised. They did not vote and awarded the GOP, who did nothing, the win by default. During Obama's first term, voters were not enthusiastic because they did not get everything in ObamaCare. They did not vote and awarded the GOP the big win. The same GOP that did nothing! Here comes 2021. Democratic voters are pissed because Voter Rights did not pass, and they get only 1.75 b instead of 3.5 b in infrastructure. So, they are angry and VA is preparing to vote in a Trumpian GOP by default. All this time, GOP did nothing. ZERO. If our voters keep rewarding the party that did ZERO, and kept getting angry at Democrats who do half, I just do not know how Democrats can ever do what they can. I mean, we lost the Supreme Court, thanks to our off-year election performance. The only solution is to vote for more left of center Democrats. Sitting out will not help. This time, we may lose the country. You do not want Virginia to become a Texas.

Best advice for Democrats

Thomas Friedman- NY Times- Jan 13, 2021
Friedman -“Be smart: Ban the phrase “defund the police.” Talk instead about “better policing,” which everyone can get behind. Instead of “democratic socialism,” talk about “more just and inclusive capitalism.” And tone down the politically correct cancel culture”

In short, left wing should be smart and cool it. Increase majority in the House and Senate in 2022. That is very critical. Govern center-left.


NBCNews has called it for Ossoff


Somewhat disappointed with Rep. Clyburn

Report: Rep. Clyburn Disappointed With Cabinet Picks

South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn told The Hill that not enough Black Americans have been nominated to join the incoming Biden administration.


The top pick VP Harris? And, the process is not even over. No wonder Democrats have problem maintaining majority.

Kobach at it again

Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is representing Monica Palmer, the Wayne County, Mich., Board of Canvassers chair who wants to rescind her certification of election results and was called by President Donald Trump.

Kobach, who has long promoted claims of voter fraud, had been relatively quiet since the election, but appears to have enlisted in Trump’s efforts to overturn the victory of President-elect Joe Biden.

On Friday afternoon, Kobach and Palmer appeared jointly on the radio show of conservative commentator Sean Hannity. He introduced Kobach as having taken Palmer’s affidavit. Kobach said in a text message that he is one of several attorneys who has assisted Palmer.

Appeals court rules against El Paso's shutdown order amid Covid surge


How can anyone stop them if they have a death wish? They are all like Alito in the Supreme Court.

A ittle concerned about the House majority

I see only 208. 32 races not called yet.

Looks like finally Purdue is under 50%
