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.
