Stop! Start looking forward and strategizing what we are going to do. Just today there was a thread
with progressives throwing moderates under the bus. Let's come together.

It is time to know where the real threat is. Republicans spent over 40 years to "achieve". to this result.
This is not a surprise. What exactly are we going to do now? Nothing from the past matters.
Just get moving.

37. I would agree with you except I see the same sort of thing now...the idea that in order to

get the 'progressive wing of the party to vote in a midterm...they must get this or that. Same old, Same old. So it is not unreasonable to point out that they need to STOP. I am a progressive and yet I would vote for any Democrat in a general, I don't have to be excited or have some particular thing done for me. I am not nor ever was a one-issue voter. I realize that what went on starting with Gore's loss and ending with Hillary's loss in 16 had all but destroyed this country and student loans, BBB, family leave ETC will not matter in a country that overturns elections and denies women the right to choose...priorities folks.

who rode to power on this single voter issue. Political operatives demagogued the issue
to the Evangelical Right who fell for the rights of fetuses and embryos or the rights of women.
And tragically it worked. It, guns, and racism have given the Right the SC and much of the power
to destroy our democracy. It is time to wake up and take our country back.
