Voter decision making flowchart.

My own little creation for deciding which Democrats to, or not to support in future elections.



Like it or not.. this is how we reclaim Congress and the presidency.

1. Seems pretty straightforward. Why this isn't evident to everyone is beyond belief.

2. Maybe you should add getting

the DNC to get Behind the candidate with money and groundwork or the other option, avoid stirring up the Repubs or making it a national election. Then, point to the right option.

4. The problem with this chart

is that you're asking people to answer a hypothetical question. Many people will differ on which candidate is likely to win in the GE. We have seen that in the last election.

The right solution to this dilemma is to avoid attacking Democrats. Even if one disagrees with some or most of the positions or attitudes of one of the Democratic candidates and finds another one to their liking, one should refrain from attacking any Democrat. It's enough to vote in the primary for your favorite candidate. There is no reason to say anything against a Democrat that might hurt his/her chances in the GE, in case that person turns out to be the party's candidate.

We have to put an end to all this infighting. We have to understand that while we may disagree about specifics, in the grand scheme we are all on the same side. We can disagree without being disagreeable. We can argue our points. But we have to stop making sexist, racist, ageist, or otherwise discriminatory attacks against candidates we don't like. We have to stop accusing candidates of dishonesty or incompetence or other character flaws just because we don't like them. We have to stop coming up with attacks against Democrats that Republicans can later use to much better effect. As we have seen, the alternative to any Democrat is too horrible to contemplate, let alone live under. If we are smart, we will stop repeating the same mistake. If we had learned our lesson in 2008, we wouldn't have President Trump now. Let's learn our lesson this time.

7. I couldn't agree more.

 

Our candidates have historically done best when they run on why you should elect them rather than why you shouldn't vote for the other person. The effect is even more evident when it's done by the surrogates and supporters in addition to the candidates.

We need to stay on message... I love being a Democrat, but let's be honest here a second.. We have a major tendency to have ADD here... Attention deficit Democrats...

I'd rec ya if I could.

8. Thank you. You make an excellent point.

Instead of attacking the candidate we don't agree with, we should focus on our favored candidate's strong points. Those tend to be contagious. The winning Democrat always ends up picking up many of the positions of the losing Democrats.

Nice job, Amimnoch.
