Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Thu Apr 11, 2019, 07:53 AM

 

A positive message is being delivered.

We have a lot of great candidates sweeping the country. Going from town to town delivering the message that there is a better way.

A message letting people know that the federal government isnít your enemy under the proper control, it is an institution for positive change.

They are highlighting racism and bigotry and what can be described as systemic governmental oppression. They are talking about the ways the government can curb inequality instead of upholding it.

All of our candidates are hitting on climate change and the need to act.

Taxes taxes taxes. Calling out the tax scam and talking about the need to increase revenues to pay for the common good.

Health care as a right and a path to get there.

The list goes on and on. The message is being delivered in front of crowds with local media present. Most of the local news organizations cover the excitement and content, not the negative national media hype.

Presidential primaries is one of the most important times for progressives. Our message really gets out. Itís easy to look at the national and often negative narrative. Our candidates are crushing it at the local level in town after town.

This is starting off as a great primary. I think we have a handful of Presidential people running. For me personally, that is a first. Even those I donít find to be Presidential are out there doing a great job of promoting our message. If you get the chance go read the platform of Marianne Williamson. Itís a work of art. A non-starter for President yet the platform she is promoting on a lesser level than some of the others is truly great.

The national media and internet discussion will often promote the negative in a very passionate manner. I take part in it. Itís a part of it and adds excitement and a feeling of being ďin it.Ē

Locally our candidates are crushing it and itís only going to get better.

1. I agree 100%, this crowded primary is the best thing that could happen

 

Which is why I was so dissapointed in 2016. Every presidential election is a good opportunity to communicate democratic ideals.

3. Government of, by and for the people. Such a strange notion.

 

There are only 300,000,000 of us getting -- slowly but finally -- aware and fed up with what the anti-government right has been doing.

I also think it's great that we have so many people stepping up to say what's right with our nation and how we can undo the damage done by corrupt Republicans and return to advancing our society.

5. As you say, Democrats sweeping the nation with our messages.

 



The Republicans have Trump. Heard he wants to double down on cruelty against children as an instrument of policy.

And he now ship migrants to sanctuary cities. Do that, idiot. I'm from California, where we've always had to try to help large numbers of America's unfortunates who arrive after their own red states refuse to and even push them out. We'll let the electorate see how our blue cities and states deal with the influx of mostly women and children who've had to flee their homes.
