30. so called blue wall states were turning red way before 2016.

Scott Walker was trying for his THIRD term this year. Private sector enabled Walker and were willing participants in going after public sector unions. Walker could not have done the damage he did without them.

The false narrative about 2016 and the "unpopular" candidate serves some agenda but it is essentially false and serves to kick sand in our faces when we need to focus clearly.

For 8-10 years prior to 2016 Dems fiddled while party fell apart and Republicans pushed through massive voter suppression. Voting machine irregularities, voter counting irregularities? That stated in 2000-so its taken almost 1 years for us to get a handle on it. Massive fake news and Russia interference? Too many not wanting to believe what was really happening in 2016.

The Republic party spent a decade building in state legislatures in secretary of states offices, and democrats focused on the savior model of politics-come out and rev up excitement to vote for a "charismatic" presidential candidate every four years.

Was John Kerry an unpopular candidate? He lost. Al Gore. He lost--both lost when the Democratic party was much stronger that it was in 2016-at which point it had become a shadow of its former self.

Way back, women were the backbone of the party. The unsung and unacknowledged workers who kept things going while the "menfolk"soaked up the spotlight running for office. Remember the "boiler room girls" of the Kennedy campaign. What happened ???? Like those black-robed nuns of yore they fought for opportunity for themselves and got paid employment and now they are moving into the spotlight.

I and my family cannot afford to indulge in false narratives.
