20. We ARE the left. :) And there are reports of rising anger among

Dems and Dem-leaning indies, but "rage"? Not us.

The right and LW extremists do rage much better than us. And reality is that many extremists don't bother to vote. (Sanders didn't vote all through the civil rights era until he ran and voted for himself -- no one worth voting for. ) Or vote stupid (like to help Republicans to take out Democrats and destroy the nation so the righteous fringe can take over).

Just yesterday some here were admiring people marching in the street over people who "just" vote, completely mistaking what people putting their lives on the line around the planet are doing for what they're trying to accomplish. I'd put a laughing emoji on, but that kind of contempt for the vote was a big factor that put the Republicans in power.

On the plus side, though, sensible people on the left who do vote and many who might vote are getting appropriately angry, at all who did this.
