Response to Demsrule86 (Reply #7)

68. I can promise you, as disgusted as I am over the Dems failure to even be able

to lower the eligibility age for Medicare, forcing me to have to incur HEALTH CARE DEBT at age 63, coupled with the gun ruling, the reversal of the KKK rule forcing cops to read the Miranda rights to people they arrest, and finally this current travesty.

The American electorate is profoundly ignorant - oh, many can tell you every nuance of their favorite sports team, and each of its players, and provide a very sophisticated analysis of their season chances, but don't even know we have three branches of government.

We have the constant barrage of hate-talk radio, which has brainwashed up to 20 or 25 million Americans, and let's not forget the corporate media and its shareholder-profit-driven 'news' coverage. In addition, there are now over 390 million guns in this country, and most are owned by right-wing militia groups who bought them in case they have to 'protect' themselves against the government.

When, do you think, will our party leadership WAKE UP and realize the Republican party no longer supports this republic OR democracy, and instead wants to make this into a theocracy ruled by oligarchs. If you check your history, that is what Nazi Germany was, and it cost 60 million lives to get rid of them.

When I see Biden praising McConnell and McCarthy, I want to throw up. Now, as some of you point out, it may be because he does not want to tip his hand, and he has a plan to save this republic. I would really, really, really like to believe that. I would.

And don't get me wrong - Dems are great, wonderful, excellent in every way. They walk on water compared to jerks like Gosar, Jordan, Hawley, Cruz, little Marco and all the rest of the traitorous cretins. I JUST WISH THEY WOULD THROW DOWN THE GAUNTLET AND START FIGHTING THESE PEOPLE LINE BY LINE, TOOTH BY TOOTH, NAIL BY NAIL. I wish they would never again let anything go. Nothing. Never soft pedal anything. Never.

Because we are a couple of Supreme court rulings away from 1896, if the Turtle, McCarthy, Clarence and the rest of the wing-nuts have their way.

So...yeah, I'll be on the phones when I can, trying to get out the vote. In spite of the fact I'm a primary caregiver who works full time, am disabled myself, and now am dealing with HEALTHCARE DEBT. I'll do it.

But is the electorate REALLY smart enough to vote Dem? Are they REALLY motivated enough? Will we really be able to GOTV in the face of the massive billionaire-funded super-pacs and the rest of the right-wing propaganda machine? Or do our leaders need to make some progress first? Do our leaders need to fight back ugly first?

Just asking. And this is not meant to be a criticism of the Dem leaders, God forbid. I'd vote for my snowshoe Siamese cat over ANY Republican.

But....when?
