Response to A Simple Game (Reply #9)

11. One side, the smaller side, votes consistantly and monolithically

our side, the larger and far more diverse, votes in lower margins. A Democratic voter that stays home magnifies and multiplies a Republican voter that shows up. They are already over represented in a system stacked heavily in their favor. We ought not surrender our power to them.

If you are disappointed in the candidates on our side then run or work for someone you can get behind enthusiastically. That takes work, effort, persistence and patience. I know something about this. Trust me.
