Here’s a Reality-Based Battle Plan for the Midterms and Beyond – Truthdig

https://www.truthdig.com/articles/heres-a-reality-based-battle-plan-for-the-midterms-and-beyond/

Brava! What a critically important article to read prior to twitching a single nerve in that voting place YOU ARE GOING TO GO THIS NOVEMBER 6, 2018, or what I’m calling Black America Day! Because we may be venturing into unknown territory here, a void, or it will be a black mark on our nation, or it will signify the rightful rise of Black and Native Americans who have been persecuted continuously for far too long.

Rise up! Reclaim power! And let your voice be heard proud and strong, not just this once but as continuously as the march of the white male supremacists over this precious planet of ours.

Man, this really says bad, bad things about the Democratic Party. :-\ This was a clear, stark choice between a progressive, forward-thinking, unbeholden, plain-spoken candidate and a classic, white-male supremacist, patriarch figure, good guy, good fella, mansplaining, well-moneyed, slickster con man; and New York, a supposed bastion of liberalism picked the con man. Hopefully those actual Democrats, progressives, working people, principled individuals in those flyover states turn out in numbers sufficient not only to defeat the obviously rotten-to-the-core, wicked Republican Party but the self-serving, Wall Street-genuflecting, “centrist”, game-playing insiders within their own party.

Two things that continue to be very broken in this country: our voting system and our puritanical, anachronistic, twisted justice system.

Election results from this week

https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/08/politics/takeaways-ohio-special-election-michigan-kansas-missouri-washington-primaries/index.html

I’m very concerned about the lack of support for these progressive candidates from the Democratic party leaders. 😐 I would not yet get excited about November. I would call these mixed results from how I read them.
