4. Absolutely, without a doubt!!

 

We need to send a clear message to republicans and their allies, foreign and domestic, that their days of destruction are OVER!!

GOTV by democrats in the midterms is the one and only hope this country has to turn us away from the Randian hellscape/Russian puppet state the republicans are determined to imprison us in.

6. Only half of the millennial electorate

showed up in 2016. Based on what I saw yesterday, they will sure as heck show up in 2018. The young men and women of Parkland have made being political engaged cool again. The have turned being a political activist into something to aspire to. How effing awesome!

13. Are The Young Men And Women Of Parkland Millennials?.....

I'm thinking they are the generation after the millennials. I'm thinking the millennials are a little older and maybe out of college and starting careers and families. I believe we need to work on that group of potential voters. It is too easy for them to be distracted and not take an interest in politics and that they may be more apt to sit out an election. This is also the group that is laden with staggering college loans that they may never get out from under.

We need to make sure that that group realizes that their best interests are at stake in the Nov 2018 election. Especially if they are starting a family - as many political decisions that will be made if the Repugs maintain control of Congress will directly have an impact on their kids and their kids kids.

15. Per the Census Burea millenials are

those born from 1982-2002 so they are currently 16-36 years old. It surprised me. I thought they were older.

17. Yep! Completely agree.

I think the 18-24 have definitely been motivated. Out reach to the 24-36 and candidates that appeal to both.

7. Yesterday I checked to see if any mainstream

Channels had march on, I only get the main ones and a few others because of antenna.

No one had it on antenna but Telemundo, they carried the whole thing live and with my high school spanish I caught a few words they were saying.

Like how the president was silent on the march. They interviewed people up and down the streets as well as showing the speakers and musicians.

I think this will help get out the spanish speaking vote.

10. You're Absolutely Right - And We Can't Take Nov 2018 For Granted......

there has been a lot of talk about a Blue Wave. What I'm worried about is that many will sit back and say we got this in the bag and maybe not come out to vote. We can't let that happen. This is why all Congressional Dems must stay on message and do everything in their power to influence their constituents to GOTV. We need to turn the Blue Wave into a Blue Tsunami.
