We Need To Have An Historic Voter Turnout For The Nov 2018 Election....

I've posted this many times before on DU and will keep on posting this until the Nov 2018 election is over. It needs to be the biggest voter turnout in U.S. history for any election. We need to send a meaningful message to the Repugs & Trump. So - GOTV!!!!!!

We know the Repugs are going to pull out all the stops to suppress votes, cheat, steal votes and have Russian help. The only way we'll be able to counteract this is to have people come out to vote in historic numbers in Nov. Make it the highest voter turnout than any election ever in the U.S.

We owe this to the future generations of this country. Right now I'm thinking of the millennials and those that follow - essentially - our children and grandchildren. 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 - and now SCOTUS - will directly have an impact on their kids and their kids kids.

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.

Today was like another nail in the coffin of this democracy. With a SCOTUS appointment again for Trump it will change this country for generations to come. The Dems need to fight like they never fought before. Screw taking the high road. Where has it gotten us?

So again - the Nov 2018 Midterms need to be a 'most historic election'. We need to make the midterms the highest voter turnout of any election in this country and we have to do everything in our power to take back the House and Senate (even if by one seat in the Senate).

I'm not social media savvy - but those of you that are - you need to get this message out on social media ASAP. Again the purpose is to 'get people out for the Nov 2018 Midterms to make it the highest voter turnout of any election ever in this country'.

GOTV!!!!! TABA!!!! (Take America Back Again)

1. I Guess Not Many DU'ers Agree With My Thinking Here.....

I very rarely get a response to this idea - pro or con - and I'm not sure how to read it. Am I wrong with trying to push for a historic voter turnout? Is it a stupid idea? Or is there an apathy in the Dem Party or an I don't care attitude?

Any comments would be appreciated.

4. Yes, we need to find the people who need rides and provide them.

Also, help people get mail in ballots if they are home bound.
