1. Good, like I said to the other report of this

Remarkable isnt it that she has to explain this to anyone who would be on her/our side in the first place!

4. This is good on her part but I don't consider those people to be progressives

True progressives are already supporting Biden and don't need urging.

I look at actions, not how much they insist that are something based on social media.

It's like those conservative christian groups always going on about God and morals but if you look at their own actions it's full of perverts , adultery, deadbeats, treating others like shit etc.

5. Exactly Thank You! "progresives" gets thrown

around a lot.. just because they call themselves "progressives" doesn't mean anything. It's Positive Action that's the true sign of Progress.

Like the loyal Democratic Base, POC & especially WOC are who get out there and VOTE! That's how we Save Democracy & that's how they've been doing it.

Those who sat/sit home don't care about the Supreme Court/Poor People/The Planet.

8. Some are some arent

She seemed to be talking about the people who have become disenchanted, disillusioned and discouraged by what politics has done, and do not vote because of it. Many of those people would vote democratic if they do vote, but have decided that because the system doesn't work for them, there is no point in trying. I support reminding them that if we keep democracy alive another day, we will give ourselves a chance to get the system to work for them.

Clearly that won't happen if we re elect Trump and allow democracy to die altogether.

10. Again some are, some aren't. I know personally some people who support progressive policies that

will not vote for the reason of disllusionment of the system. I can vouch such progressives exist, unfortunately.

12. Because they won't vote for the Democratic nominee?

Or, in other words, the most progressive choice? And instead vote for complacency and doing nothing, over getting rid of fascism?


In many way I would agree. Of course, they disagree while believing they are fighting for a somehow more noble cause. I have the ability to knock some sense in some of those people, and do when I can. Others are a lost cause.

15. They may call themselves progressives

But real progressives care about progressives causes and would never let a conservative be elected. Most of them just want an excuse to feel morally superior to everyone else.

16. I feel like that about most.

I give the ones I'm friends with more of a benefit of the doubt, while holding out hope they might end up making the right decision. It's incredible to me anybody like that still exists.

She understands how the system works. I want it changed, but it's what we've got to work with right now.
