2020 GA: Biden won by approximately 11,000 votes

COVID deaths: 24,632


If there is one thing that should keep the GOP from playing into this death cult, it's the midterm elections. At this point, even from a purely strategic viewpoint: wtf are they thinking???

1. They are not thinking rationally.

At this point to continue to believe that the election was stolen, one must be using the critical thinking skills of a ten year old. For many of them I suspect that they have chosen to believe that the election was stolen rather than, it is harder to win elections due to changing demographics. Either way, it should lead to eventual less attention and participation in elections, or things like Jan 6th.

2. Florida has a similar

Vote back death county.

Im sure the deaths are over represented in cities, which tend to run more liberal. But if I were a republicans running in one of those states Id be sweating a bit.

4. If it's true that 99.5% of deaths are among the unvaxxed

And if the unvaxxed are mostly republicans, their electorate may be thinning out by next year's election day.

3. They're just making sure voting doesn't matter

So numbers of voters don't matter either, even on their side. Everyone is expendable.

9. It absolutely could make a difference

Since the very first wave, the deaths have tended Conservative. Conservatives were less likely to mask and social distance. And now the deaths are 99% among the unvaccinated who are almost all conservative.

If GA lost 25,000 people and 20,000 of them were likely voters, there's a very good chance 15,000 of those or more were reliable Republican voters.

10. I love how everyone here just assumes all COVID deaths are from anti-vaxxer Repukes.

From the CDC:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/investigations-discovery/hospitalization-death-by-race-ethnicity.html

Covid is a problem for our entire country, and not just white Republicans.

Across the US, white people over the age of 65 have a greater than 90% vaccination rate. Voting trends would tell us that most / many of those people will be voting Republican. Even here in Georgia, with our lower vaccination pace, people over the age of 65 have a 94% vaccination rate.

The media, and DU apparently, focuses on the loud white dude facebook poster that is anti-vax and then gets hospitalized and / or dies. But the real data is much more mixed, and vulnerable populations are suffering horribly. According to the Bloomberg article below, Black and Hispanic populations are lagging in vaccination rate.

https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/covid-vaccine-tracker-global-distribution/us-vaccine-demographics.html

Georgia Vaccination rate
Black: 41.9%
White: 50.7%
Asian: 69.1%
Hispanic: 38.0%

12. While I think you make a very important point, and that isn't so cut and dry

Last edited Mon Sep 27, 2021, 12:01 PM - Edit history (1)

About who is vaxxed and who isn't, I will point out that democratic counties like Fulton have a near 60% vaccination rates, where smaller counties like ware have a 40% rate. Just like in my state of California, the counties that voted against the recall we're almost nearly all low vaccinated counties, and those who voted for it had a generally higher rate.... Of course this says nothing about the specific demographics and that the unvaccinated do affect tons of people outside their communities anyways, but I do still think that those who are dying of COVID are more likely to lean overwhelmingly republican.

14. It's the reason we're seeing so many voting restrictive bills, . . .

bizarre, anti-democratic vote counting regulations, anything to make it harder to vote and/or sow doubt about electoral integrity so that legitimate elections can be overturned.

We need to remind ourselves--Republicans are a minority party attempting to regain power to rule the majority, impose their failed ideas on the rest of us, as in trickle-down economics, suspicion and hatred for the 'other'--which, of course, is anything short of white male Christians--and have a free hand in looting the country of its natural resources.

They're going for broke, the whole enchilada as Poppy Bush was fond of saying.

Which is why Dems need to be just as aggressive, even vicious to fight back and win the day.

Because losing is not an option.
