Georgia On My Mind and a strategy for Florida in 2022

David Silverberg of The Paradise Progressive takes a look at Georgia's march to victory and asks if Florida is able to do the same. He separately looks at nominees, economy, pandemic, gerrymandering, demographics, and much more. https://theparadiseprogressive.home.blog/2021/01/23/can-florida-do-the-georgia-flip/

1. I read that

due to Covid Florida Democrats chose not to put boots on the ground and that was a major factor in our losses. I hope we can stem the tide of bleeding red in FL.

And I just have to add that I hate my governor and my senators. That is all.

2. We do face an immovable red object

We do face an immovable red object, especially with the three you mention and the history of our weakness. With the current political landscape Democrats in Florida are facing a do-or-die scenario - either grow in numbers sufficient to reach a tipping point or continue to be dragged around like children. It isn't enough for us in Florida to wait for a leader to save us; we need to help others find the good in supporting democratic policies. Only then can we become an irresistible force.

4. It comes down to how the truth and the facts are not the same thing

It is to their advantage when we, the voters, accept what we are told as being the truth. Take for example the insurgents at the Capitol. We are not told that very few that were there were indigent, uneducated, and receiving some type of handout from the government. But that is how they've been portrayed for the last so many years so it's what we believe. In actuality they are the opposite. Take Alfie Oakes for example. Here is the owner of a $30 million grocery store with two government contracts alone totaling close to $100 million. He paid for two busses to D.C. on the 6th. It wasn't the homeless that he invited to join him. Yet he tells his followers that it they have to fight against the elite that are holding them back.

The bottom line is we can't fight on narratives that they control. We also can't fight someone's beliefs. We can win support by showing that the democratic party has solutions for the real issues in your life and not waste time tilting at windmills.

5. He only wants to suppress

The free speech of people who are not rich, white, and Republican. I will also add males to that list.
