6. Some here mistake a refusal to roll over and kiss republicon ass

for a refusal to accept a slim majority. That slim majority is acknowledged.

What scares the hell out of me is that many, including some here, keep buying into that "we need to sit back and win the next midterm/general bigger, then we can do something". I've been hearing that for 20 years. The fact is, if republicons are successful in their current attempts to increase the voter suppression and gerrymandering, there will be no Democratic wins in 22. Or ever again, in fact.

Their goal is an absolute hold on power. They're close to achieving that. Our #1 goal should be to stop and REVERSE republicon cheating and stealing. If we fail to do that, we will never be able to do anything again. Despite the fact that millions more vote D, and would vote D if able, republicons will take the offices. They haven't legitimately won a presidential election since Eisenhower. Millions more Democratic votes for the Senate and the House, yet asshole Republicon scum usually control one or both. That has to be stopped, and now is the last chance we'll probably ever get.

Permanent republicon control would mean no accomplishments for us, no ability to stop republicons from giving more tax cuts to billionaires and corporations. No way to stop them from undoing any Democratic accomplishments. That's the only two things they seem to want to do.

No way to force a republicon government to take necessary action when the next deadly disease shows up.

The way I see it, it's now or never and there is NO place for any kind of Democratic complacency. Our lives depend on it.

BTW, I agree the covid bill is pretty good and that is the way Democrats need to approach everything when dealing with republicon dirtbags.
