6. We should have hired George Lakoff years ago.

In his book, "Moral Politics," Lakoff stated that the dems believe that people vote based on intellect, when in actuality, a ton of people vote on emotion. Our side thinks it's good enough to direct people to our platform page to read what we stand for, all the while, the right is bombarding the airwaves & social media with clever sound bites that stick in your head, who cares if they're honest or not?

Someone once said that democrats are good at policy but suck at politics. We're gonna lose our country if we don't get our act together. GOTV used to be our strong suit, but with all the suppression legislation being passed, we can't afford a demoralized base. And I'm not sensing a whole lot of enthusiasm on our side, while there side is revved up & ready to vote. And ready to count the votes, too. Something I'm not sure our side is taking seriously enough.
