“The House isn’t out of reach, and expanding the Senate is well-within our grasp. We just have to vote.”

Meanwhile, Republicans are engaged in "coordinated fear-mongering from their well-oiled propaganda machine, voter suppression, and a war on schools""

See below for an excellent thread by Angry Staffer on the midterms. A few key points include:

  • “There’s a lot of analysis out there that, in my view, is completely missing the point about both the stakes of this election *and* the GOP’s platform.”
  • “The GOP does *not* care about electability anymore — they envision a future in which votes don’t matter.”
  • “So what’s a party with a dwindling base and an unpopular platform to do? Easy: Coordinated fear-mongering from their well-oiled propaganda machine, voter suppression, and a war on schools”
  • “To be clear: they know it’s bullshit, they also know their voters aren’t smart enough to realize that.”
  • “The GOP doesn’t care about ‘wokeness,’ they care about the inevitable drift away from the GOP that comes with being able to be the person you want to be, and having the ability to think for yourself.”
  • “So anyway, the GOP has decided that doing all of this is exhausting. Being perpetually outraged, promising year after year that Dems are coming for your guns, keeping voters stupid and scared, etc. is a lot of work, right? So why not just steal power?”
  • “The way I see it, we have a couple of make-or-break elections coming up. The pundits are already telling you that the midterms are over, at least for the House, but that’s nonsense.”
  • “If we do our jobs in 22 and 24, we can send an unequivocal message to the GOP that America doesn’t support their bullshit. If we don’t, it’s not hyperbole to say that the Republic could be changed forever.”
  • “The House isn’t out of reach, and expanding the Senate is well-within our grasp. We just have to vote. Sharing stuff on Twitter is great, but we need to be doing everything we can for the next 10 days to get as many people to the polls as possible”
  • “If the turnout trends in Georgia extrapolate to the rest of the nation, I feel *very* confident in our ability to hold the House and expand the Senate by 2-4 seats. If we do that, we can still save the Republic. Block out the noise and let’s get to work.”
