The House race in Georgia's 6th district was another lost for Democrats who insist on running milquetoast candidates again Republican right-wingers. John Ossoft, the Democrat, was a middle of the road, fence riding candidate who inspired no one. His entire campaign was designed to dodge populist, progressive issues like raising the minimum wage, free college, tax reform, Medicare for all, and ending useless wars. He ran against a republican who was against all those issues and even said that working people don't deserve a living wage. I suppose she is an advocate of restoring slavery. She also is against women's rights, maybe she is not a woman?
The losses in the past four special elections, Kansas, Montana, South Carolina, and now Georgia shows that the Demo. Party doesn't have a message. People want to hear what you believe and are planning to do and centrist bullshit ain't it. They don't want to hear that you are not going to raise taxes, on the contrary they want to hear that you are going to make everyone pay their taxes, especially corporations. Corporations are hoarding trillions in overseas tax havens and avoiding billions in taxes. What do you think the deficit would be if they paid their fair share like working class stiffs?
Do you think Medicare for all is a bad idea or would you rather pay outrageous premiums to greedy insurance companies for minimal coverage? Do you like to incur huge debts to maintain your standard of living or would a livable wage help? How about free college for your kids versus thousands in tuition debt?
These are simple questions to ask voters but apparently Demo candidates to this date are afraid to ask them let alone propose programs to accomplish them. These are the issues that affect most Americans even dumb-ass racist republicans. But apparently the leaders of the DNC don't get it. They would rather cuddle-up to Wall Street and corporate donors and run candidates who sound more like republicans than deal with the real issues affecting real people.
Comments to think about.
