Trump Is Running As A Full On Fascist in 2024
Thank you for the data and for your clear-eyed leadership. To paraphrase Winston Zeddemore, we have the tools and we have the talent to win big next year. But despair and apathy is our biggest enemy which is why Putin and MAGA and trying to poison our discourse and create false narratives. Thank you for pushing back against all this misinformation and keeping us motivated.
My background is in data analytics, so I am thrilled to find a source of fact-based data driven information. I'm taking a breather from most of my activism until after Thanksgiving. (Althought I do have several election wrap-up Zoom calls this week). But then I will gear back up albeit at a slower pace. I will be writing "register to vote" postcards through Field Team 6 (fieldteam6.org) as well as monitoring my favotite GOTV postcard channels (www.postcardstovoters.org, www.activateamerica.vote) for new campaigns like run-offs or special elections. Postcards to Voters has taken on the daunting task of reminding all FL Democratic voters who signed up for Vote by Mail for the 2022 midterms that they need to sign up AGAIN for 2024. PTV will be cycling through various FL counties so there are always be postcards to write.
Another great post. Love the graphics/data page. Love the CPI is stable. Signed up for all your zooms. Recommend to everyone to listen to you/Tom on DSR pod. Incredible insight there about the ‘polling industrial complex’. Many who sound like check pullers, lacking integrity who choose to Not rise to this unprecedented moment. Thank you both for pushing back on them despite how unpopular it must make you in that community. You two remind me of this scene in National Treasure. Anyone else agree?
Here is Rep Moskowitz giving a gut wrenching account from his visit to Israel. It feels like such an important message he brings. Incredible interview that ties together Hamas, foreign social media propaganda, and speaker/R obtuseness.
Where is the Hopium..... that D’s have such a convicted (the good kind) and knowledgeable, clear & strongly communicative deep bench of this caliber for today and the future!
It’s great that the rate of inflation increase has fallen so low. But I think we need to be careful as to how this good news is communicated to the general public. Prices remain high and everyone feels it at the grocery store and at the gas pump. On some level the new high prices are becoming baked in and people are just accepting that as a fact. But that doesn’t necessarily remove the sting when people do their shopping. If the massage put out by the campaign is an enthusiastic, “inflation is down!” People might think, “what the hell are they talking about?” I think it’s very important to really educate people that the rate of increase is down, not prices. Even though wages are rising people tend to focus on the negative and not the positive. So rather than feeling positive about the good news they may feel resentment that the administration is out of touch with the reality of what people are experiencing everyday. I think the message about inflation needs to be carefully nuanced that there is good news about inflation but regular folks are still feeling the pinch about high prices. I don’t really know how to do it and I’ll leave it up to the campaign professionals to figure it out. I just think it’s important so President Biden can continue to legitimately sell his economic successes and help guarantee his reelection.
Yup, Trump is a wannabe fascist dictator, and the GOP has sold its soul to this sociopath. Well, we knew that in January of 2021. All hands on deck for Biden and the Democrats in 2024. We are going to need them!
