This is from Joe Visconti, former Republican candidate for governor in Connecticut. Keep it classy GOP!
Just got done knocking doors for a local senate candidate. Most people were disinterested, some were rude, and others were outright assholes. On at least two occasions I asked “what issues are important to you?” Both had the same glazed over look on their face. One blatantly said “I don’t really care about anything”.
Don’t care about anything?!? With everything going on in this world, government corruption, environmental degradation, endless war, inequality, madmen ruling the world – and you don’t fucking care about ANYTHING? This is what our country is. A bunch of mindless sheep, trodding along in the rat race.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, some macho meat head opens the door and starts screaming at me. “I’m a marine WE DONT VOTE!!” “Get the fuck off my door”. So much for protecting our democracy and freedom. This is #WhoWeAre

“Melissa is focused on her family — not fake news this morning,” Anthony Pedicini, a campaign consultant, told FloridaPolitics.com.”
By that, he means she’s not actively creating anymore fake news at this moment.
A Republican candidate for the Florida House lied about having a college degree and posed with a fake diploma after a news outlet questioned her credentials.
“Why don’t good people run for office?”
“When I woke up, my head was on a tree stump covered in blood,” Richard Ojeda told NBC News. “Everyone was looking at me.”
In rare move, national Democrats come out against primary candidate Laura Moser in bid for Culberson’s seat
The Democratic Party only wants unity when they are forcing their crappy corporate candidates down our throats. When true populists and progressives run, they attack them to help protect their wealthy donors.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Thursday posted negative research on Democratic congressional hopeful Laura Moser, one of seven Democrats vying to unseat Republican U.S. Rep. John Culberson.
The times they are a changin!
“Carter, an IT specialist and veteran, defeated incumbent Republican delegate and House Majority Whip Jackson Miller by around 10 percentage points, in an election many thought was an easy race for the GOP candidate.”
Lee Carter, a member of Democratic Socialists of America, had been written off by establishment Democrats, but just beat a top-ranking Virginia Republican.
New Jersey Teachers Union Backs Pro-Trump Candidate, Warning Democrats Not to Take Educators for Granted
“This past March, the NJEA declared it would try to unseat Sweeney, but there were no Democrats willing to primary him. The union could have chosen to give no endorsement and still run negative ads against Sweeney, but the NJEA instead decided to endorse his Republican challenger along with running attack ads.”
It’s a contentious move, but one that is unlikely to change the ultimate outcome of the election. Democrats are expected to control all three branches of government after November, a major turning point for the Garden State.
