The Democratic Party’s decision to not fully back Quist proves they’ve learned nothing from 2016. If they want to win the House back, they need to fight for every single seat!
It doesn’t mean Democrats have given up completely on the race — or that Republicans are without concerns.
Keep your eye on the UK General Election comming up in 7 weeks, Under the British Parliamentary system the Prime Minister and call an Election at any time within a 5 year period, this is what is called a “snap election”, Prime Minister Thersa May of the Conservative Party is a political oppurtunist who thinks she can solidify her majority if she wins and election now, Jeremy Corbyn who is the Leader of the Labour Party has an uphill battle, if he were to prevail it would be a boost for the American Progressive Movement, a Progressive victory in another English speaking Country with comparable inequality and social problems.
Trump has zero respect for the Constitution or your rights.
“President Donald Trump on Twitter Sunday lashed out against citizens who’d taken to the streets to exercise their First Amendment rights.”

“Mélenchon’s policies include reducing France’s working week from 35 to 32 hours, lowering the retirement age to 60, raising the minimum wage and social security benefits, and taxing earnings of more than €33,000 a month at 100%.”
Nothing about this platform is “far left”. It’s allowing workers to prosper from the fruits of their labor.
Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s rise turns presidential campaign into four-horse race watched by voters in ‘destructive mood’
During Mid-Term Election the Voter Turnout is around 38%, add in the Gerrymandering of Congressional Districts to that and you probebly have 15% of the US Electorate dominating the House of Representatives and Senate.
In Australia during the 1920s, they were having Voter Turnouts of around 55% and they believed at that time that was inadaqaute for a Government to have a mandate so they made Voting Mandatory.
If filling out Tax Returns is Mandatory, then why cant Voting or atleast casting a Ballot be Mandatory, providing there is….
1. Automatic Voter Registration
2. A Public Holiday for Federal Elections
3. Minimum 30 Days Early Voting in Every State.
The United States Constitution should be Amended so that a Right to Vote in anchored into it, and the Federal and State Governments introduce legislation to make sure all Citizens are registered to Vote.
Bernie Sanders has introduced Legislation, along with Keith Ellison and Mark Pocan to make this a Reality.
Ranked-Choice Voting that has just been introduced in Maine on the State level, would make Gerrymandering much harder as their would be multi-member districts.
Populism will win in rural states
“Quist is running as a populist and supports a single-payer health care system, but his campaign bristles at comparisons to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), whom Quist backed in the Democratic presidential primary. In his first TV ad, launched Tuesday, he calls single-payer “health care we can afford.” He’s ardently pro-choice and opposes defunding Planned Parenthood, framing it as a fight against government intrusion into people’s personal lives. He understands climate change, but couches his belief with the exact same anecdote used by Zinke ― a story about watching the ice in Glacier National Park recede year after year.”
Big Sky Country Democrats are running a legendary folk singer with a populist flair against a cartoon plutocrat. Why won’t the national party pay attention?
Israel has Election Day in its Basic Law.
