I don’t know about the rest of you, but I feel like today was the most positive I have been since Trump was elected. Everything has just been better- colors are brighter, music sounds better, thinks smell better, just everything is better.
Don’t get me wrong, in the short term we are still fucked, but it feels like Democrats have started to figure out how to fight and how to win, and that is at the local level on solid local issues with good grassroots gotv operations. I think if we continue down this road. instead of trickle down from national candidates helping local ones, we can expect the opposite- turnout for local candidates will trickle up and help our national candidates.
I just feel hopeful for the first time in a long time.
