    there ARE good Dems. But there aren't enough of them. And until there are, we have to do more than what we're doing now.

    To keep what you propose from happening--that they all go down together in the shitfall, and you are so absolutely right--we need to do more than "GOTV" and write LTEs and get involved in the compromised System. We need to start by occupying Media, so that their lies don't take hold.

    We simply cannot give ANY OF THEM anything to hide behind. They can hide behind the "Lucy and the Football" motif. They can even hide behind their team. And they do both of those things via Messenger. That messenger has to be neutralized, and that has to start today.

    I passionately believe, with all my heart, that we are spinning our wheels until we do something to stop all these coordinated lies.

    It is time to #Occupy Media.

      I'm with you.

      I'm expecting this to be one of the ugliest fights in modern Democratic Party history once it gets engaged, and I'm not sure we are going to win.

      But we have to fight like losing isn't an option.

      Because it's not.

      Once Social Security is in play, everything is. And once it's on the table, always on the table, nothing will ever be 'off the table'.

      I am from the Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner wing of the Democratic Party
