Mike’s Midterm Tsunami Truth #6
The Easy-to-Digest Republican Party Platform
(A daily series to counter the myth that the Republicans are going to win the House and Senate)
I saw this graphic flying around the internet and thought, “Wow. This says it all.” This ready-made, four-point “Republican Agenda” needs no explanation, no additions.
And yet… it won’t convince any Trumpsters who happen upon it to leave the Big Lie behind on November 8th because they’ve already blinded their eyes to the Truth.
And all you liberal and independent voters reading it now already know that everything in this agenda is absolutely the truth.
So how does it support my belief that in this November’s election we are going to crush the Republicans who tried to overturn our legitimate 2020 election?
Because the way for us to guarantee a whopping victory is to reach out to the 77 million voters who didn’t vote in the past two elections. Studies have shown that when nonvoters are asked their feelings about the major issues of the day, the majority of them lean to the left.
Obviously we’ll never convince 77 million nonvoters to show up on Election Day. But couldn’t we hold out our hand to, say, 3 million of them and welcome them to join us in this historic election? How good would it feel if we turned our 7-million person victory in 2020 to a 10-million voter landslide this November 8th?!
So why am I posting this? Who is this for?
Well, for months now I have been telling you that your job on November 8th is not only for just you to show up and vote, but also to convince 5 new Democratic voters to vote with you — and this graphic is perfect for your “Get out the vote” toolkit.
And how do you find these nonvoters in your life?
They’re all around you! Think of those you know who gave up on voting a long time ago. Make a list. I did.
Then reach out. No judgments. Tell them you understand why they don’t vote. But it’s still their country too!
Then show them this graphic, because they will definitely recognize themselves as the intended victims of the Republican Party platform. The majority of Americans live from paycheck to paycheck. They know all too well who is benefiting from keeping them poor, sick and uneducated. And half of them are women.
Read it over again. Remind yourself what we are fighting for here. And over the next few weeks, let’s organize the nonvoters — the ones we know.
It could make all the difference. (Remember… Hillary lost Michigan by only 2 votes per precinct!) It’s one more example of the power we hold in our hands.

Yes, in 2010 interim elections I knew highly committed, educated progressives who did not vote because they were angry that Obama didn't fulfill all promises in 1 1/2 years during a world financial crisis - so we gave the Tea Party power. Now we need to outnumber the folks who think "Keep her barefoot in the winter and pregnant in the summer" is a guide to marriage.
