When we populate the House and Senate with more politicians like Ed Markey, we will get real middle-class-centric policies.

Watch the full episode here.

This is what a Progressive is supposed to sound like, unapologetically supportive of the American poor and middle-class.

I called a good friend today. We had a chat about the election. He is a very good progressive that believes we should take what we can get. "That does not mean I am not as progressive," he said. I agreed.

"But it is going to be a close race," he said. I disagreed with that.

I reminded him that Hillary won the popular vote by millions. And lost the electoral college by less than 80,000 votes in three states. I do not call that a loss. I call it a dereliction of duty for many reasons I have already blogged about.

Donald Trump knows he is losing. But he is campaigning with assertiveness as if the election is his. And his cult is responding. Most will vote.

Biden is winning. The president has been a quantifiable failure. Democrats need to run with the expectation that they will win big all the while letting Americans know that a landslide win is on each of them doing their job by voting at all cost.

Please get my new book "It's Worth It: How to Talk To Your Right-Wing Relatives, Friends, and Neighbors" today knowing you (1) Get communication techniques & (2) Support Progressive message delivery.

Please join our YouTube channel so we can get the numbers up to open up some more features and reach more folks. Gracias!
