I love arguments predicated on the assumption that the party that—despite distinct disadvantages of apportionment, redistricting, geographic distribution, & vote suppression—controls Congress & has won the popular vote 7 of 8 times is doing it all wrong /1 https://t.co/gybc7H81Gk

Rich autocrats bought out the Republican party (years ago) because its utility was obvious to them: For surprising nominal sums, they could increase their own agency and decrease their tax burden. We Democrats don’t have that kind of transparent pay-for-play benefit to offer — and if we somehow found one, we’d probably no longer be Democrats. All we have is hard work, and the knowledge that we’re on the right side of history!
