Video of the day -- rural America

The Liberal Redneck argues that many rural Americans aren't hard-core Trumpanzees and are reachable.  Worth a listen.

Well, he's right. Not all people who live in rural America ARE Trumpanzees. But they have proven that they do vote against their own best interests. Over and over. There needs to be outreach to those places, though. Especially in red states. It may be worth the try.

He has some very good points.

Here's why the Red Dog Democrats (I call 'em Red Dog, not Blue Dog, like the MSM does - 'cause there ain't nothing "BLUE" about 'em!) lose in Red State races, or lose after 1 term:
Because, if people want a Republican, they want a REAL Republican, and NOT Republican Light!!!!!

so he's right that the Democratic Party hasn't really tried running on a liberal/progressive agenda in years!
Instead, like I said, we run Republican Light candidates!

Look at Doug Jones!
He knew tRUMP had ZERO chance of the RepubliKKKLANS in the Senate actually impeaching him, no matter what his vote was.
And yet, he voted "YES!" to impeach tRUMP! !!!!
Not "No," or abstained, like a lot of Dem's thought he would.
Jones showed REAL cojones!

I sent this to my cranky brother, who keeps insisting that the Dems have to run Amy Klobuchar or we'll lose the south and the midwest. I don't know whether the guy in the video is right, but he's not wrong.

Yours very crankily,

There's plenty wrong with the Democrats, and this guy has nailed it. Right now, the concern is that there's plenty MORE wrong with Trump and his enablers in the Republican party. But after that mess gets straightened out, there really does have to be concern for somehow working together as a country to address the real, far-reaching, average voter's priority issues - one of which is NOT rich whites in Washington of EITHER party. Sometimes the road ahead just seems overwhelmingly difficult, doesn't it?

Great video. Thanks for that.
