Decision 2020: Who Should I (We?) Contribute To?

Post by D.A. Ridgely »

What are the races you think even small contributions might aid in destroying the Trump Machine?

I'm going to bite my tongue really hard and throw a few bucks Biden's way, as well as my too-left-for-my-tastes congressman who beat the incumbent piece of shit. Maybe the senate races in Arizona and Maine. After that? *shrug*

I will be repulsed by a Democratically controlled Congress and White House but it will still be an American I can, at least in the sort run, live in.

probably marginal Senate races would be my first choice as well. The GOP needs to eat it hard for McConnellism as much as Trumpism. Because we need a party to oppose Team Blue and the LP isn't going to manage that and the current GOP seems to be worse than Team Blue, so a defeat that breaks the current mold for them would not go amiss.

Yeah, going probably NC, IA, MT and the Georgia ones in that order. I probably would skip over AZ and CO (and probably ME) on the assumption that if they don't flip things haven't gone that well.

I know it's a longshot, but I gave some money to McConnell's opponent. If there's any chance, any chance at all, of removing the motherfucker, I want to take it.

I mean I wanna get rid of Chuck Schumer, too, but not nearly so much as McConnell.

I gave a token donation to Amy Kennedy in south Jersey (house race) because her opponent is a Trump worshiper of the Chris Christie ilk.

Deciding if there is any chance that McConnell could lose. It looks highly unlikely? My friend in Kentucky seems to think it's not worth bothering with/i.e. spend money elsewhere.

Any further thoughts on IA/CO?

Extremely unlikely. Fun to think about, though, and every dollar he has to spend being sure is one that can't go elsewhere.

In terms of schadenfreude, Lindsay Graham losing would be better, though.

CO is closer than I thought it would be, thinking that Hickenlooper would be dunking on Gardner all day, but I think there's basically no chance that Gardner pulls it out. Basically every undecided voter has to break for Gardner.

Maybe they'll all realize they can't vote for someone whose name rhymes with Chickenpooper?

His name being memorably stupid is the only thing people remember about Chickenpooper. That and his continuing opposition to Colorado's most successful policy change in decades.

TABOR? Oh you mean weed. TABOR's kind of been a mess in a lot of ways, although it may save Colorado from the onslaught of Californians. Or not.

But yeah, he needs to stop being a pussy and support federal-level legalization with whatever support is needed for states to maintain whatever laws they decide on.

But yeah, the name and the scooters are pretty much all most people know about the guy.

Except he's...not being a pussy? Pot is the only identifiable position he has ever had on anything, and his position is dead wrong. He has vaguely 'evolved' in the past couple of years for the same reason Obama did on gay marriage: because his campaign staff informed him that his opposition is ballot box poison.

When Gardner is re-elected, the Hick can gracefully bow out of politics. And with no center of gravity or media team to hold him together, he can evaporate into a fine mist.
