@AstorAaron @TheAtlantic @davidfrum That may feel good. In reality, the problem is US. It's apathy. We complain or sit out because we don't get our way. Congress is elected by US. If voter participation is < 50%, we deserve the congress we get. Unless we take power with 60-70% participation, it stays as is #vote.
@AstorAaron @TheAtlantic @davidfrum Things we can do to improve the situation:

1. Only have elections every two years
2. This includes all local ones too - city council, school board, etc
3. Make sure that local elections are in the same years as national ones
4. Then get out and vote every 2 years - no excuses!
@AstorAaron @TheAtlantic @davidfrum How do we do this?

1. 2020, we need to control the states that will give us the majority of the electoral votes
2. This means we need to win governorships and state legislatures
3. So we can determine redistricting
4. Be inclusive/aware of demographic trends for redistricting.
@AstorAaron @TheAtlantic @davidfrum Btw, this applies to #Democrats. Coordinate with all Dems Governors and Sec of States to only hold elections every 2 years, in the same year as national. Lets get party apparatus to do that one thing. I'll bet you get push back. They know less turnout is better for incumbents.
@AstorAaron @TheAtlantic @davidfrum As @Ocasio2018 says, "they have money, we have the people"
@AstorAaron @TheAtlantic @davidfrum @Ocasio2018 Of course this only works if the PEOPLE #vote! Every 2 years at a minimum.
