How to Unseat the Democratic Incumbent in Congress

Make a video and page for this, and put the two voting buttons at top, middle, and bottom. Link to a page that says thank you or else “Lou Correa would appreciate your support, if he had any idea who you are.”

Be nice to them. Nearly everyone I’ve met says they’re glad I’m running and will vote for me. They are all parties. That’s another reason I’d do well in the General Election.

Here’s why a vote for either the Republican or the Democratic candidate keeps the Democrat in office:

With only 22% GOP voters, the Republican Party can’t win, so they compromise with the Democratic Party on a Representative they can live with. Republican candidates are there to give voters false hope and some satisfaction that they did the right thing, but the candidates are usually not viable. What kind of person runs in a situation like that? One who hopes to advance in the Party by letting their name be used? Someone who can take some donations and make a little money? Someone in a coma?

A Republican in a coma would get the same % of votes. 30% – 40% just on party, depending on turnout.

A pillar of the community won’t do any better or worse because voters go by party and Republicans are 22%. There are a few independents, maybe even Democrats who vote Republican, but a combined effort of independent voters and Republicans could unseat the Democratic Party incumbent, and you’ll have to decide which is better: lose by 30 or 40 points in November or vote for the independent this time and break the Democratic Party’s 25-year reign. It’s a reign of millionaires, by the way, not working people like most voters.

I could still lose, but I only need 30% in the Primary. An independent candidate surviving the Primary would get attention and would then pull votes from dissatisfied Democrats (~10% of voters), nearly all Republicans (22% of voters), most independents (~20% of voters), and could win 52%-48%. It’s close, but even a loss this time would wake voters up for 2024. This district hasn’t had a close election since 1996, let’s make one in 2022. It’s about time!

Between 2004 and 2012, Sanchez’s calculated net worth[118] increased by an average of 144 percent per year

Review history in case I haven’t convinced you. Loretta Sanchez defeated Bob Dornan in 1996 by a one-point margin due to spoiler candidates who received 7% of the vote. In the following elections for Representative, she defeated the Republicans by 15 – 20 points, every time. The incumbent, Lou Correa, has extended this pattern, with no close calls.

The 10% or so who will vote for the Socialist candidate this time will likely prefer an independent in the General Election, as a change from the corporate-type professional politician.

Include students as working people. Their job is to learn.

Do a “product features list” – show an election flowchart resulting in the only two possibilities in November.

These are the only two choices.
