Deep breath. I’m home. No more bagels. My headache’s gone. I’m less nauseous. OK.
Thoughts from Amp:
Just the opposite is true. It is only by changing the country that we will win elections.
We need to stop thinking in terms of winning elections, and start thinking about persuading more of the country to believe our ideas. If we do that, elections will follow.
What does that mean for the left? We still lack an effective left counterpart to the Heritage Foundation and the Fox News Network; by which I mean, we lack effective institutions dedicated not to pushing our candidates but instead to pushing our ideas. And that’s killing us.
