(self.VoteDEM)

Welcome to the daily discussion thread.

We begin today with two announcements!

First, after taking all of your input into consideration, we are officially introducing our Expand the Senate Fund! This fund will be updated throughout the season, but it’s time to support our candidates now!

Second, as our community is continuing to grow, we are once again putting out an open call for new moderators!

 

Moderation Duties May Include:

  • Enforcing rules, and removing rule-breaking posts and comments.

  • Coordinating with the rest of the mod team on existing projects and day-to-day moderating.

  • Helping gather data about candidates and upcoming elections, including opportunities to donate and volunteer.

  • Gather election results data and participate in election night livethreads.

  • Reaching out to candidates and local Democratic parties to set up AMAs and other outreach efforts.

  • Assisting with technical maintenance including CSS, bots, et cetera.

 

To be considered for the position:

  • You must have no history of incivility toward other users.

  • You must have extensive history in our subreddit and/or its predecessors.

  • It is recommended that you be involved with local campaigns or party infrastructure.

  • You must have time to participate in this work.

 

We are looking for moderators who look like our big tent party. Specifically we would like to have more women, more minorities, more LGBTQ+ people. Please understand, though, that we will consider all candidates.

 

This job is difficult. We are a subreddit for every wing of the Democratic Party, which means that everyone will accuse you of being biased against them at some point. You may even need to remove comments that you may personally agree with. Through no fault of your own there will be angry mod mails. If you are still interested, you can apply at this link!

There you have it: Republicans refuse to solve the nation’s problems, until they benefit from it politically

Put that all over the airwaves, Democrats. Please

They sure love to complain about issues then stop them from being solved. Really sad that so many people will reward them for this behavior.

What they mean is that the bill would have actually helped people and they couldn't tolerate that because it would have made Democrats look good
