I want with all my heart for Joe Kent to lose, but I honestly don't see it happening here. The hatred for Democrats is just too strong. They would elect this white nationalist, election denying, MTG wannabe over any democrat no matter how much damage their vote does, even how much it damages them personally.

I love living in Lewis County, but the political atmosphere here is tough to deal with.

SW Washington is a strange place politically. Parts of it a try deep red, but the influx of people moving in from Oregon, California, and elsewhere, changing the voters. It is a competitive district.


estefaniah t1_iu7tz40 wrote

It is very interesting, all my neighbors have either moved from Portland or from out of state. My neighbor has a sticker that says “I’ll tread where I want” with a mongoose eating a snake. So there is definitely a mix of folks from different backgrounds which I can truly appreciate especially being a minority. It’s a strange environment, there are parts of the county that I don’t even step foot in. If you drive to more rural areas (like where Kent resides), you’ll see the all black American flags flown. I have watched this area change the past few years I’ve been here and am hopeful that Marie will win (even though she is a bit too centrist for my liking).

Why you think Dems don’t care about inflation? They also pay the same price. Crime is also another priority, so is homelessness. On the other hand Republicans create new issue, abortion shouldn’t even be an issue, but they created it and I bet you they won’t do anything about the other issues either if Dems say they care about them as well.

I never realized how much racism I was exposed to till I left TX for Cali (went to school there). I realized how much racism I had, it was sobering to me. I thought I was so open minded but I guess I was, I just needed to learn.

Just as a fun note, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, The PRC, Venezuela, Pinchochet's Chile.... ALL banned labor unions, ALL of them eliminated opposition parties... ALL of them ruled/rule through terror and fervent nationalism.

Most people in this state don't even know about the Everett Massacre or the Technocracy movement. They just have strong opinions about the culture war.

What does that even mean? Are you a bot?

I'm saying that Republicans voters are goddam sheep that think they are revolutionaries but really just crave to live under an authoritarian autocrat.

Dems are weak on most issues and are losing ground because they don't want to cut on education to pay for mass incarceration of the hundreds of thousands of drug addicts.

The GOP will get their way, and the Hegelian dialect tells us that eventually we get the American Night of the Long Knives, and neighborhood purges. It'll probably happen in the next five to ten years after the monetary system collapses.

The American Left doesn't really exist. It's dead and will be a other generation or more until it resurfaces. I think we'll probably get Ecofascism instead though.

Lol? Those aren't quantitative measurements of standard of living. They are issues sure but overall our violent crime rate for the state is still significantly lower than the national average. Property crime and homelessness have increased in the majority if not all cities that have experienced similar growth and economic prosperity as Seattle. There's no mainstream party in the US that's been shown to effectively addresses the underlying causes of that...

Regardless of the issues that do exist it doesn't change that overall we do quite well compared to many of our peers especially being a smaller state.
