Party matters because the system has made it so.

 

For another reason for why all Americans who don’t want this country to go any further down the tubes* should vote blue this November, please see this Twitter thread from Alexandra Erin:

Short version, in my words not hers: the sooner we get a majority-Democrat Senate, the sooner Mitch McConnell loses his position of Majority Leader, and the sooner we can try him for treason and I can smash his turtle-ass face in with a frozen pineapple…sorry, where was I going with this? Right, getting Bitch McCandlehead off his throne is a good enough reason to vote for Democrats even if they are, at best, spineless.

Similar rules apply to the House, but with literally all of them up for re-election now. The system has political-party relevance built in. All roads to un-fucking the country go through empowering the party that doesn’t capitalize on voter suppression.

*I was about to say “all Americans who don’t want this country to go straight down the tubes” but let’s be real, we’re already going down the tubes. We can still do better.
