  •  Belief that it makes a difference ... (4+ / 0-)

    ... is the strongest motivator of all.

    In much of the country, its not possible to elect people on partisan Democratic anger alone.

    •  This is why I no longer vote in every election, (0+ / 0-)

      and believe a lot of people don't vote at all for this same reason.

      There is no better motivation killer than giving the impression that an effort made is useless. President Obama (and other Dems) have used the word hope a lot and it is time for them to just do the actions that would naturally generate it.

      It does not matter that the other party never even mentions the word and could care less about anybody's aspirations but their own. Motivation does not come from voters knowing the other party is this dark cloud full of sad sacks.

      Results matter.
