Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All

Republicans don't believe in good government because they know themselves to be incapable of it.

Never criticize "government" when what you are criticizing is Republicans in government. General expressions of anti-governmentality actually reward the GOP for its lies, crimes, corruption, misconduct, and incompetence. So, when Republicans do wrong, please take that extra little second to specify: "Republican" President, "Republican" run State Legislature, Republican led Congress, Republican appointee... Not "government" -- but "Republicans." 

Democrats believe in the possibility of good government. Always propose the contrast, always attack the Republicans, always make the case for the Democratic alternative, always give enough people something to root for, fight for, build on that you have a winning electoral majority coalition.
